Life hasn't allowed me to do much the past few nights other than working on putting stuff away for ~10 minutes each night. Yesterday I had a Locksmith come out and install a deadbolt. I also replaced the door know and had everything keyed to match my house.

I finally found some time today to add in the 4th bracket to use the longer shelves I have.

I ended up rearranging things a little bit especially now that I have my workbench mostly cleared off. I'm getting the itch to get back on the AJ Raven again.

Three pictures from the Aerotow event at Apache Pass last Saturday. Unfortunately the wind really started to blow once I got out there.

I've been thinking about getting into the Senior Pattern deal. The planes are much less expensive and also some fun Sport types so they are not so specialized. Given the current Supply Chain issues (which I doubt will affect the hobby outside of maybe LiPos), I went ahead and ordered an OS 65AX.

Moving a few things around and trying to get organized. I'm still hoping to get back on the AJ Raven soon.

I needed to get out of the house yesterday so I charged up some batteries and went flying. I'm going to have to cut a piece of 2x4 to put under my PowerLab 8 because the screen is hard to see on the shelf.

Or try moving things around I guess because this setup isn't going to work unfortunately.

Three flights on the DeJaVu. I had my boys with me which was a whole other story of problems I'm not going to get in to.

From the shadow coming off of the plane before the 2nd flight, you can tell we were out there later in the day lol.

Very cool! I didn't realize there was an air tow event out there. I was flying in that crazy wind over here in Temple. The other club guys thought I was nuts. Oh well. :)
I'll have to look into the Senior Pattern thing. I am, after all, officially a Senior now. :p

Test post to see if making a post is still allowed using my company computer.

I installed the left aileron servo yesterday evening. The MKS 1220's fit tighter than I anticipated. I also installed the servo horn and adjusted it to approximately 90 degrees to the servo case but I need to check my trims in the Transmitter since I am using the same memory for the EF Edge I had.

I did put all subtrims to 0 and un-reversed the reversed servo channels.

IT protection at work so I'm going to have to settle for posting pictures like this until I get a personal computer again.

I swapped the phillips head servo screws for some #3's that take a hex head. The soft metal of the phillips didn't take much to strip out so I got to cut some groves for a flat head in them to get them out. One servo linkage setup most of the way. I'll take a look at a few things tomorrow night and start working on the right wing hopefully.
