Dave, you need to get less chair time and more air time in!

Yeah, and I need a good hair piece too!

I'll have pictures from this and the last outing up tomorrow.

Well, this time it wasn't my fault I'm late with the pictures. I logged on last night to post 'em up and it turns out the site was down allegedly "for maintenance". I thought our glorious Admin did it on purpose so he could get in a couple of jabs but that evidently wasn't true.

Here we go! These were taken on 11-14.

Last Sunday afternoon was a pretty nice day. Lots of sun and not too cold. There was a mild wind that caused some concern for a while, but Don whipped out his micro Spitfire and went in the air! Nick, not to be outdone by Don, decided to maiden a micro Albatross and his new ST Blaze hot/warmliner/glider like thing! Both looked great and flew without incident.

More in a bit....

Dave

I'm being tasked again...

Been a long time since we met up and got some relaxed stick time in. It was great chewing the fat with Nick and Dave and looking at Nick's new plane.

Super! Do you live over in Milan or Humboldt? The land is private property so it's best to go out there when we're flying the first time so they can see someone familiar. We leave the site as clean as we can and do our best not to drive on the sod damaging his property. I'll post the next time we're going to fly out there and PM you my contact info.

Don and I met at the sod farm today. We had a nice sunny day, which is a break from the wet snow we've had the past week. The temps were low, but the wind was calm, and the flying was good.

I maidened my Tuffwing and Speedwing, and got in flights on my PZ Extra, E-flite Yak, and UM Stryker.

looks like a great time and a little warmer than up here.

Don does the 2.5 have better range than the 2.4?
Sounds like a great guy to hook you up with a new radio system.
