Alright Nova!!! Have a great maiden. Todays weather here in NJ is absolutely awesome for Fpv'ing. Right now theres not a cloud in the sky. i hope to send my assassin up real high with the keychain camera attached and also test the dvd in the v4 attitudes i got to replace the old v1 attitudes.

One thing for me to remember......sunscreen,sunscreen,sunscreen. a month ago i forgot and seriously suffered after 5 hr's haging out.

Hey tobydogs, Glad you are having good weather hope you got some good stick time. The wing maiden ended with some breakage the wing was way under powered and when I would toss it out it would go out and stall and head straight down the nose and servos took a beating. I am going to order some more motors and the wing will work. The glide test went great nice and straight and would glide right in and cg was perfect but I will have to adjust that when I get the bigger motor.

Bummer Nova, But sounds like you'll have another go in no time. I have a wing from crash test hobby thats called the Pinata. It's not meant for speed and death spiraled in saturday. 0 damage. got 10 flights in yesterday and went to the field again this afternoon. Would have been great if I had remembered the goggles for FPV'ing.
Mondays family day!! BBQ and hanging out. Also rain in the forecast.

Well the new parts came in today and I have the wing ready for another try I tried for a maiden this evening but everywhere I fly had something going on and I don't like doing maiden flights around a bunch of people just in case of a OH CRAP momenteek: Once I get them dialed in I don't mind a few bystanders.
