Winter flying in Michigan

Posted 03-03-2008 at 02:35 PM by ltfdrescue

Hello All!

This is my first Blog!

The winter has been exceptionally hard here in michigan. They do have funfly's in golf domes weekly here but are usually on thursday nights(when I work) or you have to drive across the state.

This is a video of probably my 6th or 7th flight from Sat 3/1.-Temp-20 degree's, winds 5-10mph.

Anyways... Happy Flying and Hurry Up Spring!

Remember the first time you were going kiss a girl? The first time were going to get behind the wheel of your dad's car and solo on a short trip to the 7-11? or Possibly, the first time you interviewed for that dream job?

Got that feeling in your head? Yeah? Well that's just what I was feeling yesterday when I was ready to put my Trex 450se into the air for the first time.

wind sucks!

ok.. for you guys that can fly in damn near any weather bite me I'm still learning so to me.. wind = sucks. Cobra1002, gatherman and I went out yesterday to burn some electrons and it was a beautiful day... sunny... just a few clouds in the sky and the winds were dead calm.. until we got ready to fly that is... once we got to the field the winds picked up... a gentle 4mph wind is no biggie... but this was 5mph gusting to about 15mph...and it kept changing directions on us.

Got a new Canopy

Posted 02-29-2008 at 06:24 AM by aussiemick (Micks corner)

My new Agloco Canopy from Canomod arrived today.

Now I'm going to have to get a set of the Red (orange) landing skids.

Oh well I'm sure there is something else I will need!

Hopefully I will get more than a few flights out of this canopy.

Asking for help

Here are some simple tips that I hope will help people asking for help more efficiently on Internet forums such as HeliFreak. Hey, there might even be a life lesson in here somewhere...

In order to get the best help possible - and fast, it is important that the...
