Well mix some of that heat with the weather here and we'll both be happy lol. Although I did manage to get some flying in last Sunday. first time since about Labor Day lol.
Not as much fun these days though. Lost my flying buddy last month. Just ain't the same without my faithful Beagle.

Sorry to hear about all the lost co-pilots Besides flying planes, animals are also a passion of mine. Now you just have to get a red baron plane and have snoopy flying it in honor of your beagle As for the Pug all I can think of is the movie Men in Black. Awesomesauce!

Sorry about the copilot Jim. Glad to see ya surface again. Hope all else is well. Can't seem to catch a break on the weather around here lately either. Either bad weather or work. Seems like I only get work calls on nice days.

Still flying that big T---t? How is that engine doing. I am still impressed by it's performance.

Well Gent's I had to be at work at 9 this morning but I still managed to get two flights on the 47" Edge and two flights on the T___t 40.

What a HOOT! It seems like flying has gotten a lot more fun with the addition of the twist to my fleet. It is a real crowd pleaser. My brother and some of his friends came out to watch me and my other brother fly this morning. It was very gratifying to hear their reactions to the twist taking off into a straight up vertical climb

Both of these planes are so much fun to fly that I just sit here and think about what each of them do well trying to decide which one is more fun and can't ever decide.

On the Edge I started trying to do a new trick I have seen on some of the recent Joe Nall vids called a Pop Top. It's like doing a blender going up instead of down and the stall turn at the top looks really cool. I was able to do it a couple times out of a dozen or so tries. It's kind of hard to get the timing right and I haven't tried to do it before so I have no concept of exactly what inputs go where in it all. Even the ones that didn't look quite right were still cool and fun to do. Overall... I crammed a lot of fun into an hour this morning.

Sorry no vids...

Jim I hear you I lost mine in 08.

MT just who is that?

Well I'm off work for awhile, would like to go out an at least try to fly but I gotta go back this after noon for a couple of hrs.

I don't know I may still be able to hook up with LT Dan ( alias K49) later.

If you are refering to the photo.... it's my wife's Pom/Chihuahua cross... she climbed into the rear cockpit of my PT19 so I had to take her pic
she is always watching me work on planes

Yep still only flying the big t---t. That Syssa engine still starts and runs great. Just need decent weather and more $$$. lol
Wouldn't mind having a couple more planes with the Syssa engines in em.
