I saw them both at my LHS. The EVIL shop owner was tempting me with the Ultra Stick, he knows I want one. I just finished a V-Diamond and a Cermark BD-5. The ultra stick 25 will have to wait until the end of August.

Now I cant wait until August!!

I've got a MUS and it IS like street drugs!!!! I'm gonna score with 'the man' at 3DHobbies on a 25e. It all puts a new spin on the word "DEALER!!!" (And I was wondering why he had that grin on his face when I got the MUS!!! He could feel the long greens coming out of my bank account!!! Ka-ching!!!!)

I saw the new 25E today at my LHS... just as I was buying a few pieces to finish off my new MUS... I was actually commenting to the "dealer" how a drug habbit would be cheaper!

20 days... since my previous post about buying a few parts to finish off my MUS.. well, at the field today, I really finished it off. I'm one of those 40-something folks that takes a while to re-learn things he did when he was a kid. I had to do some minor repairs on the plane over the past few days, then took it out today to see how it flew. It had a lot of "down" in it, and after 3 flights of chasing it back up and to the right, I started to try and trim it up a bit. I suppose, in hindsight, I should have just dealt with the handling problems until somebody more experienced came out and could help trim it for me. This is so frustrating. I feel like I'm 90% there, I can take off, fly it around, landings are generally no problem, but then when one of these things happens, it just makes me want to give it up.

I won't.. I'll be back at the LHS tomorrow to get another MUS and move the electronics over, I'll be back in the air tomorrow for $90, and that ain't a terrible day, but just having to go back again is a defeat in itself.

Sorry to ramble on, I just needed to get this one off my chest.

Hate to hear the problems you've been having. Sure some CA and balsa won't fix it??

Duct tape bother! Duct tape!

Seriously though. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it. Tenacity is a good trait in this hobby.

I was longingly looking at the US25e in my LHS. I could hear the balsa singing to me.....

Although I really want a 40 or 60 sized stick to put my big honking AXi's in.

:D

Its certainlhy fixable, but considering for $90, I can be back in the air in 2 hours, there's too much damage to offset that. I had just finished repairing and recovering the wing. The fuse is certainly fixable, probably would only take an hour or so. But the wing is too far gone this time. I think a new wing is about $60, so I'll throw in another $30 and save TONS of time.

I wish I had bought a large enough motor to step up to the US25e, but its only 277 wats and a 35 watt controller. the MUS is really fun when its in the air, so I think the best way to recover is to get back in the air ASAP.
Wish me luck!!

Well hang in there. You'll get it. Have fun and that may just override the other feelings.
