The Wingtote Medium Heli Bag is a great solution for storing and transporting your helicopter.

The bag comes with re-inforced plastic sides (all 4 corners) that slide into zippered "pockets" inside the bag. Once they are installed (5 minutes of work), they turn the bag into a pretty solid box. The lid closes via dual zippers, which makes it easy to open quickly. The Wingtote Heli Bag has both a short carrying handle...

A simple "Thank You" to a fellow member.

I would like to say another heart felt "Thanks" to member "SPORK". He once again has come to my rescue dealing with a scammer and has secured a refund for me that I thought impossible. He has asked me to keep it low tone to which I will comply. I would say simply that those who do not think he should get involved have not had the great experience of having their hard earned money returned to them when there was little hope. Thanx again my friend. Hats off to you.

To SIM or not to SIM

Posted 02-21-2008 at 04:47 PM by TGibe (The Grass Is Brown Everywhere)

I need to get back on the SIM as the last time I was out I got a little freaked out fearing high-speed contact with mother earth. After stressing over this for a few days, trying to understand why, I think it is becaseu I haven't been on the SIM in weeks...

But the SIM is nowhere near the amount of fun as flying, so I hold out for that...

Hopefully, I can start practicing on the SIM again now that I have forward flight and stall turns down. I guess I should start practicing...

It has been a long and excruciating winter here in Canada. I was forced to pack in my little 450se in early November as it had gotten to the point were it hurt me and my lipos to fly. No point in flying if all the fun is sucked right out along with the lipo power and the moisture in my hands.

I've been lucky that during this no-fly time i have been very busy with school and work so at least I'am not bored. With most of the projects and such winding down in early march this will all...

Finally crashed the T-Rex...

Yupp, I finally got it over with.... After a good 30+ event free flights, I crashed. Completely my own fault, too. No dumb-thumb, no unexpected failure, just a stupid idea...

Flew the T-Rex at a local park with a huge soccer field. Set up at a concrete picnic table, walked the 450 to the field and took off. Right around where I would expect the battery timer to go off, I decided I could "walk" the heli back to the table. Slowly hovered it back to the table and decided I...
