New woodstove will keep us warm.  For those who have not been to the field in a while, we have a new woodstove.  Take a look at this beauty.  We still have the barrel stove as a backup.  Come out and visit with us this winter to see how warm we can make the impound with the new stove.

Working on a new plane!

I've been working on an old NorCal Aero PeeTee kit. It's "a fun scale PT-19"  I got this kit by trading the little Lanier Stinger kit I bought from Rob a while back for it.  It has a 63 in wing span and originally called for a 60 4 stroke.  It will be electric of course.

Now Complete!

Glider Flight

Had a nice flight at the end of the day today with my Chrysalis glider.  30 sec of motor run time at the start, landed 28 minutes later.  I bought a used GPS sensor to play around with and it works well.  I exported the data into Google Earth and you can see the flight.

Here's just the altitude trace.
