Right on Jason! Thanks!

I wish I was around to go out there with you today. Let's plan on going out there late May, (when I get back from east Asia).

October at the Gorge

James Duarte and I finally finished our JW's and headed out to Carrizo Gorge the first opportunity we had... there was rain all the way out to the hill but when we parked, it let up and we scooted up the hill faster than ever (it's easy with just a JW and not a bag full of heavies). The storm cleared out within an hour and we were burning laps, disappearing in the clouds from time to time. My dub was really heavy and when it started going fast it lost elevator authority... in the end of the vid with both dubs going round and round eventually only one comes out of the bottom turn.

Another Trip To Carrizo Gorge (7 min 7 sec)

Yeah Ray... watch the end of the video again. We walk back with it and I'm showing Duarte what I thought the plane did.
I still have to open up the wing and find out what happened to the battery/tx... all the gear was in the wing. There was nothing but weight in the nose and it all exited and is now a part of the mountain.

With 80% cloud cover, rain, and 41˚F... sounds like 75% of the times we went up there!
