Some onboard footage from the Edge 540QQ. This was how I spent my lunch break today. It was nice out for a mid January day!

So, I flew everything today, and it was good. Came home, unloaded the car. I carry the Pete n Poke fuselage back downstairs holding it by its cabane struts as usual, and one freaking comes off in my hands! Glad THAT didn't happen while flying! Its just the top of one, not the part that glues into the fuse so should be easy to re epoxy.. I am thinking the joint must have been weakened by several recent hard bumps on landing where the wing collided with an object. Maybe I should use some metal screws through the wood like some people say to do on this model.

Haven't had any decent wx for awhile around here. The good news is that we have our indoor spot again on every other Saturday night for the rest of the winter! I'll be flying the Beast 3D, Sbach 3D, Carbon Cub, Blade 130X, and nCPX there tomorrow night.

Wind should be straight off the South end of the RW and 5mph max and warm I may have to show up too. Haven't flown in a month!
