Well I said I was gonna wait but I just couldn’t resist. Man this thing is a hoot. Even got my first dork out of the way. Got nine batts charged and ready for my lunch break tomorrow.

Had fun flying the Crack Beaver with a buddy and his Crack beaver. Was all fun and games until I pulled instead of pushing when in an inverted harrier. 20 minutes and some foamtac tonight will have it good as new.

Also for the first time I tried to fly a glider. Did not have much luck with it. I am not sure why but this thing is a bear to fly. I let another club member try it and he had the same problems I did. I'm hoping it is because my CG is to far forward but it will have to wait till next year now.

I will say from what I have learned flying gliders is they fly a lot different than a normal airplane.
