This last weekends fun

I met Mark, Bob, and Bill at our practice field yesterday (Sunday). Temp was 58 to start and finished at 71 degrees by 4:00 PM. Winds were 0-15 with gusts up to 20 mph. Clear skies for the most part, there was a couple of big clouds that moved through fairly fast.

I showed up 10 minutes before the rest, so now is the time to test out my Whippy #2. I’ve been having clutch problems with it ever since I put this second one together. The motor and...

Our first full day of flying…FINALLY!

Saturday was a great day for flying here in the Midwest! Sunny skies, light breeze (that turned nasty for a short while), and warm! 78 degrees!!!

Mark and I met for breakfast at 7:00 AM, then we headed out to our practice area with lunch (tailgate grilling), pop-up tents, and heli's. After we setup camp, I wanted to try out my second Whippy with the RC300 motor and Jewel generator system.

This Whippy is one smooth...

Sunday, The first May weekend

I met Mark at our practice area after church. The day started out overcast with the threat of rain, but it never happened. The sky managed to clear up mostly, just after 1:30 PM. My heart wasn't into flying...but I stayed to help out Mark. I told him what was bugging me and he proceeded to get me in the air anyways. We placed a call to Bob and ask if he was coming out, he said he was on his way. Just as Mark and I were getting ready to start our heli's,...
