Just got my new full vent B-Pro (Thanks Big Mike) ... since I can't fly it because it's @#$%ing cold out there, I'll show it off here. 8-)

Don't let the cold stop ya! I had more than a few 6 degree days flying last year :)
this year I haven't had time off of work to enjoy the wind.

Oh come on swannie ... what kind of fair weather flyer are you!!! Here's Big Mike flying in colder weather than we have right now ... yes, that is a minus in front of the 20 degrees F.

At least for now I can "complain" about there not being enough wind to fly a full vent. :D

Yeah. I'm keeping an eye on it. I have something planned Saturday, but maybe I can sneak out before. Want to put up my vented too. Maybe a sled and some laundry to make people roll their eyes too.
