Pecan, forgot to mention the boiled peanuts, sounds like that would go great with Calvert and Coke

Well guys I finally took an afternoon and built the storage rack I've been talking about. I spent $31.85 at the Home Depot. Already had the 1/2" plywood so for the sake of argument let's say I have $40 invested. The space I've gained is priceless. Will add casters later. Next project, wing storage...

Sure ain't much hangin out going on around here....

Been working on the bi-plane tonight. It was broke a little worse than I originally concluded. However, repairs are going well and a full recovery is expected.

I need to be working on my planes bad!
But what little time I have I need to work on the REVO for Saturdays finally.

I'm beginning to think one of the servos is intermittent on my combat plane and just flakes out sometimes...... it is still the cheesy lil $3 bah-stads that came with it. 2 uncontrolled crashes and she is now finished...... its not the way I wanted to see her go out

The feather Duster spun in twice at SEFF...... the 2nd time splitting the CF engine tube

The GeoBat went in too and needs a new face lift.....

and I have the Powered glider coming any day now to be assembled....
More rain , more mowing

Just ordered new rear tires for the tractor....... yikes that smarted!

Shadow57 (steve) told me Jamie Powell is opening the Henry county RC race track very soon.....This will further dilute VRP's profit margin I'm afraid.

I sure do look forward to another great day of flying like we had last Wednesday....... To those of you that watched Frank and I doing touch and goes with the cubs......Imagine 5 or 6 of us doing that. Thats what we used to do at the old Conley flyers field. we would pair off and do touch and goes 1 after the other for the whole tank of fuel.
We sure wore out some old Super Tigre .90's doing that. Ah , the memories.

Who will emerge to pair of as my new wing man in twenty-ten?

I'm sort of wishing I was headed to the Joe Nall fly-in.... maybe next year.

Did you do an exercism while you were at it. That little sure does need it

I did some clean up on my fleet Sunday plus a few little odds and ends. I rebent the gear on the Falcon like Mark and Tony suggested. I also found a little tear in the monokote on the horizontal stab and repaired that.

As I said on a previous post the cub has been a challenge to me since I built her. The last outing felt good plus I enjoyed watching Frank do the touch and goes with her. Marko if we can get the weather to agree and have flight school this Wednesday I devote the day to Cub touch and go practice. Time for me to get up to speed on that!

Looks like some nice items for an overall nice price on Craigs List. Got those four strokes that I love too.

Ho Jazz, look at it in a positive manner, more compassion from wife because you allowed mother-in-law to move in equals more kitchen passes. You gotta put a positive spin on it somehow brotha!!

I am gonna drive the Civic straight from work to Griffin, no trailer means limited airplanes. I am bringing the Cub and the Falcon, time to face my demons and leave the security blanket big stick at home. My plan is to fly touch and gos with the Cub and try to get the Falcon under more control. I have 65% expo on it right now, with the guidance of ye wise ones I thinks I am gonna try 70%. Yeee Haw, let's go flyin!

Words from a wise man Dave. I have actually not griped one time to the wifey and am a busting my butt over here to prepare. Prolly gonna drop the change for a storage space across the way. At least that will save my jon boat from going into the yard....Just like to have a place to vent it out. ...

Is it true?? the combat plane is going in the round file?!?! I once heard many sotries about how that thing was immortal....And that sucks about the Fduster. Were you using the old dx6 when it went in?? I would not doubt thats why the geo-bat went down too...

I will re-evaluate the combat plane once more , but dang. I'm ready for a fresh one. It is on DSM2. But them $3 cheesy Chinese servos will not be on my next one. they also will be mounted better.

The Geobat was on DSM1 and probly got mowed down at SEFF.
But... I'd probably never have that problem around here........

Bronco is still my Stand in Wing man if Frank aint here..... But Ho-jazz is knocking on the door and RevoDave is paying his dues! With Interest!
