The sun was out first thing this morning, which is the signal for another great day in the desert. I was off to the flying field by 8:00 and Judy was down swimming. The wind started to come up around 9:30 so that put a bit of an early end to flying. Not to worry, I had some finishing work to complete on my new Fusion Airplane that I am building.
Just a couple finishing touches left, and the plane is now ready to take flight… yes, I decided to make it a “Proud Canadian Airplane”. So you ask… “How much did it cost to build a plane light that… 1 sheet of Depron, (White Dense Foam) $10.00, electric motor, $11.00, speed controller for the motor, $13.00, radio receiver, $11.00, other misc. hardware pieces, glue, supplies etc. $50.00 for a total cost of $95.00. I am able to hook it up onto the radio transmitter that I already have. Sure hope it flies!
This afternoon, we headed into Cathedral City, and Rancho Mirage to do a bunch of shopping, and then in celebration of Valentine’s day, Judy chose to have Dinner at the Olive Garden, one of our favourites!
We arrived at 4:20 to find a line up! Yikes… not to worry, only 1/2 an hour wait so we enjoyed some refreshments before dinner!
