So my sister got a plane from one of my friends friends who doesn't have the time anymore. It was really beat up ( as you will see in his flight videos). I fixed it for her and it is now hers officially. There was no wind at that time. Perfect flying wearer. She flew on New Year's Eve, so she really ended the year with a bang. She flew spectacular and I'm so proud of her. Here are the videos of the previous owners flights.


And here's her flight. I know no one with their first flights as smooth as this

Congrats. My first flight with the sky surfer was horrible. It spent the night in a tree.

some people are just lucky and gifted or just had time on a simulator. i know my first flight ended in two spirals and a destroyed plane. then i bought a sim and flew 10x better after a month of practicing with virtual planes. ever since then, i only crash my planes intentionally. you know, when you just get sick of seeing the same plane and you just want to see it explode into a bunch of foam as it hits the ground, cement wall, football goal post, tree.

awesome piloting sister fish.
Nothing said I had to crash

Awesome

Its just foam not perfection. build it close to the plans and it will fly, then learn to customize. But most of all, JUST HAVE FUN!!!!!
Cuz tooling around is just not my style of flying. Full stick and full travel control surfaces.

I Did have to make her practice on the sim or she would have flown sooner it i knew that the plane wouldn't last long. And the plane was in horrible shape when we got it. The last flight video of his was the last flight before I fixed it. The control rods for the elevator and rudder are bent in the tubes so they don't go very smoothly. The motor was just taped to the plane. And I think if he watched Dave's videos, he would have been ok. His elevator control horn was on the bottom instead of the top and the control rod sleeves were al loose. He also lost the nuts for the clevises which made it unflyable. Luckily I've gone through so many of those I had a remains laying around

In her dreams. With her ice skating and school, she will never be as good as me. I'm to far ahead of her.
