You guys have done a wonderful thing

My favorite shaper Tyler did the same thing with a surfboard. They made a film about its travels. Single fin yellow. Great movie.
I would like to see it fly.
Can you tell me where you will be on sat. Around 4:30??
Thanks
Rubio
Rubio, you need to fly it!

It was cool to read the log book in the box, seeing where it went and who's flown it. Let's see how many So. Cal. slopes it can fly, before we send it off.

Flight report,
I charged the DOM and it took about 300 ma. I got to Kite Hill,(named after the hovering birds that live there) assembled the DOM and installed an "orange" spectrum receiver and programmed the radio. The Dude tossed it out for me and the DOM flew at Kite. The cg seems ok, but one servo seems faster than the other. I need to review the recommended throws and do some more tuning to get it dialed for the weekend. There appears to be a lost model alarm that beeps periodically and emits three short beeps if power is lost from the transmitter. Is that how it's supposed to be? I didn't have much time for sloping today. More to come.

Hey, Zipper, just some info for planning where the DOM goes, remember it's supposed to end up here with me in Idaho in August. I'll take it to Soar Utah Aug. 31st - Sep. 3rd, then I'm heading directly to Southern California for family vacation. We will be returning to Idaho via San Francisco and Reno, Nevada. We'll be at the Reno Air Races Sep. 14th. I could hand deliver it to anyone along that route if you'd like to plan it that way. There will be a ton of options for a hand-off at Soar Utah.
