First flight report of 2018. I Flew a plane today!

Post  RknRusty on Sat Feb 24, 2018 10:16 pm

Our annual February meeting at Watt Field was today. Watt Moore, of course. And so I drove up to Chester, SC to hangout with my club buddies. I got a few pics and a video, none of me, but I'll post them later. Will Davis was not going to let me get away without flying. I was a bit dubious about it. But he dragged a swiveling high-backed bar stool out of Watt's shop, so tall my feet couldn't touch the ground. Then he went to his truck and got an electric Flite Streak on 60' of Spider Wire, rigged it up and I got on the chair. It was supposed to be set for only a minute, but it turned out to be about 3. He turned the chair and I flew. Even did some loops. Once or twice the lines got a little loose in the breeze, so that made it even more exciting, but I flew it out and landed on the wheels. For a few minutes there, I was happy boy. Actually, I already was anyway, but that made the day even better.

Eddie RickenRusty, reporting for duty!

Glad to hear that Rusty. I'm quite certain just being at Watt's house is quite therapeutic. His shop is pretty amazing and it certainly sounds like a good time. Shawn and I managed to get out this past Sunday. It was a day out which was way overdue. I have a lot of unfinished projects that need completing and I've decided to finish them before moving onto others. Ken

Very glad to read that Rusty..the best therapy one can get is a gradual return to the hobby. I also flew my TeeDeeVoodoo last weekend and cannot tell you how relieving it was even if I had been off before due to simple weather conditions only.

I wish you do that and without the barstool more and more often and looking forward to  seeing your vids and pics.

The beautiful gesture of your friend to help you fly again is exemplary.

Hahaha, Watt Moore indeed! Love you guys, thanks a bunch. Yeah, I really am healing pretty fast. I always have, luckily for me.

Hi Ron,
It's been kind of hard to plan around things, but I'll settle for rolling with the punches if it gets me through it all. I just want to make a clean run past the end of flu season. I shook hands about 20 times yesterday and used  almost the whole bottle of alcohol gel I had in my pocket. Holley and I shared monster colds and lived to talk about it. Sheez, what a winter No

I considered fist-bumping at the meeting, but it wasn't really a crowd of fist-bump kind of people. But I spent most of today walking without the cane, so there's light at the end of the tunnel.

Tight lines and fair winds, Jason. Thanks for the sunny face, Bob, it's been nice to have some spring-like sun here lately. That's like new life energy. Fred, that's a pretty good and accurate li'l emoticostory. And Jim, I'll see you on our show tomorrow night. I was posting the re-runs here, but haven't kept up with it for a few weeks now. I'll have to catch up on that, I think we have a couple of watchers from CEF. I hope you got some good wx to maiden that Twister this weekend. It's time for some flying for all of us!

Goodnight, all,
Rusty
