Wind was too bouncy to try anything fancy - at times I could keep the plane bouncing around with no forward motion without even going into a harrier! Got the plane down safely each time too, which I felt pretty good about.

OK, so, the new experience. I'd just managed to get the plane down and stopped, when the wind picked up just enough more that the plane actually took off when it was just sitting there! Went up a couple feet, rolled over, and settled into the weeds beside the runway upside down. I wasn't ready for that! No damage. I think I need a heavier plane

Had a great time at the Big Jolt electric festival on Saturday. The event was loaded with warbirds and jets but we managed some 3D between the seemingly endless low passes! The pilot that crashed the big jet was flirting with that fence all day during take offs, a little rudder would've saved alot of money!

RC

I didn't take the flight pics (cuz I was flying!!) , I got them from the Big Jolt thread. Thanks to whoever took them

Edge is in good condition. It has met the ground a couple of times and has two repair spots with welders. Looks new.
