Sorry, I got interrupted writing the story, but here's the video. I'll return with the entertaining details in a while.

Woah Buddy!!! We need to start calling you "Wringin' it Rusty"

You gave the old Fox a workout!

I liked the inverted pullouts, I see you experienced the "burp" a few times!

Good flying, looks like a blast. The roller coaster landing was awesome, you could hear the wind in the camera audio.

Yeah I did wring it out pretty good. I think any engine would have burped the way I was yanking it around. I kept thinking it must  be out of gas but it just kept on going. Too lean for sure. I thought I had it tuned just right when I launched, but it ran balls to the wall the whole time. That was four ounces. It sure is twitchier than the old Skyray. That's what I'd been flying all day before I put the Yak up. It's going to be a fun one to fly. It's nice to have a plane I can really jerk around but I'm still overly careful because I do not want to bust it up. It's floated on me every single time I've landed it. Oh well, I guess if the wheels are down when it stops it's good enough. It's never not windy out there, even when it's dead calm in town.

It was only supposed to be in the low 90s today with a front and storms moving through this afternoon. Wayne and I were expecting to meet up with Bob Zambelli for some flying. Mr. Z being an Old Time Stunt guy and a Fox engine expert, I absolutely had to bring the Yak-9. He called on the phone while we were there, and had unfortunately forgotten this was the day he was heading to Muncie Indiana for the Nats. So it was just the two of us. Wayne decided he wanted to play with his slimers so he left the electrics at home today and showed up with a Flite Streak ARF and a scratch built Primary Force. I wish I'd gotten pictures. The Force is a beautiful sleek profile. Now I'm in love with yet another plane. Rolling Eyes

I got there at 9:30 and by 10:30 it was a major sweatbox out there. I mean sweat in your eyes, glasses getting splattered, clothes sticking, handle slipping around, mmmmaan it was hot. I always go on about never having to adjust the NV on the Skyray's fp35... I flew two over-rich loose line patterns before I turned it in far enough to get some speed and tension. Wasted two flights and it ran out of fuel once in the wingover exiting the cloverleaf and once... somewhere, I don't remember but I had to baby it in inverted. I finally got it running right and did some decent patterns. I botch some and do some good, and it's usually different ones every time. I've done each stunt pretty well at least once, so that's good.

Wayne had his share of fuel feed troubles which is evident in the video I'll post later, like tomorrow. I got one of him flying the Streak. Even though it was hot and sweaty, we really had a blast. An excellent day of flying.
