"You log file does not seem to show the flight. Are you sure you got the right log. These X8 airframes should not be flown too fast. Lloyd"

"Thanks for the reply. Yes i know opentx will resolve my problem, but to do that i would have to update my turnigy 9x firmware(i have the v2 firmware). And i can only do that by buying extra hardware which i don't think it is worth it. Might as…"

"Any chance of sharing the Oculus rift code? That video doesn't seem to show what should normally be seen on a rift display. Are you just doing head tracking or is the video display correct in the rift? Thanks"

Lloyd Breckenridge commented on Tommy Larsen's blog post Skywalker X8 hand injury
"You can't compare a Stryker to an X8. For a start the winglets prohibit any type of wing launch method. The there is the weight. Forget all attempts at hand launching an X8 they are doomed to failure or injury."

Lloyd Breckenridge commented on Tommy Larsen's blog post Skywalker X8 hand injury
"This is the cheapest and safest way to launch an X8 All up about $30 worth of materials. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfVhfR4Cj_Y I have never even considered hand launching mine."
