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...

Well, the end of 2011 is approaching fast. Just 2 days left for this year!

Christmas Day I managed to get in one flight on my Compass 3D+. It was bitter cold and windy. Most unusual this time of the year weather wise. Then yesterday I demoed my Protos 500 for a friend. It was 26 degrees with a light breeze, which made one fingers semi frozen! The temp was forecasted for the low 30's, but never made it out of the high 20's...burr!

I've been looking at upgrading my mCPx....

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !!

Yesterday I got in two flights before all the family festivities started! I started off with the Protos 500. It felt great to fly it in an open area, compared to the much smaller lot by my house. Then it was time to try the Compass 3D+. The new clutch works fine. However, the Compass felt very slow (and the motor is very rich right now). I attribute most of this to flying the Protos a lot, still...it moves slower. I'm starting to notice...

Managed to put in one flight yesterday after work...before the sun went down (I needed that fix!).

Our club meeting was Dec.7, and the voting for new board member was indeed interesting. 5 new members and 2 re-elected. However, right after the results and congratulations, our re-elected treasurer decided to step down. For reason I won't go into here. Then a day later our secretary also stepped down. So now we have to pick two people to fill the positions. We held a board...
