    I Am Sick!

    ........OF THIS WEATHER! Now I know you folks up North have it worse than we do. We have lived in Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, and Denver, so I have paid my cold dues, but this winter has been a real pain. My winter projects look as if they will carry over into late Spring or early Summer. The small space heater I can usually use to heat my workbench area is useless in this continuing cold, and I am dying to get out to the field. Bring on Spring.......NOW!
    Will add something clever and witty if I ever come up with something.

    Last June it was to hot and humid to be flying so crank up the A/C and make a 1/2 inch stand off that matches the rear of the engine mount. Don't like posts for engine stand offs. First video cutting the relief inside then the second video cutting it free from the stock.

    Naw a survivalist maybe I'd go nuts if I was stuck indoors and couldn't go out flying or at least building something. I know friends who stay inside watching tv and doing a little building and by the end of winter they look like Jack Nicholson in The Shining.

    Usually we get stretches of great weather in the winter. These are the times that I use to build or fly. This year, however, it just won't stay warm enough. I also ride and my motorcycle hasn't even been out yet. YUCK!
    Will add something clever and witty if I ever come up with something.

    Loved the video and the AN225 photos... and AMA, it brings me back to our time in Minnesota. We lived in Savage just west of Burnsville and there would still be snow outside of our front window in May. It faced north, but still. Just remember, if you live in Savage, you have Savage Police, Savage Barbers, and Savage conditions to deal with.....

    Perhaps it is time to utilize an underdeveloped skill, such as (dare I say? ) laying off the ARFs and build a kit! I'm putting together a kit now, a 46" (1,168mm) wingspan 1959 Berkeley Impulse single channel pylon racer. With all the rough edges, you haven't lived until you've built a Berkeley! Building a Berkeley will make a man out of you, LOL.

    Yep , bout the same here , we got a solid foot of ice in the yard with another foot of snow on top . This AM it was a refreshing 4 1/2 degrees F at the field and Dubro snow skis be darned , I can last about as long as one unhappily frozen Lipo at that temp ( 5 minutes of flying followed by 20 min of swearing "I thought the car heater usta get hotter than THIS !!!")

    Just think , a few months and we get to grumble at how hot it is

    Love the plow. Add chains and you have a monster for deep snow! And with the camera, you can do the whole neighborhood while enjoying hot chocolate at home.... Or something stronger.

    Thailazer,

    Nice flying- It looked like you almost hit that white post.......

    The area is beautiful - are those rice paddies with all the water? You need to add floats to the J3.

    Keith
    Those are indeed rice fields, and sometimes they plant soy bean there during dry seasons or when they do irrigation canal maintenance. Floats would be a great idea as the fields are normally just water for a good month before they plant the seedlings. Have to put that on the list of projects. Here is a forward looking view taken earlier in the planting season.
