Temple Hill Carnage


Today me, matt and my buddy eric went up to Temple around 5. Lift was insane and probably one of the best flying days I have had up at Temple this season. Wind was blowing a solid 20 or so and we were getting some high speed runs out of our wings compared to normal. Lift was so good we flew till it was dark which was a pleasant change cause things havent been to good lately. My buddy eric decided to combat his custom home built balsa which made for a blast. He got 5 kills on me and matt then finally I gave him the death blow. I love balsa carnage hahaha. Is everyone still on for thursday now that Matt Hans left for school?

Also-FYI I went to wal-mart and bought two sets of led glow sticks so maybe we can try some nite flying on thursday if anyone is down. They are only like 2.50ea and we can tape them on our wings. They do it up at little mountain. If anyone is down maybe they can go pick up a set. Let me know.

Hey Matt We still do Thursdays for sure until time change then may try some of that night time action. Working on a night flyer and may just have try to do a few more weekend trips. Hard for me usually working on my house over the weekends and Gregg usually busy with his family. Gregg tried flying his Zagi at little mountain with these light sticks added on it really changed his cg made it pretty hard to fly with cg being off and getting used to the darkness. Bring weights to rebalance your plane install the glow stick and balance it before it gets dark! Should be a lot of fun

Try Dollar Tree Store in San Dimas.
SW corner of San Dimas Ave & Bonita Ave.
Halloween is coming and the store carries many glow sticks & necklaces.

Gregg just bought a bag of 15 small glow sticks for $5 at Walmart, perfect sized for taping on your wing. Mixed colors in bag. The lights on John's plane were not glow sticks they are battery powered lights.

Matt-

Thanks for looking for the lost aircraft locator. I'm not sure why some don't work with 2.4. I will not be able to make it to Temple Hill tomorrow but will try to get up there next week. Hope you have a good time if you go, tho!

You guys missed out on a great evening of flying. The wind was a little strange changing up in the 5 to 7 time frame but got fantastic as sunset approached and for our night flying. Used glow sticks on wings worked great! Brought Prairie Dog for Jim but he was a no show. McMatt showed after dark to do some night flying getting off school early. We will start doingWednesdays due to McMatt's new school schedule.
