I am BACK!

Post  RknRusty on Thu Apr 13, 2017 6:08 pm

Back in action, that is. We went out to the Congaree field today and I took the Tutor. Expecting to fly the 45 deg. maneuvers and omitting the overheads as I've been doing ever since 11:30 AM November 17th, 2016, I rigged her up and took to the air. I skipped the wingover and went into the loops and felt no tingling. Squares, triangles, all free of any sign of pinching nerves. So what the heck, Pulled into a wingover and flew the whole reverse maneuver. Again and again. Not a twinge. Took a vertical 8 all the waaaayy back behind my head... not a hint of a tingle. I was stumbling around pretty bad, but managed not to fall down, ran it out of gas and landed.

Filled her up again, took an hour break and flew a pattern. So, with a couple of weeks to get over the stumbles, I might just be competing after all.
cheers

Thanks, Guys, I'm pretty happy and got a little more pep in my step. Even if I'm too limited compete much in contests, at least I can compete with myself, which I really enjoy just about as much, maybe even more. Holley was excited for me too when I got home and gave her my flight report. I also look forward to resuming my regular flying stories, which have been seriously on the wane lately. I will be careful and not over-do it. I called it a day after only two flights, just to be on the safe side. Maybe the warm weather is helping loosen things up.

For someone who does all his flying vicariously(me), through
you and Kim, that is indeed great news!
Stay on the mend, bro.

I've heard that a cold beer after flying helps prevent recurring injuries. It might be worth a try, or two.

I'm really happy for you man! You were one of my first contacts when I joined here almost four years ago. Holley knows your passion.. and it's really good that she supports you Rusty.

Lol, I remember your first post, running a Black Widow, maybe screwed to a fence post or something. Wife in the background asking why you were making all that noise... Honey, I'm making a Movie!

Man, I can feel it in the muscles today. All that walking, squatting, kneeling, standing, and jaw-jacking that a flying expedition involves was a good workout. Gotta get back in shape. Dribbled fuel all over my pants, a band-aid or two, greasy glasses, hat-hair; sure was good to come home filthy at the end of the day again.

You didn't imagine it Rusty.. It was an early post with a vid of me running a Babe Bee; equipped with the Ace/Cooney venturi-throttle and one of my homemade mufflers. It gets pretty comical.. which is probably why you remember it.  Laughing

Here's that thread. I had joined the forum about a month before posting it. Hard to believe it was almost 4 years ago.

When are you going to give that muffler-kit a try? You know.. the one I sent you in the Altoid tin...  tongue

Thanks, buddy. I haven't been out to try again since then, but hope to go this Sunday if the rain stays away.

I'll take my Tutor to Huntersville. I sure as heck ain't going to fly my Twister over the pavement. I won't have had any real practice since the October contest. One outing in October, I crashed the Twister(flying well and lost the handle), and the next outing in November, I had the electric neck pinch. Then in January I tried to fly and destroyed the Cardinal.

But last week I improved drastically between the first and second flight. I was stumbling all over the place on the first flight, and almost fell down during the landing glide. I hope I can gain some confidence before contest time, because I have very little right now.

Hope that you can continue with the good stuff...it's GOT to be frustrating, but glad you're swinging at getting back into the patterns.

Don't worry Rusty, I have flown exactly once this year. I suck pretty bad right now. Might fly tomorrow if the weather cooperates. It won't matter for Combat but the lack of flying will certainly hurt me in Stunt.
