I am PO'd. Was hovering my yak55 in the garage, because it is WAY too windy outside, and I accidentally flew out of the garage, so the wind blew the plane into a neighbors yard. they are not home right now, so I would just go back there and get it, but he has dog's the size of bears, and twice as mean. so, I have to wait till they get home from work. but the part that PO's me is that my battery will most likely be ruined.

If the prop is not ruined and its facing out of the tree go full power.

Where did you hear that it was in a tree? I didn't say anything about a tree. the plane itself is fine, it's just the F'in battery I am PO'd about.

This coming Saturday, the gang known as the "Southside Slum" plan to tag the runway, so I was hoping while I was busy with this, someone else could run this other project:

I was able to talk my old employer into parting with two 20' flag poles from the project that I used to run that closed out (Earmarked for pylon racing poles). If I was to bring the appropriate tools to do this, I was hoping that someone(s) would volunteer to handle digging in a 1' long piece of 2" ABS sewer pipe at each of the pylon pole locations.

Thanks,
--Jim

Seth just tell the dog to "fetch." Sorry I was hoping this might make you feel better.
