Did some taxi down the street today learning to get up speed for flight. Keeping wings level in a few feet of flight than landing and turning around doing the same thing on the way back. I well fly in a few days when my spare parts come in. Ordering prop and spinner motor and gear box spair landing gear. So I have them and no need to find them. Checking out some real t 28 there some that were turned in to 5 seat aircraft.

One great flight out back no wind during flight and one out front under the street lights. 2nd flight was short wind was pushing around the night vapor. First and last flight were good ones the last flight doing many take offs and landings. Still early may get more flying in before the nights over. But there are storms going on about 45 miles away. If they head this way no more flying for me. Ben good to get out and get any flying done, been windy this and last month.

This time I must cut back yard and runway for my planes with small 02 tank in hand to help with breath. I still fly or work on my runway when my son working a lot. It takes me a while to get the job done. I have never let my need or 02 stop me flying. You see my tank at indoor flying and keep it out back for when I must go out in field to find plane. But on days when working I am on the tank can work a little longer before i must set down. I fly out front without the tank its easy walking on the street or side walk. The deep grass out back not that easy to walk in get tired fast when walking in it. I work more on runway during next few days should be ready by thursday getting new planes in a few days can not wait.

Flying out front with all that road for runway got to love these little planes. Flys so slow you can go between homes and trees and land and take off here there and down the road. Not very many light wind days these days. So when you got one time to go flying. My sport cub s still like new same motor and still flying. I don,t fly it wild do roll that with one of my champs. Going to get new planes this week hope to still find a small t28 plane. Also picking up a j3 cub and a umx radain to fly around the house in light wind days. More pictures of my champ and sport cub out front.

Took my duet and night vapor out front today was a little windy even with for cast calling for 3 mph. Had much stronger wind coming up while flying. Did get to fly duet for a while wind coming up about 5 min in flight. Got 3 flights in had to land on 3rd flight wind got to strong. Put the night vapor up without flying. Using one of my champ battery's in the duet now, charging with my spitefires charger. Car coming by while flying had to pull over 2 times and let it go by. Nice and warm outside today. Winds showing well be down for a few days may try out back later today. Just before it gets dark get ina few flights with a few planes.

Runways clear still needs a little fill and pat down but ok for bigger planes new pictures showing views where and how big deck is and how far runway is. A little windy today almost to windy for a fire. But is a little cold out and the fire feels good. But would be warmer if I was not wearing shorts. Don,t know how many times seen guy at store in shorts cold out and I made fun of. All were out back on deck last night watching me fly night vapor. Which I flew all around field almost to road even.

No wind and warm no bugs tonight and a easy flight after charge up. Step out the front door to the street and go flying. No loops no super fast plane just nice easy flying. The night vapor is just perfect for this. Like getting out 2 nights been many days of wind between flight these days where in years before almost every night I would fly. Not my 3 am flight but around 10 pm was just out seemed right for a flight.

Kathryn and I driving her rc toy truck out front. Learning to control coming and going a going throw a turn. She did well even with it going around her most time. She getting good with plane simulator and now rc truck ready for planes this summer. Going to start her out on my duet than a champ. Already got them and I fly them now the duet is not new but still flying. I like the way it helps you fly unless you have winds coming and going acts like no power somtimes unless you get turned into wind than it adjust the power.

Repaired and tested from where its battery burn up in charger. I could not get a new battery to plug in any more or see why it had a fire when plugged into charger. Turns out the plug from battery had stayed in plane plug. And it was bear wires that had hit the charger. He got plug out with needle and new battery plane works fine. Must now use one of many 1 s battery chargers I got around. But the battery now powers and runs the plane. I was about to go get a new duet today and use this one for parts. The spinners are off but other than that plane looks and flys great after many bad landings or wall hits in the gym. The control works for flying the plane just not charging anymore.

Got a log burning and the night vapor flying. No wind but what the fire seems to be making. Plane took a few dives when it got near the fire but made a nice landing under the fir pit looks like its flying right into the fire. The night vapor be flow with wheels off have not repaired them from bad landing on the street yet. A few bugs were mssing with my hands and face a few times. Also the battery's on the radio had to be changed I had put away on.

Today was doing landings in driveway. In the back of pick up front yard sidewalk to had to put planes up after a while kids were coming out to play and running by the planes. A car came by while flying the guy next door came by and talked about Smyrna hobby shop and he had some trucks and how his dogs don't like them. He asked if this was my toys, he has got boats motorcycles yo name it he's got it. The harness in the duet has got tobe replaced. The first battery for the champ was no good anymore after that 9 mmin flight last time. Charged up but would not hold a load. Motor would cut in and out at full throttle new battery and we were flying after a start charge up on it.

Was going to start the the with the duet but it would light up the battery today as I plug it into the charger it got red hot and almost went to making fire. New battery's did not what to connect to plane so switch to champ Trim was off alot had to hold down on stick all the time. Between that and hight wind ended up down the block at very end. But I had been up about 9 mins which is a little to long. But did some loops and up and downs and had fun did the trimm after the flight. Should be better next flight and retriming. Need to get out more and fly more gotten weak inside on that computer. Miss my mini vapor always walked it time to walk my night vapor. Sidewalk make good runway for slow plane plus easy to get that plane out of the way.

Runway took weed eater did my 3 feet by 12 foot dirt strip. grass cut down 5 feet by 50 feet. Now for weeding and level pack in holes and level dirt. Not near done for the small planes. I sure my gamma could use now but its the only one now. Also need to put a mix to kill any grass that may want to grow there. The yard is now so clear I think the smaller planes in and out of the deck sometimes it is 8 feet and full as long as the house.

Spring has come in a windy start. Just starting runway this week. Had back yard picked up and cleared out so I can get to my deck this year. Its 24 feet by 10 feet the house came with 8 x 10 deck had them make it a little bigger while working on house. Swings not here anymore no kids sand box or all the other toys in the way. Well start new dirt runway just past back yard so I can take off and land my planes on it and fly out to the flying field. It takes a good while this year going for 3 foot by 24 foot runway on low grass of 5 by 50 feet. Which it has got that big in the past some times started out 3 feet by 12 feet and just got bigger. A lot of cutting trimming and getting dirt level and all the roots out and no holes for the wheels to land in.
