This is my "I'm not flying today" post. The weather in the sky is great! Partly cloudy and high 30's. The problem? It snowed several inches last night, so the field I fly from will be snowed over, and I don't have skis for my planes! Guess I'll just watch a bunch of rednecks make left turns for 200 laps instead!

If they made nascar races too complicated, it could interfere with beer and merchandise sales

Now have two ready to test new built models and it's p!$$!&g down here in the Windy Dirty Snow Covered City

Today is sunny, not too warm or too cold, with a light breath of wind in the air... just enough to ripple the grass and leaves.

Perfect flying weather

I'm off to maiden my Freewing Hellcat just as soon as the batteries get off the charger.

Cheers - boingk

EDIT: Crap, just realised that the charger only puts out 800mAh. I'll be here for about 6 hours charging both 2200mAh batteries... damn.

Just got back from flying. It was cold and a tad windy and the air was pretty choppy as well. Not the best conditions, but I just wanted to fly. LOL sounds like a Parkzone ad.

Yeah, uh, we just got like a foot of snow dumped on us.

It was fifty degrees less than a week ago and the sidewalks were all clear and dry, with no ice

I am NOT going out flying

I got in 10 flights on Saturday on my TH P51, PZ Corsair and Dynam C47. The weather warmed up to 75 F. It was sunny and practically no wind. Perfect day to fly. Just wanted to share for the guys stuck with snow :-).

I'll be flying tomorrow. Crummy paint job on the 262. Better than bright white, anyway.

Yep, it's the GWS. This is the second one for me, the first one had a short and brutal existence. They're great flyers, though.
