Hello,

We haven't been able to fly for the last 3 weeks because of the President being in town for three weekends in a row, I hope he's not going to make a habit out of this or we will need a new place to fly. This sucks big time, so we wont have any blog updates until I can go up and fly. Wish us luck!

Hello everyone,

I wanted to wish everyone a happy holidays this year! We had some changes this year that changed the club quite a bit, and we are still missing a couple of regulars and I hope Dan gets better soon so he can get back to flying, and bring Ed with him too, I'm sure they both miss the flying. I hope the new year coming will bring good things for everyone. Here's a few pictures from a couple of weeks ago.

Hello everyone,

We had a good breeze out of the NW at around 12 MPH, but the lift wasn't really there, but we were able to pull a few flights out of it, and getting some thermals from the heat stacks on the factory stacks. Every day flying is a good day I always say.

Enjoy,...Continue Reading

Hello all,

This weekend wasn't very good conditions, but I had to get my beloved Falco back in the air, so I finally finished building the new wing for it and got to fly it, and it did great! I'm very happy with the Falco, I didn't just buy the replacement wing, I bought a whole kit, now Larry says that Arthobby will now offer live hinges with all their planes, so now I have to buy another one. Oh darn

Hello everyone,

Here's a slide show of a bunch of pictures I took of several different birds in flight, and some great acoustic guitar music by Luca Stricagnoli, check him out on Youtube . This link is to my Facebook page, click on the video called Birds in Flight, and select HD on the video setting for a high def version if you're going to watch it full screen.

Hello all,

We have been having some light weekends, so the flying has been light as well. I didn't take that many shots, and my cameras settings were off, so I lost some of the pictures. I know not to do that but sometimes I forget. But here's a few pics I could save

Hello all,

This was a really good day for flying, as you can see by the amount of pictures of people launching their planes. We had a lot of fun and the wind kinda countered the heat (a little).

Hello all,

We got rained out for the most part, but a few people got some flying in before the grey skies took over. John was flying his newly built plane (Sorry John, couldn't remember the name of it) which I took pictures of when he first built and flew his maiden flight with her, but I lost all the pictures as I didn't have the camera set properly and didn't realize it until after I got home and checked the pictures. I learned a good lesson from that. Always check your camera settings even during and before shooting and I started using the histogram on previews, it helps to see the exposure when the LCD screen is hard to see outdoors. I think this week will be much better, but a little hotter than last week.

Have fun, see ya Saturday! ...Continue Reading
