Brian, Alt, & Glen

I showed up at OSP around 7:00 and Brian was setting up. After he launched, Alt showed up and after tinkering with his sparkplug for awhile he was off too. Glen showed up and got into the air as well. They reported it was a little bumpy, but great flying. I'm so jealous. Can't wait to get back in the air. All went well until Glen called Brian saying something about sparkplug wires and props not mixing well, but he landed safely and Brian went to pick him up.

Shake, Rattle, and Roll

Chris and I decided to go fly Sunday afternoon at the Taylor airport. I called Travis and he joined us. It started off a little bumpy, but on the way back, it was cool and smooth.

We headed toward OSP and checked out Travis' house on the way, then we flew by one of Travis' friends, flew by Chris' mother-in-law and then headed back to Taylor. We were in the are about 1hr, 15m.

At OSP, Tim and Kyle were on the ground, so we flew by them. Kyle had his new target out on the ground.

All in all, it was a nice day to fly.

I think Travis said something about rolling his wheels on the trees! J/K

I love this photo. On the ground you would never see the beauty.

This one too!

We got the attention of the Taylor Fire Department. They were very interested.

See you next time.
