    It does. I have flown five or six other DLG's. They have all flown great but the Flitz Classic is just so smooth and easy to fly.

    I've been looking at the Falcon 1.5m. A flying buddy here got one shipped from Ukraine in a wooden box along with a deviant. Have you flown one per chance?

    Today was a nice calm 40 degree morning. My older Brother and I want down to the long Fair Grounds parking lot we fly from. I Test flew my new E-flite V-1200 pylon plane, which has a 48" wing span, flaps and retracts. The Battery used was a RT 6c 4400, 70c. We got it on the radar gun at 147 mph. flying straight and level. WOW !!!!! this one rocks. reminds me of the Q 500's at 150 to 170 mph with the nelson 40. but still doesn't hold a candle to the Quarter 40 mustang. I ended up making 5 passes before I made the landing, with full flaps power off to get it down I am very impresses with this new Bird much faster than my other racer's. V-900 and the Skynetic Havok. the V-1200 is a sweet plane to land on a paved runway, beats the heck out of the belly landers you have to hand launch. then come in on the Belly. I give it Two thumbs UP. The V-1200 satisfices my need, my need for speed LOL!!!!!. My brother could not keep up with it to get a video on my iPhone X

    Made it out to the field yesterday afternoon for a few flights with the Python. Happy to say I’m finally pleased with the airplane!

    A group of Extreme Flight pilots was visiting from around the Southeast.
    All I can say is AMAZING flying skills were on display, along with the new airframes.

    To see one example, check out the video I posted here...

    Another good afternoon of flying yesterday. Continue to be happy with the Python 100.
    Stable flyer on low rates and way more capable than I am on high rates!
    New prop just pulls and pulls on the vertical, so I think the upgrades are done, for now.;)

    Well despite our sub tropical storm and atmospheric river event, the skies opened up 34F, basically zero wind... with nine items on my to-do list for the day, I managed to check them all off including one 15min flight with the ARS. Cold and humid, so my fingers said nope, you’re done.

    the storm managed to flip the bench. And throw our cones all over the place. During the week we saw 70kts, and 7” or rain in 36hrs. Our neighboring SE community of Haines got 9” of rain and a landslide that took put a few houses... couple people are still unaccounted for. They think there was a crack in the mountain that channeled rain and separated it from the hillside. Hope some closure will happen soon for those families. What a crazy event. Super sad too.

    No flying last Sunday, local football field replaced their artificial turf and we grabbed a few thousand square feet. More photos as the install finishes.
