Horrayyyyyy! It was 55 degrees last evening and mild winds. Got three flights in with the Ultra Stick! It's been over a month. I can still fly! I noticed I was seeing a couple planes, so I need to wear my glasses next time! - feeling happy

I74 I know all about mono wings looking like Bi planes, Joe.. ''Sucks getting old'' ..... Noticed there was a fly on the right wing tip, LOL... It must of been fairly warm. 3 hours 57 minutes ago

I74 Noticed something else Joe,, looks like you might be running the old Anderson power pole / ''Light speed'' connectors. Did you put those on ?? I started using those back in the 80's, & still use them for certain applications.. Still really good connectors . 3 hours 46 minutes ago

Made out like a fat cat the other day. Got this little 29.5 span P-51: 350 - RTF at the hobby shop for 25 bucks !! It was their discontinued display model. Put in my own radio gear,& did a bunch of repairs & strengthening upgrades ect. AUW is 12.55 ozs. Supposed to hit 40+f by Fri. hope to try it out. Wing has a lot of ''aft'' bottom camber for low speed stability, & it should be pretty fast when desired also

Smokin Joe Hell of a deal! Good luck Friday! 4 days ago

I74 Thanks Joe, looks like it will be Sat. now for the maiden. Made 3 - 3/4 inch wide foam skids for belly landing in the snow. One screws to the front underside center wing bolt, & the other 2 attach into the front LG mount slots with a cut up credit card, & contour up around the LE of the wings to the top leading edges. Slides pretty good across the living room carpet with out snagging. LOL These... Show more 4 days ago

I74 Maiden was a success !! Winds were average of around 9 mph, it handled it pretty well for being so light & small. Just gave it 1 click down elev., & 3 clicks left aileron, & added a touch more expo to those. Flight time wasn't as good as I thought it would be though, only got around 4 1/2 min., but lipos are weaker in colder temps. & the cheap included pack is only a 20c also.''Can't complain for the...

Smokin Joe I just bought 4 2200 mah turnigy 35c batteries., boy are they junk compared to the other 30c batteries that I used. I guess you get good batches of batteries and sometimes you get a bad batch. Big difference. I don't thing I am going to buy the turnigy's anymore. 5 hours 42 minutes ago

I74 The G - Force 2200 3s 40c packs from Value Hobby is what I use, & highly recommend, Joe. They are on sale for $16.90 ea. & shipping isn't much either. These packs rock !!, & are just as good ''or better'',, as a lot of 2600's of lower c ratings. The SKU, W/ deans connector, is : RFI-LP-0715. They have them with EC3 conns. also............................ From what I hear, trying to return stuff... Show more 5 hours ago

Hey Krazy Karl, It looks like Colton made it to the "Big Time". I remember watching him fly the secret jet down at Finleyville International. Thanks for introducing me and Bill to him. Great Flyer! When is your next project?

My winter plane! Seaplane flew great last winter even though I had the pusher prop on backwards. A little weak on power, but it flew! Now that I have it on right, we will see how it flys as soon as it gets above freezing! Mabey next weekend!

I74 That looks like it should be potentially pretty quick Jeff, with the small wing & narrow chord ect. Bet it's going to be a bunch faster !! 2 weeks ago
