Shootering in the slope

An other day in the slope with my Caracho, today Carles Aymat has made his first flights with Shooter. In two weeks begins F3F season with F3F Club Contest. I'll see if I'm improving my performance in the slope. At midday wind stopped so we packed and came back at home.

Nearly I don't fly!!!

Today has begun with bad news... I've forgotten screw that hols T-Tail of my Altus!!! I've had to get used to the idea when Dani and Javier have helped me to find an alternative screw that let me fly at least some flights. And they did it!!!! Thank you very much guys!!!!

Again, the wind has changed of direction when we've finished to set the winches (I'm right with you Dani, next time we'll go to the south side of the field) so our launches has been very pour. We have been practicing duration flights, Dani with Radical, Javier with Warp, my father with Crossi and me with the best plane of the world ;-)

Dani showed us his new Altus (RDS version), now Walter is making Alberto's one and then will make mine with RDS system too.

Preparing F3F Season

Yesterday I began with my father to prepare F3F Season. In 2010 we are going to fly our Carachos 3.1, fantastic model for F3F discipline.

First contest will be on 14th February (not the best date for our wifes :-P) in "Coll de l'Illa", the most extrem slope you can imagine. We fly all rounds in a row so you just need to land one time.

My father wore Kevin Newton style glasses but I didn't feel any improve in his pilot skill.

I will post some photos later.

Today I have been in Santa Coloma Slope to fly my Caracho and prepare F3F season. Very cold weather and good wind, I used to fly rounds until I couldn't feel my hands :-P Later arrived Emilio Escobar with his sons, Hugo and Lucas. Hugo has been making very good flights with Masterpiece. Tomorrow more flights, with my father.

Walter Reist Seminar

It has been raining all day long, so we couldn't fly today :-( We have driven to Walter Reist workshop to learn how he makes our Altus,

Today has been working with Altus fuse for Dani. When he has finished we have been checking RDS system. The servo holes are small so it's a little bit dificult to install the servos (Next wings will have bigger holes)

Next plane will be for Alberto and then will come mine!!!!!!!!!
If you are looking for a nice, with good f3b skills & cheap plane (and you don't want to wait one year to get it) your choice is Altus ;-)
