    Decided to join the fun...

    I haven't had much time to fly the bigger stuff lately, but every week I've been getting countless flights on my DW Yak jr. Here's some pics from this morning.... 4 flights down... Well over 1,000 flights on the plane. I'm going to have to get a new one soon as it's starting to show some wear...

    p.s. trying to take a good picture of yourself flying is hard....

    It's lookin like I might get a chance to head to the field and put a few flights on my Extreme Flight Extra this afternoon.... first time I've had a chance to fly anything other than a foamie since the Nall... (Vegas and moving got in the way...)

    My friend Kirby and I went flying... I got three flights on my 78" Extra and he got three on his Panzl before we both has some engine issues... Here's some pics.... He didn't get many pics of it, but I had my rudder within 6" of the ground for 4 or 5 minutes straight... not bad for the 10'th flight of the plane... especially since I hadn't flown gas since I gave my Edge away before I went to Afghanistan last year.... All the foamie flying has paid off in retaining some skill. Once I move, I hope to be able to get back into flying a lot, but I can't say for sure until I get there and get settled....

    Anyways, here's some pics:

    Thanks for the compliments! He did a great job! I can't wait to fly it!

    Actually, he sent me some pics of his 3W as I was going to paint the roadrunner scheme myself... But do to moving, I ran out of time.. So Alan(painter) used them to create a new scheme for the plane.

    I can't wait!

    I'll be there shortly. I start driving on the 17'th. Please pass on the details of the club when you can! After I find somewhere to live, I will be looking for a place to get my 3D fix!
