"The Grass Is Brown Everywhere"

Year's ago I took a job in Texas and when I started work I discovered that I had been "sold" on the job as much as I had been selling myself to the company.

After 2 weeks of discovering how this new job was even worse than my previous one, I returned to the former job (with a big pay increase) and coined the phrase "The Grass Is Brown Everywhere" to explain why I returned.

The acronym TGIBE became my username on many forums and accounts over the years...

Finally flying again

Posted 10-19-2008 at 01:30 PM by TGibe

Well I am back out flying after taking the summer off for Golf.

I still am amazed at how well the 500 flies. The bird is so responsive and stable. For basic circuit flying like I do the Align 6S batteries last sooo long. I set my timer for 7:30 and never come close to 80% battery burn.

This time of year in the NW the mornings can be cool (40s and 50s) and the wind is usually dead calm until about lunchtime. For me that is about perfect flying weather.

I usually start out by flying my 450 through 5 packs and then move to the 500. by the time I am on my 4th pack with the 500 the winds will just be starting to pick up, but no worries as the 500 can handle them fine.
