    Well.......I thought nice weather was finally getting here but yet another "SharkNado" wants to come my way :face-palm: (TD16 slated to be at least a cat 1 by Saturday).

    Going up tomorrow because the weekend is NOT looking so good :concern:.

    The weather guessers (meteorologists) missed it again today, the forecasted 7 mph wind for this morning was actually 17. Most of the Sunday diehards were there anyway, though I think we did more jaw flapping than flying.
    I did get one flight on Miss Moana. I need to lean it out a tad, but it ran awesome other than being a bit rich on the top end.

  3. The weather people here were very wrong too... I ended up only getting one flight each in before 15 gust 20 kts of direct crosswind came to stay.[​IMG]

    The flip side of switching from days to nights is a 24hr period off which directly equated to more flying time!! Got 6 flights in, 5 of which were on the laser!! That means about 1.3 hours of in air time. In a 2hr window before work! Laser has excellent precision, doesn't flop around like my slick does when it's slow, but a very comfortable flying platform. Need to teach it how to do some high energy moves with the rudder, guessing it's because the fuselage is so tall it's a very effective air brake during high energy flops.

    Anybody have a good source for teflon tubes of various sizes for an exhaust extension for my jtec Pitts on the DA35? And ways to keep them on? I would love to see it a couple inches longer especially if I want to try smokin.

    Juneau - Most military guys go to Anchorage, which is a four hour ferry boat ride to Haines and a 750 mile drive from here! LOL - no roads in or out of Juneau, only escape is boat or plane.
    I could use more 3D pilot buddies here!! I am the only one here frolicking the ground with my rudder!

    Lol ok. I can't remember exactly what part he is in but I know there is a club close to him that has a bunch of 3D pilots.

    There are some sweet fields up in Anchorage and Fairbanks. Without a doubt I am the only 3D guy at my club, only one other guy can hover so I doubt it is here! LOL
