lol... Kerwin is referring to the custom piston ring he advised me to put in the PTE. I tell you what... people are asking me left and right what engine is in it I think it is just about broken in now. It is running really reliably and is a monster power house. Thanks for the advice Kerwin That was some SwEET SauCE!

I went to fly today and ended up being flight instructor for a bunch of new pilots and also a maiden flight pilot for some new pilots! Got there at 8:30 and didn't get to fly one of my planes until 11am! Flew a few packs on my 65" Vyper...man that Scorpion has LOTS of power !! I really enjoyed helping out the newer pilots in the club, and helping guys get their new planes trimmed out...new guys will keep our club healthy and active for years to come, and also I can make sure they hear about 3D flying!!!

Still doesntmake sense man. Too vague. If they really caught him doping on "X" event you know they would talk about it. They don't have a failed drug test, they dont have a paper trail. I just haven't seen the hard proof. It also looks like the ICO is asking for details before they take titles away. Tour de france still lists armstrong as the winner of those races. Something doesnt make sense in all this. I think this would be the equivalent of an organization in spain saying for whatever reason they were taking away a win by pablo montoya in a nascar event. They dont have the jursidiction. This group sets a scary precedent. They are going after a retired rider for something that happened 15 years ago. It just doesnt pass the smell test. Will be interesting to see how this unfolds.

Vodka clamato and 57 also is nice, and horse radish

Salt pepper etc.

No pickled beans , those are gross

Guys I'm spending money like I got it. Momma just let me pull the trigger for another little Edge. Now she needs to let me order a new fuse for the twist. O where does it ever end. LOL
Now momma and I discussed it.
I mainly ordered the Edge over the twist because I'll fly it more. I don't need anyone around to fly it.
Now I've just got to pay my property taxes, personal property taxes, License my car, Buy new teeth, and pay for another vacation. O yeah I still need to buy an 71 inch Slick.
I'm now accepting donations. LOL

O no Snowy Snowy Snowy. I told you parkflyers don't count.
Just like Billy. I did not have sex with that woman.
I still love my glow. Why just this morning when I was moving the LT 40 for charging. I spilled alittle glow fuel on me. I just rubbed it in for good luck.

O it was a very twisted afternoon and I do mean twisted. You see I was pushing the Green Machine so hard that the fuel tank vent tube moved from out and under the cowl to in beteewn the fuse and canopy in the middle of the canopy. Now the fuse and the canopy fit flush to each other and is bolted down. So how in the heck the vent tube got there is beyond me.. I fill the plane up before flight and fuel came out of the vent tube. I then took her up and on my up lines I would go WOT, full left rudder, full down elev and full right aileron.
She does this weird snap that ends up in a knife edge spin then into a tight inverted high alpha spin. I left the throttle wide open for a good 15 to 20 seconds.
Up on landing thats when I noticed the vent tube sticking out of the canopy/fuse and it was very tight. The reason I landed is I noticed the motor running a bit funny. Now I know why.

All in all the day was pretty good. K49 flew his relvover, shoestring, and his Tango.
We had a really good turn out today. there were 6 of us and ther rain managed to let up to allow us to fly.

I've begun the Tiger Moth Build and unfortunately I didn't take any pictures Kerwin.....I'll take some tomorrow before I start painting.

I had the whole day off, but it rained so the batteries I charged in the morning will have to stay charged until I fly next.

Two weeks and I'm down the first 20 lbs.....now comes the tough stuff....portion control!!!!! I've stabilized my blood sugar levels to normal. The bad news.....I have to stop using adjectives that are food related........that and no more food analogies........ If Plow can do it.......so can I!
