Built two planes today...........

All by myself. NO HELP AT ALL!

I did have to use Old Grumpys tools!

I bought them for me with my own money. Old Grumpy
can't touch them! They are mine!

A Cox Sky Ranger and a Cox Sky Cruiser.

Tower had them on sale with a free extra battery at Christmas
time.

Can't wait for a nice clam day to go fly by my self!

OK, I need a field box, a new outfit, some shoes, hat.

I put clear tape on the bottom of the wing to stiffen it
a bit. The other one has a CF spar. I put some tape
on the bottom to protect it when landing.

Do I need to do a watt test?

You surely don't need a watt test with those. Just charge and fly. We won't tell grumpy.

Got a few short flights today, but it was a little breezy for the
Ranger. The Cruiser did better. I need more throw I think.

Looks like you are having weather like we are in SC, warm and wet or dry cold and windy.
I did get to fly Sunday and Monday, little windy but the Fun Cub didn't mind.

It was nice today, but windy, Brad did get to ride his bike
today, first time in a couple months.

Brads bike. If you have to ask, you can't afford one.

Brad has a vintage Trek, total restored, all modern gear.



I ride an antique Spalding.



He calls this one his "beater bike"!

I would have to put new tires on ours in order to ride them. Does Brads bike have a Carbon Fiber frame ?
