Talking Re: Blue Foamie

Andrew,

How could you possibly tell us about this fantastic experiment and then tell us we have to wait several weeks to find out the result.

I believe that Andrew and his aircraft should be hogtied, thrown into a trunk (any trunk will do) and taken to the nearest indoor venue for testing at someones earliest convenience. He should not be set free until a complete report has been filed on this forum.

Thanks Marc it was nice to meet you as well and I pay Gaston to talk about me like that but I'm getting low on funds so it might end drastically!! After that crash with the yak I went home and practiced the rolling harrier loop for about 5hrs until the girlfriend booted my ass off the sim. It seemed so much easier in NorthBay I wonder if it was the hieght?????

Are you flying again next weekend??

Andrew.

Re: Blue Foamie

Hey Andrew, have you ever had a nick name?? This is getting confusing hahaha. Even our initials are the same. I'm happy my friend Andrew Egan doesn't chime in to often too or my brain would melt.

Well, this coming Saturday is the mall show in Timmins...

Next weekend my band plays a two night gig, so I am in Kirkland Lake (the flying is in Timmins and I will be sleeping anyhow)

The weekend after that I go to Toronto... could bring the plane if I had a place to fly it. But I dont think they would appreciate me flying inside the hotel

I am interested to see how the same plane flies now with the AXI... and if I get more vertical, and longer battery times, or the same, or worse.

Its going to be some time however before I get to test it, as the next few weeks are tied up and no flying will be done

Hi Andrew

You mean, it's still in one piece after 7 flights, that's good, even though it's not my fault , I keep getting hit by others and I'll be lucky if it lasts a week, then I just build another one.
You might find that the battery won't last as long with the Blue Foamie due to being an ounce heavier and requiring more torque in a hover but in normal flights, there's not that much difference.

Re: Blue Foamie

Hi

I just had a conversation with the School Principal and was told we can fly at the gym without interruption, including during the March break.
That's very good news, I better start the glue gun and fix that plane again plus somebody else's, which I won't name......right Darrell.

So that's where he gets all his money, hmmm....

Yeah, I should be flying next weekend, the foamies are all I have to practice new maneuvers as Windows XP service pack3 won't let me reinstall my simulator for some reason.... Friggin Windows! I'll have to fix that!

As far as getting booted off computers go, my Wife tells me I'm not paying enough attention to her when I'm on the computer, so I get off only to realize it's her way of tricking me into letting her use it! ??:
