I was able to get out with my son the other day to do some long awaited flying. My work schedule has been on overload for the past few months. This really put a damper on building and flying. Both planes are my son Shawn's which are trimmed out for his skill level. I fly my planes with a forward CG. Having never flown this before, it was a bit of a handful and I really couldn't get the plane to fly level. Once in the air, I figured let's just play a little cat & mouse. Both planes were built by Jeff Dawson of San Antonio, TX. Shawn is flying the "Sonic Chicken" and I'm flying a plane known as the "Boom A Rang". Shawn is using a Cyclon and I'm using a Profi. Flying ball bearing takes a little more skill over the Norvel's due to the speeds. I tried to slow them down by using .015 steel lines. If it did slow the plane down, it really wasn't recognized. Shawn was using a Cox 5x3 trimmed down on 10% . I got one cut on him which is not visible in the vid. All in fun and I really enjoy flying 1/2A. Ken
