What happened to Chellie? Too cold? It's only been minus 2 degrees at the field (at least it feels like it)

Try this one: This guy rolls off the top of a mountain dead stick and then lands 1500 ft down the mountain. I would need my "depends."

Well, Tristar finally laid the Xeno to rest this weekend...in spectacular fashion. I think that he thought he was back out on the slopes and a gust of wind would come up and bail him out.

That flight will forever be etched in my mind. Once it went into a death spiral & dissappeared behind the cliffs & brad turned off his radio & started walking away that should have been the end of it.

But like a phoenix rising from the ashes... 10 seconds later there it appeared rising like a feather gently blowing & lifting so easily in the breeze. Seemingly flying on its own I could hardly believe what I was seeing.

At first I couldnt even shout out "there....its there" look.
Crazy man

Im taking what their giving cuz' Im slopeing for a living

Well I needed the receiver for the Squall I purchased at the AMA show . Heck, it's another elevon plane, so I'll just change the name of the model on my transmitter and I'll be good to go...

Looking at the pieces now, if I just had the plastic center section and canopy, I could get it going again .
