I dont know if there has been a sighting of 2 yanks at the same time in years!!!! They say they are strong and then 1 guy in a sweater shows up!!!!!!!

Sounds like Finch & I are in a bit of an arms race!!!!!!!!

Don't bring up the planes on the road incident... I may need another dose of medication if I think about it again.

Nay, I think the wing can handle it. The motor alone weighs 12.3 oz so getting her to balance was a chore. The 4000 mah 4s pack was a tight fit too, but helped to balance the plane. 3000 watts aught to get her vertical in no time...

I'll bet you could catch a ride all the way to the top, only problem is you'd never see it again

It looks like 44% cloud cover for most of the day in Layton tomorrow, no need to trek up the canyon. I'm in for wherever we fly

How many can we expect from points south? I vote for WSUD if there are a couple coming up from SLC or further. Otherwise the BDO would be best as you don't have the canyon wind to worry about.

So... looks like Jim and I are the only DLGers awake today. I can't believe no one has commented on my "Slap-A-LeMon poster"... Do you know how LONG that took me to make?!? What's WSUD?

I'm still planning on flying tomorrow. You might get out of the inversion if going up the canyon, but there is a ton of snow and planes will be hard to launch. I'm all for WSUD or BDO.

Lets keep an eye on the fog too. The BDO is up higher than WSUD and I've noticed while fog stays in Layton, its bright up here in Ogden. I'll let you know if it is sunny up here, but if its foggy both spots, lets just go where it is closer for everyone.

What's a good paint scheme for maximum visibility? LEDs, maybe?
