Default Finally! Good weather and our new record

Frank and I went to our favorite jump field yesterday and logged 20 jumps!! Everything worked perfectly -- no plane troubles, engine troubles, line-overs or landing mishaps. Wind was 7-14 but straight down the runway and unlimited visibility. Frank jumped three different jumpers including one that was in a tree for six months (found by loggers). Big much fun!!!

Was Frank aiming for a certain spot on the ground, as in practicing for Muncie, if so how close did he get?

He had a target on the ground and was on it to out to 30 feet. 30 feet was the farthest he missed.... He said "dumb thumbs"

Question: i am using 2 4 cell 5000 mah lipos wired in series to a castle ice esc. One pair of batteries works fine. Another set shows 16-18 volts on the castle data logger. Wouldnt run bc less than 3 v per cell. Mess with the cells , changed y leads , no help. Went home and checked them again, worked just fine. Batteries show 16.5 v each. Can a pack pass the other pack juice? Any EE guys out there?

Default Drop planes

Here are three of our telemasters. Built from RCM plans and modified a bit. Perfect size for one guy.
