  2. The Uproar had its day today! It ended up being way windier than expected though. Steady 20 mph winds. She flew with zero trim inputs needed! I did have to work for about 30 minutes to get the needle settings in a spot that allowed good transitions with a reliable idle. My buddy brought his new 40 Uproar v2 our to play as well. Good afternoon![​IMG]

    So back when I purchased my replacement Behemoth Yak (2), Steve also had something I just felt I could not live without. What is it you ask? Well duh...if it has wings, I will fly it. LOL. Actually $20.00 bucks brought this little foamy guy home. Yes, Kelly....I said "foam". Ugh.... I put it to the side until I got a few irons out of the fire. Finally got a chance to toss a battery at it....(It came complete with motor and esc. Just needed to get some servos for it.) Once it was assembled, I plugged a 3s 1500mah battery I had laying around and gave it a whirl. Oh...um, ok...this is fun. So I charged the battery, took it out again yesterday. Too much fun. One more flight today made me realize quite quickly, I am going to invest in a couple more bigger batteries. Maybe some Pulse 3s 2100 or 2200 mah batteries. Needless to say, I got to fly the last two days.

    I think I am going to fly the wings off of it. When it is done, I am going to look into getting a new airframe. Maybe the Twisted Hobbies 39" 330sc.
    I was actually very impressed at how much fun these things could be.

    Especially when you can slip down to your local family park one mile away from your house. About 900 million acres of manicured grass and no one around cuz of the chilly temps.

    49dimes Damn I'm hungry

    See :big-grin:. That was not that hard to say :).

    The two chunks of foam I got are a blast to fly and help me get tuned up for the big stuff like my 26cc Edge :epic:.

    Sorry boys tried the foam stuff maybe it was the plane or manufacturer but I did not like it but liked the ease of electrics. So I bought a Addiction XL and that has been one of the most enjoyable aeroplanes I have ever had. And I will always own one just for the ease to go for a quick flight at any time.

    Keep looking outside and at the weather forecast but does not look good this site is going to be of limits to me as long as this weather holds up the boys from the south are going to own it for a while. I had better get my winter plane out and start looking for the skies so that they can get installed.
