Cabin Fever Fly

Hi All,

I had a blast last weekend.
For the 16th year in a row, I have made 'some excuses' to go and visit my great friend Frank.
When he moved out to Apsley, (2hr drive) to take care of his ailing Mother, he invited the 'black sheep' of the old Milton Black Sheep club to go Ice Fishing.
We did icefish, but brought a plane with us...
Over the years...
Flying R/C .40/.25glow in all kinds of weather is much more fun than Icefishing.
No disrespect to Icefishers...
We just 'icefish' the freezer at the IGA now. $10 for a Lake of the Woods Lake Trout...Priceless !

This years' weather was solid ice. After 10yrs of knee deep snow and 'floats work' conditions....
Saturday aft/eve we had plenty of beers and got the planes ready...

Sunday dawned, and it was Glorious...

-2C, Sunny, dead calm. (First time the windsock has never moved !)

The planes with wheels were un-take-off-able. (Weird but true !)
We hand launched them and flew great... No Kidding, wheels are useless in dead calm conditions on smooth ice. Try It !

Frank's Skates (Yes, it was the first time we flew off of Skates!) worked perfectly.

My 1/16th Lexan skiis took a beating. Somehow, I was smart/drunk enough Sat. eve to use a Drywall Screw as a tailskid ! ! !
I could hold up elevator and almost stop on idle !

Flying is Fun.

The friends, I keep and meet... Is The Reason...

Take care,
Have fun,

Re: Cabin Fever Fly

Wow. Great story Cross-Check. I'm glad to hear that you and your buds have turned it into an annual event.

Your last line sums it up for all of us...

Re: Cabin Fever Fly

That sounds like a heck of a good time. I like fishing, but I love flying models. I am the same as you, if comes to a choice, I would fly and hit the store for the fish.
Good stuff and great post. Got ant pics for us?
