Had a bit of nice weather today and put a couple of batteries through my new flying wing. I wish it had been more, but I had a ton of stuff that had to be done today. By the time I was free, it was getting dark.

But at least me knees both work! Get better, sir!

When it's only nice at night, that's when you need lights.

Nothing like a slow flyer. They are really fun to fly in light winds. Nice vertical landing with no rollout.


I once parked a Cessna 152 in the air, with a strong headwind. I had no forward motion at all and could have backed up if I had dropped some flaps. My dad once took of in a J3 Cub, flew to the end of the runway, throttled back and backed down the runway and landed again. Of course there was a strong wind then also.


Keep up the good work with the scratch building. The "Slowly" looks great.

Heya Mark,
Nice Slowly build and flight.
I like Benny Goodman too,I grew up listing to him and all the Big Bands.
Haven't been flying too much lately, for one reason or the other.
I am building a scratch built zeek though and will be maidening if wind cooperates.

When the wind cooperates out here, flying feels like a moral imperative!

Been off to a rocky start this year. Jan- March was filled with windy days. Got a few flights in. We probably had one week out of 4 in April when it was raining or the wind was unbearable. May was much better. At least 2 good weeks of flying out of 4.

And now..... We have the beginning of the North Texas summer. 39C/103F 15-20mph Southerly (Crosswind) breeze. Looks like we'll be in the high 90's F for the foreseeable future. Of course, with the heat and humidity, we have to deal with Density Altitude. Motors become less efficient for sure. Sigh.

We just deal with it.
