First Flight 2004

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Well gang, got in my first flight of 2004 today and I think "braggin' rights" of being the first member of the "Sault Modellers" (Sault members anyway) to have an "outdoor" flight

Overcast but relatively mild +5C at "noon"(but droping fast)' wet snow and a "gusty" wind out of the"NW"..

Well I "Fired up" my trusty Caprice(Hobby Lobby ARF) (on skis) with its 25 TT engine and with the help of 3 official club members (for braggin' rights clarification), set her on the snow into the wind, hit the throttle and was "airborne" in 10 feet.

"Well I'll be"..That 4lb. plane bounced all over the sky like it was being chased by the"devil".. After 5 min. of flight and "many" offers to the "other 3" to "have a go" on the sticks(with no takers) I set up for a "turbulant" landing.. I set her down 20 feet in front of me but as I throttled up to taxi back the skis stuck to the snow and she "nosed over" ....Well it was only a "short wet walk" to bring 'er back

Now I can get back to some "serious" building and wait for "some nicer weather" (Feb. or Mar.) before I get the craving for another "fix"
