First practice was a fun day! It was really windy and slow. Jeff managed a personal best for the year, a solid 36. (okay, he had only one flight, but still, he did beat Kris' best score for the year! :-) Steve and Lenny seemed to gain speed, breaking the magic 40 legs, and finished the day with 42's and 44's. I managed to squeak out a 41 with near zero fuel remaining. Yes, the conditions were lousy, the pilots rusty, and we all had a good time anyway! Thanks to base judges for supporting the day, the support is appreciated very much. cheers, Eric

The servos are molded in, so they are whatever Sergey decided to install.
Aileron and elevator servos have typically been D60's, though later models have been moving to DS09's instead.
