    Some how The RED1 ended up in my hanger again. So I figured Iíd do some off roading at the local Mud pit before its off to SNF. This is a 800arce Ranch that everything from full blown tractor tire race trucks to full tracks spend every minute trying to tear up the terrain and there vehicles.There not a spot more than 200í thats flat level or not rutted up. (Scouter can contest to that) Acme gen 3 really performs well!!!
    Last week I saw the owner running around on his ATV so landed to talk to him. Iíve always been hesitant to hang around during one of there event because of the sheriff and security is all over the place. He said not to worry they know Iím allowed to be there and he would like me to get some pics and video for him so next event they have I should have some cool Video.

    Just flew the gen 3ís on a carbon cub. Wow. Iím impressed. The runway is too wet so I landed and took off in the rough stuff next to it. I think I need to fly them more.

    Strap them on to the red and white cub in the hanger fly them as often as you like. Tell JC to order a new set for his EX3 build!

    Whether you're a pro like "Springloaded" or a neophyte, the Acme "Black Ops" (Gen3) struts simplify landing a Carbon Cub. Put another way, for any given skill level the Acmes enable the pilot to take on more challenging situations. Once the Acmes and the like become widely adopted we'll see fewer loss of control on landing incidents that give rise to the insurance carrier scrutiny "Seastar" related in his "Poor Rating" post.

    I only got a couple landings before he took the cub back. He must have missed it if he wanted to be flying today. He said the EX-3ís are shipping in 2019.

    The 3x3 gear really lifts it up some.

    You and Glenn better hush your mouth with all this EX 3 trash talking, or I may have to do something about it with that Mark guy who hangs around and takes our money And that Chuck guy from Jupiter is no help with that red Jezebel he keeps popping up with. I dont sleep well as it is. And now Dan has an opening this summer to build.....
    Does Judy like a little silver with the yellow? And JB said she liked it except she needs a blanket
