Flite Test has another sponsor! In this episode Josh and Josh compete with the HobbyZone Champ. This amazing little plane is an easy flyer. Watch as Josh and Josh challenge each other to do a touch and go off the trampoline in the backyard. Watch to see how we even the odds between the noob and the veteran.

I tried a Flyzone Playmate and didn't have good results (two different planes even)
The Champ looks like fun.
I'd love to have something I can fly in the backyard while babysitting the grill or the smoker.

Great Video! I'm really excited to have 2 episodes a week! I have a UM mustang and Also a UM Sukhoi. Touch and goes are one of my favorite things to do with them.

LOL!!! Congrats eyeinthesky! Thanks for playing for me, Josh Scott! I do really appreciate the recognition and opportunity.

And, the Champ is one of the most fun airplanes I have flown, even as simple as it is. One of my students has one and we bounce it off the walls, ceiling, floor and basketball nets in the gym. Ridiculously tough little plane!

Congratulations Eyeinthesky! And it seems it still was way to easy for J. Bixler - next time - let's hang him upside down by his legs ;P ;)

Ok, here's an idea for the next challenge. Before Josh B. can take off, or re-launch after a crash, make him answer some movie trivia questions correctly (see Avatar Gunship Ep.). It seems that maybe with this handicap, he would never even leave the ground. :p

Well, actually on Mode 2 your right hand does everything, just leave the throttle set, and bank'n'yank your way! Though I never saw Josh trying to make a touch and go... It was still fun!
