I drove by PB about 2pm on my way home from Central Or today and I really wished I
had a plane with me. All the flags along the freeway were pointing in the right direction, standing straight out and no rain to boot.
If I only had my Rotor with the new flip up hatch done and with me.......sigh ;-(

sure hope someone got up there and enjoyed the great air today.

Oh well maybe next time...

Thanks for thinking of the JW Pete. It's Orange and black but the white coroplast tail is what you can see. If you stand about 75 feet east of the antenna compound and face away from the slope (north by northeast), bend over and sight from about the waist you can see the white tail in the first deciduous (oak?) tree beyond the firs. You're looking down a little at it from that vantage although it's about 80 feet off the ground.

Hope to get down week after next to grab it.

Thanks, I dont have good scale but it weighs about 3.5 to 4 lbs and is unballasted, never put any lead in it because it does so well in any winds up to 30+.
