The wind today was up to 10 mph at 90 degrees to the runway.

Inspiring flight John.

When the sun shines through the structure for a second or so during some of the passes it's...thrilling I guess is the word.

I have a Ho XII short kit I bought from cpdude and I'm going to push a couple projects out of line to concentrate on the Horton.
