With some of the things I have seen you do, you keep needing more and more to get the thrill. Bi-planes with no top wing comes to mind. Maidens have to be low key events.

For a little excitement on the maiden, try my method. Wait till after the maiden to check the CG. It works out more often than you would think...lol

I have no idea why a brick wall would be upsetting.

We didnt check the SHP... He looked inside... said it will be neutral, may a bit aft... he was spot on. It had no issue with the KE Spin.

Yeah, I just finished reading the 20+ page meltdown on FG regarding the 92" Edge. Sheesh.
That's an hour of my life I'll never get back. Arron has the patience of a saint.

It's Burr Burr chilly this morning. 1st it's been in the teens since feb. The 3 month cycle has begun for us. And spring is now on my mind.
I havn't been to the mailbox in a few days, but my props should of arrived for my little pico tiger moth.
I'm planning on putting some ski's on her an do touch an goes in the snow.
Boy with the advent of the park flyer, winter flying has really changed.
OF course with Lipo's in this type of weather, a person needs to put them next to your sac to keep em warm.
O Yeah BTW you don't have to worry about anyone wanting to borry your batteries

well that Bipe thing with one wing started years ago we flew a Bipe and my friend rolled it on a landing breaking the top wing, but he still wanted to fly so we pulled off the top wing and it flew beautiful anyway so thats how that all came about LOL but I love the thrill of not knowing or what to expect

For a real thrill after a friend of yours brings a new plane to maiden and then goes through the entire preflight, place 20 quarters on a piece of packing tape at an opportune time (when he's not looking) Then stick them on under the stab or bottom fuse, sit back and roll tape what a show God I love this Hobby its so much fun
