Here we are mid point of September!

Last weekend, Mark and I had our practice field all to ourselves for both days (no Bob, Bill, John, or Chuck to distract us). Mark made the comment of not wanting to use the buddy-box…ok with me! It’s time for him to grow some wings and fly. We had a few miss-haps, but nothing serious. Mark had a roll over on take-off, the swashplate on my Rave started to separate, and the tail control rod snapped.

Mark and I made it out this Sunday....

Here we are…the beginning of September! Fall time…

Goodbye summer! Sad to see you go so soon! However, the cooler weather, Fall, will make our gas motors produce more power. They really like the cooler to colder weather!

It’s been a few weeks since IRCHA…like 3 weeks now, and Mark and I finally made it back to the flying field. Work has gotten in the way (10 hour days, 7 days a week). So this Labor Day weekend was a nice break. Saturday was a mix of rain and sunny...
