What's going on...


Should be best part of the flying season, but weather has been mainly lousy (= totally too windy). We really have to take advantage of all possible flying slots to get some flight time.

I also finished my scratchbuild Ki-61 Tony. It turned out somewhat better than I dared to hope for. If interested, read my build log.

Then I ripped my HK Slick 360's motor mount in knife edge spin. I've been flying this plane hard, but still this was quite a surprise to me. Dead stick landing was perfect, but I've got plenty of repairing and it will take a while. More details at Slick 360 thread.

Meanwhile I purchased Extreme Flight 48" Yak-54 EXP to replace Slick. It's all ready now and trimming flights ongoing... Still not as well trimmed / setup as the Slick was. The kit itself seems to be very well made and of high quality.
