    Flying in the fog

    Video forthcoming.

    Very scary when you turn around thinking you are in one place but are half a mile off and unsure which way is back....

    I'll definitely be putting an OSD on the EZ very soon!

    Had the same feeling last time flying in the desert, no osd, no landmarks, no goggles. Only a 2"lcd screen on the recorder. Looks like a quick order to RMRC for you...

    Scott, about how fast does your EZ cruise?

    The EZ cruises about 30-35mph, stall speed of the Zephyr LOL

    I flew the Zephyr today too and stalled it - too used to flying the EZ but luckily I recovered...

    I'll be ordering the Tiny OSD next payday, kind of tapped out this week.

    Know what you mean, need to watch the funds for the drive down south. If your ez is in about that range, should be able to keep up with the little plane. Was hoping to take it out for a test flight this afternoon but the van is getting packed up for tonight.

    I've been able to get the trainer 40 up around 45 to 80 Mph but realizing how limited the nitro flying has become. Getting really tempted to get another wing constructed when i get back but will need to look around for a bigger motor and speed control.
