I decided the weather was not good enough to warrant the half hour drive. Sunday looks worse. Cold, windy and some rain in the morning. Airnet always forecast much lower winds for Somerset than Essex where I live. Then when I get to the field they are consistently wrong. They always underestimate wind speed.

LOL..

I have both of the motors sitting at my house just wanted to be flown

Now thats what I'd like to see! If it can stand up to a 600 watt motor, I'll have nothing to worry about with my 300 watter. I wonder how this one would stand up to a 70mph snap roll?
