At our Aug 13th Outdoor Flying Event Jeff recorded a flight time of 1 minute 14 seconds. He’s extremely luckily it didn’t fly out of our limited size flying field west of the Frontier Middle School nor did it land in a tree, as did Charlie Taylor’s Half-size Wakefield (1/2 Awake) plane.
Charlie got it back the next day, however, but not without paying a ransom consisting of a case of Miller Light beer (and coincidentally an 80 mile round trip from Independence) to retrieve the plane. It seems that the ransom was not for the plane but for the propeller found in the grass. It goes without saying that the real work was the work courtesy of the man’s son who actually climbed the tree to retrieve the plane.
