Last night was consumed with cleaning, instead of getting a flight in before the sun goes down.

Yep, it’s time to clean out the ole work shop! Had too many projects that spawned leftover parts all over my bench. And the tool box was stacked fairly high (pretty sad). So now is a good time to re-organize and find places to put everything. Now I need a section in the work room for all the electronic goodies I have collected. This project might take the rest of this week…maybe a re-layout...

Well, yesterday was better than Saturday. Temperature was 41 with a light to 5 mph wind, and the sky was scattered with light clouds. I couldn’t ask for anything better…in January!

Went out again after church, this time I flew my Protos 500 three times and my Rave once. Tim had call while I was on my way to fly and said he would meet me there. Tim brought his mCPx and a Trex 450. Tim mainly wanted to try the mCPx in a bigger area, compared to where he fly’s now.

Yesterday was a great day! The temp reached 44 degrees with a steady wind around 10 mph.

First up was my new Super Sportster by Great Planes. I wasn't sure what to expect on the first flight. During the build, the balance didn't come out right per the manual. It was very nose heavy! In order to achieve balance, I needed to put a 2 cell 5000mAh LiPo at the tail wheel. Instead, I placed the LiPo as far back as I could...at the trailing edge of the wing. First flight, needed to add...

Put in another 2 flights yesterday on my Protos 500. Temp was 48 degrees, well above normal temperatures. Today the weatherman states 52 degrees for a high! Is this the beginning of Spring? It sure feels like it! Tomorrow’s temperature…43 degrees, looks like I’ll have to go flying all day. So far, I have 34 flights on my Protos.

I’ve been waiting to work on my mCPx once the temp became too cold to venture outside. As long as the weather is decent, I’ll keep flying outside of...

Happy New Years everyone!

Well here it is January 1st... and the weather is crappy! It had been a tradition at our flying field to fly on Jan. 1st. Well, the temp is ok, but the winds are 32 mph and gusting to 44 mph! Our new VP decided to send out the invitations for our first flight of the year. I believe I'm the only one who showed up.

I thought I would try my Protos 500 to see how it would react to the winds. I had to initialize the Beast X inside the truck bed...
