Hey guys, don't know why but the build thread is not working. It won't let me post anything. Says it's closed.

I noticed that the build thread is locked. Since Sean started it I sent him a text and asked him to unlock it. He tried and can't get back into it so maybe Jim could start a new build thread?

Hello fellow RC fliers,

Note: I am Scott Wise the kind-of-new-guy in the club. I hope my user name isn't too hard to remember.

Well, . . . I was wondering why I wasn't getting any email about the Savona Gym Fly-In tomorrow then remembered the last email I did get. It said something about joining up somewhere (here) and using it as a club communications channel. Well, I found the email, followed the links and here I am! Amazing! lol

Since our last get together (to which I arrived very late because nothing I have, that flies, was working) I have gotten a couple new battery packs. One for my "copter" and the other for my (not really indoor) ParkZone (J3) Cub.

I also solved a battery plug problem with the receiver in my Gentle Lady. So, I should be able to fly something tomorrow. Perhaps I'll even try towing up my Gentle Lady with my RC Hummer.

I thought the indoor fly was a great success, we'll do it again next season Nov-Apr, looks we'll have about $250 for an aviation scholarship, the guidance counselor Matt Burns sent me some paperwork to fill out, and the principal Lisa Hawkin said they had some seniors interested in an aviation career.

I'm headed up to the field today around 1p forecast mostly cloudy, highs mid 70's sw winds 15-20 w gusts to 30 should be interesting.

Getting your posts.


I don't know about the rest of the club, but I get a email reminder every time
someone posts to this thread. I know I have been a spoil sport, about showing up, but I just don't have the spare cash for it. Sorry.

Well, sounds like I have been missing a lot of excitement at the field. I probably can't make it up there until the sunday after Mothers Day. Going to try some slope soaring next week at OBX, NC. Any tips, anyone?
Saunder.
