8's
I got 7 flights in today. All figure 8's. Fast and furious. The wind was blowing pretty hard. I took the advice of another member and started learning to fly in the wind. Its scarey but definitely doable. Ill see if i can get a buddy to film sometime this week. Check the Corpus Christi wind. Its always blowin here. Ill get a vid on here soon.

Slider -- Not sure ?
This is the Esky forum isn't it???? Keep it Esky for the contests it's only fair to everyone here...

What kind of figure 8 are you looking for Doug, A nice smooth scale type or the sloppy snap turn type the 3D guys do????

Tom..... No "D" flying....

Would you believe we got an inch of the white stuff here in good ole Alabama last night? Yeah, its messy slush now.

Unfortunately I cannot do a figure 8 yet. But I can hover a pack tail in!

Ok so I just spent the last 30 minutes on the sim and I can report that there will be no fig-8s in the near future or maybe ever. Me and FF do not get along.

rccarguy- Yes, but never post vids
Yup, can do, but for vids I would need a video cam, ain't got one...

Got lots of nice digital still cameras, and come to think of it, one of them may do video. If it does, I'll set it up on the tripod in the backyard and see if I can capture the action, you'll be amazed at how small of an area I fly the King 2 in

Weather here in Mass has been pretty crappy of late as Doug noted, and tomorrow while dry will have extreme wind according to the weather person on TV, I'm starting to have Heli withdrawl symptoms I think

I did manage to burn a half tank of fuel in the new Zoom 450 Pro out back this morning between rain showers, can't wait for decent day to get it over to the big field
