Come on over! Here a day over 20mph is considered windy lol... Other than the occasional 2 hour tropical rain almost every day is a flying day. It makes you very spoiled. The heat is finally letting go which means it will be a COLD 60 degrees, hehe.

Pitt/bhoov, still under 20mph even for Saturday.. If it is under 30, I am game...

You fly at FIU? Or at AMPS?

Just curious

Actually, I fly in the cursed, forsaken, the "in between 9 antennas" Ives Estate Park. We love it tough. It is not as small as the map makes it seems.
Rarely I go to Markham Park (which is a sanctioned AMA Field with an actual runway).

Wjb111, the plane looks great. I am too waiting for calm weather and the rain to stop. It has been constantly raining for the last few weeks.

Happy Holidays !!!

Here is the first fight of 2013 and with a new front landing gear.

I have added 2 1/2 in wheel to the front and it has made a world of difference. Landings are smoother and take off rolls are much better.

The front gear is from an old Dynam T-28 I had laying around. I just drilled the hole on the firewall some the thicker rod would go in and used a new steering collar. Now its nice and sturdy and doesnt bend easily. I also made a nice foam mount for my GoPro

That flight was not with the windshield on. I forgot to put it on at the last minute

Nice setup, flight & video. Are you using the GoPro 2 or 3?

Neat work. Is that the factory spinner with the MAS prop?

I went out yesterday for day of flying. Brought my FMS Zero, T-28 and Cessna and I had a blast. The Cessna had the most flight time. This time I took it way up. Had the gopro pointed thru the left front window, and it actually showed great thru the tinted window
