Got some stick time today.


Went to the bike shop, moved the bikes to one end of
the show room floor and flew the Uber. Three batteries.

Way too windy outside for even large models.

I was hoping to fly today but we had winds around 30.
I'd love to do some indoor, but don't know of a place around Kearney.

I did went fly my champ today and run two batteries. We don't have much wind in winter here so that is pretty easy and relax flying. ofcourse come home with ten frozen fingers.

Went flying in 25-30mph and had a ball! Owning and knowing how to fly slope gliders sure helps.

Weather in GA was PERFECT today. Not a cloud in the sky, just a hint of wind and temps in the 50s!

Flew my new Grayson Hobby Sukoi 3D foamie until I got tired of flying.

Flew my new (to me) Great Planes Electra Streak WOT for the first time today. It was hauling ash!

That IS an impressive looking model.
When I was in high school and early college back in the 1970's, I flew stuff like that on TeeDee .049 and .051's

At my age now... I just don't need poop in my pants so I fly stuff about 1/2 that speed.

I flew my small Sniper yesterday in 15 mph wind. Flew and landed OK, but after the second landing, the wind took the plane and sent it tumbling across the muddy field before I could catch it. Tore the rudder hinge. And I have to get lots of dried mud off an EPP plane.
