Monday's Musings

Good afternoon, dear Reader.

I have decided today that the greatest way to spend a lunch hour at work is to go into the loading bay, and fly my gyrocopter.  I was down there with 3 other guys today, flying away.  What a blast!!  Now, my 'copter is not as powerful as theirs, but the fun factor was way up there.  If you're not sure what my gyrocopter looks like, here's a pic:
It is not as big as it looks.  But it is twice as much fun as it looks.  I bought this one at the TV Showcase shop in Londonderry mall.  The first few hours I flew it, I crashed and burned several times.  It is very easy to hit the panic button when you lose control of the 'copter.  But now, with a few more hours of flying under my belt, I am much better at NOT panicing, and I am more able to recover from a bad situation.  Of course, some situations are just not recoverable from...and then the crash is ugly.  So far, I haven't broken anything on the 'copter, or in the house...although my wife's ivy plant just about bit the dust.  That, dear reader, did not go over well.  I am hoping that within the next 5-7 days, my big 'copter will show up.  The big 'copter is an ESky LLama V4.  I bought mine out of Hong Kong, mostly because it is about a $100 cheaper than here....the only drawback is that I have to wait for 7-10 days for it to arrive.  Patience is a virtue. 

Dear reader, I really don't have anything more to muse about today.  Just a little more than an hour to go before I can go home and fly my bird around the house.  Tonight is a meeting at the church, so flight time will be somewhat restricted. 

And now, my brain is done.  Thus I bid you adieu.
