I'm looking foreward to getting back to a simpler type of flying. If I can ever find the time to get the last few hours of work done to the Viking.

I can't wait to get back out to Fermin where I started my addiction 13 years ago or so.

Peace-out,
Bill

Dan,

Glad you have got the Needle up and running. Hopefully you will find it a very fast, slippery model. Don't be afraid to ballast more than you might think, it eats it up, but keep those turns smooth. And keep looking at those videos of me showing how not to do it!

Thanks,, video of you, I have watched tons of your video and it's all good.

Unfortunately when I wasn't looking my thumb got older and my brain is now 5 lengths behind the model.. not good.

OH, that was the first time on the clock with her. Fast guys were basically running 42's then 40 flat, Warren got into 39's last flight. I was running like 44's so 10% or so out, not bad for not flying but once or twice in 2 years. I was happy and same amount of pieces went home and that's a good thing. I don't have a handle on ballast yet, that will take a while.

New "personal bests" are the goals, Jeff. You will get another this weekend.

Dan, all you need is a few sessions and the rust, dust, and must will be gone and you will be threatening...and I like the Needle as well. WD
