Jordan, we came down to water tanks and there was nothing. We ended up farting around over by the VW dealership (flag pole).

Lilly was looking pretty good. I need to get checked out there! I had my new to me Samurai, Typhoon, Fox and wing and only got to fly my low lift wing today.

Big Monday


Big West winds predicted for this afternoon. 20+ predicted by some weather sites. I'll be at Lilly Shapell around 2 or 3 with my Spider 60. Come on out!!!

Slightly windy at my office in San Clemente. Probably good depending on direction.

Why did I not load the Kawasaki into my truck his morning! I have a KA-6 in the backseat, but it may be a bit windy for those flexy wings.

Today was great up at Salvador. 15-20mph had some good combat with a great crowd. Although I'm pretty bummed, my Gulp had a servo quit right at the top of a stall turn !! It dove straight down from about 30ft and hit the concrete dead-on and bounced about 8 ft high. I'm soo glad I put those extra coats of goop on the fuse, it came out unscathed. But I had to take it all apart to find the source of the issue , which was a burnt out HS-82MG . I'm gonna clean it off and send it into Hitec.

What really ticks me off, is that the servo is only a couple months old, and was working just fine before I tossed it. I'm just glad it didn't fly into a house or wayy down the hill...

By the time I got to Lilly's this afternoon it was not that good. It seemed to be coming from a couple different directions. I flew the M60 loaded and had fun for a few minutes but nothing like predicted. Keith and Lars came down, so Keith got checked off today. : )There were times where it just shut off.
I bet it was real nice about 11:00 or 12:00 today.
