Good news sorta, found one and a quarter servos and the bottom case of Rx.
And right side wing connector and magnet.
Notice the guts(circuit board and pot) from the pulverized servo
Rx board is still Mia, it's toast! Lol

Hey Mike,

Are you up there now?(2pm.) How's the conditions... not sure if I can get away to head up there, but might decide to "drop everything" and head up if conditions are good. I've never been up to the Slot before... could be a good day to break it in!

Thanks, and cheers!

Rob
P.S. good find, by the way...

Just seen this today. That was my 1st day at the slot with the FS3, I need to find the right kind of turn on base B to keep speed up. Plane is alot faster then my NYX but in the bumps my NYX still holds on better.

Went to Davenport Today with both planes full load on both planes today 20+ NW flew from 10am till 3:30pm I think I have my starts down for this years ISR.

Sweet Tim!
I was at the Slot today from 830 till 11am this morning. Got some more practice in on the speedo and F3F. 20 to 25, slightly bumpy and thermally.
I'm happy!
I wanted to go to the coast, but had honeydoos this afternoon

Tomorrow is supposed to be honking!!

Steve and I met at the Slot at 4:00. It was howling around 40 mph. Just before I got ready to launch Steve's first flight we felt it get stronger. Just after I launched him I check with my meter, 50 steady with a gust to 58! Crazy. I had the old Ceres wound up faster than I've ever seen it go. I flew once, Steve twice and we decided it was better to go home with both planes in one piece...

What's ISR? I've met the Inland Slope Rebels at the PSS fest. Are they hosting the event you guys are preparing for?
I'm interested to check out a race event sometime, if not at the slot, wherever an event is held in the Bay Area.

Tick Point, the ISR is MOM 3 planes in the air at a time held once a year down in Davenport just north of Santa Cruz.

We are racing F3F at the Slot this Sunday if you want to come race or spectate. First time racers fly for free, AMA mandatory.
