If I only had wings on this bitch! The front wheel works like a rudder! Front brake is "down elevator", the throttle is up elevator!.

As you can see, last Sunday, the wind stopped enough to fly the Ultra Stick. I got a couple flights in and also took the video below. One of the few openings in the last 5 months! - feeling shocked

Here's a shot of my youngest, Beau. His son is below. Like father like son! Both raced at High Point this weekend! It's what they do when it's to windy to fly. Of course, Beau got some flying in! - feeling afraid

Awesome video. Lots of Slow Motion! I think it was a staged crash! lol

E-Flite Cessna 150 - MIDAIR CRASH

Josh and TJ check out the E-Flite Cessna 150...and then they crash. More info: https://www.horizonhobby.com/product/airplanes/airplanes-14501--1/bind-n-fly/c...

I74 Lot of these guys that do demo/promo You tube vids, get models free, or next to nothing,, plus they get paid from You tube. That's probably why the guys in this vid. didn't get ''bent'' when they crashed. Watched another vid from them a few years back, where they picked up a ''really nice'' 3 - 4 meter ''very rare'' sailplane at a swap meet , then proceeded to butcher it, & then pretty much...

4/9/18 - ''April 9th''. We got around 3-1/2 inches of snow overnight ! Supposed to get into the mid 70's Fri. afternoon for a bit... If it's dry enough by then, we will probably go slope flying that afternoon, as the wind speed & direction are supposed to be ideal. Hope to try out the ''old'' 2.1m Sig Obsession warmliner, that I restored this winter. Winds are supposed to be around 22mph, perfect for that ''heavy'' model, & the ''old'' purple Sig Ninja - slope racer !!

Smokin Joe Good luck. We still have the nasty weather back here in PA. 2 weeks ago

Wonder if today is going to end up being another record low ... Looks like Tornado watches later today & tomorrow for the W -SW part of the state ,''must be a lot warmer there''. Snow still probable here Sun. 2 weeks ago

Found a guy that might trade me a Piper Cherokee 140 for my 97 Corvette. I haven't decided yet. It sure looks tempting! It looks something like Tony's model! - feeling lucky
