I mounted a carbon fiber skid-plate to the bottom of my Magnum. The RC car chassis are good for this-

Oh No[:-]..........i didn't see anything in the rules and application stating that a maiden had to be performed prior to posting a picture..........doh!!

figured since i have been building and flying since 1963 i would be OK...........haven't crashed a plane either since flying RC back in 69'..............

well i'd withdraw the pic, but it flew right off the board about 6 hours ago....no, i take it back, it needed a 1/2 turn of the right aileron clevis to set the trim on my 12z back to nuetral......darn, i'll get it right on bird 2 tho

oh yeah, the BSE 50 is smokin[8D]

No worries about the post before maiden. I just always have had bad luck with planes I did that with. Sounds like Razor has had the same experience LOL.[sm=bananahead.gif] I've got a new Seeker that I'm dying to post a pic of but am afraid of that Karma chick getting me.

Ultra cote is what I use the most of and have been very pleased with it so far. Lately I'm getting into more glass and paint. If the maiden goes well tomorrow I'll post a pic

Sorry- There is no rule I just was making fun of you as if that was a jinx! LOL

I was always superstitious that if I posted the photo I would end up:

Take-offs: 1
Landings: 0

LOL

An OS .61 is 8-9 oz heavier[X(], and does not wind like this one does. This is a "SB .40 size case short stroke engiene". As far as speed goes, I am not sure, and will not gestimate, but it is turning well over 15,000 with a 10-8 APC. It not only goes like a scalded rabbit, but you can also pull it into acelerated "Unlimited" vertical untill you can't see it no more. I am hoping to find someone with a "Modern Video Camera" and maybe get some footage for you guys. A couple guys in the club have 8MM "OLD" camera's.

Depending on what prop I run, I can get all of them !! [sm=tongue_smile.gif]

Only problem is I aint got the time to get there. One day soon I will, but my 3 little ones are still little.

How you been Vicman ???

Any new videos from your neck of the woods ?

Doing pretty good. Not getting around the whole country like I did for a while but things are ok.
No vids at the moment. Hopefully we can come up with a few from the Rally in a few weeks.
I really like that little key fob camera that made a vid in Utah a little while back.
