Took my e-flite Fokker D-7 out for the first time this morning.(first non-windy day and after cataract surgery on tues).Lemme tell you. It is so good to be able to see once more and fly. The plane flies great after trimming out and no crashes! Gonna try the nieuport either sat or sun if weather allows. Happy flying! D

Got the power system for my micro tripe put together. Battery, 2 servos, ESC, motor, prop, and RX weigh 1oz. Gonna try a different RX and try to drop 5 more grams of weight.

I put that DR1 on my Tower wishlist Marty and Tower sent an email saying it was deleted from my list. I don't know if that means they're gonna have it or not.

Have you guys seen the one from Hobby King? It actually appears to be a bit more scale than the Tower one.

$69.00

Does not get much better than that right there.

I so wish they could put some of those planes on a world tour or something. I'd love to see it live. Along with the SE5a that's down there.

Price isn't bad but the shipping will kill you! Check out the reviews posted on HK too. Marty

Use slow download. Some place have stopped the slow download and charge to download. Try this one. http://translate.google.com/translat...=pt%7Cen&hl=en

Default Cam toss

Tiger Moth was in flight, the prop broke caused some major vibration which tossed the cam out and tumbled to earth. See if you can find the Tiger Moth on her dead stick approach in one of the frames. Was interesting to see the plane react when the prop broke.

Had some fun yesterday with my FlyZone Albatross. A real easy plane to fly, compared to a couple other micros I have, but won't take as much wind.

Default 3 out of 4 aint bad!

Sunday, was flying my SIG D-VII around in some semi windy conditions for that plane, actually was not doing bad. I decided to put a 2.4G HC orange boxe in her. She binded and all controls were good. At about 100 feet she went into a straight down attitude and smashed into the ground. Damage was not that bad, the fuse broke 2 inches aft of the firewall and the motor mount separated, and the top wing came off the struts. All very repairable. And of course my pilot had bailed! found him about 10 feet from crash. Really sad. Re-hooked up the electrics, rebinded....and did a range check. I would loose signal at about 20 paces. The servos (rudder and elevator) would almost go to full deflection every time at 20 paces. I dialed in another orange box, no issues. I checked each of the boxes and only one was bad. Ooooo and guess what......if I had done range check the time..I wouldnt be typing right now!

No hurry crashing one for me. LOL I am still working on the Bristol Scout. I finally got one I can not rebuild. Crashed my Bristol M1C in the woods over a year ago. Wind finally tore it out the the tree tops. Only got about half or less of the foam back, rest is in small pieces scattered in the woods. Landing gear and tail fins look ok. If I build new wings and fuselage, use the landing gear and tail fins can I call it a rebuild? LOL

Bummer, it appears to have been removed.

Would like to see it.

I been trying to get the Breguet 14 to fly good. It is a handfull in the air. Have crashed it several times. Finally I desided with power on the motor it was stalling. I give the motor a lot more down thrust. The prop angle now looks terrible but it flys. Maybe I can use the cowl to hide most of the down angle of the prop shaft. It seems to want to bank right from level flight. Takes a lot more stick to turn left than right. Now working to find a fix for that problem.
