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...

The last few days of IRCHA…Friday…

Morning temps were cool…65 degrees with a light breeze.

I arrived at the Jamboree early this time, as Mark had overslept…again! I started off finalizing my shopping list. I checked out the FPV glasses and the new Accu simulator…not bad actually, but nothing for Mac at this time. I made my way back to our site and helped my buddy Ray programing his radio. Mark arrived and put up a couple of flights while I was working with Ray, he...

Live From IRCHA!

Day 3

Morning temps were cool…65 degrees with a light breeze.

Mark and his family showed up at 9:00 am. We ran around Wednesday registering, getting our golf carts, checking out the museum, setting up his tent, and then my buddy Ray pulled in! By the time we found him, he was settling in nicely!

Mark and I decided to walk vender row for some shopping fun! I bought another Goblin 700 for a gasser conversion and some badly...

Live from IRCHA…Yea Baby!

Day 1

I made it to IRCHA! A little later than I had planned. I saw a semi roll-over on 65 in the North bound lane, and construction was everywhere throughout. Plus there is that one hour time change…for me.

As I was pulling, I had to take a bunch of pic's for Mark…teasing him! Mark was at work and I thought I would help him out…helping him keeping his mind on work…not IRCHA! LoL! However, he loved them and asked me to keep sending...
