Default Mid June....

....and Saturday may be the first chance I've had to fly this year.
Moist.
I'm off the rest of the week and I'm hoping to take a couple of hours one evening to figure out what needs to be flown because a) it's never flown, b) it hasn't flown in five + years, or c) it's cool and I want to see it fly again.

Can you fly your Farside-X at B6-4 Field on A8-0 to A8-0 to 1/2A3-4T ?
That might be fun.
I still have lots of 1/2A booster motors, which probably would be ideal in a small field, but know most don't have an old motor stash of those.

Nope, but it's going along, probably to fly C6-0/C6-0/C6-7. Depending on the wind, of course.

He may have to drive up to Muncie to recover the sustainer if he does a 3 x C6 Farside from the B6-4 field.

Nope. Just checked the Northern Kentucky winds. Looks like Bill will have to drive to Knoxville to pick up the sustainer!

B6-0/B6-0/B6-6 is also an option.

Flying in Dayton, OH, so Cincinnati might be a possibility.
