Hello!
I am recovering from radiation therapy and have dizzy spells also but I keep them under control by drinking lots of water ( who da thunk it) maybe it will help you too.

Good luck!

Hey Donny! I wish you the best! Finally have my ENT appointment tomorrow after months of waiting and hopefully will have some kind of diagnosis at some point. Having to be outside regardless of how I feel is bringing carnage to my Air Wing Fleet..... Been trying to fly cause it gets me out and it hasn't been pretty with these dizzy spells. Unfortunately alternating with stuck on the couch till 3 yesterday dizzy as could be. Having a bad week with it....Last few nice days around here till winter hurts being inside. I could only hope drinking more water would fix it for me. Pretty sure Lab work ruled that out though months ago. Have to admit though, I have always been better at taking care of others than myself.... I probably should drink more water!

After 5 days of 'doom&gloom', the sun came back, so did my flying action. LOL.

Started early in light drizzle.


I thought I'll never see the sun again after 5 days of non-stop rain!

I expect down here 3rd. year with no summer, must be the 'La-Nino', something to blame it on. Everything seem to be going down the gurgle, economy, not to mention the human race with their current presentation, fat as pigs, tattooed and studded all over. LOL.
Sun was out this morn, made most of it in perfect dead calm, absolute magic runs with my improved "CR Blue Swallow".

Next prognostics, 4 days of blue sky.

Dead calm magic runs.

This is my latest presentation, fat, ugly and real gross design, premier flight in the morning at the beach. Hope it will fly better than it looks, LOL.

Fat and ugly.

Designed for the CR power unit.

Almost there.

Beach time.

After almost the whole week being stuck in my jet studio thanks to the worst weather in my living memory, with the huge floods all over the country, the sun was out today, almost no sign of the drenching with the local sand base grounds, I made most of it to catch up, LOL.

Finishing the day off with A2PRO Bell.

TX, lot of fun with these, this morn took out all 3 CR ones, perfect dead calm monday to start the week. The "Purple swallow" Aileron servo started jittering badly, another job to swapit over.
Just listed one this morn on RCT For Sale, actually giving away my 120hour labor of love, LOL.

For Sale, empty frame of fully fitted out option.


Hovering pirrouettes.

Flying with jittering Ail. servo.

Bit of a battle in the breeze with this one.
