Hello everyone,

I haven't posted in a while, I've been lazy and tired, but I'm feeling better and here's a post from the weekend of the 19th of Nov. I didn't make it to the hill last weekend so this will be the only entry for this week. Hope everyone has fun last Saturday. This post has Toms new plane in it, it flew good and looked even better!

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,

There was not a lot of picture opportunities, but here's a few shots, Jon and I were on the NE bowl flying electrics, and Paul and Mike were winch launching the W side, and a few guys were on the N side. Not much wind to speak of, hope tomorrow is better

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

Sorry, I wasn't feeling good, so my blog is a little late. I also didn't make it to the hill this last week so there won't be an entry next week.

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
