Tried 6S on the B machine which actually turned out pretty good. 8 minute flights of gentle 3D at 1140 RPM, will definately try that again on a less windy day.
Had a cell go one one of the Zippys, so had to dispose of that pack. I got over 150 decent flights out of it though.
Felt very disconnected on the initial flights after 2 weeks of not flying, but got back into into after the slow flights.

The flying is coming on nicely. Worked on some low piro flipping and did the usual messing around. I tried a couple of the F3N sets but it was just horrible. I need to spend some time on setup to get it right.
I flew Phil's 470L which was actually pretty good. The skid angle was immediately obvious after takeoff but not noticable in flight. The canopy is pretty wide which makes it quite easy to orient. I've changed my mind and I think they're pretty good, although for new stuff I think the speed and visibility could make it harder than learning on a 700.

Woke up later than I wanted but made it to the field by 7:40. Had the keys for the genny which was nice. Spent the morning exchanging flights with Bob before everyone else arrived.
The flying was OK. I don't have any goals for the year and the flying seems to reflect that. Mostly just messing around. not doing anything in particular. I really need to get my arse in gear.

Misty, then blue skies and sun, followed by grey and dark. Had a pretty good session, but the cold just went through me, even with the mitt and thermals. Sunday should be better.
Oh, finally got rid of the old Opti 30 pack. I haven't used it for a while, tried it today and was getting sag within the first minute.

Started off at LMAC. Was a bit busy with planes, left early.
Wasn't sure where to go after that. Felt like a bit of company but still with opportunity to fly big, so made the drive through to MK. Turned out to be perfect. Sun was out, fairly warm and no wind. Just myself, Dave and Phil flying helis. Flew Kev's quad again and crashed it. Good session.

Met Paz in the morning at MK. Hoped he could get to see some of our better fliers but no-one arrived for ages.
After a week of sim instead of IRL flying, I struggled to get connected to the heli. It worked itself out after almost 10 flights and I got the connection back and then I felt I'd got a nice progression for the week.
Drizzled lightly most of the day, not a great session.
