Title: R/C anyone? Sunday the 19th at 67th and Northern 10am to Noon
Post by: Conundrum on April 14, 2015, 10:00:37 PM
My Brother, friend Tomas (Xtasy) and I are bringing some R/C toys with us to the retention basin there near the dog park to play.

If off-roading wasn't already an expensive hobby, I inherited a Traxxas Slash 4x4 which put a bug into me to take on other projects. lol

I just finished putting together a badly damaged Nitro Trainer Plane and need to get it trimmed and flying good. Having little experience I expect to crash, but hey you never know. I also don't know if I got the engine tuned properly, I ran one tank through it messing with the mixture screws till it seemed to be right. Until it is brought to full temp I won't know.

I have a trainer radio and hope to let others try their hand in sharing the inexperience. lol Depends on my ability to set it up right.  ;D

So we'll at least have our Traxxas Slashes there and maybe some drones weather permitting. I might even bring a rebuilt and untested 3D Helicopter I crashed for a test run. Depends on how long the Plane lasts as to if I fly it. It scares the crap out of me, just youtube helo accidents and you'll see what I mean.  :o Also if it's too windy I won't be able to fly anything.

Well more the merrier and would love to meet up with a few more people on my side of town. Only going for a couple hours at least, it's going to be like 91 or something, feels like summer already.

Spotted a nice Gen2 today with a Personalized license plate that started with CT, I can't remember the rest now...

They want some pretty pennies for bodies and few come prepainted. I have a Baja body that I just can't bring myself to destroy, I bought paint but yet to have done it. I haven't seen any Nissan bodies, ford Raptor is like $75 at my local hobby shop. ::)
