Yep, that's right, it actually flies. :) It was a serious hassle, and required far too much work--got out to the field and discovered the radio receiver wasn't wired correctly, the prop nut flew off (twice), the engine doesn't want to idle, but... it flew!
Yes, I'm a complete novice...and yes, I'm quite enjoying being a novice for a change. I love learning things.
A bit of work to do and it'll be ready to go again.
(Yep, that's kellyasmith's car behind the plane--it's that big.)
Working on the plane prior to flight
Taxiing out on the runway--the instructor is handling it in this picture (he's to my left off the edge of the photo)
Going out to the S&M play party at Chambers tonight with kellyasmith, Shelly, her roommate, and J. tonight. Which reminds me--I still need to practice using a flogger in each hand.
Last week, Shelly did some very, very evil things to me. With implements. While I was tied up.
I have figured out a way to exact my revenge on her. In a particularly evil way. Heh heh heh...I'm going to be sooooooo bad, you would not even believe.
Shelly, be afraid. Be very, very afraid.
