First pack I hooked up, 3S 2200, oldest #1 pack, BAL Error.

Put #2 in, it's fine. Removed #1 and two Balance Wires came right out in my fingers. Will repair it later see if that's the reason the cell counts were off before. If it is still too weak, it will be terminated slowly.

Still have 4 packs for the 46 Yak and that's plenty to work with for an event.

SC packs done, 71 Slick packs almost done, Durango half loaded.


Also got some more new Heli parts, different Xtreme blades to try, new Main Gear and tailblade.

More good news. Was able to shave down the high spots on my damaged 57 SC wing root that was repaired after Spring D'Town. Now the wing is more flush with the Fuse, so less gap at the AR Pin area, seats better. Makes me feel better/safer with it.

Listening to the Bucks......

It's a new Shipping Product between the planes, Air Inversion Packing. Saves weight because there is no external plastic to contain the air, it's bound together by super sticky molecules woven together. Remains highly flexible and fills in all the gaps so your planes and gear stay In Place during transport!

Doylestown is high, dry and ready to FunFLY!!

Had the Civil Air Patrol kids today...did some buddy boxing, had a solo and several demo flights. BTW, my new Telink Extra 330 is rockin'. I clipped the wings from 48" down to 45" which increased the wing loading a little and increased the roll rate. Great little foamie.

Anyway, we'll open the gate tomorrow morning (normally around 9:30am) so you can get a good parking spot. Electrics can fly anytime but gas and nitro have to wait for 11am (good neighbor policy).

No landing fee, we have a porta-potty, electric generator, food and drinks (from the Sassy Dog) and a few contests...spot landing, limbo..and..I'm not sure what else but it will be fun whatever it is.

AMA card required to fly, only four aircraft up at one time, no flying over the pits.

Drive careful and looking forward to seeing you all.

Why would anyone want to Box with their Buddies at the flying field??? Wasn't that a turn off to the CAP Kids??? This is supposed to be a hobby that is safe for everyone!



Alright! Who is Going to D'Town????
