The other four planes flew just fine other than a pretty sketchy landing on my new P-38. Here's video:

I enjoy the video as always! It's almost hard to believe I flew there just some months ago?

I'm gutted for you in reference to the P51 however did you happen to have on board for it?

next flight I will see if it will take off from it’s hardened belly, underside of fuselage and wings are coated in marine epoxy with fiberglass cloth.
Wind is 18 now, expecting 45 later today. Going to be dirty air, turbulent with rotors.

I sue did! I make sure that I watch the weather closer than even a Brit! It's an occupational hazard being a marine officer for some 30 years.

I only really pay attention to this thread and I subscribe to everyone's YT channel who posts here. And I watch each of their videos. I don't expect normal people to watch mine because I have the time and my son is 31 years old. Is just me and momma. My use for YT is for archival purposes and the 30 some odd folk who take leave of their senses and watch mine. It makes me happy to see what you Yo-Yos are doing out there!

I like the old school wing attachment. That brings back memories.

I tried to find a pic of me with my trainer .40 that I built while in training in the 80's but came up short. It was very similar and about the last time I have "built" anything vice "assembling" it.

It a rainy day here.

Hey the n ew one is out.....

Insta 360 ONE X2

https://store.insta360.com/product/one_x2

It looks like it has a screen big enough for these old eyes to read. My only major gripe about my Insta 360 ONE X is that I have to put on my glasses to read the mode screen.

Soooooo, RB has first rights of refusal, but if anybody wants a " Insta 360 ONE X" for 50% off the purchase price, just give me a hollar. (paid $399.99)

I have many extras, as in a shite load but they may b e compatible with the new camera so I will have to wait. If they aren't compatible then they can be had for little more than a song.

Fun pics and many output options with the same image. 2 examples with my friends visited recently when out for Elk.

Ask RB how he likes his Mavic thingie.......

I LOVE my Mavic thingy but will regrettably pass on the generous offer!

Someone snatch it up!

For a weak hurricane it sure is spreading high winds over a large area. 40 mph here in West Tennessee today also.

Good plan!

In my geographic area we took some high winds and there were some traffic lights out as I went out and about this morning. But we are good at the 1500 foot level where I was staying last week @3400 feet they got 80 miles per hour gusts!

In NY it's rain all day today and into tomorrow. Not much wind so far... I guess we are kind of on the outskirts of a large area.
