Great flying weather the last couple days allowed us to get a lot done. Highlights include;
Jeff from Chicago and Brent from Milwaukee both made there first flights Saturday morning at the park by Oconomowoc. It was nicely overcast so we could fly right up to lunchtime. Jeff went on to make two more well executed flights before we quit for the day.
Mike S made several practice take off runs through the park in anticipation of flying soon.
Ken and Matt W also met us in Oconomowoc and did some flying fortunately. Fortunate because Brent actually borrowed Ken’s gear to make his first flight after nicking a couple lines on a missed earlier launch attempt.
After that I met Josh C at the local school field and we worked on his wing handling until sunset. He improved tremendously. Next for him is a trip to the sledding hill!
Friday evening Josh K and I took a long cross-country flight from the airport to Lake Kegonsa. Along the way I dropped into the Madison Speedway and made a low lap around the racetrack, probably, one of the slowest laps ever made there.
Friday morning at sunrise I met Chuck and Reon for some early flights. Reon busted out 9 flights and truly mastered the landing n. Unfortunately, Chuck had a mechanical issues with the Air Conception. A glazed drive belt caused the propeller to slip at high RPMs meaning he couldn’t get enough push from his machine to take off. Which is too bad because he was doing everything correctly and was only grounded because of the slipping belt. He will be back with a new belt installed soon and will certainly be flying then.
