Long weekend, and nothing over 8 knots

The forecast for the long weekend is bloody fantastic: frosty but clear mornings, maximum temps in the mid-teens, but more importantly, only light winds.

This creates heaps of opportunities and also problems.

There are opportunities to dust off and fly every airworthy model over the three days, and at least 6 flying sessions (solo after dawn, then with the SHMAC blokes each afternoon). The problems begin with the flying order, and which models to take out when.

The wife's VZ Commodore wagon can comfortably hold my flying gear, lipos and 3 nitros and one foamie, or 2 big foamies and one nitro, or 5 foamies, or 4 nitros.

See my problem?

Saturday dawn might be: HK SE5a, FMS Corsair, FMS P-51, low wing trainer.

Saturday afternoon (maybe): Cub 4-stroke, Eagle nitro trainer, FMS Corsair again, Extra 300L electric.

Not even thinking about Sunday and Monday yet!

Maybe it would have been easier to go the June races instead...
