And now June is just around the corner…

Well this was suppose to have posted last month. Not sure what happened! So here it is again...

The weather is finally getting better. The rain comes and goes now, but getting mostly sunny…and humid at times. I spent the last 4 out of 6 days off at our club flying field, and mostly talking with the members…getting up to date on the happenings with the field. Our electronic lock is gone due to some older members not being able...

Ah May…and it’s still raining!!!

Well, the weather here has been crap for the most part. Almost great during the week, but crappy approaching the weekend…normal. And this pandemic isn’t helping either, can’t workout at the gym, can’t get a haircut, and can’t go to a fun fly…as if the weather would let us, so…

A new toy!

I had some vacation time to burn up from work, and the day was fairly decent, except for the 25+ mph gusting winds. However, around the...

Another outing! Snuck out before the rain comes...again. Cold to start at 9:30 am, but warmed up nicely, and then the overcast clouds moved in! It started to sprinkle, so I left.

In the meantime, I managed 4 flights this time. Slowly checking out this new conversion. I found (or I think I have) the setting in the Spartan controller for the tail stop control. It has CW/CCW stop...

Synergy G696Z

I made it out yesterday (Friday), putting in another 2 flights! The weather was nice enough to get out. 40 degrees, with big puffy clouds and sunshine, 10+ mph out of the Northwest...burrrrr! This time I brought my radio glove. It felt weird at first, but I got over it. The first flight granted me 12 minutes. The second flight, with a little carb tuning, gained 2 more minutes,...

March, almost finished…this time!

I pulled the motor to inspect the clutch. My thought was the shoes was too tight/sticking. Well, it was somewhat, and that was an easy fix...but not the main problem. It was the one way in the main gear. So I need to pull the main gear out and see why the one way is backwards. Either I did this while reassembling the gear, after Loctiting everything, not paying attention, or the one way is simply installed...
