Well, in case no one looked at the weather today, it was a great day for flying in January! Nice calm day and mostly sunny as the day went on. Some regulars showed up to take advantage of the nice day as well as a new member (Steve). Today saw a maiden flight from Mike Sobinovsky and his new Pilot Rc 74″ Slick with a fresh new EME 35cc gas engine. He put a good few tanks through it to get the engine broken in and it was already starting to sound better by days end.
Our new member Steve brought his autonomous electric predator plane out (see vid) and managed to get two successful flights in, completely hands free. His computer/GPS/Telemetry setup was impressive and was surely something you don’t see every day. All in all everyone got in a good number of flights without any crashes with a close call from Dave Karash with a finger slip on the sticks on the Oxy!! (see vid)
We hope to see more people out soon!
