Wow. That was amazing. I almost NEVER watch a flying video from start to finish, but that one I did.
For those of us who know how to fly RC, I think it's even more impressive than those who don't know.

I'd give Wild Fred's left nut to be able to fly half as well as that guy.

I wonder if someone with skills like thst gets bored with the hobby. I'm always trying to learn new stuff or at least get better. It's easy, because I've still got a lot of stuff to work on.

I think the real question is, what are you doing with WF's genetalia in your possession..... :scared:
Scratch built slabs, nitro power, any questions!! :rockon:

I still struggle with keeping my eyes on my own airplane in the sky...

Ant nothing wrong with fattes,its the weight that gets out of hand. a spacewalker still looks good,wonder how light WF could make one,out of foam,of course.

And to add,my long ago dead astrohog,fully sheeted including airfoil tail,with most wing almost flat and painted and a bit heavy flew very well indeed. The 72in span helped for shure,and thick wing to. Never tried to hoover it,never heard of such at the time,dont think the fox 74 be up to it no way. Got a kit,may build one day,wonder how light it could be,by the way,4 st jr servos and 600ma batt,good for 3 flights before charge,but then,what did we know.

i could wf an astrohog. get rid of all the "crash proofong" like i did on my kougar, fox 74 would torque roll shit outa it. trick is build it to handle flight loads, not crash loads.

bring a kit down with you. and a senior or seniorita kit if you got. and a doubler 2? i'd love one of those. we work out some deals. 4 star 1.20? i know how to make the rudder actually work on the 4 star series. yeah, wf knows.even with cheap swervos, it'll fly better than anything you flown!

You have a mod for the 4 star that lets the wings come apart? Wouldn't mind having one if I didn't have to have a surfboard wing.....

Now we got some sparks,WF fattes blow cjs mind hovering after take off,and they never see it coming. WF 2piece tail make that 120 much easier to move,wing stays strong,break point behind wing,best of all worlds i think,dont see why could not work on 4 star.
