I started one morning with the intent of a complete build of my Aerobeez 26% Slick 540 ARF and maiden the next day! Keep in mind this ARF includes all the hardware and a plumbed ready fuel tank!

Everything was super secure and the main box was very thick. I laid out my basic build tools a cup of coffee and my build begins. So super excited to get the... more

Got to the field early morning around 8:30.  Couldn’t sleep much the night before as I was so super excited about the maiden flight.  I’m sure all you pilots know the feeling!  The day was overcast and chilly as I assembled the Slick540 with main wings.  Let’s back track a bit.  The morning starts off with me forgetting something at my workshop.  As I pulled into the field, I had to turn around and go home to pick up an important part I forgot.  Now back to the ready to control... more

It was a hot summer day in early august when we decided to take our new 65″ Yak 54 20cc profile to the field for video shooting.

It was about 101 degrees at 10am but the sky was clear so it was perfect for video shooting.
