There appears to be a mild breeze outside. It's a freezing cold 16 degrees, with 40 knots of wind. Gusting to a measly 45kts.



I would really love to see what the wind swept waves would be looking like down on the ocean right now, but it's too dark, all I would see would be dark with occasional light patches of spray. and rain. lots of rain.
I think I shall head down there first thing in the morning though and attempt to record the wonderfulness that is strong wind.

In the meantime, there are youtube videos to keep me entertained.

The breeze is forecast to drop next Thursday, which means I'll be able to go flying. Yay!
The last couple of times I've been out with the lil' heli, I've run both batteries flat, with no crashing, and taken about an hour to do so. That's lots of 3-5 minute stints in the air. The last session was fantastic, even if I did break a blade right at the end. Tail in hovering, nose in hovering, figure 8s in the space in front of me, and some gyrations around the sky.
