Rain, wet grass, chance of more rain. OK, we need the rain. I can wait to play. I'm just getting anxious to fly my Giant Home Depot foam F-15.

Good flying weather here this morning and took advantage of it so far.
Flew the Slick twice, the Inf.2 , the Foker, the Maniac and still calm out.
Very unusual to get that much flying in and still calm.
Cheers

Beautiful day here today but, the doctor won't let me go till tomorrow. Play time will have to be tomorrow after noon. Suppose to be some wind around 9-10 mph just right. Rains not suppose to be here till afternoon. Yee Haw!! Maybe I'll get some time in around 10 or 11. One can only hope.

Well I went to the soccer field to fly my giant f-15 and no sooner had I arrived and it started raining. Then when it stopped the soccer players started showing up. This day was almost a complete bust. On the way out there was a vacant baseball diamond so I got the small EPP Pitts out and flew 4 packs. Oh well.

Pretty darn hot with skyrocketing humidity in Papua.
The mornings and around 4-5 in the afternoon are exceptions. Will fly in those times tomorrow.

Going to be very calm here in the Twin Cities tomorrow. Just put together a Multiplex Easy Cub a couple days ago so I can have my dad fly it (buddy box) when he visits in a couple weeks. Going to take my daughter out tomorrow and have her try it out.

Well here in the South Carolina its as expected. Nice and humid. Rain rain rain. I think my new plane is a rain maker. Everytime I want to fly it rains. We do need the rain though. Will try again tomorrow.

Well the weather here this morning said go fly so i did and the first flight with the
NoobTube went very well. I did all my usual rolls and loops and banks and fig.8's
and then cut the speed for my landing and made a nice one.
I figured while the wind was still down i would get the Slick ready for a flight.
Got her out and launched her and did all the usual stuff but when i cut the speed
for the landing approach i made a mistake and got her in a small tree beside the
garage. I got my metal pole that i use for recovering planes from trees and proceeded to poke her down. I took a lot of poking and destroyed the plane.
Oh well i can build something else now.
