Well, we arrived at the apartment. Its pretty small. Cant wait for christmas. I didn't bring my Tx, so its not worth getting a nano cpx or a mini vapor or something . I wish my 9958 had arrived. Waiting on that crack yak or PZ stinson

I went out & flew my 130X from the deck. I crashed it while doing a loop a bit too close to one of my maples. I failed to account for the winds aloft & got blown off course on the way over the top. I happened to get it on video.

Merry Christmas from Norway!

Quite warm here today (25-26 deg. F / -4 deg. Celsius) and it just came 5-6 inches of snow last night - and almost no wind, so I managed to squeeze in some air time before the Christmas dinner... Two batteries with my SlowStickX and then 3 batteries with a Yak-54 - a good 30-35 minutes in the air is not bad this time of the year

Season greetings from Norway,
Kai W-E

Wahoo managed a quick flight this morning before it rained. Only had 3 batteries but was enough to get my fix had a battery on my sabre and two on my t28 funfighter running 4s

All the best all.

It's -6 F, so I canceled my morning flight in the yard.

Merry Christmas from Minnesota!

Turboparker - I've been waiting for the temperature to RISE to -6 so I can go out flying! It's been -30s and -40s here, finally above zero today but I'm in the fire station for Christmas. Tomorrow if it's not too windy....
