bring lead for your shoes tomorrow.... if it is not lightning...it will be 20mph winds

sun going down here. In a rush to enjoy maybe one minute of my day so I went to take out the "recently repaired Addiction" in the backyard and saw I reassembled the plane cowl before connecting the motor to the ESC...... countless stupid wasted minutes as I had to jerk around with it while light started to go away

no Sam man to film so I just set up a cam on the deck and thought I would have some fun.... few hovers...foggy mind....stupid turns and drum roll onto the ground... it is out of site in the video but you can hear the gun shot as I tagged the grass.....the wings on this plane are like graham crackers so it is always wise to buy some covering for the thing.... My lights come from HK any day now so this will be my first night flyer... should look cool lit up in green light from the inside..

Oh well.... back on the repair bench.. good news is at least the cowl and motor box I just fixed are fine.... dumping video on Vimeo now for a laugh ....... In bed...

no he did not. Here is the deal. I have a 5:30 apointment that I can not get out of. If I can get to the field at 4pm, I should be good until around 4:50. I have the receiver so we can bind and look at Nick's radio to put the settings in my DX7. Should not take too long. Someone text me with the address of the field. What time do you guys think you will get there? Bob said he could be there by 4 or whatever time. Looks like the rain will be there by 5-5:30.

you won't make it back with that time frame.... 77 is a mess with construction and you will sit there on the southbound leg and want to blow your brains out... trust me

if you have a 530 PM must attend and you leave the field at 430 PM, there is an 80% chance you may not make it....just saying

thanks for all your help guys. Glad the Barc and Stacks guys got together. Now if the weather would shape up, I think we need many days to fly to the north field and the south.

Sat in traffic... not to bad... Then when I clicked the 8 track to track 3. it jammed. ruining my favorite 8 track tape. I have a call into Jenson to see if it is still under warranty. I think it might be dirty head! 8 track tapes are the only thing I know that does not like dirty head.

Yeh once Jenson moved in on Emerson's market I saw a real drop in 8 track quality

I drove down brecksville Rd all the way down to a cross road to get home. Actually moved better than 77. Glad you all made it home from our dress rehearsal

Yeh that is a speed 600 scorpion with a 4x4 prop. I think it is supposed to do 130mph but we never timed it when I flew it last
