Heli-Log 12:7:11

Posted 12-07-2011 at 05:32 PM by rcnut

Managed to get in one flight yesterday after work. Coronal called as I was sitting at the light at work. He asked if I wanted to go out to the flying field and get some flying in. Ah...yea! But by the time I get home, grab my heli (Protos 500) and make it to the field, it will almost be dark out. He said ok, maybe some other day.

Well, I went home and grabbed my heli any ways. Put in one flight as it was getting dark. Need to get the night flying gear on!

I haven't...
