I had flying weather again this mourning so i took the UB out for a nice mourning fly. The motor was cutting in and out so i think it might be time for a different esc. It flew ok at a lower speed but when i opened up above half throttle she ran sorta eradic.

Hi there,

Im in the Uk and its been sending bucket loads down last couple of days.

Any how, just took delivery of my 2nd hand Multiplex Micro Jet - has a Align 2700kv.

Went out twice this morning and wow does this thing go fast!!!

I need to get some sun glasses as I couldn't take my eyes off it and they were streaming because of the Sun.

Any how, just waiting for the Batts to recharge and go again, hopefully rain will stay at bay.

Happy flying people.

Cheers

Steve

You don't know how many times Ive thought about putting floats on one on my planes airmail. I just can't decide whether thay should go on the P-47 or the P-38

Actually today is perfect. It's currently 70 degrees, sunny and winds out of the nowhere at zero mph. I just don't have time to get out. I'm getting ready to take my son camping this weekend so I've got a lot of getting ready to do.

Make sure you pack a plane. You never know when you will get a chance to fly.

Takeoffs are optional. Landings are mandatory.

Just got back. Didn't take any planes. Now where to fly them anyway. We were in the bottom of the mountains in a state park. It was a great weekend with just me and the Little Man though.

I thought about that too Kev. I'm not sure that my Aero Aces would have even fit very well.

Wow talk about close quarters. Dang.

No flying for me tonight. Windy/gusty with storms headed in. But Wednesday is Club night, and looks very promising on the 3 day forecast.

Same here. Supposed to clear up after tomorrow and in the 90s the rest of the week and weekend. Looks like summer is here.

Well this mourning is another good one for flying so i put the UB up again for a batt. and had a nice flight in the mourning sun. Nothing fancy just cruised her around in circles and fig. 8s up above the Jackpines then made a nice landing and took her back in the house to charge up the Batt. Cool this mourning 40deg. but no wind.

Why not go fly while you wait?

Fun fly at our club field this weekend, and it is supposed to be beautiful. Just hope the winds are cooperative.

lol then i stripped the main gear out of the gear box... but that was easily fixed by simply replacing the whole motor with my e-flite park 400.. she isnt as fast as before, but she flies!

It was the mid 90's here today and it's looking to be that for the next week if not hotter. I'm just digging a hole and am hoping to find a cool spot so I can pull it in over me. -Rod-

It's been raining all morning here, but no worries, since I am working today. LOL

Tomorrow for our club's Fun Fly, forecasted to be sunny, 85, and winds 5-10MPH. Sounds like a great forecast to me!
