Argh. I just discovered that the comments are no longer showing up and I have no idea why. Will investigate in a bit. Sorry everyone...

Just wanted to drop a quick note to everyone that this site and the reviews are still very much alive. This has been a crazy summer and I haven't been able to get out to the field as much as I'd like. Shaky Thumbs was telling me I'm falling behind on the reviews and that's true but there are some good reasons.

Reason number one: I'm still waiting on a couple of planes I ordered in July and let me tell you I am not happy about it *shakes fist at Nitroplanes*.

Reason number two: I hate to admit it but the last two planes I set out to review I crashed on takeoff and they are in need of repair. That really set me back, since I haven't been able to get back out to the field to re-launch the battered planes.

Reason number three: This is probably the biggest reason of them all but I decided to make my lovely assistant a full time helper not only in reviews, but in life. We're getting married on Sunday and so life has been a bit nutty leading up to that. Back in the day when friends got married and they said they were busy I used to think 'what's the big deal?'...haha now I know. Seems like nearly every weekend has been running around doing stuff or sleeping. Sometimes sleep is good. So after a short time away I'll be back on the horse. I am adding a new section to the reviews called "Vendor Reviews" and believe me, I have a lot to say about the good, bad and ugly vendors.


If anyone reads this before Sunday wish me luck and fly a plane in my honor :)

It has been a long time since I was this excited for an airplane release. I have long wanted an ME-262 to fly but haven't had the time to build my own. I hope this comes out before the summer runs out! I will keep you posted when I learn more news.  In the meantime, check out this video!

Well that didn't last long. The plane went up and then fell down. Was hoping to dust it off and get back in the air but the motor shaft sheered off in the process. So much for that. Not sure what to think about the lack of control when the plane got in the air, I hope there aren't issues with E-Flite's receivers...will do more testing tomorrow.


 
E-Flite UMX Carbon Cub has arrived! Print E-mail

Happy Friday to everyone, and a great Friday indeed. The new UMX Carbon Cub is in my hands and ready to be flown. Batteries are charged, but I'm waiting for the wind to die down and for my lovely assistant to get on the camera. Hopefully we can fly this thing either tonight or first thing tomorrow morning.


First Impressions: Solid construction, flaps and lights are cool. I'm digging the actual battery hatch, but curious how long it will hold up. It looks solid, and the AS3X technology is squirming with every twist and turn of the plane. Here's to a happy flight!
