    So, I've flown 2 crack yaks and 1 value hobby knock off. One CY was sweet flying and probably worth it. But it has some Hitec HS-65 servos in it which were probably a big factor in it. The other CY was using slower and less powerful so it wasn't that much better than the VH.



    It's hard to not go with the VH.

    I only got in one flight after flying the Swift a few times. The Swift is so much slower that the Hyperbipe caught me off guard. It wasn't trimmed out yet so it sort of skidded out of site as I was trying to get it straight but it's pretty quick and was nice and straight by the time it landed. From what I've read they don't last very long as the leading edge of the bottom wing has a big cutout where the aileron servos go and the bottom wings are known to snap there. The mod people do is to lay some carbon fiber across the area so maybe I'll do that at some point. I think I'm going to the park again in the morning, I'll post more after that.



    The Swift is from TechOne and it flies OK though I think mine needs a couple of degrees of up thrust in the motor mount. The ESC I'm using is crap so that's gotta be changed also.



    Foamies are fun.

    It was a great day for flying this morning. About 65 degrees until about 9:00 a.m. And then only about upper 70's to lower 80's until around noon. I took the 260 out to burn a little gas and dance with the scattered clouds. The 157CS was blazing out ponies and chomping on the bit to let her go. The more I fly this plane, the more I am convinced I will never fly anything small again. So forgiving and so capable at the same time. It far exceeds my capabilities that's for sure. But, just too darn fun to not fly it. I hate to admit it, but I am seriously considering making this my everyday flyer. Nothing wrong with that right? A few pictures were taken while I was there. Thought I would share.
