Flew with Jerry today in winter conditions. Had to quit after an hour because my hand was numb.

The cf rods in the tail of the Expresso are broken. Hopefully CA will do the trick as they were glued in and can't be replaced easily.

The LEG Jart progresses.

Wow what a day. My favorite kind with big puffy clouds, a cobalt blue sky and smooth and steady winds in the 20s straight out of the west. I flew everything but mostly flew the hell out of the Expresso.

Flew the Renny at the Equestrian Park.

On the last flight I got too low too far away and didn't have enough battery left to climb out. It nosed in hard from 10-15 feet up. On the walk to the pieces I was thinking about what plane to replace it with and had just about decided on a Cularis when I got to the wreck. What do you know, there wasn't a scratch on it. I guess it's tougher than it looks.

My Labor Day weekend trip to Eagle was pretty much a bust as far as flying went. The wind at Eagle was gently blowing up the back of the slope so no lift at all. The road was ok though.

I spent an afternoon on top of Kiona Butte. The front side looks like the moon since the fire. Winds were light and variable. I had the best luck with my Weasel, specking it out while it was blowing and drifting it down while it was slack. It was fun but I'm glad I didn't drive all the way there just to fly. I'm bummed I paid to join AMA just so I could fly Eagle.

Guess I'll have to go back before the membership runs out.
