A Great Day to be Flying

I have been doing a lot of R/C flying lately. Tuesday I was in Pueblo for various reasons and I had two planes with me. I was the only one there at the Sky Corral field and I was a kid in the candy store. I flew the heck out of Das Ugly Stik and the HK Spitfire (which I later brought to the Sky Corral meeting for Show and Tell). Then yesterday I got brave and flew Das Ugly next to my home and got in several flights. I flew combat with a hawk who thought Das Ugly was encroaching on his territory.

Today I arrived at our FCRCC field with my OS 55AX powered Stinger II. It is a really great sport flyer and a bit of a hot rod. After a couple of flights Kenny showed up with his Corsair, a great looking plane on the ground and in the air. See pix below.

I had the opportunity to use the new flight stand recently built by Bobby Bellino. It is a real luxury to use with all its space and newness. Great job Bobby.

After a while Larry and Garry showed up with planes. Larry got in some quality buddy box time in assisted by Kenny. Garry demonstrated some smooth landings that he has been perfecting. I left after my 5th flight of the day when the 55AX started running sour.
