Thread OP

spring is here!-or isnt?

another day at the park. it is beginning to look a lot like spring-the way it used to be. several years of hell didnt let me enjoy these quick jumps into heaven, but today looked at the window and packed my things and away i went. no time for breakfast, because wind could start at any time. flew 1 of my designs-now testing the lemon plus receiver. it is a 36" span stick and tissue (Elf 36") that weighs 225 grams and has folding prop-sort of sailplane with landing gear. take-off from the street when there were no cars around-now they opened the street so there is way more traffic. but had to land on the grass-too many cars at the moment. anyway, it was a pleasure flying this plane again. and the plus made it fly way more stable, as there was some turbulence.i also flew 1 of my umx radians that does not have gyros. flew fine even with turbulence. heaven!
and i hope this year does not run as windy as the recent 1s.

an update: at least at the time i wrote this, it seemed as spring was here. but now am beginning to think that perhaps i was speaking too soon...
