Wednesday Flying Report – 8/30/17

posted in: Gone Flying | 0
Ed, Gene, Art and I flew this morning at the sod farm.  The three of them were flying electric RES planes.  They had fun, finding lift on some flights.
I brought out one of the Stream DLG that I bought from Wayne.  The transmitter program that I created using deflections and mixes Wayne gave me worked right out of the box.  Just a few clicks of elevator trim here and there and a little more elevator for initial launch zoom.  Other than one flight with pilot error (confused right and left when a ways downwind leading to flirting with the sprinkler but getting straightened out to land a long ways off) flying the new to me plane went well.
I want to paint the Stream’s underside wing tips a different color/pattern than the tops so I’ll be less easily confused.  Right now they are identical except for the top has one tip painted and the bottom has both tips painted.
