I fly by myself sometimes, maybe more often than not. However, I like flying with the clubs I belong to (1 RC, 1 FF). Nice groups of people. I'd go out there once in a while even if I didn't have anything to fly. Not nearly as often, of course.

That instinct to pull up can be a powerful one. I don't get along very well with glo engines. Many years ago we were having a club pylon race. My engine was leaning out, so I rolled inverted. That worked, but then I got nervous, the plane started to go down, and I pulled up. OOOPS!!

A guy in our club was getting blown downwind, even though he had a reasonably fast glider. I tried to get him to put the nose down for about a minute, but when he got a bit low, I took the transmitter and brought it back easily with just a tad of down elevator.

BTW, if you cut your teeth on a Radian, you need a dentist! ;-)
