Damn the oak trees, full speed ahead

Go down

Shocked Damn the oak trees, full speed ahead

Post  RknRusty on Sun Nov 02, 2014 6:51 pm

Well we didn't hit any trees today. Rolled out the 35' handle and hooked up the same Baby Streak. We put up a couple of flights. That little sucker is a handful on short lines but Ron and I were both up to the job, Each of us clipped a few weeds on one low pass, but the dang thing moves so fast you can hit the ground without ever realizing it was pointed down. It's kind of like FTL drive in the sci fi space movies, you pull the handle and wait and see where it pops back into the universe.
Big fun.
Rusty

I've had my eyes opened with Norvel engines. And BFS's for that matter. When I watched Rusty wrangle that little bird I was intimidated about the speed. An .061 with a 6x2 APC is plenty quick on 35' lines.

I lost sight of the plane a couple times going from upright to inverted. It really gets your blood pumping that's for sure.

You did it too. That means you've got The Right Stuff!

That was the FTL drive. Norvels have that. I forgot to warn you, sorry. Luckily it rematerialized in the air and pointed in a safe direction.
lol!

You forgot to mention my last loop. The engine was warning me, but I ignored it and went for it.

Those side stepping and back stepping moves I made to save it are only something a serious crash artist can perform.  lol!

Oh yeah, I forgot about that, it was a masterful save. I wasn't sure you were going to grab enough air for a second there, but then you almost out did me with a rolling landing. I secretly cheered when it nosed over. Lol

Just kidding.

Welcome to the new world.  When Soviet military contractors are out of work, they'll build a rocket for the capitalists!!!  Very Happy

Try a 5x3 or 5x4 --- that'll let it turn up and add some pizzazz to your life.

We should take the camera out next time. Maybe we could catch that flash of light when the FTL pops in and out. It almost looks like the afternoon sun.

Missed the trees, but what about the snow? SC got a little more than a dusting according to the news, but I would think it was well West towards the mountains..... Sounds like fun times there.

The snow was spotty. Some areas here in the midlands got up to 5" but we just got an icy mix at my house. It was gone by the time i got out of bed at 8:30am. My wife claims to have seen it. All I saw the rest of Saturday was a chilly wind and an inch of rain.
