Kewl, Your getting there my friend Wrench66 when he started out, was a little afraid of the wind, After Use Renegades got done with him, about 2 months later, Now, we cant drag him out of the wind

My batteries are charged and I'm ready to go.................but it's raining pretty hard up here - it awakened me at 4 AM Weather.com is showing only a 10% chance of rain......we'll just have to cross our fingers. I doubt Jim would post here, he really dislikes computers. I send him an email and half the time he calls me instead of just replying to the email. He's one of the best scratch builders around - right now he's building a 136" Fournier motor glider from a set of plans. It will have a 4120 AXI motor, flaps, spoilers, etc.

Hi Richard here is the information that I Promised you

http://www.rc-products.net/default.asp

Tell Rusty that Chellie sent you, the Mavrick cap and Mavrick MKII are great Fliers.

SERVOS

LIPO, its best to use the ZIPPY OR RHINO lipos, they work the best for the money.
http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...5C_Lipoly_Pack

motor combo, use a 7x6 SF prop and a prop saver 3mm the 18 amp esc is ok to use, if using a 2.4 radio, use a seperate UBEC

OR If you want to get your parts sooner, buy them from Heads Up Rc, normally about 2 to 3 days to get you parts in.

Hi Chellie: It was GREAT meeting you this morning! That was pretty cold, but I still had fun and that's what it's all about. I hope you'll come out often and fly with us - and thanks for letting me fly the Mavrick. I will be ordering two as soon as I get off WattFlyer - love that plane. No more staying home on windy days any more! Hope to see you again soon.
Rich
PS Gary took the photo just before you arrived.

Hey RT: You missed some fun today. I met Chellie (very nice lady) and she let me fly her Mavrick foamy. I liked it so much I ordered two of them - they're only $25! I'll be at the field tomorrow, weather permitting.

Default Rc crash

Chellie: Did you see this crash by the Goodwine RC group at Chino this year? I was there shooting a DVD and got a much better video than this one on You Tube.
