                Gunny, Any chance you have spare brake pad sets? Happy to take 1 or 2 if you do.
                Corn status report: follows the expression... Knee High by the fourth of Ju-ly. (so, field is huge with soft cushy low green all around)

                      • Tough weather today, cloudy and ceiling at about 800 feet. Yet we had a good time practicing takeoffs and landings. Much abuse of the corn field, and a number of use have some repair work to do.

                        I'll have to miss what is promising to be the better of the two days tomorrow, so, thanks to Len for the invite. See you all soon.

                        • Thanks to Len and Scott for the "pattern" tows. Low ceiling and crosswinds made for good day to practice landings and takeoffs. Unfortunately as Conio mentioned some of us need to shop time. Still a good day with friends.

                          To back up the insanity video (nice job), here are a few stills of the moment.

                          • Gunny's expression pretty much says it all.

                            • Yes, great Fun had by all. Thanks for all the Tows Len and Scott. Good seeing and flying with everyone.

                              Maiden of the Rodellmodel ASK-21 went well. Plane is very easy to fly and thermal. A little fiberglass, epoxy, and tlc will have it nicely back on-line after a topsy-turvy crosswind launch.

                              • Oops. After four years without so much as a scratch, the wing finally gave out. It wasn't even all that hard of a landing (sorry no footage). Just super glad it failed on the ground & not 1000 feet up. Should be an easy repair...
