Anyone flying today? I'm going to test out a new boat at Silver Lake then maybe swing by the school for a few flights if someone will be there.

Well this rain has really allowed me to get a few projects done. My 3DHS 41" edge's air frame is done. My FT3D is ready to go with a new 30a. I built a FT Spitfire a few weeks ago and just need to set up my control surfaces.

I bought a 48" stick off of a friend that had seen better days. It had alot of rash and hastily done repairs (I think theres a whole botttle of 2 part epoxy in the nose). I completely stripped the covering and fixed the wing from rough handing and wing tip ground aerobatics. I started to pull the covering of the tail and realized that it was the main support. I ended up completely cutting off the tail and will be rebuiding the stabilizers from scratch. Hopefully a Eflite 15 and 60a will be enough to hoss it around. Feels good to work with balsa again.

I even broke of the T4 and started cleaning it up and doing some maintenance. I ordered a SC10 as a christmas present to myself and will be doing a 17.5T brushless conversion to both after the holidays.

Default I don't understand....

I was always told the military never allowed our birds to make contrails or installed devices for that because of the enemy not being able to spot us yet.... why is this C-17 globemaster doing something weird at 4:20....

Contrails do not always happen, but when they do, they are normal. It is nothing more than the interaction of the jet engine exhaust and moisture in the air. Having worked on aircraft for 30 years, I can tell you that nothing sinister is going on. Some areas you fly through are just more conducive to making big contrails.

looks cool dude, I am considering this plane too. my Nano Cpx uses these lipos. I recently got my christmas gift earlier when the Black Friday sales were up.... Eflite UMS Pitts S-1 is so cool, I flew it last week in Indiana , it is nice doing tight moves with no stall effects .... low and inverted great!

I am bringing something out tomorrow I think, low winds!!!

Cool! The only RC thing I got for Christmas is the Blade 200 QX, which I purchased with a Black Friday deal through A-Main Hobbies.

I had a great time with the boats today. The maiden of the Small Bolt went great. Then I went over to the school and things didn't go so well. I smacked up my 450Pro due to some strange glitch. The heli never got airborne. It tipped over on spool up and self destructed.

I am not deterred. I will be back at it again tomorrow morning in the same order: boats then aircraft.

I felt bad about the 450 really bummed it could not fly.... Good to hang out though after xmas, i was praying for 1 nice day to romp on the helis, i got some good ones in 180cfx, 2 with my 450, mustang flights and 2 trainers, hope to see more pilots next year guys, these types of days you cannot sweep away, use em for trimming your aircraft!

I took a closer look at the heli when I got home. The damage isn't that bad, new blades and feathering shaft and main shaft and I'll be back in business. I don't think the tail took any damage. I'll check it again later.

Glad it wasn't too serious. I wasn't able to make it out this weekend either. I've had this flu bug for over a week now. I've almost kicked it, but now my wife has it. HAPPY HOLIDAYS GUYS! 🎅🎄🎉
