Crazy fun day at the field Yesterday.....lots of pilots, warbids, sport planes, 3d big birds, Micro bipes, quads, video drones......horse tradin'

Here is the video of the brand new (yet to be released) HobbyKing 1600mm/63inch C-130 Hercules Box Car.  The winds were gusting erratic at times...so this small bird gets tossed around.  It needs 10channels for the flaps and rear door control......but I am flying via DX6 so - I have all the flaps (standard outer / Inboard Fowler) operating from single toggle and no rear door ramp operations.

HobbyKing is promoting this to fly via 4s 2200mAh LiPo.....I think this is way too light and severely limits flight duration.  I am flying via 4s 30c 2600mAh LiPo that easily fits in the stock battery tray position....a little heavier and better flight duration.

The nose gear servo might be stripped or lost a grub screw in the flat spot of the control arm.....I lost left turn control on the third flight, only right turns possible - no problem as it would hold straight after lining up for take off and touch-n-go's.

Might deploy a stabilizer to help prevent some wing rock and tail droop when trying to fly super slow - "Sometimes" stabilizer helps to fly slower than designed airspeed.  However, when it stalls at super slow speed it's often too far in that scenario to recover

Here is the second flight trying to tighten up with my Russian Escort Jet:
