Covid-19 Cabin Fever, what to do?


With this horrible Virus, bad weather and many people staying home, I am going through "no flying" withdrawal symptom (NFWS ). I checked stupid "Siri" and it said there are no "RC Psychological" clinics in my area...Soooooo, what to do??

Can't run engines outside and make noises to bother my neighbors due to rain and winds. So I started assembling two new ARF's and upgrading an old Pattern ship with a newly rebuilt YS 140...

I also rebuilt two Really old Rossi's 40 and 45...

I'll post pix later if you guys interested...

Still feeling the NFWS....LOL

What about you? are you as sick as I?

It's going to be gorgeous on Friday and I'm off work. There is about as good a chance of Elvis showing up at our flying field as there is another guy flying. If Elvis does show, We'll take a selfie and I'll post it here.

In the meantime, I have two clunker planes I just picked up at a swap meet to get ready to fly, a sukhoi that needs bodywork and paint, an SE5A that is barely in the bones, and about 100 other airplanes to build beyond that.

So, no sickness here.

I went flying today. The County park where our flying field is, is open but I don't know for how long. Just about all the parks and beaches in this area are closed. State parks, closed, no camping etc.

I would most definitely make a canopy or something and bother those neighbours! Next best thing after an RC Psychiatrist

Is that the UpRoar V2? You will have to use a large prop with fine pitch. The fun fly type plane does not like to fly fast. Everything will flutter.

I have flown every day for the last 10 days here in Southern California, and we have a stay at home order in place. I will continue to fly as long as they keep the access gate open to the flight field.

Sunlight (UV radiation) kills virus so going outside on a sunny day is actually better than staying indoors as long as you keep a safe distance from others. Doctors know that but I don't think politicians realize that fact.
