How to have fun with your MM Cessna when it's too windy to fly

Hi gang!

We went out this morning in search of a dead calm body of water to try some ROW'ing with the Cessna on 8 cells and the Switchback on floats, but the only thing we found was "too breezy to do test flight" conditions at a few lakes. However, I couldn't pass up the scenery or the photo opportunity, so here are a few shots we took while out there.

... and another. I love these "on the water" shots. I can almost hear the 6 inch pilot yelling "CLEAR!!!" out the window

I heard it

Hey Dreamer, what tail wheel do I need to look like yours? Does it fit the wire and connections that come with the kit?

Nice Pictures.

The tail wheel, if I recall, is a Sullivan 3/4" wheel, but as far as I know they're not available any more. It fit the kit wire perfectly. These came two to a package, so it matches the one on the top of the fin of my switchback

Beeeeee-youtiful!

I absolutely love that first photo posted! Almost enough to make you blush . . .

When do you post your camera, film, f-stops, shutter-speed, and OH, wait this is the DIGITAL era . . .

Keep 'em comin' Dreamer!

Cheesy, most every pic you'll see me post from now on was taken on my Aiptek Mega Cam. Simple and effective!
