Hi Friends

Not strictly RC flying - but related!

I have had a kind few notes from friends wondering why I have not posted anything for a while - have I given up or worse? Firstly, thanks for the concern - it is heart warming. What a geat community of folks. Well, it is not that I have given up my tricopters and planes and stuff, but I have been sinking all my "spare" time (ha ha) and money (even bigger ha ha ha) into learning to fly for real.

The story is on my blog - it was a gift from my best friend and wife as she knows it has been my ultimate dream since I was a kid. It is everything I hoped it would be:

So in the spirit of sharing the Blog is: www.crispyrat.com

Head's-up though - the Blog is not technical, it is meant to just to share what I learn, think and feel. I am a few months into it, but if you have an interest you can go back to day one as each post is probably shorter than this one!

BTW - I will say I do come come home and practice what I have learned using my RC planes. Spins, Stalls, proper flaring etc It is amazing how I can relate and see i. Especially Slow Flight techniques where the change in attitude is obvious and what how power truly does = altitude.

Anyway folks, that's it - I will be back crashing (small)things soon!

Cheers and thanks again for reaching out.

Go fly before it is too late!
