The plan was a sunny day's flying with the kid's foamie and the occasional thermal and thrash with my Falcon to avoid the painting at home.
With the wind far stronger than forecast and expected the morning soon became a backwards flying session as the little foamie got more and more battered. But it was so much fun! A day that really reminded me of the reasons we started this mad sport in the first place.
The Falcon made me look far better than I am to impress the kids. Having 1 model that I've ballast up on the Crest, thermalled on a club day and then carved around on the next day out makes life so easy.
If you like a model, you'll fly it more and fly it better with a smile on you face.
