Decided to make a battery pack for my trailer and a portable battery pack for my flight box. The trailer battery is 6,4s x 10 18650 Tesla batteries rated at 3000mah. A whopping 72,000 mah running my trailer. 300 watt inverter to keep my planes trickling. 100 watt solar system keeps the battery pack charged.

I put 2 dogfighter wings together,modified a duraplane tail,cut a 5x4 fence post,threw it all together with a Honda GX 32 four stroke. It flew pretty good. Lost a wheel after takeoff. The landing,she'll let's say I stuck it. Cut out a new fuse. Just waiting for the wind to die down. Hopefully I can fly it at our last/first fly in next week.

I don't get out to the flats by Woodruff AZ too often but when I do I enjoy the company of like minds. EL Falcone and Buddy are usually there.

Almost 2 years ago I decided to make the move out of the Midwest to what seemed like the other side of the world. Packed up the family and all my planes,crossed the country and settled in to a small mountain town in Arizona. I knew no one,didn't even know if there was a flying sight let alone a club. Took me over a year to locate like minded people. Enjoying the people here. I almost have my shop done. I have a 1000 ft runway (sand &dirt) to fly off. I habe since found other flying sites locally and other pilots. Its a new chapter in my life. All the cars in my previous blog entries are gone. I traded a life in a small city in Indiana for an off grid ranch in the White Mountains of Az where we raise goats and micro pigs.
I've come a long way since 2015 when my surgeon told me I may never walk again. Took me a few years to learn how to walk. Had to sell my cars to pay the bills. That is all behind me now. Bought an ultralight and now learning to fly.
