Another big air sesson tonight.

Even managed a square loop with a roll on each side......just. Wasn't pretty, but made it. 3 (up,down and bottom) sides were ok but getting that roll on the top side without falling out was tough.

it's the carbon in the airframe, routing of the aerial is important

Stick a hole in the side of the fuz and bring the aerial down the outside... have you got spoilers sorted on it Ryan? or are you still on your old transmitter?

ff8 on ebay, easy to set up the kinda stuff we need, i find the JR harder, but theres also a 9x2 there, lastly a FF9. never used one but popular with power fliers

what construction is your new one? the green black ones used to be carbon

Sounds like it's an easy fix Ryan althoug slowing it down may cost you a little. Stan is selling a a JR 2610 trani with battery for 75. It has mixing capabilites (Hexo uses one and i've got a couple of them). Good kit, especially for the price.

Really pleased you've gpot here back it one piece. :af
