    I just finished uploading a video I took this morning. We went out early 5 am to beat the heat The video was of the 4th flight I made with it today. The first three I made numerous touch and go's, flaps up, 1/2 flaps, full flap. On this last flight I took the video of, right around the last low fly by with full flaps gear up I started climbing out, put the flaps up at the same time and it took a quick dive. To say the least I was not ready for that kind of excitement. LOL !!!! :ooh?:

    That is one of the best photo's we have taken. I really like How well the E-Flite SU-30 Flies. I am surprised How quite it is for a twin 70 mm EDF's. The SU-30 is one of the heaviest for it's size the single 80 mm ED's I have are noisier but lighter, I noticed I have to fly with more power than my other EDF's The SU-30 is going to take a little getting used to. with power off it sinks like a rock. on landing I have to carry more power than all the others I have. Thanks for the comment Mike. Taking out a couple Choppers in about an hour. My Blade 250, and my Blade 550 Just got back into the Choppers here about 2 months ago. flying these newer choppers is like learning how to fly all over again. You know what they say it is hard to teach an old Dog new Trick LOL!!!!!!

  8. Attended 18th annual "Wings Over Piper" fun fly at the William T Piper Memorial Airport located in Lock Haven PA. It is a three day event however I could only attend on day 1 due to previous plans. It is a 3 hour drive from my home, left at 5 AM and got back at 7 PM. Here are photos of the pit and flight line taken from a tower. All in all a great turn out. I'm sure there will be move fliers on Saturday and Sunday. IMG_0836.JPG IMG_0837.JPG IMG_0838.JPG
