View Full Version : November flying

Flying low over miles of harvested fields just never will get boring to me. I was out flying past dark and was really enjoying the pure thrill of it all. Saw several deer...they just kind of flopped their tales at me....I tried to get a picture..but missed them.
I am looking forward to flying all winter over these fields covered with snow. Its hard to beat a warm cabin... :D

Keep rubbin it in ,Stan!
My towers are done. I hope to test longer blades soon. I'll post under" rotorblades".

Chris: Your new towers look great. I need to reconfigure my teeter stops somehow.
I will stop commenting on my warm cabin.... :D . I will take the doors off today...........NOT............. :D
Happy flying and I am looking forward to seeing some of your gyro flights.

I may not have a heated cabin... but at least I will have a wind screen this winter :)
Hope to be joining you in the air shortly. Got the engine mounted tonight, had to move it back 1" due to oil injection pump. Now I get to hang test again! Still have to make all electrical connections, mount and adjust carbs, then oil injection. Hope to do engine break-in and hang test Friday(day off work that day).
Tim O. and I are in the same boat. But the windscreen leaks a lot of air in the winter, makes it kind of chilly when airborne. Maybe Santa will be good to me and deliver that electric flight suit I've never had time to buy.
Keep up the pics, hope to see some with white stuff on the ground.

I hope your work goes well Mark.

Mark: Sounds like your Air Command is coming together. Glad to hear the progess you are making.
When I had my Bensen gyro years ago...I flew during the winter in a real warm John Deere snowmobile suit. It wasnt too bad for a half hour flight. Adrenalin will keep you warm for awhile. :D :D Handpropping that Mac with the heavy snowsuit on was a little cumbersome though. :eek:
Happy building and flying to you and Cathy... :)

Tim,I found one good way of keep'n warm on -6c mornings in the ferel was to have a big feed of rare ,fresh beef the night before.The freezer suit I ware when ever its 20c or less quickly fills with warm gas.[solong as you don't do any virtical decents you won't smell it.]
