I just find them boring and end up going daft which leads to a pile of bits. Latest trick is with my Habu Fly overhead till out of sight, cut the throttle and spin waiting for it to re-appear, it's going to go wrong but at least it's exciting whilst the 700E 3GX is cooling down

I love when I forget that low stick while inverted on a plank gets me nowhere.

I have fun with my funcub and funjet to cool my nerves between heli flights.

I still remember the first time I rolled my Fun Cub over for an inverted pass and put the "collective stick" down, unforchantly I didn't get too much negative pitch out of the Fun Cub!

Anyone bringing their planks to Ircha?

Planes are a good change of pace. There's isn't too much of a palette for an airplane by way of tricks. Can you do all of the following: hover, harrier 8's, flat spin, knife edge 8's & circles, hammerheads, waterfalls, torque rolls, rollers, 4-point and snap rolls? Pretty impressive. Consider a 4-D plank? Agreed though. Can't see how anybody could make a day of it with a plane. Maybe 15 years ago.

I have a couple of planes but I have to drive 45 mins upstate to get to a field big enough to take off and land without much obstacles....no wonder I still prefer helis due to more control over it and the ease of building and changing parts on it compared to using glue to put planks together.

I'm starting to think Westchester county is a discourging county for the RC community....
