I'm back....

My Easy 2 Trainer is now on it's third life. Not bad for a plane that is 5 years old and a heck of a lot of flights.



Yesterday I pulled off the bottom, re-glued the firewall and support. Put back on a new bottom and landing gear, covered it, re-set all the servos. Pulled the engine apart and cleaned it all with a soft toothbrush and some carb cleaner. Removed all the carbon from the piston and head. Everything was ready to go.

Only problem, the wind was a bit gusty today. But I still managed to get in a flight. It took 4 passes at the runway until I felt I was well aligned and the wind was giving me a bit of a break, but I landed the plane nice and easy so she is all ready for another flight.

With the wind like it was though, I decided that second flight will only be some other day.

See you all at the field!

Cheers,
Mike

Great to have you back Mike. Just one question, how do you get your planes into your scoot,s saddlebags?

You might be joking, but I've been thinking about that one. The only thing I have that would be possible would be the IFO. But I will keep my eyes out for something small enough and tough enough to withstand the bike. Perhaps a foamy.

Would be nice to go for a ride up north, have a little flight or two, supper at a nice restaurant and home.
