Happy Thanksgiving. Hope everyone had a great one.
I never saw this thread while searching before but my name is Cam and I'm from Little Creek. I have a few small DTFB foamys and a 3DHS 41" 540 waiting on the power systems. I've flown at Schutte a few times by myself and haven't seen anyone else flying. Where and when is everyone flying now?

Welcome aboard! We usually fly at Postelwait Middle School on the weekends. Mostly on Sunday mornings with an occasional Saturday thrown in. A few of us also fly at Schutte on some weekday mornings. We would be happy to fly with you. Now that you have found us we post when we are planning to fly so that we don't end up flying alone.

No problem. I just got back from flying. I got to meet Sahara54. The two of us did not have a stellar day of flying. I managed to bash my Skytrainer after a very hard touch and go. The battery ejected and the plane went in nose first. I got away with just a broken prop.

I'll let Sahara54 tell his story if he chooses.

I was able to get in a decent 5 min flight before I had a radio glitch and went into a slow roll into the field near Eagle Heights with my Bloody Wonder. Broken prop and a little bit of crinkled foam. Newjak arrived as I was doing my walk of shame back to the car. New prop and I was back in the air. Felt really twitchy so I brought it in to make some adjustments and broke the prop adapter on landing. Cut my losses and didnt even break out my Delta. Only thing I did successfully was charge 1 pack while I was there. Lol. .

Sorry you guys didn't have a stellar day. I did manage to make it to the school, but it was around 2pm, so you guys had already left. I got 3 flights out of my Blade 300 CFX. I have it almost set up perfectly, I think

Nice. Glad things are working for you. I had my NYPD heli with me today but I didn't put it in the air. I ended up just running my Rustler. I'll be back at it soon. Its gonna be warm tomorrow morning maybe I'll squeeze in a few flights.

I'm trying real hard to get the entire fleet into "Flight Ready" condition. I just got in the servos for my P-47 winter project. I have to search for suitable retracts next.

Cool! I just ordered my "Christmas Present" with a cyber Monday deal from A-Main Hobbies. I purchased the E-Flite Blade 200 QX BL, two extra lipos, and the optional 720p HD camera that will mount to the bottom of the quad. It looks like a lot of fun and should take decent pictures and video as well

Here is a pic of it doing a flip

I'm keeping a close eye on Tower and Hobbyking's sales for my "Christmas present". Planning my next boat and airplane purchase.

Nice! There are some good deals out there right now. I have wanted the 200 QX for a while now and I got 10% off my entire order, which was a nice bonus
