Float Fly at Murphey-Candler Park


I am going to float fly at Murphey-Candler Park on Friday, September 21st starting at about 10am. I have a new rescue boat that I am going to bring for sea trials. I think Mark Thompson is going to bring his PROVEN rescue airboat too.

Here is the map for Murphey-Candler

Please let me know if you are planning to come. Flying isn't as much fun by myself and I might not go if I am going to be alone !

Thanks

Sounded like he didn't like how it flew?

How long will you all be there?

Usually we fly from 10 until about 2. Never later than 3 so we don't have to contend with Perimeter traffic.

Earliest I could get there would be 4, but hopefully, I'll be at the Triple Tree lake the next Friday.

Friday float fly was a lot of fun. I maidened my new rescue boat. Good news and bad news.

She is slow as molasses in January :-(. Good news is that the FPV system, the recovery arms, and the small parts rescue net all worked as intended. I have to learn something about boat propulsion though. Her twin motors should have given me enough power to move stricken aircraft and in the end she did, but just damn she was sooooooo slow.

If anybody knows anything about boat power systems I sure would appreciate some guidance...
