They are pretty boring to watch John. Especially if the wind blows a little and you end up siting and talking for two days.

But it gets real exciting if you can get pretty close to a record, and then start bashing all your settings trying to get that last MPH out of it. Then you flip and bend the tabs and rudder and get to start all over again dialing it back in. And if your good enough to break a record, it's VERY exciting. You know when you have a good run,-----but was it enough??? Waiting for the timer to call out the numbers-----is it low enough??? sounds close but now he has the calculator out!!! Yep you got it! BUT NOW, can you lower it a little more? Time for more bashing!!!!

It was really fun watching my little ORCA absolutely flying around the course thanks to that big TP motor, and a prop that had been cut from every angle! I was afraid at any moment it would flip and break into, but it held together. Thanks to Brad Schafer for driving it for me. I just don't have the nerves or vision for that anymore.

I thought that my little P was flying until Doug got out that big ugly azz T boat (one day he's gonna let me paint that thing for him). 16.988 in the 1/4 is flying! That's quicker than all the FE hydros except for David Halls T hydro.
