flying over water (off topic)

Last weekend I spent a night on a local lake, Eagle Lake for those who might
care.
The trip had nothing to do with flying BTW, so naturally I brought a slow
flier to play with in the morning the wind was nearly none existent do I
took my little plane down to the beach. I flew for a short while and enjoyed
it allot. So, I'm wondering what's so attractive about flying over the
water? I had no aerobatic capability and couldn't do any stupid foamie
tricks yet, I had a great time. I can only blame the environment of flying
over the water. Now I'm wondering what it is that holds so much allure about
it

RISK

It's forbidden territory, if you screw up, in most cases, your airframe may
or may not survive and your electronics will never be trustworthy again.

Well actually if you are flying over fresh water. and soak your
electronics in a dielectric oil you can safely recover your gear.
I bought Aerotrend's AeroPlate... saw it at the Wram show they run a
little N gauge train in water at the show.

As for what makes it aluring... I would guessthe risk of losing it in
the water...

RE: flying over water (off topic)

When I do go slope flying, it is almost always over water - the Pacific
Ocean. My favorite spots to fly are Kahakuloa and Kapuna. If there was a
problem, most of the time the wind will blow the plane back toward the slope
and the plane will not end up in the water...but smack against the rocky
face of the slope <grin>

Aloha to all on RCSE.

Re: flying over water (off topic)

I was flying a foam Corsair off a slope over Lake Erie. In this case, it
was looking down at the Corsair, seeing it against the waves, (and
occasionally humming the theme to Black Sheep Squadron). It just about made
the hair on my neck stand up.

"Riceball, is that you?"
