    Fred your airplane is something we can relate to because it is in our price range and it is what most of us on this forum fly. Your videos are enjoyable to watch because it is the type of flying most of us do. Also you do not ramble on and do not ask everybody to subscribe to your channel. Keep the realistic videos coming Fred!

     No smoke here yet. The wind just turned north tonight.  Maybe we will get some then. Ya, she loves to fly. She's a great Turkey hunter also. She shot a Jake last spring and a big tom this spring.

    Atle Dodge was smart. He took phone calls ,orders and actually shipped parts. These kit manufactures now never answer their phones and never get parts out in a timely matter. Nobody to blame but themselves.

    I never had any problems with my SkyRaider 1. It was a blast to fly.

    I have talked to a guy that knows him.
     He has had trouble with cooling the engine. I think he has only test flew it. The build is real nice though, just not a good engine choice.

    On a sunny day it is easy to see the drifts because they cast a shadow.  Cloudy days and full snow cover you have to be real careful.  If there is no reference I like to carry power on landing and slowly descend until I touch down then cut power.  I have also
    thrown my coat out the door and came back around and try to touch down right next to my coat.

    That's where I attach mine also. I don't think there is such a thing as an" approved attach point."
