Frank v B

A busy night for training.  Came early to fly my own two planes (didn't happen) and prep for training.

New members David, Tony, Omar and Victor showed up to see their trainers fly.  Two were able to get stick time on their planes and two had them maidened but we had the usual Spektrum buddy box problems.
New member George B. showed up, told us he could fly, he did and we immediately conscripted him to instruct.  Thank you George.  Kind of you.

Thanks to Paul and Mark for plane prepping duties. Frustrating when transmitters from the same family cannot communicate between themselves.
