Survived the wind.

Flew the Yak for three then the 57 SC for three. Got some cool fast backward drifting Hovers and even got some TR's in while blowing across the parking lot.

Broke a wheel on the last landing for the Yak. Was about to touch down and it popped and dropped from 6". No biggie.

The 57 was the most fun with all that power! Enough wind up there, could really do some tight Backflips! Also had to duck on the last flight, backflipped it low and coming out it turned around in the wind and headed straight for me at 3ft, Downwind.... Went Full Throttle and pulled Full Up. It basically squatted, then hauled itself right up and out of there. Wish I had the Cam. Went right over me and the tailgate that was up! Blenders were really fun today too, must have been laying on throttle.

Just glad the planes survived the risky landings.

Thanks
15X7 APC:
1128 watts
83 amps

15X7 Falcon:
1120 watts
72 amps

16X6 Falcon:
1120 watts
77 amps

Most would consider 16x6 a biginner prop as top speed is diminished. Plenty fast for me. Landings are slow. Hovers are very steady. Personal choice. Most of these guys can't be bothered by a prop that slow but as a beginner, it's great for me.

Indeed! She's sitting beside me right now having contractions. She will most likely go into labor any day now. I'll honestly be shocked if we make it past Tuesday or so.

Thanks to all for the suggestions for KE spins. Tried them out yesterday and got them going very well. I was able to get fast spins from a couple different entries as long as I did them with left rudder.

Was at the Huckfest in Lodi, CA today and saw the back half of a 70" 330SC fall off in flight, and the front half kept flying for a while must have been cracked previously because it just broke off in level flight, complete destruction

This plane just keeps getting better and better for me. I was doing slow HA rollers down on the deck this morning (well... about 5 feet up but that's as low as I've ever been) and it just felt SO locked in. I've got a 71" Slick coming my way this week but I foresee myself getting a 72" Extra at some point.
