Sunday 5/14/2006 Rainy day
No flying today due to weather, so I went to Lowes and bought a wheeled portable toolbox for all my stuff.
It's pretty big, lots of room. This thing holds A LOT of stuff.
I also went to Wallyworld and bought some little containers to put different
items in, motors, esc's, servos, batteries, etc...
It keeps things really organized. I'm really a neat freak.
Only problem will be lifting it into my truck, it weighs a ton !
I also picked up some sq stock to beef up another Slow Stick I,m gonna start.
I got lots of spare motors and such, so I'm gonna build another backup plane.
It's raining on and off today so no flying, but I did fly Friday night.
I'm starting to do lots of loops, stall turns, and hovers, but I did try to loop too close to ground and I punched it into the blacktop HARD !!
I completely knocked the center out of the Park 400 I just got last week.
I thought it just snapped the shaft, but when I got home and pulled it apart, I found out it knocked the center out of the bell.
It cracked the 3 metal arms going out from the center shaft. It is junk.
I'm hoping to find someone that yanked their wires loose and have a good bell. Oh well, live and learn. I do know one thing, that plane hauled butt with that motor.
