Sunday Flying session (5-1)

Guys,

I plan to spend tomorrow figuring out my new Stylus, then it's off to the flying field on on Sunday.

So come on up to Lewisville and check out my field and the new winch!

SW intersection of Rt.407/Justin Rd and I-35. Should be out around 10:00 or so.

I'll post a map later.

Dan...

If we can't drum up a club winch (with a retriever) at the Eastfield site, we'll be there. But since so many flights need to be done to test the Hamster 2000, a winch with a retriever will be much preferred. Arnold and I have considered making a retriever for the non-club winches. Stay tuned…

Have fun guys. Got my Stylus programmed for the backup ship (Sapphire). I'm going to stay close to home and fly local. Just gotta try this new winch!

Took me all of an hour to setup the new stylus

BODACIOUS Lift all around!

Jesse and I were out all day. I hammered out 14 launches. No fuss no muss.

Total distance driven .... 10 miles round trip

Arnold says the mutt is ready to go.

Saturday wx permitting. I don't have the balls to go out on Mothers Day

You can bet I'm not flying on Mother's Day. I just got my butt chewed off for being out over 5 hours today! Oh well, great air + someone to fly with... it was worth every scold. Thanks Dan!
Jesse.

Supermutt is ready to go, 1 test flight, straight up on the launch no problems. Thermals like a batt out of heck, and now everyone can fly this airplane b/c it has a "normal" program.

I've got to get one of those that is so kool!

Remind me Dan next time we go to the field to bring my laptop so we can instantly find out our tele-men-tary.. (you know what I mean). We'll have at our field instant elevation and winch. Did I mention a free-public-vendor was going to arrive on Saturdays and Sundays to provide us with Orange Smoothie's, cold water, Straberry Lime aids and any drink we'd want? A real babe too! **sigh**

Now what do they have over their across (1 hr) town. Crime and a retriever for the winch....we even got a retriever over on our side too! and the grass is mowed!

...Oh, ya they do have the Hampster 2000....that in it's own right is too cool! Gary after you make your millions hire me for a personal pilot for your GV oky dokey!?
