BJ- your cheque is in the mail   ;D
Bruce- I have this visual of Andy shaking his computer.  Mita is probably looking at him thinking it is about time to send him to the big house.
Andy- you are obviously easily impressed. ;)

Even without the flight, it was worth the trip to the field.  We solved all the problems facing the world.

The photos Bruce posted looked like it was a beautiful day... with a bit* of crosswind. 

Frank

* a lot of "bit'!!

Hi Frank:

Here are two links to the video I took on Wednesday night.

They are called "Father Frank Versus Mother Nature" - sorry but I missed the takeoff.
They are "shared videos" on my dropbox. Hope that they are "viewable".

Some really nice flying by "Father Frank" who decided to take on "Mother Nature".

Video 1 (.mov version)

Video 2 (.m4v version)
https://www.dropbox.com/s/nxot9d751ybuj6r/FatherFrankVsMotherNature2.m4v?dl=0

Regards,

Richard

Richard,

Thanks for the video.  It looks insane from the peanut gallery.  That's a 5 pound airplane being tossed around.  I don't recall it being that scary.  Maybe 100% concentration simplifies everything.
No wonder they were looking for brown skid marks on the back of my pants after the landing. 8)

There is a reason they call Nature a "Mother". ;D

@Richard_RC_Guy that video is awesome!

What a session to miss! :(

Unfortunately the next few weeks have me on call for this boring software thing I built and deployed into my clients production environment. :(

I may be missing more Wednesday evening sessions..

Any chance I could come out on a Saturday morning? :D

Hey Chris, 

You've got to help us understand why you would build boring software!! 8)

Hope you recover soon!

HA!
What I find exciting and what would pay my bills are unfortunately not the same thing at the moment...
