Ha! Was that really the intent? Using the bushes as a parachute pillow landing spot? Good one, either way.

Hey Dram, I have also landed a few just like that. Of course mine were unintentional!

Not in the trees, but a one two bounce after trying to use ailerons on final approach... Again...

Saturday's Flight

Yay!! The rain stopped for a bit, so I was able to sneak in a flight. Way cool. Skies were pretty clear. Dirt dugout was a little muddy, so take off and landing was holding the wheels.

Another flight avoiding light poles.

You can see that it was a little breezy. I guess around 5-6 mph, so the wings on this thing were pretty fidgety...
