Another great day at Naranja - SDF. Looks like Thursday is getting busy at the field. I moved the C/G back about 1/8" on the Shock 3-D today and the knife edge improved considerably. It's getting to be one of the funnest planes I've ever flown next to the 4*40. I've finally dialed in my landings with this model and grease landings are now normal.

Great day at the field today. Only trouble was with a member that just wanted to fly maneuvers right over the pits. I personally consider this very dangerous as you can't really judge depth perception directly overhead and a loop that comes within 10 feet of my head upset me. I mentioned this to our Safety Officer who really didn't seem to mind so to the club VP. He agreed and let the offending pilot know this was not a welcome activity and if he wanted to fly maneuvers to fly them across the field. After the pilot landed I heard some grumbling with our Safety officer. They both left for the day shortly there after.

Just a couple of images from today.

Its been awhile since I've posted anything here as I had some severe medical issues over the last 2 years. Not much modeling done over that period of time. Now that I have my Lymphoma somewhat under control and I feel a ton better, I've been able to return to the Man Cave and under take several projects. My PoleCat was the last completed model and I was only able to fly it 3 times. I plan on getting it flight ready in the very near future. Lately I've been getting into FPV and taking aerial videos with a 68" Sky Walker. A really great platform for all kinds of radio, video and telemetry. Getting ready no to start an new project, a blast from the past. Stu Babcock's DQA 704. This is going to be a really fun project and should allow me to use it as a beater plane around the park.

Well, I now have five decent flights on the F-106 and I've really been tamming the bird down. 65% dual rates on both aileron and elevator. 20% expo on the ailerons and 15% expo on the elevator have made this plane go from a handful to a streaking beast that is a pure joy to fly. Yes it is fast but nothing an expericened pilot cannot handle. The low grade video has been submitted to Google videos and will be ready in about a day. Great day to fly and I burned two packs through her today.

Didn't know I had my own blog here on RCGroups, so I guess I should get busy and put in some information and share with others.
