This evening, I finally got a chance to fly a bit. It's been almost two weeks since I last flew due to work, events, and high winds and bad weather. Tonight, the conditions were perfect so I took my Corsair and Spitfire out for a flight each. Duration was only 6 minutes for each flight, and I could have flown for a lot longer with more batteries, but I didn't want to push my wife's patience as I was using her as a spotter to warn me of any cars advancing while I landed on the road in front of our house.

There was no wind, and with the cooler air, the planes flew as if on rails. My normally tame Corsair flew as if it had a larger motor, and the Spitfire jumped through the air as if it had a supercharger. Landings with each plane were greasers, and elicited nice comments from my daughter and my wife. All in all, it was a really nice evening of flying that I hope I can do again tomorrow night.
