Hello all,

We have been having some light weekends, so the flying has been light as well. I didn't take that many shots, and my cameras settings were off, so I lost some of the pictures. I know not to do that but sometimes I forget. But here's a few pics I could save

Hello all,

Here is last weeks photos. It was a good day even after the strange wind changes and moving from one side of the hill to another. Enjoy

Sorry, I wasn't feeling good, so my blog is a little late. I also didn't make it to the hill this last week so there won't be an entry next week.

Well it was another great weekend for flying, a nice stiff wind out of the east, and made for some awesome flying. Had a lot of fun! Check out the pictures, even the birds were out sloping. ...Continue Reading

Hello all,

This was a really good day for flying, as you can see by the amount of pictures of people launching their planes. We had a lot of fun and the wind kinda countered the heat (a little).

Enjoy,...Continue Reading

Hello all,

We got rained out for the most part, but a few people got some flying in before the grey skies took over. John was flying his newly built plane (Sorry John, couldn't remember the name of it) which I took pictures of when he first built and flew his maiden flight with her, but I lost all the pictures as I didn't have the camera set properly and didn't realize it until after I got home and checked the pictures. I learned a good lesson from that. Always check your camera settings even during and before shooting and I started using the histogram on previews, it helps to see the exposure when the LCD screen is hard to see outdoors. I think this week will be much better, but a little hotter than last week.

Have fun, see ya Saturday! ...Continue Reading

Hello again,

We had a slow flying day again, I guess the summer dog days are here at last. We will get some really hot days to come in the next few months. Paul will be breaking out the winch soon when the winds do come out to play. No flying this weekend as it was a rain out, but tomorrow is Memorial day and hopefully we can get some flying in.

Have Fun! Rockitglider ...Continue Reading

Hello again,

Well the flying wasn't that great this weekend, in fact, even the birds weren't flying. But we managed to get a few flights in, and every once in a while a thermal came through and we were able to get a longer flight. I had some fun with my electric glider. Hopefully this week will be better.

Hello All,

Another weekend of flying on our favorite hill in Florida, or our only hill in Florida It was pretty good, sometimes the air/wind did some weird things causing some turbulence mark A. had a couple of new planes to test for the trip to the NW this year, and they did good, I think there was a midair but not sure about any damage, hope not. Jose had a new plane as well, great colors Jose! I think I need a new plane.

Have Fun!, Kit ...Continue Reading

Hello Everyone,

It was another good flying day, although a little turbulent at times. Overall just a fun flying day. The Hawk was back, since Mike moved they've been gone. I couldn't get any good pics of it though, I did get a couple of Osprey's but they fly high and are hard to get a good shot of. Tom had a new plane that was easy to photograph It flew great and went home with no issues. I think it was a Fox scale plane. Have fun. And BTW Buck got his G-Lady back in the air after last weeks spectacular midair with Paul.

Hello All,

We had a great time flying, the wind was great had to add a lot of down elevator to keep up the speed, that's a good thing. There was a crash though, pretty bad but I got very lucky and got it on camera!

Check it out
