As much as I love my giant scale 3D planes, it's time to try something new and add to the addiction. I'm thinking speed and I'm thinking hotliner.

Could this be a good entry-level plane to get the...

After a week in a balmy Silicon Valley, I come back to 15F and a stiff breeze. Seriously, can someone make this stop? I have a garage full of planes and I can't fly them!

Trainers DO get boring once you've got your flying figured out, but that's OK, because a pile of crushed balsa would have been even more boring. :)

Rolling harriers are my nemesis. I find the high energy maneuvers, like KE-spins and poptops pretty easy to do, especially on my bigger planes.

I guess I didn't get the memo about Spektrum being bad, because I have at least 20 planes, ranging from tiny foamies to 120cc giant scale gassers flying on Spektrum. :)

<flamebait>BTW... If you're putting out 2.8V @ 44A, your Ri is about 18mOhm. So not only are your A123s overweight and under-volted, they're over-ohmed too</flamebait> :)

Yup. People think a flu is just like a bad cold. Nothing could be more wrong. It can be really, really nasty.

Luckily I haven't caught the flu since I started getting the shot about 20 years ago.
