Flew my champ and corsair last night and the champ was a bit squirrely and the corsair was on rails. This morning the corsair had a love affair with the turf and the champ was like butter. Go figure????

Very sad man, very sad. Tornadoes are a scary thing, especially when they strike in the middle of the night. Since I have a little rug rat now, whenever we get a watch or warning @ night, I stay up all night on tornado watch.

Our weather is getting even more unpredictable. Extreme cold, extreme heat, and more weather related natural disasters. Hurricane season is starting up now, or soon at least. We can't catch a break on the east coast. With the irreversible damage we have caused to this planet and its atmosphere, I'd hate to see it in a hundred years... Luckily I won't have to worry about that I'll be worm food.

Viper, you just read my mind. The weather truly is getting very unpredictable. A lot more tropical type weather up here. Sometimes such extreme winds and torrential downpours hit here, it's just unbelievable. We had a tornado not far from my home too last year ripping apart many houses - NEVER has that happened before.

A lot more precipitation and humidity as well. It's really crazy here.

My best wishes to to those impacted by the tornado.

way to many Champs up in the air disturbing things. Then you add sp motors, 240mah batteries and 5043 props, way to much air being moved around up there.

That's why we keep seeing birds go after us.

They know what we are doing

I'm no doomsday negative nancy... But we are destroying this planet, slowly but surely.

If we just could have lived like the native americans the world would have lasted forever, or atleast until we got smashed by a asteroid. Prolly wouldn't be flying RC tho

I think I was too Lee, hard to remember. haha

Alright I've got to get some work done.
Back to your regular scheduled champ programming.

It is 91*F here right now. Calmish winds. And I just fixed my Mid Sized J-3 Cub. My motor mounting system seams to have survived the last test flight. Gonna get up the courage to test again soon. Woot
