Great flying today. Got 5 flights in on my T-28. The day started out as a Parkzone-Fest - 2 T-28s and a ME-109.

Lots of people showed up throughout the morning. The first row of parking was full.

Great to get out flying!

My wife and I were there in the morning on the 7th.

Winds were higher than predicted.
I flew my Adrenaline Rush and FunJet.

One of Don's old ducted fans was there and it had the most flights.

I had planned on going Saturday as it was my B-day so thought I would get some flying in but the family had surprise lunch plans for me so never made it.

I had the day off so I went up to Warner Road at lunch time. My goal was to practice landings. There were 2 other guys there. Wind was out of the North which helped a lot. It was gusty, more so than at the house, but my T-28 handled the wind with great aplomb. I was near the end of my second battery when a hard landing caused the wire in the nose wheel to let go. Parma Hobbies will have the replacement in on Friday.

I came across some videos last night on the AMA sight that were a series of short clips showing planes crashing and then an analysis of why they crashed. One thing they kept hitting was to use rudder if you find yourself taking off and starting to tip stall. I tried it a few times and wow, a little right rudder levels the wings right out. Very neat.

A guy named Ron had some nice warbirds he made from Elmers project foam. Still profile, but larger than normal and very solid.

thanks for the tip.
fly a 3D profile model if you want to learn how to use the rudder. my left stick is always moving.
