I cannot believe it is already November. I think I say that every month.

Posted this in the swap meet thread but thought I was post here to.

Mark form Winder Hobby will be at the swap meet with stacks of new left over products after closing, I am talking about good stuff. Radios servos, Motors kits and most anything you can think of, Say's he going to be there to sell not play so might be some good deals.

well, i picked up a range extender antenna for the wireless camera.
Should be a LOT better than the original, time will tell though.

Saturday should be the better day as the high will be right over us, but the airspors thing says it will slowly build all day to 8mph.. of course, that is what was forecast for the fly-in so i guess 'grain of salt' applies..
Sunday is forecast for less breeze, but the center of the high should be east of us and the prevailing breeze will be out of the south-south-west.. 6mph tops forecast.

ahh well i guess we'll see...

It actually wasn't that bad today, wasn't perfect either.
I really thought I lost my Spectra sailplane. I had it pretty high where It was fading in and out of sight. I tried to make a sweeping turn when the plane wasn't responding to any of my commands,,,then I figured out I was trying to fly a jet at 30,000 feet . It took me a little while to find it in the sky, luckily I did find it and brought it back,,,

hehe yeah the sailplanes did well today.

Jay came and flew his new Art Hobby Ibis 3 meter.. Sweet and smooth flyer!
Eric's flight was at least a half hour on a single climb.
I flew the Ascent for as long as i wanted to, probably 20 minutes on the one climb, and had to horse it back down.

I ripped the gear off the Banchee again, but as always it was my fault.
Never trust the wind to hold your model up..
standard gear fix though, i'll hopefully have it back in the air tomorrow.

And of course, the Microjet started flying pretty smooth right after i bent the nose and got it all dirty!

Probably try to get up again tomorrow.

After a couple hours last night I got the fuse completed and sanded and got the wings almost done. Don't know if I will be out tomorrow, I may stay home and finish the Edge. Couple questions, what are the best colors as far as being easy to see in the air? Also, I am thinking about using Ultracote/Oracover for the Edge instead of Solarfilm because there are more colors to choose from. I just wonder if Ultracote will add too much weight, thoughts?
