Nice Wilgas in the back! And will someone call ATC, there appears to be a separation violation.

I stopped by here a while ago to see what the "boys" were talking about. LOL!

Anyways, I finally have the pictures I promised!

You stick at it, Stinkpot.

Bein a bloke, he needs to learn how to 'finesse'. And caress them sticks, not rip at them like a hungry Hyena. LoL.

Watch the plane - the nose...the wings... the tail...

Let it tell him what he's trying to do, what the wind is trying to do to it, and what it ultimately wants to do.

If he's anything like some of us stubborn old boar-bears on here, he probably still thinks he will beat it into submission and have total control.

Nyet...

Do not seek to "control;" you can only "guide"

Ha ha ha! :lol: I'll tell him, but...

Sadly, it's not any lack of skill or patience that's slowing his progress, it's the arthritis and the vertigo. He can't look up & down too fast, or else! Another good reason a Radian is perfect for him. He can sit back in a chair and relax.

Hubby must be a lucky guy, Katie!
More than 20 years I was looking for a girl sharing my hobby actively...
Gave the search up in 2001 .

Met a girl and after a 4 year probation time (to check that she at least accepts my passion RC gliders really) married her in 2005 ...

She does not know by now that I already bought an EasyStar for her and paid the pilot insurance license for 2012 for her :-)!
Crossing fingers that the she jumps into a little bit as soon as the weather gets better and warmer!

Cheers, Tom

All I gotta say is "What took you so long?" You married her in '95! JK!

Glad to see yet another lady pilot in training. Love that smile as she tosses the FF.

Easy.

This is in chitchat, which is down in the "basement", where posts donn't count.


Suckerpunch, where in the Bay Area you at?
