Today I got to do what I have been wanting to do for a while. The stars aligned and I was able to take the jet out to the Yuma Aeromodellers Contreras field and got in a couple of flights.
I had we bit of difficulty getting it to start until I realized the problem was a set up issue with the transmitter. Once that was sorted out, it stared up without issues and flew nicely.
The first flight was pretty tame as I haven't flown it since Sept. but the second flight felt much more comfortable. This aircraft is capable of speeds over 200 MPH yet slows down and lands nice and slow. I only got 2 flights in as the wind was starting to get a bit strong and everyone was leaving.
This evening Chris cooked up the roast we bought yesterday. Oh my God! That was the nicest roast we have had in a lllooonnngg time. Even better is we have enough left overs to last for another 2 or 3 meals. Along with the roast, were baked potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and french cut beans.
