Re: 2nd Annual IKE Retreat! Sept 29-30

Hello everyone, As much as Adventure Dog and I were ready to roll, we won't be able to make it. We have to be responsible and attend to family matters. We're really bitter about this, as we looked forward to flying and catching up with everyone. Take some great pictures, and enjoy, David & Adven...

Re: 2nd Annual IKE Retreat! Sept 29-30

Hello everyone, I've been reading this string w/interest as this event last year really confirmed my addiction. I am 80% sure of making just the Sept 29th for the day (family committments). If so, Mark, we can drive out for the day. Meanwhile I was in Santiago del Estero, Argentina last week and wor...

Re: Make an Easy $300 on Sept 1-2

Greetings from Santiago del Estero, Argentina,

I could maybe make the 2nd date as I come back on Saturday. Down here I've been flying duals, SLK's & quads along the "Miske Mayu" AKA Rio Dulce. Pictures to follow.

As it was my initiation event, I AM IN.

I prefer late Sept. Heck even Adventure Dog is ready to go again.

Re: Who's flying what this week - June 18 - Sunday 24th?

Yes, I checked with Adventure Dog. It is Red Hawk Park. Anyway, yesterday late afternoon was terrific, and no soccer games either. You're right, at this point I need to start being more selective on what gets added to the 'Air Force'. To date, I am thrilled with my selections.

[color=#0000FF]Hello everyone, With the last few days of great wind in Chicagoland, I knew I had to get out. Work got in the way yesterday, so I was gunning for today. The dark side infected me & I got a vented Rev the same color/design as my regular Rev, (thanks Dave Z). Adventure Dog & I ...

I could swing Sunday afternoon @ 2 30. Montrose has decent parking, the beach & the park itself.

Re: Uneven lines

Actually all of this makes sense. B/c the wind was gusty & strong, I felt the 1 line stretch/creep & didn't realize it until I laid out the lines. I will start rotating sets. Meanwhile, I'll figure out a way to make this particular set work.

Thank you,

Uneven lines

Hey everyone, I went out for a flirtation with the "dark side" today. Whatever I did, I kept pulling to the right & spinning ,,, big time. This hadn't happened before. I looked at my one of my lines & it was easily 4" longer than the others. I have no idea why or how this happ...

Re: Club fly weekend of 5/12-5/13?

Hello everyone,

I got a few hours in this afternoon at the good ol'e air field. Ordinarily, I wouldn't post this, but I got my 1st axle today. I wish I had meant to pull an axle as it was purely by accident. Still, it looked pretty cool.

Re: Club fly weekend of 4/28-29?

Tell me about it, the wind was looking good yesterday late afternoon. But noooo, I had domestic issues first. I'm logging off, grabbing "adventure dog", loading the car, and going to our airfield.
