Wish I could get down there. Probably won't be back up and flying for another week though. Then I'll be studying for finals. Might get a day of flying in between though.

Philip, did you get that steal of a deal Mach 1 yet? That thing looks sexy. Saw your post in the fs/w forums.

Yes I did. Maiden was on Monday and have been flying the out of it since. The poor thing was cooped up in a box for years. Monday was "off the hook" today was very good.

Thanks to the San Diego Sloper Dudes

Had a great time flying at Dave's beach.....

I apologize to the guy whose car I managed to bounce my easy star off of. However it did make for a spectacular landing.

Also to the general public for scaring the local motorist while trying to land in that rotor.

Oranator....thanks for your help with directions.

Went over to Torrey Pines afterwards.....but I guess it takes a while to get used to flying with all those hangliders. Given my history of bouncing my ships off of various objects.....I thought I would spare the hangliders.

Anyone want to fly the Santa Barbara area.....give me a call, or send me a pm.

Thanks again......Herb

Why Why ohhh why

I've tried to be low key about this, but I am going nuts!

Last time I really sloped was last Thanksgiving at Parker . Then work took over, then work around the house took over, then work again.....

So, just as the schedule was clearing out...

I sever, completely blew out no longer attached, my right achilles tendon. This was back on May 9, and I am still in a cast and on crutches. I had surgery on the 16th, the doc stiched the tendon back together.

Note, my backyard is great for seeing what the wind is doing, and it seems to me that the wind has been good. I think I am going to fix my Weasel and try DSing my fence...

I am going KooKoo I swear!

So, I do want to fly, but it won't be happening until August.

Until then, I have purchased some books on cnc and cam, and will be educating myself. Oh, I will have time to work on ALL of my blown out servos too!

Later

Terry
