28 May 2016 - Just a quick video clip from the short time I spent at the field today. I wanted to play with some different video software and maybe get some planes on video that weren't just mine. If anyone wants to download the stills of their planes to use as a computer wallpaper here they are.
30 April 2016 - These are just some pictures from the Spring Fly-In at the club. The weather was threatening thunderstorms but they held out at least while I was there. I can't wait for the next one. Visit the Campobello Flyers Website for more information on the club. Good flying, good planes, and great people you can't have a better day than that.
12 March 2016 - This is the first time this plane has actually flown since 2012. It was having deadstick issues in 2012 as well. Prior to that since it was first flown in 2008 it had always run like a top. I cleaned the carburetor and replaced the clunk line in the tank and thought I had the problem solved. Clearly I have not. It seems to me that it is running lean on the high end and overheating. The plane is repairable although the wheel pants are a loss as is the carbon fiber landing gear. When she's flying though she is a Beaut!
Stay tuned to see the continuing saga of this plane and it's suddenly finicky engine.
06 March 2016 - After having moved south in 2013 it took me a bit to get back into flying. I had managed to bring three planes with me but I was getting the itch to build a new one last year. After the great success with the Aeroworks 300 60-90 size I was definitely up for another similar sized Aeroworks. Then I saw they had the Yak 54 on sale, perfect! I have been meaning to get a Yak 54 for some time. I had a brand new OS FS-95V four stroke engine already that seemed would fit the bill.
