Another busy Friday evening at the gym this week, with RC models of all types enjoying the warm and dry indoor airspace. It was great to see JP joining us this week, and look forward to seeing him next time! Apparently, he got some stick time on one of George's quads.
 
Chris brought a box full of freeflight Peanut Scale models, and with the help of Tom, Vanessa, and Greg Masters, we made a video!

This week, we had no less than FOUR of the new E-Flite Vapor Lite HPs flying together - along with a pair of night Vapors and an Ember II. It was quite a sight!
 
Reviews are "mixed" on this latest Vapor iteration. It's very agile, with plenty of power for hovering, loops, etc.. However, the airframe is rather flimsy, and tends to distort at "higher" speeds (it's all relative, folks... ) with unpredictable results. Prop shaft is fragile, landing gear is very fragile!
 
Two videos this week:
 
R/C - Vapor Lite HPs (x4)
Freeflight - Peanut scale Fleet Canuck

A busy evening again this week, after a break in the action last Friday (Feb 2).
 
Earl brought his new (Peanut) freeflight scale model of the rare "J-2" Piper Cub, but still has some trimming "issues". Sadly, we didn't get a photo.
 
This week's video features Chris' Peanut scale Stinson 108-1 and his new Piper Vagabond being expertly launched by Earl & Gilbert. Thanks guys!
 
Freeflight - More peanuts, please...
