No test.

We have had alot of wind and rain. On the few calm days we have had the ground has been soaked and I dont trust the bungee stake to stay put in the soaked ground and hold 25lbs of pull. I have been bit twice by the bungee, but getting bit by the stake itself is not on my bucket list!

I sanded her down to get rid of the paint gas bubbles from the sun, spackeled the damaged area and have glass on her. I am currently sanding down the glass filler and have come to the conclusion that I got cocky after glassing the Cougar and didnt spend enough time making sure I layed the glass down smoothly so I am going to be sanding for a while. LOL

Yeah! been watchin' for some news.

Bryan, read my maiden flight report. The CG we're at is a bit nose heavy. Made for some exciting landings. I've been walking it back and the handling get better with each flight.

I will take a read.

No flight reports, been rainy and windy every weekend and on the "nice" days I have been out of town for soccer. Except today, first home game and we had heavy rain....I came home soaked and cold.

Bryan - Why can't you maiden her in the rain during a soccer match? Marines adapt to their environment!

Jim,

Its hard to coach 8 girls under the age of 12 on the field and control the other 4 on the bench AND fly...not to mention landing would be a pain with the 32 soccer goals and light poles all over the place!

Its hard to believe that I learned to fly (and flew the EFlite AT6) on one of those soccer fields. They seem small now that I have private land I fly on. LOL

Bryan
