Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Wow great couple of days in florida.
First 35cc edge flying great. So manuverable it can do everything you can through at it. Sold two of these at the field the first day. Came back to get money, flew and sold one more with engine. Ordered them all up and they are on the way to florida bahaha

Went up with the glider today. Someone gave me a battery to fly with. Flew up found a thermal and gained 1200 feet in that thermal. The best part was at 1000 feet the other glider and 300 sea birds joined me. What a site to see two gliders 3m and 4 meters both red disappearing over and over again as mostly white birds circled with the gliders. Most people at the club stopped to watch us fly these gliders with the birds.
My new found friend got nervous and changed his pattern and came screaming out of the flock of birds like a flaming chicken. He lost 300 or 400 feet as he lost orientation and did not know he was flying upside down when he pulled up. I never had so much excitement on a 28 min glider flight.

Ha, kind words.
Hey I stopped at Great Hobbies today. Ran into your "Dad". Had an hour visit. I see why they have him on piece work.
What a great hobby. The best part is all these fun guy's can really fly these toy airplanes.

Do you stare at men?


Ha-ha-ha It just seemed like an obvious question.
