Sally likes the cold!


Fired up Sally today! Flew the Alula for about a 1/2 hour, then Sally. I flew for about 20 minutes, then landed and added a penny to the nose. Big difference and I think she's pretty well dialed in now, as far as the CG goes. Flew for about another half hour. together with an Osprey and a couple of hawks. NICE way to spend a Saturday afternoon in January!!

Temp: 15 degrees F (-9C)
Wind: NW 10-16 knots
Fun level: High!

Well done Jim!

The Flying Beagle had his day!
The bumble bee flew great considering the wind was 60km/h+
As Daron says...
"It's like flying a paper plate in a gale!"

I'll ask Brad for some pics as I never took any!

Oh...
Sorry I took your Crossover out....

Nothing wrong with your latest "slope activity"!
She's looking good FB!

I think those servo covers will work well!
Last of an era....

Never mind, the next project is cooking!

Your question was on the PE thread, I thought I'd answer on the Sally thread

My "stock Sally" ended up being 270 gm.

Zally looks great, Jim. Hope the barbed wire helps keep the rascals away!

I don't know how you guys got to those weights!

It has to be our fuz... a bit tail heavy!

I must say, that the 900mm Zally wing likes to be loaded up and even at 550g (our heaviest one) flew like a rocket..
Anyway.. Back to FB..

"Barbie" had her day out!
400g plane in 60km/h wind!

FB has taken to slope soaring like Barbie is to Bay Watch!

Well done and thanks to Brad for the pics!
