Nice flight report. Those are great photos for only using a phone camera.
This is supposed to be my winter build season but somehow I just haven't been inspired.
Too many other things going on to give my builds the attention they deserve.
Sometimes it's good to take a break from your interests and then jump back in later.
Weather is lousy today so maybe I'll head for the workbench and see what happens.
Good to hear you're back at B6-4 field and had a successful day.

I know exactly how you feel! It passes, just a little slowly at times,

Nice flight report.
I still have some 1/2A5-0s motors to fly my Midget 2-stage and also have 1/2A3-0t motors for my mini-brute Midget.

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.
ALL systems are GO for MAYHEM, CHAOS, and HAVOC !
