So true Danno.

Every man can be a jet pilot, and not every man can be a funny man, SKYDVE is definitely not a funny man.

skydve76 – this thread pertains to the model jet pilot, we omit model, RC, UAV, etc. because we’re on RC website and we welcome those with far greater responsibility, the full scale jet pilots… it’s fun to see these guys in good spirit, in fact we all have the same passion if I’m not mistaken. If you’re asking me if it’s real, yes, it is real aircraft, real jet-powered UAV or simply jet. The operator is called pilot, there are different kind of pilots for small scale and full scale aircraft. We used to designate them based on the weight and application of a vehicle. Maybe you’ve noticed that sometimes they called them toy when playing around but it doesn’t mean it’s a toy because the reality this is not for children, these aircraft is capable of handling great amount of energy and power, before you build and fly these kind of aircraft, you need lots of skills and knowledge which takes years to fully understand depending on your background. But even if you knew, there’s always something to learn on this aircraft. Hope you’re clear about that… Some of the post here are the consequence when your fly jet, some represent themselves and others, whatever it is I found out that the author is correct for saying "The Truth is funnier than fiction". You can come and fly with us on the field so you can experience that this is more than that when you see these aircraft take to the sky and with people around you.

You ask everyone else to land so you can take off and fly in circles.

I personally have never asked anyone to land, and I couldn't fly in a circle if I wanted to... What were you flying when you were asked to land and by who and where, and what type of flight pattern were you involved in when this request was presented to you ???... Burden of proof is on you concerning this occurrence. Witnesses with Affidavit's would be helpful concerning these allegations..... I know a good Lawyer if you need one !!!! [>:]

He's a good lawyer Danno but he's also a jet pilot..... So he will have to recuse himself in the above-mentioned case....

Yep... I agree.

I've been flying RC for +30 years, and haven't had any nervous shakes for as long as I can remember. BUT... when I put up my turbine... it takes the first 3 minutes to calm down. (i'm new to turbines)

You know you are an "RC" Jet pilot when you have spent more on just your turbine than your buddy did on his whole Extra 3whatever, and youre wingspan is the size of his elevator.

I remember before my first turbine flight, I started with EDFs on an 18 lb turbine airframe. I think I got too confident for a light wing loading trainer with Thrust/Weight ratio around 50%. Forgot to check CG position that it was specified for turbine with fuel tank forward and empty. It was very intense, my finger and knees were all shaking because the aircraft rotates quickly and climb, then stall, and I lost all the controls. The good part it banks and with help of rudder it dives and regained control but too close to the ground. I went back to the runway trying to hold elevator while oscillating. It was a big lesson.
