I've been waiting for a day like today ever since I got the gyros. It was very windy and gusty with various thermals all over the place. The plane flew like a champ. You could really see those gyros working hard to keep the plane straight. Very pleased with the gyros.

This plane has been getting about 30-40 minutes in the air and about 10-20 landings each week. I've never flown a single plane this often. It's extremely low maintenance (almost none), so you really get a lot of enjoyment from it. A coworker of mine is getting most of the flight time on the buddy box. He had his first takeoff 2 weeks ago and I hardly ever have to recover the plane from him anymore. I just get to spend a few seconds each week landing the plane... except today it was all me flying for 30 minutes practicing spot landings. I'm getting pretty good
