    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    Down thrust is right on the money. Control throws are the same as when it had the Saito 180 on it. Flew and landed great. What has changed is the DLE 35 and the freaking Gail force winds. The Saito as you know is a beast motor. The 35 is pretty light. The Saito is just shy of 3 pounds, the 35 is 2.02 pounds. Huge difference. Plus I dont have the heavy four blade prop and tank killer spinner up front. So the reduced 1 plus pounds off the nose made a huge difference combined with the wind. No worries. She flew and really well. And looks bad ass in the air. Minor weight correction and she will be golden.

    Had a very successful event at the NEW AMA Expo West venue at the Pomona Fairplex!!! Not only did we fly foamies, but us vendors were granted special access to fly giant scale on the new outdoor flight line. It certainly brought an exciting new twist to the same old show.

    Finally went flying, temps just below 50F, slight shifting breeze made it kinda unique and fun, no rain! got about 30min of flying with the 73" laser on the new Redline Oil. I must say it doesn't smell as good as the STHL Ultra. Engine sounded great after the first 10 min. Didn't have to adjust any needles, or anything. No excess residue. So a pretty easy switch to the king of two cycle oils.
