    Yesterday didn’t suck!

    [ame="https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wro_eDKGRqE"]Proton Departing with Smoke[/ame]

    These guys got some marginal coaching yesterday as it was my first time attempting the job. Smizo flew the snot out of his first time in the box. His only coaching prior was video analysis from “Grassroots”. Sandifer has a solid eye apparently. I’ll post more when I can figure out how to upload some Facebook photos.

    I read that and thought, "Holy Shnizel! How does Eric know I am at my computer naked! Is my camera on!?"* Then I realized you meant THOSE pants. I wanted to be sure of no problems with the new motor before committing the the struggle that is removing those things.

    *Sorry for the image. Think of your mother wearing a bikini and it will go away.

    YouTube wouldn't let me upload in HD. Honestly it was pretty blurry anyway. I can't explain the retro look of some of the photos. They were taken by Caleb.

    Oh and Smizo, BiplaneForum management called. They want you to flip those photos right-side-up for me. They also said "thank you!"


    (Nevermind, got it! Sometimes you just gotta use Windows)
