Radian pro is in the car. Gonna point it into the wind and glide for an hour on a 1300mah pack. Dfc bound about 5pm. Anyone else up for a sunset session?

Wow. I don't care what the weather guy says, it is freakin SUPER windy! Now that they have bulldozed half the property and left exposed dirt, it was a giant swirling dust bowl. Not as enjoyable as I was hoping for.

I will be out all next week, wind or no; I dont give a ....bleeep. I am going to be out there, tornado swirls or not.

I learnesd a few seasons ago, you either learn to fly with the wind or your spend a lot of time in the pits and on the sideline.

That said, I hopes to see all yall out with your foamies and wings next week Lets hope for 15+; we all could use the practice!

I know I can speak for andrew and matt, they taught me how to fly in the shiznizitzel

LOL... I think we should move to the west side, maybe near Douglasville or something?

Just an idea...

I just took a 1 hour introductory flight lesson out at PDK. It was as
awesome. I think I found my dream FPV plane. Now I just need about $10,000.. Kyle, if you fly, I will pay for an hour or 2, it's much more fun than scanning googlemaps that could be out of date! seriously. Lemme know.

Nice, congrats..I just went out last week and got checked out in a 172..was well kinda sporty on the 1st landing..I did the typical airline thing that I said I would never do, I flared at 20 feet and had a hard time pulling the power out, haha...well it was ok just did a full stop taxi back and the other ones where fine, so if anyone wants to go fly ill split the time with ya and even sign your logbook since im still a CFI.

I went out at 8am to fly the Habu and was a no go...since all of the workers where there..sucks.

I for once, camped (since they did have awesome showers and bathhouse.

Ok, anyone up for this weekend? Today may be good later for some T-28 backward flight I figure....

Hit me up if you are going out to DFC!!
My wife & I went to e-Nall yesterday morning. Not much flying going on. Brought the sailboat just to have something to do. Someone else had one, and we did races for about 2-3 hours.

Winds died down a little bit (and I mean VERY little) and I got some airtime on the SuperFly. All in all it was mostly a kegger in the field.

Don't know if I'll make Hodges... been working on side projects here, but we'll see how it goes. I want to go, that's for sure - other things tend to get in the way...
