October 7th already, and the weather's been too poor to fly for over a month.

They got this over in Minnesota the other night. Not too far from me.

Hope you can get your airplane in the air soon.. but don't worry if you're a little late. Nobody "here" will mind. Actually.. there's some great tips on cold-weather flying.

Read  this thread when you get a chance... Smile

There are some good tips for cold weather flying in that thread. I kind of doubt I'll be trying it though. It's enough of a PITA trying to get set up, get the engine running, and avoid crashing the planes, without wearing 20 pounds of clothes, and slogging through 2 feet of snow. Huh...

I made a couple of attempts to fly the PT-19 today. Both failed. Didn't get off the ground.
On the second attempt, the lines snagged something and the plane turned in and wrapped the lines in the prop. Today was probably the last decent day we'll have around here to fly. Winter will be here soon.

Well Shoot, ya still get “atta boy” points for trying ! The weatherman used a four letter word in tonight’s forecast : SNOW. Just when I was getting used to the global warming.

Temperature yesterday was 43f, light east wind. That's about as good as can be expected around here, this time of year. Forecast is not pretty.



I think the flying days are over for this year.

Hey "TL".. sorry about the gremlins affecting your PT19 flight attempts yesterday.. DAMMIT! Many of you guys are prone to consistently colder weather a little bit before me; here in Rhode Island I guess. We "did" get a frost a week or so ago.. but the last few days have been in the 50's/60's.. with one day reaching 67F at 7:00 a.m. It's been rainy though.. Mad Mad Mad

It's been either mild and rainy.. or cold and windy.. Shocked Just can't catch a break..

The temperature here today was 47°f. That's about 30 degrees warmer than usual this time of year.

I got two flights in with the PT-19.  Wind started picking up after the second flight.

I know, pics or it didn't happen. Unfortunately, all my camera batteries died while trying to video the flights, so you'll have to take my word for it.

It was an absolutely beautiful day here for December.  If by some slim chance, tomorrow is as good as today was, I might try it again. Got fully charged camera batteries now.
