      Today Hoppy (Chris) was the weatherman making the call to fly and whilst it wasn’t prefect it definitely was an improvement on my last couple of calls.

      It was a bit chilly starting out at about 6deg @ the field and slowly creeping its way up to a max of 12 but at least the wind was generally only light (but lazy & cold) and got even lighter after lunch.

      We had 7 pilots today with Chris, Gerald, Moose, Kermit, Stephen, Ross & me.

      Kermit got off to a bad start & bent his “Black Boy” so it will be off to the repair shop for him. Moose managed a couple of decent flights with his Tundra until a bit too hard landing loosened his landing gear and put him out of action as well.

      Stephen went close to another mishap with a parked car after finding his rebuild plane had far too little aileron control to be successful. After a tweak on the radio limits he was back in the air and had successful flights for the rest of the day.

      Ross had a couple of flights with his U.5 (Black Bix 3 Spy Plane) but did not have the FPV gear reinstalled so only had limited time in the air.

      Chris was flying several different planes today inc the Skipper in and around the trees (video to follow later) and also his Warthog that finished is last flight on one engine only after throwing one of the EDF fans out into the middle of the field. As luck would have it we managed to find the part (bright orange colour helped) & no doubt it will soon be repaired. He also managed several nice long flight with his X450 VTOL plane with a camera attached for at least one of them.

      My Bix 2 Sport is still in the repair shop (almost finished) so I opted to fly the 2M Prowler FPV & give the new Visor X – Little Pilot VR headset a good workout.

      Two successful flights of around 10 minutes each & I was duly impressed with the FPV headset & the Prowler in the sometimes rather bumpy conditions.

      Here are a few videos from today

        How it happened, according to the Frog. Back to his old tricks again. Never ever let the truth stand in the way of a good and entertaining story. Bravo Mr Frog.

      My take on the day:

    • #5226

      “MY TAKE ON THE DAY by BAD ANGEL”  Beautiful work  once again by the bad angel production company  a  pleasure to watch an  see the flight line gang at their worst now with the moose back it will get even more uncontrollable  it was so pleasant way back  then  but times change and riff raff slip in an there goes the tranquility of the place   ohh well  at least bad angel has quietened down now that the moose is back  an I for one missed our beloved president today  he was sorely missed                   KERMIT LA FROG 2ic IN WAITING

        Well said Frogget yeah having the Moose back  has sort  of cramped my style a tad but the BA shall return to his mean ld ways when you least expect it…👹👹👹👹👹👹👹👹👹👹👹

      Without the President the peanut gallery discipline has gone out the window.

      • #5229

        Totally agree Hoppy but it’s all caused by a totally undisciplined and uncouth Frog. B A has spoken for and on behalf of my dearest president for life… I just love my hero president to bits even if he has skinny legs and rather bright socks, geez that reminds me I must get some..😎

    • #5228

      TO TRUE HOPPY   so sad to see all the good work out the window now that that fur thing is back  by the way black boy is now repaired  after his forced landing  with minimal damage  due to brilliant flying ……. lookin quite spif

    • #5236

      MR BAD ANGEL SIR  I’M more concerned with the smooth operation of the flight line gang than noticing you two doing disrupting things  THAT is what our president is looking for in a 2IC  an I do it well because I have studied under the greatest leader the world has seen OUR LIVING GOD  president IAN the magnificent  hence the reason I’m so good   one last itty bitty thing   dear BA  I will get our president nice thick bright coloured socks first

    • #5247

      At least the Moose has a thick fur coat   bad weather is no problem for him ay   an even BAD ANGEL with the furnace of hell burning under him  shouldn’t be a problem  for him either  just us mere mortals have to put up with it  not fair
