I did an un planned drive by where you guys are flying. 202 was shut down and force to Exit at Elliot. I saw you guys flying but didn't stop. I was wondering do you guys have to worry about traffic going down that street you are flying from?

We get a few cars once in a while, and try to forewarn each other.

Sat was good, Phil and Chris were out flying and nobody killed anything Chris was even flying a Nano CPX. Byper stayed at home Sun, too many new toys I guess. MXS ICE Lite 100 still going over 200 deg so changes are needed before that will come back out again. 58" Edge is outstanding now with 7245's, no more aileron trim issues.

Byper is interesting and may take some getting used to. The elevator has great authority for walls and waterfalls but if you try a tumble the plane mostly rolls so I think aileron has ever more authority Harrier is a bit diferent too as the plane is very sensative to rudder and/or aileron. I think my 2200 packs are just a tad too small to get cg where they really recommend, and I'm only getting 4 min flights. I used to get 5 min on my 51 with that combo but I think I pushed the packs to lower voltage back then and may not have been on the throttle so much... packs could also be getting a bit old I guess.

Just a short note to my friends. We had to put our oldest golden retriever down today -- she would have been 16 in December. Not sure how much we ever talked about dogs over the years, but I think you all know how much we've been a dog family. She was a really good one. Sorry to lose her.

Sorry to hear that Ben. Kevin and I were just talking about our dogs on Saturday. Mine is almost 15 and having issues and Kevin's dog is still having trouble with a lump above her eye.

They become part of the family after so many years.

Sorry to hear about your golden Ben. My older Italian Greyhound was born in 96 I think. Just was talking to the Vet on the way home from work tonight about a possible ultrasound. She's been to the Vet at least eight times over the last 6 weeks or so.
