I snuck away for about 20 min to fly and I'm glad I did. Today was the best air I've been able to fly in for about 3 weeks. It seemed there was always 3:00 air somewhere. The challenge was finding it, and I failed much more often than I succeeded. The problem was that everywhere but that one tiny pocket would be sinking like mad.

I tried a new field near my apartment that I've been eyeballing for a while. Turns out it's very small, but useable. Once you're below about 50' you're done because it's completely surrounded by trees and there just isn't room to maneuver and search for lift. After treeing my Mystic on Sat, however, I'm not keen on flying in tight spaces like that anymore Speaking of which, the tree trimmers were willing to get it, but it'd cost me about 50 bucks. At that price I'd rather just shoot it down with a potato gun and salvage the servos and receiver.
