I am heading to see Phil tomorrow
and possibly fly from his location if weather is
good. I will be arriving at Phil's place around
noon and plan to fly after lunch. Anybody else in?
If so email with your cell # so we can co
ordinate. After flying off to the mighty, awesome,
unbelievable, PURPLE PIG.
I will introduce you to the most
popular drink of Czech Pilots, the "Monkey Butler"
Sunglasses for flying with radio helmet.
As you know, I am always building
better mouse trap. Every time I would fly on sunny
day my sunglasses would dig into my temples during
flight as the radio helmet ear muffs press against
the arms of the glasses. After while it gets
very uncomfortable. As usually I thought there
must be a better way. This is what I came up with.
Take sunglasses and unscrew the little screw that
holds the arms hinged together. Drill holes to fit
rubber elastic, thread, knot, secure knots with
superglue and you are done. The picture says it
Good luck making
your super duper comfortable
home for Simon RR and couple of gliders
finished. More here.
24/04 And I
thought that my tricky
take off was bad... How about this??!!

Tak hosi, tuhle sobotu se bude litat
jak o zivot jestli bude hezky. Drzte vsichni place
at se nam to vyvede a nikdo si na tom padaku
nerozbije drzku a nebo nerozstipe vrtuli...
