Joe is sick this week so we need not pick on him as much as we should.

Well, we hope that he gets better soon - ya'hear Joe?

By the way, Jeff - since gas is so cheap now , maybe you could drive over to Des Moines
and fly with us one of these weekends? Or come to our Spring Contest ....

Thanks Jeff, I owe you one... [:@]

I'm at work right now so I don't access to my pictures, nor do I have the time to go into it, so I'm going to have to let the suspense build a little more. Perhaps I'll have the time this evening.

Joe is feeling better. Now we can pick on him until he posts pics of his beautiful Skyray.
And probably shortly after.

Joe's Lawn Dart. Maybe we could invent a game or something. Put a bullseye on the ground and see who can plant their plane in it. Might be a bit expensive.

Don't worry Joe it happens, so long as you learned something..? Built a dewybird for my friend’s son and taught him to fly. He did a wonderful job, only one pancake landing and no damage, unlike his father who tried a wingover but failed to pull up [:@]

Not sure what I "learned" - maybe how to do the perfect "Figure 9"? Seriously though, I started out on 31' lines, but did notice that it was coming in on me in the half-lap that it was airborne, so I increased the right thrust and dropped down to 27' lines... pretty much the same result, half-lap, zoom up, 'round and down... Ray seems to have a mind of his own, or I'm just not thinking fast enough to stay ahead of what he's doing. Poor Ray's had his nose reattached about 7 times now, as well as many cracks in the fuse... thank goodness for thin CA and five minute epoxy!

Now the Man-Win trainer in the other pics... Oh my gosh, that thing is possessed! I wish I had a camera trained on me for that - I was doing consecutive loops, wingovers, reversals, inverted flight - all without trying! Got about 3 uncontrolled laps out of it before I finally plowed that one into the ground. It was so bad, I dragged my .40 size Kaos and Herr Lil Extra out after that one "to calm my nerves"!!!

I've hung the C/L planes up for a while, I gotta take a step back, think about this, and maybe get some help...
