Flew the Bee again yesterday. It flies great inverted. It was fun for an hour or so but the gusty conditions and changing direction made it seem more like work so I landed. I'd have flown alot more if there was combat.

Forrest showed up with his new Bee but left with a dead transmitter battery.

I'm having problems with the Expresso. I don't seem to be getting radio signal to the servos. I'll try another receiver tonight.

Maidened the Bee at dusk tonight. It needed loads of downtrim to get flying but after a few minutes I took it all out and it flew fine. Seems to wobble a bit until it picks up speed. The LEDs are a blast. I didn't want to spoil its looks by attaching the winglets with strapping tape so I used clear electrical tape. It blew on the second landing.

The JW progresses nicely. I hope to maiden it and the Expresso this weekend.

Flew up Grant Creek in variable winds. The F-80 likes the 12oz I glued in it. Unfortunately I forgot the elevator servo was stripped. I guess it needs surgery. The Weasel and XR flew great. Had some interesting Weasel/Bee/M60 combat with Jerry and Ronnie.

I finally got all the lights in my Bee. What a royal PITA. I had to spackle it smooth.
