Just fly for fun

Jan 05, 2012 No Comments by

I suppose I am spoiled as I live on 20 acres and have my own flying field.  I do my best to keep planes ready to fly and the other day I looked up and saw my trusty eFlite Alpha 450.  I grabbed a couple of batteries and walked to the runway.  It had been a few days since I last flew and I thought I would be rusty, but I was fine.  Overall, it was just a fun time doing touch and goes and some aerobatics.  I guess somethings you never forget, but I did get some practice in on my landings.  I had a calm evening so I was able to do landing to both ends of the runway.  I have always been more comfortable flying a left hand pattern but I seem to be getting and more comfortable with right hand patterns.

It was just fun to get out and fly.  The Alpha can handle a large range of batteries, so when you shove in a 3200 mAh pack you can fly for a long time.  Go flying!
