Its all crazy ... you US peeps have our Arctic / Siberian conditions ... UK has Asian Monsoon ... we in Baltic are just looking at rain and crap instead of crisp snow and blue skies -10C which we should have.

Worlds gone crazy.

Model Airplane "build to win" contest deadline was Dec 31, 2013.
I finished my entry in December and had one chance to get an in-flight video. That one chance failed because the camera person didn't know how to operate their high end camera and the flight ended with a cracked propeller. I had no spare prop.
Dec was filled with all kind of bad weather and Jan & Feb have been worse than that. Worst winter on record for this area, below zero temps, single digit temps, high wind and snow, lots of snow, and its still on the ground.
The Model Airplane folk kinda put us northern folk at a disadvantage with a middle of the winter deadline.
Oh Well ! At least I have a neat airplane to fly when the weather breaks.

I made the correct decision for once and just flew once last Sunday....

We were dumped on with 8 more inches of snow yesterday and this morining it was -4 F on the way into work. Will this winter ever end?

Steve

Growing the fleet!
