Cold, snowing, windy - streets are full of saltey spooge and Ra's over the hill yonder talking about floating around in the 300' fog bank and spinning electon's at night ! with his electric mosquito.

Man that really hurt !!!

My gasser's have a wee bit of dust, the bugs that I was so proud of on the blade's " the big bloody one's " have all but dryed up and blown away.

I even sniffed the tail pipe dreaming their was a wee bit of hot dog smell left in their. I even keep inspecting the bearing cases to see if the grease is in need of a little bit of topping.

Heck I'm even thinking of sacrificing my Reflex or tradeing down to a G-1 or whatever cartoon pong sim I can run, since none of my rig's can handle it. Just to get some kinda of fix !

It's worse than withdrawel !! I gota have some ! My Pico Z is almost shot and I've found my self pimping Raptor 30 V-1 parts. " and still looking " !!

Enough rant ! I'm just going to sit here with my MA SE in my lap and polish it with a clean diaper and dream of Ra coasting thru the cloud's. Maybe sit em on the floor and spin the blades a while . ??

PS. I wonder if I spray a little water on the blades and then shake a little pepper on em if I can get the bug scale effect back ??

Please Bring us a bit of good weather -

BOO- HOO!!!!
I know just how you feel there Grayeagle, You might try blowing your nose, before you try to get a hit from the tail pipe
Just sit there and stroke her for awhile, you will feel better,, Now if you had any b@lls, like the Xman, you would just start her up in the living room and give her a spin,, Thats what I do when I need a fix.. ,, (when the wifes not around that is,,) XGM/VGM

Bummed
Greyeagle---I know the situation, I was born and raised in N.Dak however I have been in Florida since 1968, today it was 83 degrees with a gentle breeze (3 mph) and a few clouds in the sky, the bad news is I didnt have time to fly the gas machine today, doing yard work.

Doug

by the way I have been in Charles City Ia.when it was 30 degrees below zero.

Ha!
I just came back from night flying my trex-450 1 mile down the street in my town park. Man it was super, dead calm, fog "clearing" as I could see the brightest stars up above, and close to 40 degrees. Was a bit warmer but when the fog is clearing the heat escapes up to the heavens.

Nevertheless, I flew all my battery packs (got 6 now) and watched her dance in the dark sky. You guys definately ought to get a little one like this for night flying - it looks awesome in the pitch black night. I don't have a video from here, but here is one that my wife shot in Port Antonio, Jamaica back in November:

Its gonna rain again tomorrow and then turn to snow overnight, so this was my chance and I had to take it! On a side note Greyeagle, how about you do some research and find an indoor place to fly. I recently acquired one locally here and have held one funfly on the 31st and having the 2nd on the 11th. Take a look at the events calander above -- its a great idea and you can get yourself a little electric and fly it in there no matter what the weather is doing outside! For the 11th, looks like temps will be in the teens at night so its a good thing to draw some people in to fly with me!

Wow! I thought you lived right on my neighbourhood!

Maybe there is a parallel black-worm hole that intrinsically connects our two cities!

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

Incidentally
Why don't you just dress up warmly in layers with long underwear and such and go fly? I wear the brown jersey gloves which are thin enough to fly with and on cold days I use the 1005 rear muffler as a hand warmer. Fly for 5 minutes, land, grab the muffler with my gloves -- oooh, that nice toasty feeling -- and take off again for another 5. I may land 3 to 4 times in a tank to rewarm my hands, the rest of my body is usually pretty warm with layers, a hat and ear muffs.

Can't do that with electrics as there is no heat, so I gotta fly them when the temps are above freezing...

Ha, ha, ha, this makes me laugh; typical snowbird. You couldn’t wait to get to Florida for all the nice weather in the winter time and what do you do with it? Work your balls off because it is too damn hot and muggy in the summer. What did you gain?

Come on Grey, what are you building? Summer will be here before you know it and you might need a spare. Don’t waste your time or you will be sorry…

Winter is busy here today as well...!
Last night started out as snow, before you know it accumulation started, and this morning woke up to mist with about 4 inches of snow. Went out, cleaned the pile and just before I got done it started to rain, and then it poured all day long. Coming down in buckets this afternoon I looked at my rain guage and I got 3.08 inches of rain since this morning. Finally back to mist this evening but now I hear the sump pump working hard trying to keep the basement from going under. I had issues with water in my basement back in the 90's and I dug a trench all around the perimeter and put pipes in and crushed rock, then resealed the whole thing with 140 bags of concrete 60lbs each from home depot - yeah, crazy project, took me about a year to complete it. Anyway the pump runs for 25 minutes every hour now, and it can pump 2000 gallons an hour -- so I'm pulling like 800 gallons an hour outta there to keep the place from getting wet...

All this and now I'm thinking of taking the big 1005 gasser out in the back yard for some test flying...I redid some generator wiring to power up the video downlink / camera servos on the mount and was curious to see it all work. I wonder...since its dark and quiet will the neighbors turn their heads? I went outside to check for rain and I can see them in their family room watching some tv... You can see my house in my gallery to guage their proximity...!

There goes the sump pump again, 7:25pm kicked on -- I think its getting more frequent!

Dang Snow !!!
Saw your Pic's and just absolutley great ! I hope I can follow in your tracks !

Snow ??? Your snow is what I wipe off my windshield every morning / noon and nite! ANd dang cold and windy ! Were talking -8 to -12 actual " not that trumped up wind chill stuff " and winds 20 to 30 mph at times.

I'm outa room for places to put it and the Binford X -2008 snow thrower cant pitch it any higher or farther.

Heck out here we have his and her snow throwers !

Keep a close Eye on the sump, even if you have to stay home, if it gets real bad think about a back up or a contigincy plan before if it get's dicey. Pray for it to get cold and slow down the drainage.

What your getting is what hammered us about 4 days ago and theirs another comming in tonight ! Which means in another 4 days ----

Maybe I'll get you a pic so you can feel sorry for my gassers.

The snow!
Take your gassers, put them outside on top of the huge snow bank, and that a picture for me!

You got a link to this binford snow blower? Trying to find it on the net but its not easy! I got an Ariens 7HP myself, plenty for this part of the country
