On a bright note, that means little wind which equals lots of flying time.
I would love to send some your way as the rain got me again. We had terrible drought last year (wildfires and such) so I know how you feel. Going to try again this evening. Hope you get a break from the heat .

On landing the landing gear broke free and one of the wheel pants went through the wing. It's all fixed now. I'll take it back out in a couple days.
Sorry to hear about the bipe but glad you got her fixed. I've been wanting a bipe and have been curious to how well you like it. Our club is having our annual July Picnic this Saturday. If you get a chance, stop on by

We'll I haven't really had a chance to feel it out. This one is pretty small. At a 30" WS its pretty twitchy. The first flight was just getting it trimmed out and then I had the landing gear failure. I'll let you know the next go around.

I would love to make the picnic, but they have me working weekends these days.

Uggghhh.... Haven't flown for awhile. The weather's been hot and windy lately.

Seems to have stabilized a little, though, so with any luck I'll be able to hit the field tomorrow.

I'm excited. I am expecting my new Flyzone Focke-Wulf 190 today. I can't wait to get her built and trimmed for her maiden tomorrow. Ain't life grand?

I flew a couple batteries through the Extra 300 32E yesterday evening. Rain was rearing it's ugly head again but quickly dissapated and made for a nice evening. Charging up batteries tonight for the club picnic tomorrow. Food, flying and fun...3 F's

Put 10 batteries through my Eflite Mini Ultra Stick today.

I can't start to describe the routine I put it through today. That plane is so good.
Everyone should have one in their hangar.

I'll be visiting my uncle's house sometime in the coming 2 weeks. There I will be picking up my Wilga 2000 floatplane, replacement windshield for the PC-6, and some batteries, motors and other accessories. Can't wait!

Put 3 in on mine last evening. I agree this plane is a blast. I'm running mine on the stock motor with an APC 11x4.7SF and sometimes a APC 11x7SF. What are you running yours on?

Cracking day today, zero wind, got sunnier as the day went on, with just a few spots of rain, lots of flying and even a few thermals, to boot. Best flying weather for a month, though the field was a bit boggy and my FW190 collected a huge divot on landing No real damage done though.

I maidened my Flyzone FW 190 Select Scale today. Man what a blast. I couldn't believe how slow or fast this thing can fly. I had a mishap on landing and broke one of the landing gear struts, but a little CA and she was as good as new. This plane is just plain awesome. I couldn't believe how easy she is to fly and very quiet too. I just need to learn how to land her better.

you're making me jealous chuck. racing through the low wing planes at this rate the t28 won't have anything left to teach you
anyways, congrats on your maiden.
