Flew yesterday, first time in a LONG time....

Post  John's Pop on Sun May 03, 2015 11:26 am

My son and I flew some 1/2A C/L yesterday. First time in a long time. I can't remember the last time I laughed so much. Regrettably, I didn't get any video of the Man-Win mushing through any of its stunts, but I was just having too much fun to take much video. Next time we'll try to rig up the ol' hat-cam.

Actually, yes, I *do* fly in Alabama. Smile I live in LaGrange which is close to the line and I'm a member of the Valley R/C Flyers in Valley, AL.

How 'bout that? Smile You'll have to come by the field sometime. We're there pretty much every Sunday, weather permitting. We are at 32.852992, -85.162766, if that works in your GPS or on your phone. Just go to where that road dead ends and you'll see us down there. We're pretty much an RC club, but I'm going to start flying some CL down there.

I just watched the video. Pretty good. You can see the difference as John gets more comfortable and begins to relax his arm. Stiff at first, and then loosening up, beginning to get the feel of controlling rather than reacting.
Thanks for the flight report.
Rusty
