HR,
I have had my kids do that with a fixed wing plane. It teaches them to experiment with making a movement, looking at the reaction of the plane, then using that reaction to know what direction the plane is going.

Today I flew the Heliartist 500D fuse. Flew pretty decent in the wind. I'm trying out 2 batteries in parallel w/ it. 2 batteries that are not the same size. So far so good. I checked it at home w/ a current probe and the larger battery w/ the lower internal resistance drains more than the other and at the end of the flight, there is a 1A flow from the smaller battery to the bigger one until I unplug it (which does take me that long).

Yeah we did. Mike and I got in 3 pack each at lunch. The weather was pretty nice except for the super bright sun and of course the wind at the end. Here is a short video I snuck in when Mike wasn't looking

Today was my unpaid holiday. GREAT weather for once.
got in a few flights early this morning, then my wife met me there and we flew planks. She got 3 flights in on the buddy box. I flew my 75cc gas plank.
snaproll to knifedge on takeoff :

Rolling circle.

Then 8 minutes into the 3rd flight my throttle was stuck at 1/4 throttle. Enough that I could fly forward but too much to try to land and ditch in the weeds. I flew in a circle downwind at one end of the runway till someone gave me a good idea. Fly inverted and pull up and down once and a while to try to kill the engine. About 2 minutes of that sure enough it died, but when I was moving more downwind. I was lucky I had about 15mph of head wind. The plane has excellent stall charactoristics so I ended up in clumpy grass and just aluminum landing gear to bend back. Turns out the linkage to the carb throttle arm had a nut that did not have a washer or nylon lock nut.

Then we played 9 holes of golf near by. Great day off. I need to retire

GREAT day here as well, flew 12 packs on the 450
Nothing new or adventurous just having fun and working on the things I am uncomfortable with.
It's great to have blue skies, I have problems with orientation high and away with gray skies so it was fun to do big high loops etc with the good visibility.

I took a 1/2 day and flew the 600N.

It's the first flight since I changed the mixing arms from 3D to stable.

Big difference! ironically for me, I can fly more freely, banking and stuff B/C it's feels right now.

I love the smell of nitro burning.

2. Aren't those "Tryans" servos too?
3. What would you replace them with?
4. Is this enough questions?
