Flight #10 - Protos 500 FBL
6 minutes in idle 1. Love this YGE-60 and it's governor.

Scooted it around in slow FF, practiced orientations on the sides. Space confined here and it would be dangerous to do much else with the Protos. First day the winds were below 13 mph so the mini vbar Protos REALLY shined in the calm air..it was amazing.

Flight #11/12

Two back to back Mini Titan flights - lazy circuits, figure 8s, a bunch of nose in high hovers transitioning to about 8 foot directly in front of me to a left hand turn (these usually scare me..nose in coming towards me)

I think i have tooo much expo on this guy..real mushy. Tail blows out in pitch pumps so I have some work to do.

This is the first time I've done sustained FF low and slow..usually I'm way too fast. First figure 8s.

Great day.

47 minutes of stick time / 314 minutes of sim time since 11/1/2010.
