PS. We don't have have a definite date for our BBQ. Let's agree on a date that's open to all.
Wow I might have to check out that airshow!

As far as the BBQ, it's so close to the end of the semester I may just have to vote for a date later than the week of May 16. Although if that doesn't work for others, I can probably make it out before that.

So if the weather isn't too windy tomorrow, I'll be out by the courthouse. Anyone else up for some flying?

@Sho, Yep lost my 20 year old wanderer. Numerous good flights and all it took was a good crosswind during my downwind leg. Fortunately I managed to retrieve it. I'm working on a similar design now that's almost ready. Rough traced what was left of the wanderer fuse and designed my own wing with "Wingmaster". I'm electrifying it this time. I'll put up the specs and stats in the next few days.

Hey I've flown plenty of time at that soccer field/park before. It's pretty good area.
HighLife, Sorry to hear about your plane.

Wassup with this wind. So I was itching to fly and flew my 450 heli in this crazy wind, man it was hand full once I took it up 30-40ft but I managed to land it. It was such a mission tho lol.

Today was a good day for flying, I got a few in around 12 at Grant Line.

Jay, I guess I missed you, a guy that was there breaking in the engine on an RC truck said you were out there earlier.
