Then I lower it through the limbs of the tree (praying heavily) to the roof of my shop. Climb on the roof and retrieve my plane. I need to go to the ball field for now on. Wife was trying not to laugh , but some time you can't help it.
Ah yes the memories.... 40 foot up an elm... I am not liking trees, they make good firewood.

We are in Basement Bathroom Build Mode.... Sizing up the spot for the Garden tube, got the Tube Faucet / shower things ordered today.

Seems you need to get the big tube in place, built, plumbed, tested before you can do anything else in the bathroom.
Wow, that's going 2B a fine Man Cave with da Roman faucet and hand held shower. You will need a lot of room when you build the Telemaster.

Hey Kid, on the way to the ball field stop and buy a lottery ticket. With the luck you're having (with that rescue) you will win. You're good with that fishing rod!

It was pure luck. I thought I was going to have to kiss that plane goodbye.

I'm getting better with my Yak. Only had to get it off the roof today. Wife asked did I not learn yesterday about flying in the backyard.

She keeps on top of matters from what I can tell.

Now if you can focus on "harrier" flight, you wont need to even be roof top high. That is my trick for flying indoors... If you are about to get into trouble, bust into a hovers, then high alpha your way around the problem.

Not yet.... My new magnifier lamp came in so I have a better chance at seeing the finer things again. You dont know how much you require something until it is broken.

It needs all the little things done to finish it up.

Cute - but I think a spoon would have been a bit better.

If that kid were me, I would see how this thing flies

But, Airspoonone - not a good selling point.

I was never allowed to run with scissors either
