May 18, 2013 Club Fly-In


We had a light turnout for today's fly-in which might have been due to the late announcement. Members at the field today were Ruben, Pat, Ross and Marc. Club friend Lee also showed up.

The weather started out very nice but the winds got gusty and variable as the morning ticked away. This unfortunately led to a number of unintended ground contacts. As we say in model aviation, every plane has an expiration date. Some of those dates came due today.

Pat's Pietenpol and Pawnee


Pat had some great early morning flights with his Slow-Poke, but a probable radio issue ended its flight today.

The Piper Pawnee was set up for flight, but a lack of spark prevented any taxi or flight testing.

And the pretty little Pietenpol suffered from a wind gust at take-off.

Pat has the perseverance of a monk so it won't be much of a surprise if everything is back in flying condition by next week.

Ross's Edge


Ross is getting the Edge dialed in very nicely. And landings are looking very pretty too.
