As the tradition goes, about the time all the children head back to school the weather gets nice in northern California ..... and we've been taking advantage of it!
I got another flight in on the Hawker Hunter, but gear issues prevented any more field excursions with it, so I turned my focus to my F4D Skyray which I have recently put a new ESC and Don's Wicked motor in. As usual Jon was there for me to capture pics, and I think he managed to get a few good ones. Thanks Jon! Adam managed to maiden his Vision, which despite my terrible handlaunch went off with out barely a hitch.
If you've never used Googles Sketchup application, you're missing out! I've yet to use such a powerful FREE 3d application. A whole new breed of scratchbuilders have emerged ..... they call themselves 'phlatboyz'. Crafting foam models from a 'kit' based sub $1000 CNC machine for foam sure sounds like fun to me!
