I don't have any set plans for Saturday. Do you want to send me a text when you are ready to go? What time is best to fly?

Best time to fly in South Jordan is typically before noon, otherwise it gets pretty windy.

PM'd you my phone number. I'll know more today how Sat. is shaping up.

My therapist tells me I have separation anxiety, so I'd like to try a new radio system without losing the ability to switch at a moments notice to the old system...

Ummm yeah, that case might come off before I fly it.

So I picked up an SD-10G from a young whippersnapper who was headed to the military. I finally got my RX's in from across the big pond and I worked on setup last night. The antenna's are still glued in on the ASSAN system {did I mention I'm scared of change}. It will all get replaced properly and stuffed in there, but I'm not at that point yet.

Lets just say it was lonely at Riverside!

But the thermals kept me plenty happy!

I scored a 5 peat. Throw into gentle lift at the road, ride it to an explosion way north, dive home, catch a bump @ 40 mph near the road, circle to confirm, ride it Bountiful..... again.......... Rinse repeat!

Was a riot!

I was probably only launching to 120' but it felt good to throw and there was no real pain, but the arm is WEAK!!!!!! Will take some time to get all better!

Sorry I missed everyone.

Perfect day!

You had better hurry and fly with me soon. I have no intention to stay at that height for any longer than needed! But I am trying to be 1/2 way smart and not push things as I dont want to go backwords as the elbow is still very tender and I am old enough now I dont heal overnight!!!!!!!

I cant even imagine how #5 and TVK even get out of bed in the morning!
