The "I'm going out flying" thread

It's relatively warm and sunny out. I've got a plane all ready to go.

I'm gonna go fly!

Have fun! I went through 8 packs last night flying my foamy Nutball with lights up and down my street. Also went after work for a few hours with a friend of mine. Right now it's pretty windy. Sunday looks nice though. Monday and Tuesday looks fantastic. Glad I have those 2 days off! I need to start charging some batteries....

Well, I had fun until the plane went 45' up a tree and stayed. I got out my 'rescue tools' and it was down within half an hour.

Minor damage was sustained but nothing more than a moderate crash would cause.

RR, nice weather we've been having lately, eh? Temps above 30* for awhile now. Hopefully it sticks around and doesn't get too crappy. I've got planes to fly.....

Xpress, enjoy yourself

The first full day of flying for me in over 10 years. It was great with temps in the upper 50's and winds were light and variable. I put my foamie yak55 up no less then 25 times today. Seen people today I haven't seen in 10 years. It was great!!!

Hey, wow... This thread is actually doing pretty good

I went out and flew my PBF. Destroyed it completely. My tx battery dumped WAAAYYYY faster and sooner than it should have. I had about 30 minutes on it from a fresh charge and it went from 9.9V to 8.6 in a few minutes.

Plane got strained through the same tree that I got the little trainer thing stuck in earlier today. Then it slammed into a concrete patio in someone's backyard. The patio won, to make a long story short.

So yeah, 2 planes wrecked in one day. Time to fix the little trainer and build a new PBF.

Oh, and for those that are wondering, I built the "trainer" long after I could fly proficiently as something fun and easy. It IS fun and easy, too. Love it. Same with the PBF.... but it's a 20" foam square with 270W powering it
