Brilliant sunshine and very light, though cold, wind here - so I'm off to the field. Hang spring cleaning and off we go!

I found many thermals yesterday....and it was chilly and windy.
I flew all day from 8 am to 2:30 pm.
The day went through many changes.

Today I work.

It's going to be 61F today and wall-to-wall sunshine. Winds are going to be calm so the field will definitely be busy today. Already told the wife she won't see me until dark!

Taking my Reactor, T-Rex 500, Blade 400, T-28, and another plane TBD during packing. P-38? AMX? So many choices!

Wow... I think I had an actual good idea starting this one

I'm gonna go fly the same plane that I put in the tree yesterday. It's 100% repaired, but this morning a lot of parts had to be remade

Hope it's as calm out there as it looks

Had fun with the HZ MSC yesterday. But don't want to fly it again till I figure out why its not responding properly to aileron inputs.

So I will be taking the GuanLi J3 out in a bit. I added a bit more down thrust to the motor mount and want to see if it has improved the constant climb this thing has when over 1/3 throttle.

I did a lot of flying today. Thrashed and trashed the little trainer, but it ain't dead yet. I upped the power from a Suppo 2212-10 (1400kV) with a GWS HD8040 and an Electrifly 3S 910mAh lipo to something with a little more punch (ok, a LOT more)... Suppo 2217-6 (1500kV, and bigger than the other one) swinging a GWS HD9075 on a Turnigy 3S 1300mAh 30C pack.

Man is it crazy.... This shows I need to get one of my more advanced planes up and going. I'm sitting here smashing up a scratchbuilt trainer just having fun....

I need help.. I took my Christmas plane,Hybrid Air from Parkflyers.com, out for its Maiden flight today low winds it was great day... Did the CG check the roll check, radio check, & power check all looks great.. Did a couple of high speed taxis to make sure it went straight. So now ready to get er up' well it went up then rolled hard to left about a foot off the deck and crashed. Well checked it out no damage so 2nd attempt same thing & ripped off the engine. Now its in backroom with the glue and weights holding it in place.
What happened and how do I avoid it in future is my question for you. Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance..

Great flying weekend. Temps low 40's low wind. Fri. 5 pacs on micro p-51, sat. 4 pacs on t-28, today 4 pacs on hz cub, 4 pacs on t-28, 4 pacs on micro p-51, little too windy for that one today, but still had fun with it. My son maidened his hz mini cub with 4 pacs, impressive cub I might add. He was the one who flew the 4 pacs on the full sized cub. Beginner, and doing well he is! We had a blast! Stumbled upon a flying club from Monroe that was set up in the mall a little later in the afternoon who had a decent set up in the middle of the mall. got to check out a few of the larger gas planes, pretty cool. Fellow told me that they were there to promote the hobby. Awsome!
