Florida flying! A bit windy in the winter so dawn is the time to fly. Summers are great and still if you don't mind some sweat.

Sunrise at 58 degrees and an 8mph wind. I'm starting to love this bird.

Skydiver update: the first version was much to complicated.
I realized it much simpler now with a rubber band.

Happy Thanksgiving to the Fun Cub gang
7am Palm Beach County FL 57degrees and winds 11 gusting 22...so I flew anyway!!!!
Flew one battery, little rough in some gust but all in all a good flight until final. Caught a big gust about three feet off the ground and left wing tip went up like a rocket, right caught and she cart wheeled Luckily just tail wheel fitting got pulled loose so she'll be back in the air by the weekend

RickFlaGuy, hope you have better luck on the west side!
