What you guys dont realize, is that the video was not sped up. It settled into a nice glide at about 40 MPH!!!!!


Turned out great Finch, no chase cam video????

Just got home from Az. Yeah. I screwed up in communication with my wife and she didn't bring enough Parkinson's medication. When she discovered that she was going to run out she wanted me to just drop her off at the air port so I could continue, but I couldn't do that. So I brought her home.

I had a blast though.

See the attached photo. This is wat a Concept looks like after it closes a circuit on power lines

OK, here is my revised checklist for when flyin with Finch.

#1 Take tail covers off the planes before throwing
#2 Turn on plane before throwing
#3 Make sure batteries in plane are charged.
#4 Make sure batteries in tx are charged.
#5 Make sure to keep the nose on the plane after launch.
#6 Dont land in BFT's
#7 Dont land on fences.
#8 Dont fly your plane until you cannot see it in any portion of the thermal turn.
#9 Watch were Mike goes.
#10 Tell me if Brandon is climbing in that air, cuz that will mean its monster air!
#11 Catch plane and hold onto it on QT task.
#12 Dont land in feces.
#13 Take lens cover off.

Geesh, seems like alot of stuff I have to do so you can fly!

When you fly in the southern warmer states where the Africanized bees are plan on something else besides sun screen. They seemed to be attracted to the smell. After I put on the sun screen I was constantly bothered by the bees.

While I was flying and being coached by Gregg McGill I felt something on my hand. I wiggled my fingers and then a bee stung me on my pinky finger. It was painful for quite a while. It still itches.

Mix some tabaco with your sunscreen and they will stay away!
