  • You know I have never flown at dusk or in low light conditions. I should get another T-28 just for that! not sure I am ready to fly the T-45 in low light yet

    • I don't post pics of what I flew cause we don't have anyone that takes them ever since our club historian quit flying.
      Well we just recently acquired a new member who also has a passion for being a shutterbug and he got these pics yesterday. Hope to talk him into becoming the clubs next historian.

      So these are three of the twelve that will take the ride to eWeek @ Tripletree

                  Ha! I almost replaced it but I thought I'd horse around with the CZ Cessna 150 instead.

                  • Been thinking about that HSD Skyraider. Now that I got a NAM era A4 (and maybe a second club member convinced to get one too) I might need me a "Sandy" for weather recon.
                    OV10 how do you like the Skyraider? Do you have some video of her?

                        Seaviper............the HSD A-1 is a great flying bird but unfortunately it was discontinued in the spring after only a year and half of production after getting the molds upgraded from Starmax.
                        No vids from me cause the majority of hat cams are just specks in the blue which are BORING and no one at our club has good vid equip. Am lucky now just having a new member willing to just take some decent photos.
                        I'll spend my time flying them versus trying to record them.
                        This IS one that FlightLine needs to do so that the airframe and it's spare parts will be around for awhile.

                              It's a VQ.............being the typical wedge wing tip it is not tolerant to the type of flyers that like to float em around which I know your not one of them
                              It doesn't have the scale AIL/FLAP hinging(like a Stuka) but..........
                              That pic of me low n slow with a full flaps presentation pass was a dicey maneuver.

                              • Had this trainer in the shelf which had not flown for a while. Took it today to the field to do some easy relaxed flight time.

                                Lets say it was not that easy relaxed after all....

                                I hate w a passion wings w only one aileron servo. It was my fault after all for not using a servo connector lock. It seems one of the aileron wires got tangled w the servo wire and when correcting right at take off it got disconnected.

                                The airplane banked left, barely scraped my suv, was able to catch enough altitude to let it downward spiral into the field and prevent from killing me on the way, lol.

                                I was so mad at myself for not using one of those connector locks, and I have tons of those in the toolbox, and decided take out all electronics and rip out the engine w its fuel tank, the rest dumped into the trash can. Refused at all cost to bring it back home, it was fulfilling to see it in the trash.

                                    I get really get mad at myself when I do stupid sh*t too. I've lost count but I think i am somewhere near stupid mistake 759. (That's just this year.) What I try to do is not repeat them though so I count that as progress.

                                      • Awesome shot!

                                        The airplane looks very sharp and realistic.


                                        ** thanks for the kind words. Took a deep breath, and clocked multiple flights on windy conditions. Flew a flat symmetrical high wing w a .52 (bolted wing, no rubber bands) tail dragger,, plenty of power and good speed at wot w the wind.
