Heritage Park 8-19-10

Today was a fantastic day for flying in Simpsonville, SC. It was in 89-90* with a soft wind and beautiful clouds. We had 2 GWS Slow Sticks, eFlite Extra 260 profile, Hawk, UM SU-26xp Sukhoi and a UM J-3 Cub. We have a new 10x10 canopy to set up for some shade on these hot days as well as a table that is getting too small.

This was the first flight for one slow stick, the other slow stick had a new wing, and both the Extra 260 and Hawk had been rescued and rebuilt. Travis folded his slow stick wing doing a loop, my slow stick broke a prop and motor mount after I tried a quick take off and the prop hit the ground, the hawk stalled the right wing on the final approach and went in nose first 6' off the ground and broke a servo mount, the Extra 260 started a roll and decided not to finish it and landed nose first breaking the prop and the UM J-3 cracked the wing where it had been creased before. The only plane to "survive the day" was the UM SU-26xp.

Here are some pics of the UM Sukhoi and my walk of shame to pick up the Extra 260.
