The Volantex ASW 28 is well and truely dialed for LOS soaring now. Had a good but short sesh fishing for thermals and was pretty impressed with the hang time even though there was next to no thermals. Got to share the airspace with a fellow RC soarer’ Multiplex Heron. Beautiful bird. Good times. ———————————————————————— #volantex #asw28 #frsky #multiplex #heron #freeasabird #thermaling #rcglider #rcgliding #soaring #gliding

Recieved my @8bitdo SN30 Bluetooth controller today. Very slick. Very clean. Very nice in the hand. Perfect for Retropie SNES, NES and Megadrive action (although after using the SN30 I’ll def be grabbing a 8bitdo M30 Megadrive controller). I advise doing a firmware update before pairing it to your device. Very nice indeed 🤤——————————————————————— #retrogame #retrogamer #retrogaming #arcade #arcadegaming #gamecollector #taito #konami #atari #namco #midway #neogeo #snk #retroconsolegamer #retroconsolegaming #retroconsoleemulation #capcom #nintendo #nes #snes #gameboy #gameboyadvance #sega #mastersystem #megadrive #genesis #emulator #retropie #retrostone #8bitdo

So we got a LEGO thing goin on in our house at the moment. Impossible not to to get in on it and let the inner boy go nuts. Who doesn’t like a dragon!!!! ———————————————————————— #lego #lovelego #legodads

Now it’s trimmed and balanced the Volantex ASW 28 launches clean and feels stable to maneuver in for a landing. The addition of a Aeronaut 11x7” has added atleast 20% power on take off ———————————————————————— #volantex #asw28 #frsky #freeasabird #thermaling #rcglider #rcgliding #soaring #gliding

Put the ASW up for 10 mins. Much nicer with more control over the CG. Launched great. Landed pretty great.
Really have to get used to the rudder just not having much affect sometimes. It’s such a long sleek fuse that I think there’s just not enough rudder surface. If I dip a wing then rudder it’s fine but flat turns need some work feathering aileron in and out.
And the rudder mixed in to the aileron helps a lot for just cruisin round.
Also took the spinner and prop off the Radian. An 11x7” Aeronaut.
Has about 20% more power now and just seems to climb smoother and cleaner.
The spinner is a tiny bit too big for the fuse but it’s really only an aesthetic issue at this point and once it’s up it’s no issue at all

Overall it flew pretty great and I think it’s ready for a Vector and head tracking setup. ———————————————————————— #volantex #asw28 #frsky #freeasabird #thermaling #rcglider #rcgliding #soaring #gliding

Just thought I’d share an app that I’ve started using to keep record of my high scores.
It’s called ‘Arcade Sidekick’. It’s a pretty new app but is pretty clean a slick and does the job. There’s leaderboards to compare your score if you’re in to that and you can compare with friends. It AUD$2.99 for me but a great way to keep track of personal scores and goals. ——————————————————————— #retrogame #retrogamer #retrogaming #arcade #arcadegaming #gamecollector #taito #konami #atari #namco #midway #neogeo #snk #retroconsolegamer #retroconsolegaming #retroconsoleemulation #capcom #nintendo #nes #snes #gameboy #gameboyadvance #sega #mastersystem #megadrive #genesis #emulator #retropie #retrostone

DK - 31,100
Finally broke 30k. Been about 9 months in the making. Watched a few ‘how-to’ vidz on YouTube and I think some sort of penny has dropped for me 🤔

Just gotta work on the rage 👿 😉

Onwards and upwards. ——————————————————————— #retrogame #retrogamer #retrogaming #arcade #arcadegaming #gamecollector #taito #konami #atari #namco #midway #neogeo #snk #retroconsolegamer #retroconsolegaming #retroconsoleemulation #capcom #nintendo #nes #snes #gameboy #gameboyadvance #sega #mastersystem #megadrive #genesis #emulator #retropie #retrostone

So I’m at my in-laws on Mothers Day and my mother in law mentions an old handheld ‘gameboy thing’ and was uninterested in it? I acted like “yeah sure” but inside I was like “hell yeah lady”. She dug it out of a cupboard and said it wasn’t working. Initially she was correct. It would boot but hang. I cleaned the carts and boom!!! Uber retro juicy goodness. It’s the first legit Game Boy I’ve seen, held and obviously owned. Running up ‘Top Ranking Tennis’ I see the saves from my wife and her brother from around 30 years ago. Just adds to the nostalgia. My 7 year old is gagging to give it a run once I got it up and running. From one generation to the next. My wife woulda been about her age when she first played this very handheld. Life is good 🤙——————————————————————— #retrogame #retrogamer #retrogaming #arcade #arcadegaming #gamecollector #taito #konami #atari #namco #midway #neogeo #snk #retroconsolegamer #retroconsolegaming #retroconsoleemulation #capcom #nintendo #nes #snes #gameboy #gameboyadvance #sega #mastersystem #megadrive #genesis #emulator #retropie #retrostone

Just wanted to share this high score of 377,870 my wife set on ‘Wonder Boy’ at the @1up_arcade_australia in Brisbane. She’s always been a keen but i pushed her to contribute towards the monthly Arcade Wars vs Galloping Ghost Arcade. Now she’s up on the regular 1Up Arcade top 3 leader board and her score contributes to the monthly Arcade Wars comp.
She’s def a keeper 😝 ——————————————————————— #retrogame #retrogamer #retrogaming #arcade #arcadegaming #gamecollector #taito #konami #atari #namco #midway #neogeo #snk #retroconsolegamer #retroconsolegaming #retroconsoleemulation #capcom #nintendo #nes #snes #gameboyadvance #sega #mastersystem #megadrive #genesis #emulator #retropie #retrostone
