New maneuver Tic-flip-toc and battery came unplugged

Posted 03-04-2008 at 09:41 AM by xStatiCa

Last Sunday at the field I was doing a maneuver that is like the two stops of a tic-toc on the two ends of maneuver with a flip in the middle of it spread over about 15 feet. You just keep going back and forth like a tic-toc. It looks something like below and requires full +12 pitch with a lower(for trex 600 standards) 1900 head speed for quite a bit of the maneuver. I don't know if I invented something new or it has already been done before .


I did this...

Winter flying in Michigan

Posted 03-03-2008 at 02:35 PM by ltfdrescue

Hello All!

This is my first Blog!

The winter has been exceptionally hard here in michigan. They do have funfly's in golf domes weekly here but are usually on thursday nights(when I work) or you have to drive across the state.

This is a video of probably my 6th or 7th flight from Sat 3/1.-Temp-20 degree's, winds 5-10mph.

Anyways... Happy Flying and Hurry Up Spring!

Remember the first time you were going kiss a girl? The first time were going to get behind the wheel of your dad's car and solo on a short trip to the 7-11? or Possibly, the first time you interviewed for that dream job?

Got that feeling in your head? Yeah? Well that's just what I was feeling yesterday when I was ready to put my Trex 450se into the air for the first time.

Alittle history before I recount my first flight. A few years ago I purchased a Nexus 30 gas powered...

wind sucks!

Posted 03-03-2008 at 08:19 AM by mysticmead (Learning to Fly... one crash at a time)

ok.. for you guys that can fly in damn near any weather bite me I'm still learning so to me.. wind = sucks. Cobra1002, gatherman and I went out yesterday to burn some electrons and it was a beautiful day... sunny... just a few clouds in the sky and the winds were dead calm.. until we got ready to fly that is... once we got to the field the winds picked up... a gentle 4mph wind is no biggie... but this was 5mph gusting to about 15mph...and it kept changing directions on us.

Got a new Canopy

Posted 02-29-2008 at 06:24 AM by aussiemick (Micks corner)

My new Agloco Canopy from Canomod arrived today.

Now I'm going to have to get a set of the Red (orange) landing skids.

Oh well I'm sure there is something else I will need!

Hopefully I will get more than a few flights out of this canopy.
