Having had a short nap after dinner and having watered the garden I said "To Hell with the wind" and gathered up my gear. My wife was walking back from tryouts for the upcoming operetta at the theater so I rolled down the window and invited her along.......she happily agreed and off we went. Aside from this guy that elected himself sheriff for the day and started shouting "What are you doing driving on that field....there were kids with 4 wheelers ripping it up the other night...do you have permission to be here!" of course there were no 4-wheeler tracks this guy just liked to bitch......the evening went well. Wind is no problem for the 260, but precise maneuvers are near impossible in such wind.....so I was happy to rip up the sky in a hap hazard fashion......Kerwin you're right about those KE spins........what a riot....and they drop fast, yet they're so mesmerizing!

It was starting to get pretty breezy as you can see from right to left down the runway. Sorry for the vid quality, it was a buddy shooting with his iPhone. Anyway, I was having a blast!

Looks like a lot of fun Plow and that plane looks like a pretty nice performer!

I just got back from Avengers. Sweet! My favorite line was the Iron Man reference to Legolas. If you haven't seen it you should Although, I didn't really feel like 3d added that much to it. I think I would have enjoyed it just as much in 2d.

Well its nice to know the literate folks here accept us illiterate folks cause the only authors I read are Sig, Carl Goldburg, BUSA, Great planes and Top flight LOL My biggerst problem might be too much on the brain or non brain but every time I have tried to read a book or novel after about a half page I can't remember what I just read cause my eyes are reading but my mind is talking to me about every other thing going on around me so then I re read and then re read and then just end up closing up the book, It once took me a Month to read and actually Understand the Pop tart Instructions

Wayne Sweet Photo's for sure thanks for sharing

Plow yehaaaa Love watching you huck around, I'm gettin ready to get another Hucking vid contest going, I'm needing to bring myself up on the totem pole and kick your butt then I'm going after Trixie lol

Buckskin the T_ _ _ Taholic meet and greet has just got to happen one of these days It has to !!!! I know I'm probably the most apt to be a PITA about getting to it though as money for traveling is not really in the budget just yet. soon though, very soon glad you found a club for $15.00 thats just awesome, We had to up our dues this year to $100 just to get rent paid and get some cash in the kitty to take care of a much needed lawn mower issue, right now we have about $90 in the account I think, all members have paid the lot rent is paid but the Land owners insurance was just sent in I believe bringing us to under a $0 balance LOL Our riding mower is shot and a 0 balance isn't helping our situation there at all The lawn runway right now is higher than the corn which started growing 2 weeks ago lol

We did just purchase a new club banner were going to fly out on the road to hopefully attract some new members this year.

You crack me up Waldo! I would love to spend a day flying with you, that would be too much fun!!

Well, I have to say Bob is one heck of a plane packer! That box had huge holes in it on both sides but the plane arrived unscathed!

And there's a Twist to this Twist, it has optional side force generators!!

It definitely smells like bacon with just a hint of waffles!

I'm going to put the .61 back in her. I think I have everything I need except for a receiver. I still haven't sent in my Futaba so I have to use my Spectrum. I need to order another one of those orange receivers and maybe a switch and a couple of props.

Bob, hurry up and make a fortune so you can come down here!!
