Just finished a local contest. Finished 3rd, and Merrill won! Big thanks to Merrill, as I forgot my tails (duh) and he gave me his set so I could fly. I will let him fill in the details...very good Oculus day.

Warren did good today. The wind was blowing right up the slope to give us a nice wave lift action. It was great having Warren there today. What a cool dude you ROCK!

Sunday went to the Gene Hays event in Riverside. Nice day to fly. Even got to see a AVA Pro go up in smoke. High power line tend to do that! I placed 3rd with the Oculus. Great Day!

Well My second Oculus is coming along slowly, With work and summer projects it is hard to find the time...But it will be done for the Fall Fest at Visalia.

I'm moments away from starting the repairs to mine.... The mid-air (round before the last one at SVSS) left her heavily damaged (but I still launched after the mid-air and managed a 10:00.03 and 97 for the last round!).

I hate doing repairs.

That's just a flesh wound...I'll look like new in no time. Crazy how much paint the Aspire left on your built-up wing! Most balsa models would have been confetti, I'll bet. That carbon tube LE must be pretty stout!

I think it just flexed back at the initial hit, until it was loaded, then cut through the Aspire's wing skin.

That carbon tube can take a big load.

A high speed photo of the time of impact would be priceless.....wish someone would have got that!
At any rate, its totally repairable. Heck, it was apparently flyable too. ;-P

I hate to see anyone's plane take a hit but to have a video to see how the wing held up and how the impact was adsorbed without total failure would help to understand the benefits of one building design over another.
