Finally , the weather for tomorrow is calling for clear sky and 3 MPH wind. Charging eight batteries up and hoping for the best.

Looks like another weekend with no flying here in Pennsylvania. Windy Sat and Sun with some rain moving in. I could care less how cold it is....I just can't seem to get a break with the wind on days when I'm free to fly. I've flown twice in the past 30 days and one of those times I shouldn't have been flying but no damage done to my PZ Jug. Spring can't come soon enough.

Should hit 80 today.
Winds often below 10 mph.
Plan to try out a new < $50 30 incher with 525 watts, and fly the DeNight Special.
Tucson, Arizona.

I fly year round here in Miami...but last two weeks have REALLY windy...
Today a gust of wind slammed my little 64mm f-86 against the ground ...hard.
Lucky for me it was close to the ground, so the damage is fixable.....

No flying today as it is snowing again and the wind is too strong.
Hope we don't lose the power again, we just got it back on after 4 days without.

Some of the guys around here take advantage of extremely high winds to set new records. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1609281

So in a sense, even the wind doesn't keep people around here from flying. Truely year 'round.
