Re: Who is flying what & where this week? 2011-7/10-7/16

Hi guys. Flew Sunday at Busse Woods, blk/red 1.5 sle 3-wrap and some home-mades; Monday, same place, same, same. Tried flying Tuesday morning at Turner Park in Roselle. Wind was lame and I decided I need an ultralight/indoor rev for those x*##@&% days, so I went home and built one. Took almost s...

Re: Who is flying what & where this week? 2011-7/3-7/9

Flew every day this week, mostly at Busse Woods and Turner Park in Roselle. I'm liking the dependable winds at Busse more and more. Joined in the fun at Greene Valley (why do they call a 190 foot pile of garbage a "valley"?), tight area, good wind. Used to fly RC gliders, might give slope ...

Re: Who is flying what & where this week? 2011-7/3-7/9

Went to Milwaukee on Sunday, lame winds dwindling from 5-ish down to 0 by 5pm, people walking all over the roped-off area all day. Flew blk/red 1.5 sle, zephyr, and some home-made. Managed to have fun despite the "obstacles".

Re: What did you fly this week? 2011 - June 26 - July 2nd

Flew Saturday at Turner Park in Roselle, blk/red 1.5 sle and a semi-homemade. Winds were sw at about 5, squirrely as usual at that location. Don't why I keep going back there, except that its close to home. That makes me 6/7 for the week.

Re: What did you fly this week? 2011 - June 26 - July 2nd

Flew at Turner Park in Roselle. The park is surrounded by mature trees and houses which helped cut down the strong winds a bit. Tweaked the bridle on the blk/red rev 1.5 sle & got it pretty much in tune. Flew and made bridle adjustments on a couple of home-made quad lines, and a New Tech Skycool...

Re: What did you fly this week? 2011 - June 26 - July 2nd

Oh, by the way, the flying field at Busse woods is really big, maybe 600x200 yards, always mown, with 600x200 yards unmown south of that & connected, no fences, mature trees around the perimeter at least 150 yds to the nearest. Winds are pretty reliable most of the time.
