Has anyone ever stopped to consider the effect of rain on two days of a long weekend? It really, really SUCKS! It sucks even more if you a R/C pilot. Needless to say, I'm grounded again. Not that I'm complaining, Mother Nature. Don't get me wrong. I can use the time to improve my indoor flying skills with my MCQX.

so tonight was the 2nd indoor session of the year. Most of the guys fly 3D foamies, as do I, but it gets a little crowded in there pretty fast. Especially when I'm trying to maiden my scratch builds. Out gym is only a 1.5 sized high school gym. Not like those huge indoor gyms you see in the US, which I wish we had here.

Indoor is fun sure, but I am being reminded of how I dont fly well indoors. Needless to say I fly a lot better outdoors. I think i'll just focus on building slow type flyers for this winter and focus of precision hovering with helis.

Heh. Yeah. It didn't rain here but it was windy as all get out my 2 days off. We maiden'ed my Super Cub for a short while but the wind was way above my skill level so my son and I retreated indoors to play on the sim and fly our Scout and MCX2.

So far this weekend isn't shaping up much better.

Yeah, yeah. Right now I'm enjoying things that don't crash. That means my heli and my quad. I'm just waiting on my altimeter to show up. I really want to know how high I take this quad to. Guesstimating is no fun, I need a frame of reference.
It is almost like driving a car without a speedometer.
