Watched that man perform many flights last fall. Very impressive to say the least!

Tried giving him some pointers but he kept brushing me off!

He puts on a heck of show in the hucking arena as well.

For me, 700 wasn't a high enough number for that maneuver!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I never struggled much with take offs. The landings kept my repair skills in check. Kinda went like this for a while. 1 good landing and 3 bag recoveries.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Take-offs: optional
Landings: mandatory

The funny thing (for me anyway) is that in F3A the Take-off and landing is scored. Not with IMAC!

Jeff, a three bag landing just requires a little more buffing! When you can put the wood from a 25% plane landing into a Glad sandwich baggie, now thats a wreck!

Humility rule #1: Frequently the ego is writing cheques the abilities can't cash! (Ask me how I know).
