The SC10 is nice, but I already have a Traxxas Slayer Nitro SCT. Thanks for the offer though I am also thinking of getting the E-Revo with the Mamba Max brushless system. It's a bit more expensive than the E-Maxx, so you know decisions...decisions

I have a 450 3D on the way. Wanted something to bang around. Plus, the price was right!

Any pics of yours?

I try, I really do!

Here is the last pic of the entire heli. I upgraded the stock plastic main and tail blade grips and anti-rotation bracket to aluminum. I also added some Curtis Youngblood main and tail carbon fiber blades

It was a great morning for glider flying!

I do not care how much you paid for it; it is still a toy.

I believe your right!!! I flew my new Traxxas.... yes Traxxas Qr-1 outside 3 flights and my Blade SR 1 flight. The traxxas is more of a indoor bird, it likes to slide after your release the sticks, so if your rudder is cranked up, your game must be on or say bye bye trying to bring it back after a full speed pass by you. I fly these micro quads ball out btw

Strange that they used the Slash for the video and not their dragsters.

Lol Jerry. I was bored today and read some old post earlier from late 2010. Ouch I was a bully and ass to you guys and I am a asshat like meantioned before..... Anyways...enough of nonsense. I was sort of interested AMA and maybe a club size plane to fly? Where do I start in a proper fashion. O2tac what steps did you start and is there some freedom besides a traffic pattern when flying by yourself at sandtown? Thx
