    the ground in even less My final flight was perhaps the most dramatic culminating in two full loops interrupted once more by tree branches This proved a disastrous end though the plane miraculously managed to escape from the branches the propeller was nowhere to be found Thus ended flying for the day as well as the week After the disappointment wore off I went back to the web to watch more videos and research what others had done with the plane I found that there were 3 things that had contributed to a less than successful outing Wind space and wing Though the wind was pretty low that day it appeared that dead still air was really what I wanted as a raw beginner without an experienced pilot to help me Additionally more space free of aircraft eating trees was needed to allow for more altitude larger turns and simply much wider error margins Finally a number of people commented that the stock wing was rather fast and that a larger wing would slow down the plane and make it much more docile At the local hobby store I looked at the selection of foam wings and found a Sky Fly wing for about 12 that had a generous surface area more dihedral than the stock wing and simply seemed a bit sturdier than the stock unit I then cut out the rear center of the wing to fit it to the Phantom Still without a prop I did a number of hand tossed glides with the new wing to see how it felt and whether it was too nose heavy I did some more launches with the stock wing and thought I could see a bit of difference the stock wing felt twitchier than the big one and was more prone to rolling I also took the opportunity to tear out the ACT sensors as the prevailing opinion seemed to be that ACT caused more problems than it solved At home I started looking into better flying sites There are at least two local R C clubs but in order to use their fields you have to be an AMA member 50 year in addition to being a club member another 50 year and abide by 2 pages worth of rules and regulations I wasn t interested in shelling out almost twice the cost of the airplane itself just for the privilege of flying it so I spent time with Google maps to look for nearby wide open areas Local parks were the first place I looked and I first checked the ball field where I had made my first attempts to see roughly how big the place was to serve as a baseline comparison Unfortunately though parks are generally quite spacious they tend to have a great many trees A local factory had a sizable vacant weedy lot nearby and I wondered about the local soccer park as well I started a placemark map which I then shared

    the 40 year old men that love them see a Still it seemed about time to finally create a blog for several reasons a I set up a blog for my friend Lee and it would be kind of nice to be more familiar with Wordpress if he has questions or problems getting it to work b I needed a convenient place to write down nifty discoveries and problem solutions that I may have to refer back to later c I already had a proto blog of sorts back around 9 years ago when I was hacking Cuecats will post a link to that as soon as I find the drive I have it archived on So after much wailing and gnashing of teeth primarily due to figuring out how the heck to work with MySQL I still view databases of any sort with much disdain open source or not this thing finally seems to be running We ll see what sorts of grand sweeping thoughts of truly visionary insight I ll expound upon That or maybe just a halfway funny fart joke now and again No Comment Add Your Comment Your Comment Change mind Click here to cancel Name
