Winter is coming. What are your plans for the upcoming non- flying season?

Heck in the winter my entire hay field becomes a runway, no more trying to spot land on my postage stamp runway! Will have to hanger the retract models though!

Keep those Darksuckers empty, so it easier to see.

I'm going to finish a model that I started several years ago but keep finding other things and planes to do instead.

This time for sure because I purchased the engine - a Saito 182T FS, got a new set of plans, and worked out most of the scale details that I hope to incorperate. Something I've been just dreaming about for far too long! So, yep, I going to just hide away in the shop and focus on this one scale project!

Radios used: Spektrum DX6i

You need to add a couple more:
-- build a new workshop with more space for storing all the models
-- get ahead on the honey-do list before Christmas and Easter

Work my a$$ off trying to do the "sow's ear to silk purse" routine with this country property, fly off the lake on skis (if it freezes before January 1st this year) and spend a three or four weeks in Arizona and California using up some time share points.

If I have time in there I might even resurrect a carcass or two from my airplane boneyard and get them airworthy again.
