    Put in just a little stick time over the weekend. New airplane maiden and then took the always awesome Gernot Extra 330Sc to the snowy mountains for a little windy shenanigans.

    How do you like the Acromaster "Pro" for agility/stability/power? Got my eye on it ya know. Always room for another "chunk O foam" ;).

    It's an awesome flying airplane. I personally can't get enough of it, even though it was blowing ~15mph constant this weekend :oblong:



    As you can see it's got plenty of power and maneuverability. I won't lie, it will wing rock some in high alpha, but I have a feeling my CG is a bit far forward even with 1/4oz of lead added to the tail. And this is on 3s 2700 LiPo. If I flew it less aggressively it would fly awesome on 3s 2200 packs.

    Took my UMX Timber out for its maiden flight today. Nice and cold with it being a mix of rain, sleet, and snow but I couldnt resist. Little joker is a blast and I advise everyone to pick one up.

    I was listening to the recording of the live turbo timber Q & A and they said the UMX timber is the best selling UMX they have.
    That says quite a lot. I have one and must say for a micro it flies excellent.

    Yeah I agree. It’s amazing how well such a tiny little plane flys.

    When I was flying yesterday. A fellow club member was concerned that he won’t be able to fit a larger plane in this car. Toyota Corolla maybe? I looked at him and said challenge accepted. Took the wings off my 75” edge and with the tail in the front passenger seat and the spinner in the rear left passenger door it fit like a glove. It totoally blew his socks off with amazement. He was worried I would hurt my plane, so I told him “you’re careful with your planes right?” This larger one is no different! I’m at level Tetris master pro!

    night flight with the umx timber the other day. Took it out again this morning and put a few more flights on it before my car charger crapped out on me. Was having a blast just doing low inverted passes. Two full batteries where burned only flying inverted.

    Went out the field with a plane but just way to wind and still the temperature was hovering around the freezing point so did not take long to get really cold. So we decided to see if we get all the equipment running and ready for the summer. Well after four hours we got the push mower and one of ridding mowers going but the roller was a no go we have to come back and work on it, the second riding mower we just could not get running either so we have come back another day we were just frozen and our hands were num and our feet frozen. Live to fight another day.
