Made it home Sat, afternoon, 1535 miles and 7 gas stops one way, spent last night unloading airplanes and getting organized again!!! Well worth it!! Thanks again for the hospitality. Looks like you have stirred up more commotion for the nall. Feels like we will have a real light line at the lake with a bunch of guys bringing ammo to fly. There is fun in numbers!!

I forgot to plug the cooling hole in the bottom of the fuse, and some water got into my elevator servo connector... Made for a VERY cold retrieval. It's all fixed, is much more water resistant, and ready for round 2.
Funboy, are you coming to the Joe Nall fly in?? If so, bring your plane, the more , the merrier!!

I am looking forward to seeing the L-4 lit up like a huge Christmas Tree, just fly in a circle and we can party in the lit up area.

Well, managed to get a few flights in yesterday, the plane fly's perfect, I wont change a thing. This float flying is a blast.

We have our BIG float fly next weekend at my field, so I will get some more video and pics from it.
