More Combat Please!

Well my flying skills are a bit lacking these days. I've only flown my regular fleet twice in the past year, so I'm a bit rusty. 99% of my time has been FPV this year.

We really need to get getting a couple of the performance guys with giant scale fuel planes out to this event.

Were any of you guys at Grantsville? I got video of a turbine powered A10. Very cool and worth the drive just to see that... let alone the perfect weather and great flying experience.

I woke up with a violent headache Saturday and was grounded... to my bed... for half the day. By the time I felt good enough to go outside, it was afternoon and wouldn't have been worth the time to drive out there. I was bummed.

I'm sure it was fun, it always is.

This is from the 18th. Much better landing than last Saturday!

I'm really glad you posted that. Much better footage than I got! That was a blast seeing that fly.

So was there much damage to the nose gear Saturday? I didn't have a chance to talk to you after your flight.

It didn't hurt the nose gear. The big issue is that it keeps rotating on some set screws on the mains which is causing them to kick sideways a bit and skid to a stop. Oh well another challenge!

I love the video! That was such a fun day. I am going through the gear on the A10 so hopefully it won't kick out again. The second flight of the day went alot smoother.
Thanks for posting that!
