    Participated in the Black Hills Huckfest from the 20th thru 24th flying 20cc amd 85cc Yaks with a 72 JR10x. Only pilot with other than 24 radio, at least nobody else on MY channel.
     


  2. Yeah...it's a lot safer to fly FM now since nearly everybody is 2.4.....I remember the those days when you had to make sure you weren't on the same channel with somebody else

    I don't miss the 72 days. I like the simplicity of 2.4, plus the features modern 2.4 radios have. I don't think I'll ever use more than half of what my 8FGS has...
     


  4. Anyone that has ever been shot down, feels the same way!!!! lol

    You know, I noticed that when I switched to 2.4, I stopped crashing airplanes!!

    Not burst bubble, but two of us were shot down at the same time while there was a "nitro challenge" (car races) about 100 yards behind us. There was I bet a hundred radios on at the time:(

    Went out and flew my 30cc Aeroworks Freestyle this evening. Got to the field ~5:30 and wind was pretty high and gusty, but as the sun crept down the winds died down and it was damn near perfect. ~7:30 had my motor quit but I was high so had plenty of time to take it around and land, as a matter of fact had to crab it to keep it on the runway. My first ever crab to shed altitude on approach! Yay!



    As I was about to clean up a buddy who'd been flying his 48" Extreme Flight Extra was boxing it up and asked me if I wanted fly something fun, his Crack Yak. I have a clunky EPP foamy from Grayson Hobbies but had never had a chance with a CY, well once but that was about a year ago and my 3D skills were still forming. Well I've been working hard for a year and my skills are night and day better now. All I can say is FRIGGIN WOW! Crack is right. I was giddy like a little school girl after flying that thing!



    I know what my next plane will be!



    Oh, and because I hung around flying his CY, I wound up cutting the grass in the dark tonight!
     


  9. I have been debating getting one and I have never heard anything bad about a Crack Yak...it's probably the best and most highly recommended foamy on the market...plus it wont break the bank either...after reading your post I think I will get one...:smile-new:

    I've been told the Value Hobby foamies are just as good and way cheaper. The buddy who recommended the VH foamie, [MENTION=469]Yak Attack[/MENTION], is an amazing pilot so I'm inclined to believe him, but I want to try his VH foamie before I pull the trigger.
