You guys are right winter does suck!! we only got to fly one day last weekend!!![:'(] On Sunday it got to cold (48) and the wind was blowing a gail (30). But Saturday was 60ish and 5mph wind so we flew, and flew.
The funny thing is that here in south Texas we really don't have a "Building season", we just have the two, HOT, and NOT AS HOT. I'm a cheese-head transplant, seen the snow and cold, I'll take the heat anyday..

I haven't flown all winter. We have about 1 ft of snow and 30-40 mph winds constantly. Oh, and its been below freezing for almost a month straight.[:'(][:'(]

It was the reciever after the meeting with the ground I was setting up another plane with the same reciever and it started to act up on the table so I hit it with a big f*&%#@G hammer.I will order another fuselodge,Dub Jett already has the motor,the motor was about 6in deep.The wings and tail fins all ok.
