WOW! The LPRCFlyers rang in the 2019 New Year with a fantastic fly-in. Although the runway was slightly wet, the weather was pretty warm. We had many many great flights. We welcomed Charles Stanley as a guest flyer for the day. Amazingly, no planes were harmed (significantly) in making this video. Click the PLAY button on the Video Below and Enjoy!
Wow, when you have a moment, please be sure to take time to watch this video from Peter Sripol. You may remember him from the older Flite Test videos wherein he created many unique, and sometimes very large, foam-board RC planes. Well, now he has totally designed and scratch built his very own full scale foam bi-plane. In this video, he is flying it. Simply amazing!
Watch this quick funny short video as Jack and Charles Present: Opterra Flying – Good VS Bad. Charles must be a “plane down to Earth” type of guy!
The Opterra is one of the best planes Charles has ever flown. Here’s some footage he took late today. In actuality, he waited till almost too dark to take the video. He’s tried to brighten it up the best he could. Enjoy!
The E-flite Opterra is a wonderful flyer if properly balanced. In this video I show the CG settings that I use with mine and offer up a couple of detailed FPV camera and battery configuration settings. If you find this information useful, please be sure to thumbs up it!
In addition to our new carport, we recently had some bushhoggin’ and road leveling work done. These aerial views help you better appreciate the work, especially the bushhoggin which shows up better from the air. This place is looking better day by day!

Watch this in 1080P hi-def!
Charles modified the rudder of his Hobbyking Skipper RC plane so that it would be both good in the water and great on land. This is the first time he has ever flown it off of water. Compared to our normal flying area, this lake is a bit smaller. This is some of the toughest flying he’s done. It takes quite a bit for the plane to come up off of the water and then it wants to go straight up…then you have to power down the motor a lot and keep it out of the trees (and this planes flies pretty fast!). Still a lot of fun though.
