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

Well, we had another great weekend of flying, but any weekend flying is great right? Jamie bought his Explorer out for a ride and it went home in great condition, Jose took a few shots of my new Zulu, that's the only bad thing about taking the pictures is none of your own planes get pictures taken. The weather was pretty good, a little cloudy but still good, very smooth lift, very little turbulence.

Have Fun!

Hello everyone,

We had a great day flying and took almost 300 pictures, and still had time to fly. My new Zulu flew pretty good, it needed some adjusting and made it home safely. Tom and Paul had a great time racing each other with their Bats having more fun than should be allowed. The conditions were really good for sloping in general, and everyone had loads of fun! I l really love flying at this hill and wouldn't trade it for anything. Until next week,

Hello Everyone,

I was only able to fly for a couple of hours last Saturday, and the pictures I took were not that great. I am just starting out with photography and I'm reading as much materials as I can cram in to learn as fast as possible. The flying conditions were fair, but the wind was at a not ideal angle from the SE, so the flying suffers a little from that, but we still have fun! I included a couple of pics of my new plane that will fly this Saturday wind & weather willing. I bought a Zulu from the East HK Warehouse, and I only have to balance it to fly, so we will see this Saturday! I always get excited when I fly a new plane for the maiden flight, but the more it costs, the more nervous I get I also like to shoot birds as you can see, I like to study them to see how I can improve my flying. Enjoy,
