Flight report: With two leccys in the back of the Lincoln.....the pimpmobile was pointed in the direction of the soccer field for nine batteries worth of flying. (About 30 min) The AE 260 was put up first and she performed beautifully with each 4 min pack. The 3DHS 41 Edge was next and she too slipped down from a 8' hover to within inches of the goose poop covered field. There were at least three cars stopped on the road behind me and I heard laughs of glee from children and adults alike....thing is.......every time the battery needed changing.....they must have thought I was packing up and would leave! It's hard to "fish for" spectators when the bait keeps falling off the hook! Anyway.......last pack of the night........I clear the soccer net by a few feet as I set up for landing and on final approach.....I get distracted by these damn golfers that pulled up earlier and started to hit their balls awfully close to me.......I looked back to watch her pile into the ground at about a 45 degree angle....upon closer inspection......I pushed in the bottom of the cowl, which was easily pulled out again.....and I bent the landing wires as well as throwing a tire. She's not as pretty as she once was, but she's a leccy......what can you expect? They will fly another day though....so that's something....

Good luck Wayne in getting her running!

I am shooting for 20+ minute flights.

I am sure you were giving them a show.

Engine has to run, it is an OS.

I need to break out a new jug of fuel. Don't need to be running 25% in the 46.

The Saito 100 is here. I am going to use a different mount so I have to get it all setup on the new firewall.

O DOG you can'r go wrong going there except stay away from snowy's prime rib unless you want to gain 10 lbs.
Snowy's been telling me the salmon fishing is starting to gear up.
Well I went flying again tonight with the little MX. This time I took my video sunglasses. Wouldn't you know it. Just when I figure out how to use them the lipo batt starts taking a dump. I did get 1 video of her and I'm trying toupload load it now.
Boy it takes along time to up load on you tube.
Hopefully video to come. My 1st you tube video.
I've always had other people up load them.

Now Salmon is my weak point!!!! Let me be clear, I dont catch, clean, scale, de-bone or any of that stuff..... I am limited to Cooking it, Eatting it, then airing out the house of it....My Limit!

I am sad I sold my MX, but it made a club member very happy. Upgrading the motor on my 3DHS 33 inch extra to one of the 2S winds I did on a pink wonder motor....
