Highlights
ROC Lake IV, Day 1: Sunny, but very windy. After setting up, I flew the Big Daddy on a single use G125-10T. It zipped off the pad for a nice flight. Next was the Sandhawk on a K560-W. It was a nice flight to 8182 feet. Unfortunately a fin broke off at the root while being dragged over a hill by the wind. The fin was repaired with 30 minute epoxy. The last flight was the Arcas on a G64-W.
