That or taxiway tender

He was really well behaved this time. In previous sessions, he would get in front of the plane. I powered up and ran prop into his leg one time. He yelped and moved, but all that long fur kept him from getting cut. Another time he ran over one as I landed. I now have a footprint permanently in my Lowfer wing! Hopefully he is learning. . . .

She settles quite nicely as I hold attitude with elevator and slightly reduce power. Gonna bee fun on the water i think!
That looks like solid progress to me.
And that landing! Smoooooooth...

Touche.
This will be settled with streamers attached to nutballs.
Five nutballs were in the air at the same time last week. And, three hit the floor at the same time.
Carnage.

Can't wait.

Our hobby needs our help.
You can write to the FAA through this website, I am!
http://amablog.modelaircraft.org/ama...ormal-comment/
My comments will include:
1. How our organized groups share safety practices.
2. Questions the FAA on how they will get notice to "Undisciplined" flyers about NOTAMS and safety considerations.
3. How important our hobby is in family activity, parent - offspring bonding, etc.

Please don't interpret my comment in any way other than to preserve and promote our valuable activity!
-Dave

From Larry:
https://flip.it/s9jL9g

Starting to read it and saw this hilarious passage: "After all, the natural processes of evolution, working mindlessly, at random and without any understanding of physics, solved the mechanical problem of aerodynamic lift for soaring birds eons ago. Why should it be so hard for scientists to explain what keeps birds, and airliners, up in the air?"

What kind of hubris, "faith" and religious zeal does it take to believe that anything as elegant as bird flight (and the "hardware" to achieve it) came about by mindless, random chance mutations? Have you ever seen a positive result of any mutation? Has anyone? Can anyone conceive of one?
