another good day in SD


Lots of "firsts" today in SD. :-)

Rich hit the course with his Enigma, as did Juan. Both came home with all arms, legs and fingers, the group will claim qa major victory!

Kris was there too, with his pristine asia-rusky hybrid bird, posting a solid 54 legs with the new Sergey proped / Neu motored/ Castle controlled/ 90c (?)batt combo. He was very proud, and has obviousely been practicing!!.. to bad team NZ won't be having him as a player.


All kidding aside, good times in F5B today.

I will say that I am a little pissed at Castle and Neu....I'm pretty sure it's all the're fault that my motor mount started to fail today......

I'm always good to provide comedy relief for the San Diego pros. I chuckle at my flying watching that video. Set the bar low enough and you'll always achieve your goal . Hey, there's always room for improvement.

Happy Holidays!

Juan

P.S.

I still feel like crap R.S.

Sorry to hear that Rich. I remember when Dick threw my pristine S11++, the first of the Frankenstein jobs. Well it went strait into the ground! Stuff happens.

Juan, you can see the progress within the span of that video. The climbs are awesome from the start. Nearer the end I believe you are doing ~20 second sets, so on the road to 40 legs! Haven't seen anyone do that before.

You Don't Know Jack


As Kris and I had elected to mount drag increase devices to the top of our fuses this past Sunday, Steve "decided" he needed to equalize the playing field.

That's Steve's plane at the front; Meet Jack.

Happy Holidays to All!

Dennis,

There is no need to bring anything except a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat.
