  • Got out again today and got 20 flights on 5 of my aircraft, beautiful weather as well. We've been very lucky flying here as our field has stayed open since June 1st after only closing for 45 days. We have over 450 members, although during the week like today only 3-4 show up so we all pretty much have the skies and field to ourselves. I feel for those of you who are locked down and unable to fly, but so far none of our members has contracted the virus. I guess they think we're all older than 2 (except me of course) and can figure out how to keep safe. Just can't keep the Spitfire, Corsair and A-10 home, they sneak into the truck every time I decide to head out.

    • Didn't fly today but I did fly my Roban 800 size OH-6 and Magnum PI over the holidays, sorry about the not so good video on the Magnum PI, need to get a hat cam or something better, if your picky about good videos, better not watch mine.

        • I just got homme from flying my 2.1m Cessna 150 in the dark with no extra lights other then what came on it. I get a lot of people stopping by all the time to watch. They just can not believe how nice it flies in the dark and it does look like it is a full scale coming in for a landing at the Fair Ground LOL!!! just watch a video I did with my Go Pro put it does not work well in the dark. In the last week I have been getting acquainted with my new IX20 Spektrum Transmitter, So far I have taken all the planes I have in my two DX8 G2's and imported all into my new IX 20 thats just 23 of the planes I have took me most of one day just to rebind and check all LOL!!! happy New Year to ya all. PS my brother tried to get a few photo's in the dark, but they did not turn out either. but here is a photo of one of my Cessna 150's the other I leave the floats on all year. I fly it off the lakes during Spring and summer and off the snow in the winter. So far this winter all we are getting are High winds 25 to 40 and gust to 60

          • Got 4 aircraft out today and flew about 20 sorties. Great way to get your mind off the craziness going on. Flew my A-10, F-16, Avanti and the 62" MXS Heavy Metal. Winter down here usually has great temps but the wind is almost always much stronger and usually is a crosswind. Today the wind was calm to maximum 5 mph, so it was unusually nice, although very overcast which made visibility a bit tough. Need to get out more!! As I'm sure we all do.

              • My older brother and I went out yesterday and did some flying. I flew my T-33 and my 2.1m Cessna 150. I love doing main wheel touch and go's with the 150 with out the nose gear touching down and greasing the main wheels. Then I made the first flight's on a couple planes for my brother, First was his new E-fight Cirrus R22 1.5m he had ready then I test flew his T-34 Mentor which is an older Arf which I set up on one of his DX 8 Gen. 2 trans. and imported into my new IX 20 so I can dial it in then setup the AS3X and safe with my IX 20, The t-34 has a new AR637T receiver installed. We had a blast flying all day later I went home and loaded up my new V-1200. We have got it on Radar at 147 with the stock prop Love how this one flies. This plane reminds of the Q 40's I have flown. I need to order the APC 10X12 prop to get it up to over 160 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtnDhH6UyM0

                • My brother and I went out again today. I took my T-33. and my brother had his Aero Scott and his Hobby Zone Mini Apprentice. Here is a video of him doing touch and go's. There is one where he tipped the plane, which was the worsted He has made in a long time. when I solo my Students most can land like Experts. My brother has yet to break any props on any of the 4 trainers he has been flying for over 1 1/2 years The Aero Scott he has been flying for a year and a half now has 140 hours flying time on it. His two FMS Rangers have over 30 hrs. each. and the Apprentice has about 20 Hrs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enABKa9U--I

                  • I finally got around to uploading another video I did yesterday with my FreeWing T-33 Shooting Star. This EDF is a very comfortable EDF to fly. In the Video coming in to landing I clipped the top of a tree, or it was the thrust from the EDF that wiggled the tree top LOL!!! I still need to get this one dialed in. I have yet to set up dual rates or Expo, I have just been flying it on the recommended High rate throws LOL!!! I just imported it into my new IX20 and set up dual rates and expo's I may like. Now if the high wind we are having since last night, today and tomorrow will ever die down I can go check it out. Our Winds Have been 35 to 50 and gust over 70 and will continue all day tomorrow Yet, these high winds Sucks
