A little of everything wind, rain, calm air, bugs
Had some adventuresome flying tonight. Started off in a pretty healthy wind but i was flying no matter what. Serious withdrawl was setting in. It slowly died down after the rains showers to pretty tame levels. Probably should've been kite flying instead of plane flying at the start. Lol.
It was chaotic in the wind but fought thru it. 30% throttle into the breeze was hovering. Lol. And downwind was almost an out of control rocket ship. Was a ride but stuck with it. The one thing flying in the breeze did was really make me lay attention to exactly what I was doing and the changing winds.
Once the wind died some was able to fly a whole bunch of inverted at about 4 feet off the ground. Almost tore off the tail when a puff of breeze smacked me into the ground sadly lol. It was one of those crashes where I just kind of laughed and said whoops. Not much you can do about a little gust knocking around a tiny airplane. Lol. I was proud that I flew at least a solid minute of low level inverted flight.
I love this plane and can't wait to get out and fly some more tomorrow. I am really starting to get the hang of it. It's not a true aerobatic machine but it gives me some thrills and then it does the nice slow easy buzzing around close flying.
