Awesome flying, Larry! Where do you live, anyway?

I'm in the Quad City area of Iowa this week. Heading back to Colorado this evening. Can't wait to fly there, it's been too damn windy and cold here!

But, I did get a few corn field videos while here.

I need to keep practicing so I can fly like Larry. I'll look again, but what FC are you using?

Something new on the build table

Twisted Hobbys Crack Yak Mini. 80 grams ready to fly. 4 channels. Pretty amazing little plane.

Don't watch the videos....the mini is even better than the lite and the lite was fabulous. It has a HUGE envelope from walking speed to OMG.

I bought the whole kit from TH and I think it was $159 or so including 2 batteries. I ordered 5 more batts from HK and they arrived yesterday. I've spent 20 minutes or less getting it to what you see in the photo. I'm sure it'll be done in less than 2 hours total build time. Looks like the worst part is the control arm links which they use shrink tube and tiny Z bends. Looks very fiddly in the video.

Too bad, I thought that would have made a nice first plane for me. They show it flying so gracefully too.
