I got the old servo out and I'm ready to pit new back in.

Thx.
I wrapped mine in electrical tape and used epoxy under it and
around the edges, just going up the sides a bit, so it has a pot to sit in.

PS, we missed you today Colby!!!!! Are you going to make it to the contest next week??????

Thx.
If you have made a mess of the servo area, you could try Gorilla Glue as it expands, is light weight, and strong. But MAKE SURE you wrap servo in painters or masking tape prior to putting her in.

We missed you today Colby. Can you make it to next weeks contest????



PS, even with a quad core and a bucket of memory, editing HD video kills a machine!!!!!

So far soo good on the first draft though.

Yup, it was tougher conditions than it looked like. Sun was shining most of the time, about 60 degrees, variable and gusty wind. Started out really lifty for the first half of the window, and I hit the 3:00 rung before the half way mark. Then the bottom fell out of the sky! Killer sink cycle that lasted for a LONG TIME. I scored only one more flight in the whole second half of the window. Had a great time though!

Heading out of town next weekend Jon. Had to work today. I'll be working Saturdays for probably several months, so I'll probably miss most fun stuff.

OK, here are the final scores for the 2011 GMo fundraiser monster ladder task. Thanks to all that participated. It was a blast!

If you haven't done so already, please make a donation to the fund HERE (instructions in 1st post).

Hope to see you all out for the JunC fundraiser task, and our April monthly mini contest next Saturday at the Vinyard sod farm in Orem, following the Uncivil War, approximately 1:00 PM

I made up a from for the JUNbalaya task if you think it will help. The JPG came out kind'a screwed up but I have it in a word document.


Based on my first DLG experience yesterday, I am going to have a problem hitting one minute. And the video you showed of the guys trying to catch the plane... Those guys were goood!
Since I may have a problem hitting 1 min I made up a task for me to worm up for the JUNbalya called the 10x30s

Jim, you did very well for your first time flying DLG! I am pleased you took her home in one piece and can now start racking up the hours of experience that will get your flights past that illusive minute. It can feel like a long time!

It was great fun flying yesterday. I am really liking the B3.

Thanks to Mike again for bringing his PA system... and to all that joined us at the field for some of the best flying this year yet. I got to 1000 feet and did 2:30 on the ladder. Still a long way to go!
