4 packs on the oxy 2 at lunch during work.

Then decent after work flying day. Was a 600 kind of evening . 4 packs worth so around 50 mins and no crash! Few bug bites

And it was supposed to be rainy! All good.

Something tells me you've tried it before. Steve, I believe I found your channel.
High Voltage With High Current (7 min 44 sec)


No flying here, Lads.
Ps- I think Dad secretly repented because no rain here. It tried to rain yesterday, but couldn't.

Freakin' monsoon rain on the way to work this morning plus my afternoon yesterday got cut short with storms. I hope this afternoon is drier. I blame Vik. I think he did some kind of reverse rain dance/mojo/spell etc. to cause the weather to change so fast. Or maybe the Yadtech weather control machine has been perfected ?

Dad, in addition to Vik's dance, our engineer managed to perfect the weather machine. We managed to send the monsoon rain back that way.

Decent, no crashes no malfunctions, although too windy to have a really good time with the 130Xs.

Beautiful flying day here after a day of mostly rain yesterday. I got the lawn mowed early. Later we pick up my first wife's new(used) car. At last she will stop driving mine and leaving stuff how I don't like it.

I was able to send a virus to the Yadtech weather control machine. I'll see how long until they find a way to purge it

At last, the perfect summer evening arrived - breathless conditions, sunny skies and best of all...... the longest day of the year! Just back from a three hour session of good solid flying - if only every day was like this. Finished off of course, with a long cold beer

Tomorrow or today actually as I am typing at 1:19am should be good too. We managed to catch Dad's virus before it could infect our weather control machine .

What weather site is that Denis? I like the layout - much better than the current Met Office one I use.

It looks like another good flying day (and no chores !). Winds are supposed to stay under 15 mph with partly to mostly cloudy skies. High temp near 80F. Yay !!

In Bristol you are not allowed to fly a big RC model aircraft in any council field except only 3 parks in the whole of Bristol! And you have to have BMFA insurance as well to fly in those parks. I do have BMFA insurance but I can't be asked to fly in Bristol as I have been to one of those parks with a 550 and people were just walking under the heli without a care in the world. And this is inside the designated area for RC flying.

We've got relatives over in Colwyn Bay so we travel to Wales quite often - you are right, there are some great isolated flying spots although the winds on the West coast can be a bit iffy and unpredictable. We are lucky here in Lincolnshire too - plenty of open spaces as it is quite rural.
