Flight report
Well it was a great day of fog and rain and mist but minimal wind this week
Did the best Flatspins ever with the T40 leveled her right out and she stayed I had hopes of climbing but it didn't.

We Had 4 flyers there today and we all had successful flights until wwe mentioned Formation flight

The nexstar did a big loop on take off and smashed into the runway,

Then the FPV Kadet saw this happen and circled back to land to do it again and over shot the runway and stalled out in the corn,

The Spitfire and The T40 took to the skys and in seconds the spitfire was half out of control as the battery was dying he got it back to the runway but nosed it in and busted off the firewall Again But the battery died and wouldn't even move the elevator anymore so it was good he even got it back to the runway and with so little damage,

and of course I proudly shouted out "the Great Waldo Pepper is till in the sky and then Landed and taxied right back to the starting table, I had about 6 T40 flights today not one single WOS and man it felt good

The FPV guy tried landing his Plane in a flat level area way far away from us over the field, well it looked nice from the sky and he has nice big bush tires on his KAdet well as soon as he touched down the 2 foot grass sucked his plane right in LOLOL God we laughed I mean not even a second of roll,,, No damage done but a 14 minute walk to the plane to walk all the way back with it LOL as usual we had a blast, Vids to come soon this week.

Then went and took the boat out of the lake Summer boating is officially over lol But I drove around the whole lake for 3 hours in the sprinkles cold wind and overcast, We had a great time before removing it

Snowman Holy crapola you did a bunch of stuff today Kudos man

Brathanke sorry to hear of the missed flight time and loose muffler but its great you were watching the sons Soccer game Those are the true great times of families

Here is the Vid of the FPV Attempted Bush Landing from My friends Plane the first part is him testing the new antenna out then he does some low level FPV Flying to check out the Landing site before comitting He gets a 100% and A++++++++++ for the Kahunes to even try it so far away the low level and Bush landing starts around 5:07
FPV 2.4Ghz Antenna Test (6 min 18 sec)

Flight Report...

There are days when you just dont know where things get off too. That was today,
Happy Anniversary D22! Happy hair doo and coming BDay Creo!

Had a bit of a mishap a couple weeks are.. Took off with my Blank, Banged it into a hover the minute it took off....except.... the elevator stayed in the up position. Not knowing was it a thumb issue or did the servo hang, it has been acting questionable, I changed it out. I also had repair the damage from the bottom of the loop when the ground jumped up to meet the plane.... Not bad at all, but little glue and covering was required.

Taking the Muffler off, a bolt broke giving me a reason to get the Tune Pipe I have been wanting. It came in yesterday, Mac Tuned Muffler.

I took it to the field, we had to reset the needle, it seemed to not really seem to RPM up.... I was WRONG...

Remember that servo I changed? I didnt and the first flight was a HOOT! Needed right aileron and up trim... I was soo obsessed with the motor and such I forgot all about the control changed... All Ended well after I got it trimmed and on the ground in a stiff cross wind <sigh>

Mac Tuned Muffler on the 36 TT Pro..... I am thinking it lost weight and gained POWER. Hovers were nearly full throttle with the stock muffy. Now.... After I got things sorted, between 1/2 and 3/4 it wants so climb in a hover. I am soo impressed what the 35 bucks did for it.

I was able to fly some this morning. Drizzle and windy. I just played with the Pizza Box. I had to finish the kitchen faucet change I started last night. The sprayer hose in the box did not fit the faucet - I really tried to make that work. So, another 40 miles there and back. I finally got it fixed in about 30 minutes with the new faucet. Then I had to change the float in the master bath.

So there is MY flight report for today.
