Had the day off today and went to AD for some flying around noon time. The place was void of humanity except for some frisbee chuckers, and they stayed out of sight in the trees. The weather was near perfect. The only way it could have been any better was if there had been some other flyers there to share the airspace with.
I just felt the rest of you that had to work today would want to know this.

More Combat Please!

I'm still available during the days, so if you intend on flying Bruce (or anybody else) at AD during the day, be sure to give me a shout or post it on here several hours in advance... or even the night before. I'd love to get out for some combat again while the weather is still good.

Must have just missed you today as Diego and I were there from about 11:00- 12:10. I got 2 maiden flights in, Phase 3 F-16 and 10s Habu 32. Both went well. Second flight of the F-16 I put it into one of the trees on final as I bled too much speed off on the final turn and stalled it, it broke the nose off but has already been repaired and is ready to go again. I'm not planning on flying tomorrow as I'm going skiing but I will for sure over the rest of the weekend!

My 2 planes from today:
Habu 32 10s Jetfan 80 (2 min 53 sec)

Phase 3 F-16 5s 2nd Flight (2 min 49 sec)

And Diegos F-16:
Diego's LX F-16 (0 min 0 sec)

Watch your 6

BC - I was in the area about that time. I wish I had known you were at AD I would have dropped by. I didn't have my planes with me though.

I have my grand kids (8, 11, 14) building an Albatross. After about an hour I found myself building the plane as their attention span max out. All we got done was the wing. I will try again Friday and see how far we get.

Aaron - fun videos. All you need now is a set of those goggles those FPV guys use to get a read back on your air speed.

I want to shoot a night flying video with Albatross and Storm Chasers and Pelicans. If you have lights on any of these planes or want to put lights on one of them and come fly with us please post. It will depend on the wind in the evening but the advantage of night flying this time of year is it is dark at 6PM.

I also am hoping to shoot videos of the wings with lights and a little night combat so get those planes ready too.

Hobby King has all the lights in stock again. They have not been in stock for weeks so now may be a good time to stock up. Don't get the water proof light for the lightweight planes. They are heavy and harder to install.

Sounds like fun Lee. I'll try to come down if I can when you announce a time and place. I need more practice at night with the Albatross.

I am hoping for doing it several times in the next few days then editing the videos together. I want to put aerial video mixed in with the ground video.
