AP Sorties over TCRC Flying Field, Jordan, MN


Here are some pics from my two AP sorties today over the TCRC Flying Field in Jordan, MN.

We were having an event at the field so there were quite a few of the club members out. The temp was about 15 F, partly cloudy, with very little wind.

This first shot is directly toward the north looking across the Minnesota River.

I think I can see a Yeti in the woods in the first picture.

Great pictures, but I had to get my coat to look at them.

Its always amazed me that all of us will fly in the most extreme weather. 15 degrees is extreme to me.

Thanks for sharing.

This shot was taken as I was coming in for a landing. It is looking roughly to the South/Southwest. I am one of the two people standing at the end of the fence. The group of people next to the sheltler are all standing around a fire trying to keep warm.

Before I moved to Minnesota 8 years ago, 15 degrees F was cold to me too. Now it seems like a warm, balmy day if you dress for it and the sun is shining. If the sun isn't shining and the wind is blowing, it is COLD any way you slice it.

I'm glad you liked the pictures.

You have a very nice Club Field there. Lots of room. What where you using for a cam if you don't mind me asking.

The camera is a Canon A310 3.2MP with servo shutter release. Plane is a Slow Stick. Motor is a HiMaxx Outrunner 2808-980 spinning a APC 9X4.7 slow flyer prop. ESP is a Castle Creations Phoenix 25, and battery is Kokam 3S 1500Mah.

This combination is a bit underpowered for AP duty in comparison to what others report with motors like the PJS 800e, although it will fly.
