Default Loving the Sonic Combat Modules!

My buddy and I decided that a good first plane to learn no would be the Aerobird 3, so we each grabbed one the week before Christmas. It was only a few days of flying before we strapped the Sonic Combat Modules to the AB3 and went after it.

It's been so much fun! Today we had our first mid air collision, which was exciting! We hit wing to wing, both planes immediatly started their fall back to earth, my buddy was able to level out and fly away. I ran out of air space about 10 ft. to early and hit the turf. It didn't do much damage and I was back up and flying in a few minutes.

These planes are durable as I'll get out, and maneuver just right for us amateur pilots. We are planning on order the Parkzone Trojans this week, and we will eventually be modifing them to accept the sonic combat modules.

Anyways, if you want a good time with some buddies. Go buy a couple of the cheap Hobbyzone / Parkzone planes that have the X-Port module and have air to air combat.

SWEET!

I second that. The entertainment per dollar from the Aerobird 3 has been great and the combat module adds some competitiveness to park flying. For the most part when "shot" there is usually plenty of time to keep the bird in the air, and I think the evasive maneuvering has accelerated my flying skill.

Physically knocking dirt4dinner out of the sky and flying away was kinda fun too Oh well my day to be one bloodied from a mid-air beatdown will come.

There is a interface available that allows the PZ X-port setup to be used with "regular" radios. I bought on and it works great in a PZ BF-109 bare frame with a Hitec Optic radio. It's called the EZ-XPORT and is made by a fellow RC pilot in Texas. It cost $35.00 + $5.00 shipping.

I didn't put a link because I am not sure of the policy here,if it is acceptable I can post it.

It isn't the mistake that causes the crash - it's the time it takes to realize that it WAS a mistake!!

Really? You must have much softer ground where you are. Whenever my 'Bird went down it almost always required an extensive repair or replacement. The wings were the worst: the slightest crease in the foam almost guaranteed the wing would fold under stress. Or sometimes just out of spite! Until I learned to glue a CF spar to the underside, that is.

That plane taught me more about repair/reinforcement than it ever did about flying.

Here is the review of the EZ-XPORT from the "other" site:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...light=ez+xport

The builder of the item doesn't have a website,rather does business via e-mail and he accepts paypal through the same addy. Just a heads up, he don't talk a lot doing business but he does deliver pretty fast. His contact addy is:
