That looks pretty sweet. Ive read good things about fly-fly planes. Their 3meter fox is supposed to be one of the best bang for your buck sloper/gliders out there.Too bad our lhs doesnt stock more of their gliders. I dont think I'd be able to pass up the fox. Hopefully they will. Right now its mostly just the warbirds in stock.

all of my in flight videos use the keycam. Unfortunately its been so long since I bought mine I cant remember which seller I got it from. I know mines the 808 #3 keycam which is not hi-def. If you want hi-def then the #16 keycam is the one you want.

A lot of good info on them is here http://www.chucklohr.com/808

He even points out who the good & bad sellers are, good luck

Thanks RT. I just found this one, which comes from California. It's only $19.95, but it records in .avi format. I wonder if that is compatible with YouTube???

Well, I went into Hobby People today to buy some foam safe kicker, and wouldn't you know it, they had the above glider on the shelf. Now it's on a shelf in my closet, hidden from my wife .

Hiding planes from the wife,hehe.......your an addict!!!

Besides its always easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Im building a new slope wing myself. Its got a thinner airfoil, wings have more sweep & I made a ballast tube for it for those days when the wind is really ripping. Im hoping this will make it faster

I hope to attach it out on the Super Sky Surfer wing and shoot a video of the Go Pro as it's shooting a video. DUMB, or what?? I'm also going to attach it to my old Easy Star and try to fly it here at the house. Now, that IS dumb!

I was hoping for tomorrow, but Weather.com is not cooperating. Looks like it will be too windy.
