I think your allowed to test fly before inspection.

Plus... I think it only has to be inspected if you want to fly it at AMA events. I'm not 100% sure tho.

I'll second that! I love to hear the engine and the antics of Snap & Pit Biotches.

As expected, everything fit perfectly, range was excellent and after a few flips, the motor jumped to life. Talk about ripping, the 342 was laughing at the 38x13.....absolutely painful to the ears. All that was left to do was fly it. so did Snap attempt to fly her?????? Come on, Snap being the showman he is couldn't let us down. What happened when he opened it her I won't say. I only think it fair to let Snap answer that one. Here is a little teaser vid I shot to keep things interesting (warning: Explicit Lyrics!!!!!)

Well after replaying the end of the video where it fades out you can clearly see that the wheels left the ground. The next question is if the landing was as smooth as the takeoff. Probably Was.

FYI my wife has been yelling at me to get off the computer but im currently glued to the refresh button waiting for a video link!!!
