So, after a dead plane landing at Schutte yesterday, which by some strange miracle only popped the gear loose, it was determined the ESC had a loose connection. When I got home, I sliced open the heat shrink on the ESC and found this;


It would appear that the only thing that had been holding the positive wire in place was the heat shrink! A quick solder job and recovering with heat shrink and all is well again.

My daughter (own idea) did a Teddy Bear fundraiser to bring Teddy Bears to children at Kent General for Christmas. The raised 60+ bears and will take them there and help Santa give them out to the kids.

That should help your holiday sprit......

Noah and I got there at 10:30 and had to leave at 12:00.
Sorry it did not work out. Would have let you lock up.
I will let you know about Sunday indoor. Do you have a time you want to be there?

I'll go. Earlier the better. Winds will be lower in the early morning. Might be a little chilly though. If its too cold I won't be staying long.

Noah and I are ready to fly.

Depends on the weather.

Indoor race or indoor flying is an option.
