I have already placed an order for the 315mm blades. I also threw in some new 68mm tail blades too. Hopefully that will solve the problem.

I will be out at Schuttie 8 or 9 ish, I am going to solder up a adapter to use my nano tech batts with those yellow connectors. .. Barry how do I use heat shrink in the space between the gap, because I can't leave it bear unless I tape something in there?

I got my new blades yesterday. I am going tout for a test flight later today. If the Mains don't work out I may try some 305's. The tails are now 68mm up from 62mm

I have a Proboat Mini-V in my collection that I haven't done anything with since I obtained a couple of years ago. You might motivate me to put it in the water. I also have a sailboat and a couple of seaplanes that need to get wet.

Had a blast with these no wind conditions this morning, finally dialed n 2 planes, let's hope it is nice like this tomorrow guys.... btw the beach is going no where, the kids are having their last weekend of vacation before school. So why be aggravated with high volume crowds and traffic? Lord have mercy....

I'm not a big fan of quads and I really don't need any more helis, but I may look into this to see what all the fuss is about

Be neat to see if/when a version of the collective pitch quad (forgot what guy built it) makes it to market.

same here, I just flew v202 toy quad here in Lake Station IL, just good for kicks and some reverse orientation stuff, other than that, it rides shotgun on the passenger floor board

Newjak, sorry couldn't fly sunday, 1200 miles in 1 1/2 days was brutal on me, I am looking to do some saturday flying .... check out this video , always seems to get me pumped up

I didn't fly either. since nobody else was coming out I stayed home instead of taking that drive. Got some much needed rest. I did just spool up my EC-135 with the new blades. No real test flight yet.
