I like the new scheme but would rather have the old orginal red scheme that AJ came up with and still uses with most of his planes no matter what it is.

Same. My favorite schemes are the original Red, and FB

Oh and those that have known and followed our family saga the last two months... Dad had a good 2nd cancer surgery last week, but had contracted MRSA before that. I mentioned this the other day. Now he has to start six weeks of drug infusion treatments, once a week.

However today, greater Drama came in the mail....

Sued in Federal Court by Big Oil over an existing lease we have and that they renewed. It makes no sense what they are doing or saying, because we did not prevent the renewal. Suing over something that has not occured.... We were shocked. Lawyer is baffled. I am seeing a second lawyer tomorrow AM. Totally nuts! Just what we needed now....

Feeling like the trials of Job in this family right now. All this stuff has happened in just two months and my dad even had the Sores!


Plane related.....On top of that I got all my new Nano's for the Micro Heli, but the tail boom fell apart last night, wiring broke and it spun in. My Boom has been en route since Monday but will not be delivered until Next Monday. Should be 2-3 days USPS. Scheduled for 7 days via Mail Innovations (UPS Sub) that HH uses. What a Joke of a shipping method! It's been sitting in Groveport for over two days, just 75 miles away. Now it went the opposite direction away from me 2 hrs to Cincy! Tomorrow it will go from Cincy to North of Pittsburgh! 120mi to the East of me, going right by us on the I-70. Then route back some weird way on Monday... Also Totally Nuts!

Orange/Pink sky glow tonight, still 93! I think it's the Colorado wildfires smoke in atmosphere making it over here. Nice southerly breeze now though. Going out to see just how hot it feels...

Good thing I got Techs to get our third AC Compressor back online at work Monday! One is still down, but holding it with three. Survived 95 today decently on 2nd floor.

I would have driven there!


I just fired out an email to HH Sales with the link to the tracking so they can see how ridiculous the Mail Innovations Routing is. Whined and lodged my complaints. this is the 2nd order that did this. Maybe they will check it out. Like I told them, leaves a bad taste. Should be 2 day delivery by ground, not 7 days...

I would if I could, just Hydrate beforehand, not after you get hot!

Plus, give the electronics a break, ease off a bit and space the flights out.


This is the advice from your Field Support Unit Crew....

Oh and avoid Pizza in that much heat or you will Loose It!

It will be a good torture test on motors and speed controllers thats for sure.

I have been doing a better job of staying hydrated. Drinking water before, during and after I am flying.

Good idea!


We probably ARE seeing the Colorado Smoke in the atmosphere and giving us the off colors....

West to East flow from CO. to OH.

Anyone know if 3DHS is gone out on a special outing or something? I sent them an email a couple days ago concerning a defective cowl that came with my 57" 330SC and I havent gotten any response. Maybe I just need to give it some more time as Im sure they are very busy. Im anxious to add it to the group but it looks nasty with the damaged cowl.
Thanks
Fixxin
