Final got some Church flying site pics!

Wind all week has been gusting to 20 and I haven't been able to fly! Went over before 8AM this morning and by the time I landed the plane the wind was coming up! Early morning is not the best time for the Mustek GSmart 3 but here is what I was able to snap! I was afraid to get too high as wind is supposed to be 20+ again today and I wanted to be low enough to be able to power back down if required! The bipe flys better with the 14 X 7 prop on the Astro 020 and climb out can go vertical though slowly! I can pretty well climb out in a 20 foot square. Here's the pics. (Try not to get too bored! )

First pic is of my runway on North side of church. Since the sun was coming up I had to take off toward the trees bordering the street!

Church site looking east. I didn't realize until I returned home and looked at the pics that the large trees on the east side of the church lot have all been removed except one fairly small tree. The area has been graded and a huge gravel pad placed. I have no idea what he intends but am sure happy to see the trees gone!
Edit: I've got to start looking for typos!!!

Didn't mean to wake you! The main reason for the pics of the church is they post them on the church info board! I also wanted a pic of the house next to the street! The owner was standing in the garden patch watching the trike SS when the wings folded. It crashed in the bush at the end of the garden and he calmly strolled over and retrived what was left of the plane and handed it to me across the fence! I'll print it up on an 8 X 10 and give him a copy!

You beat me to it. I'm planning to get an AP of my church this Sunday, if it's not raining.

Thanks for the thread heads up as I had somehow missed seeing it! Looks like the simple fix is either treasure the weird pic or just wait to snap until it warms up! No big deal really!
