Hi all, Went out to my usual flying field todayand there was a guy flying a rev, I've never seen anyone in this area flying one. So I struck up a conversation and he let me try his 1.5. OMG what a difference from my little backtracker!!!
I was totally blown away, I could do spins, forward, backward flight, I have got to get me one of these (Just wish I had the $$$$) O well save,save,save

Well if you had any luck flying the Backtracker then you can see how easy it is to fly a 1.5.

As john said, hook line and sinker now.

Hi mbro-

It certainly is a huge difference. Like JB said, the difference between the 1.5 and the B is huge. Then, the next step, jumping from the B to the B Pro is that much sweeter, yet!

Happy flying.

Hi Steve and Sherri
Now if this trade comes through. What will this make your collection come to? Also you have to move back closer to the beach. Missed you guys on the days when it was nice enough to get to the beach to fly this winter. See you guys in November if everything works ouit this fall.
