By now you know we have arrived at our final destination for this winter, that is if you read patsyischillin every day. Yes, Quartzsite Arizona a small desert town full of campgrounds and BLM & LTVA areas surrounding it.
Here, I can continue to enjoy my hobby of flying RC aircraft at the Quartzsite Desert Flyers club field. I came down with three airplanes this year, two electric and one glow fuel. The glow fuel plane being a Piper Cub developed a knocking noise, not having tools and replacement parts readily, I sent it away last Friday to Horizon Hobby to be looked at. The engine, a Saito FA-82 four stroke is over 25 years old and has never had anything done to it. I received a call today letting me know it has been repaired and will be shipped Monday, I should have it by end of the week.

Having nothing to fly was not enjoying my hobby, fortunately, one of the club members had an airplane he was wanting to sell, negotiations were done and I now have another electric plane to fly.
There you have it for now, thanks for stopping by. Until the next time, take care.
