    Figured since I finally got everything figured out if start one of these so here it goes! This morning at 11 I headed out to lama and the was some wicked wind and only Cody flew for the first hour but it calmed down and I got in 6 flights and my landings vastly improved. Also my new spinner looks great and really balances the plane out.

    I don't have any from this trip, my dad wasn't there much so he couldn't take pics and Cody was flying back to back with me. He has a few I think. Next time though.

    I have pics of his plane next to mine. We had a good day. T-Huck, as he labeled himself in his radio really picked up on the using throttle to control his planes descent to landing. He stuck 3 perfect 3 pointers, and the others were totally passable. We still have some dialing in to do- a couple washers of right thrust for a start. We need to do KE mixing, get some more elevator throw for 3D, and do something about his airflow around the engine. We tuned it for good spool up and a clean full throttle with no burble, but it died once just after touch down. I fattened up the bottom end a smidge, and it worked perfectly the next time out.

    A good day for the books, and everything came home in one piece. More or less...:rolleyes2: Lets just say T-Huck is going to have to turn his fuse upside down and shake a few loose parts out!

    Sounds like your heading in the right direction Tyler and have a great teacher too. Keep Cody out of trouble. He always needs a voice of reason. LOL

    It should be an easy fix. I'm going to try and cut a slot and insert some thin ply, or maybe drill a hole and use a toothpick to hold it together. Then patch the covering.

    On to bigger and better things! Sorry you won't have anything for the huckfest, but maybe I can let you get some stick time on one of my planes. If I have something running by then...
