    Took the little hobby king foamie yak out for a flight. Flew really well. Needs a bigger elevator as max throw produced big lazy loops. Otherwise it felt really good.

    Well took the Inverse 33 out to day and did the maiden flight with it. What a nice plane really do like it, every control surface is very sensitive and powerful. Just have to get use to it but one good flying machine. Will have add a little more expo to it and cut back on the throws a little.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    That is so awesome! Good for you! Did I tell ya or what? Only one thing I would do different than you. Don't back the throws off. Give that lil girl all she's got. Dial in expo and set your dual/triple rates. She'll calm down like an old gray mare if you want her to. But with a flip of a switch she will become as alive as Jennifer Beal in Flashdance. She'll dance across the sky with really great authoritive stability like you wouldn't expect.

    I agree with stang. Crank in all the throw it can give you then set a lower rate switch. I have gotten to where I like around 30% expo on all surfaces except rudder which I always run zero expo on.

    Had a great day at the field today. There was almost zero wind all day. Unfortunately that made it pretty toasty when you were standing out there flying, it made the high 80's feel pretty nasty when you add in the humidity. I've sweated way less on 100 degree days with a good breeze. The lack of wind sure made the flying awesome though.

    There were a few guys today that didn't have an awesome outing. One older guy lost a brand new Freewing Avanti on it's second flight. He flew it straight into the ground, it was pretty ugly. After that he crashed a smaller electric Extra into a pilot cage when landing. Before I got there a friend of mine crashed a Trex 700 heli hard. Not a good day for those guys.

    I richened the low end of the GP61 in the green Edge. It started better, but the midrange is beginning to suck.

    Well a buddy of mine is selling his Avanti for $200 but he is in Alaska so shipping it would prolly be pretty costly.
