Not now I've stripped everything out and thrown the foam away, no.

It was all sorts of broken mate, twisted and torn. Practically every part of it had damage. Thought it was time to let it go.

I suppose I could get both.

I'll crowd fund the Hawk and set up a Kickstarter for the wing.

I've sent an email to the birthday fairy about the Hawk.

Hopefully I've been a good boy this year.

New plane get!

Been looking at these for ages and then the other day they popped up in a sale so I crumbled:

Proper all-terrain plane. Comes with floats, massive wheels for flying off rough ground as well as an alternate canopy for adding cameras etc.

Got my fancy mini camera through today.

Yeah, it's a Plug N Fly, or rather fettle, sand, drill, fettle, wrestle, plug, plug, plug, plug, plug, plug, unplug, unplug, unplug, plug, plug, plug, fettle more and then fly. Still only a hour's work though, went together really nicely as these things go. And the bag of screws were missing but I had some that would work.

Look forward to seeing this in action.

Going to get back into my Bixler, might even use the motor / esc from the mini skyhunter to give it a little more oomph. It'll be a little heavier once the Cyclops Storm is in there.

Had a good fly today despite a stupid error that grounded my new Mini Hornet wing early on (all glued back and modifications made for next time).

Rounded the day off following MarkG's new plane, a Durafly Tundra.

So now I'm looking at these as I'm missing my Vampire :( :

http://www.redsradiocontrol.com/spring- ... 1054-p.asp

But leaning more towards this:

Fly well with a 2200 3s lipo apparently too so that's convenient.

Banggood have a really nice looking FMS 1100 Zero in the EU warehouse with an extra 20% off too... my birthday money is screaming at everything at the moment.

Already got a nice scale Skyraider to fly but I love Zeroes.

Nice video! All those planes look good. You should just buy them all and then decide which is your favourite.

I knew you'd be along with the right advice.

Leaning towards the Mig but it's the only one not in stock, and costs a little more.

Going to be sensible and smash up my Skyraider first.
