    Wind, yay! Very sarcastic about that. Wind is annoying. If it's not 2 mph than 5 if not 10 if not 20. Not breezy now and most of the time it's windy. :/
    And there he goes with the carbon...

    Wow, that's bad. We have a flap that bangs, and bangs, and bangs and bangsandbangsandbangs when the wind blows. The flap is for the dryer's air to escape.

    As of this afternoon the wind owes me an RC heli.... All my nitro trucks are down awaiting parts so I was running my merv around in the backyard today, and it was so nice and calm out that I decided to get the heli out afterwards. All was good for a while then I got er too high and it got caught up in the wind up there (I have a large, relatively sheltered backyard with several trees to break the wind) and slowly drifted away, until I had no choice but to put it down before it got even further away. It is somewheres in the vast wooded area behind my place, probably high up in a tree, but I couldn't find it before it started getting dark. Gonna go out tomorrow and try again. At the very least I imagine it now has a ruined lipo and whatever damage it got on the way down. :\

    Oh the joys of this hobby!
