First up, apologies if there is already a XP11 AAR topic.
Inspired by the Christmas Flight discussion and one or two ‘Bad Influencers’ I bit the bullet and bought XP11.
I want to crawl-walk-run, so starting with something low and slow I purchased the VSKYLABS EuroFOX and took it for a spin (no, not that kind of spin) today.
This thing is a ton of fun. Basic plan was to take off from YSCB and see if I could find my house. Canberra isn’t my closest airfield, but it has nice long runways… and hey, I’m a learner.
Still, it gets into the air in no time.
Climb out and looking for Googong Dam… there it is.
I can now commence my IFR (I Follow Rivers) flight plan with the ‘mighty’ Queanbeyan River below.
There’s the neighbours house, Hi Mal & Jenny
Looking, looking… some ■■■■■■■ has stolen my house! It should be right there?
Oh, well, might as well head back. Googong back in sight again. Why is this light blinking at me? I don’t know what that is, I’ll just ignore it.
Runway in sight.
Crawl - Walk - Run… Pffft! Let’s go for a sprint.
What could possibly go wrong?
RIP Harry Bumcrack. Last seen somewhere over Nevada at 50,000ft and climbing.
Luckily his clone is more sensible and practicing in something he can handle
