Hobbyshop calls today says we have your new plane been here over a month. But I have picked up parts 2 times this month. They asked if I asked for the plane and I said no. So I went and picked it up.
took a few pictures and tryed a little back yard flying. It flew right out my hand no dive for the ground. Once up a little seemed like it was going to fly forever. It was a lttle windy but it did good. Talk about easy I did no tricks just flying and not real fast just around the field getting much higher than my normal flight. I bind it with my Dx5 radio so I can get it up without getting to far for the radio.

Well today I was flying the night vapor it was so nice out I went in and got it again for a night flite. After only a little while it hit the road hard. But seemed ok but it was still lighting up but motor would not work. Pulled battery back out and put back in, motor still would not run. I did have two working night vapors. One with tons of repairs but the motor works good. Plus a few years ok I replace one motor and it was the prop. So I still have that motor two. May take the old one out tonight and fly it later. It has not been out for a few months.

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.
3rd flight out front night vapor (8 min 32 sec)

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.
