So yesterday, the wind was so strong it lifted the lid off my Dad's galvanised incinerator. The fact it had a chimney didn't matter, the air pressure wanted it and it took it. Only took it a meter away, but still!


You should hear and see it when it is garbage day with high winds, empty these guys are cruising down the streets. ðŸ˜…

So is yer dad`s incinerator one of those lightweight jobs from B&Q?😋 May be it was a flue flighter.


It is indeed a storebought. He tried to scratch build one using an Oil drum he took back from work and a stepdrill. Did not understand that you need to allow a drill to cool if you want it to go through metal and burned the thing out after drilling only three holes in the drum. ðŸ˜‚

It was a really good drill as well, it'd been going strong since the 80s!

My one and only flight with the Argentine Pucara, well only for today. Some small repairs to do after an unexpected unplanned landing. I thought maybe I was to close to the ground when I banked into the wind and I pancaked it onto the ground. I called it pilot error but after inspecting it which there was really very minor damage (lucky) but the elevator servo had died so now I blame it on the servo .

LOL, foam repairs are very minimal. Fishing in a new elevator servo could be fun because it is right under the horizontal and the wire runs right past or under the rudder servo. 🙁 

It does fly really well, if I built it again I would move the nacelles out an inch to allow for 9" possibly even 10" props.

Always blame it on mechanical or electrical, I would😃 She flies very nicely.
I do have another excuse for not flying, the fields are flooded. (No great surprise).

Some of our people in the mid-west U.S. are under 4 feet of water.
