Saturday Flying 8/22/2020

Drove out to the flying field to fly the freewing Avanti and discovered two things wrong keeping me from flying:
1. Brought the battery charger but didn’t have the wall power plug cable
2. Brought a carbon wing tube, but brought the one for the A-10.
Some days flying just ain’t meant to happen.
The photo is of Tim’s P-40 and Darrell’s J-3 Cub. They brought the right gear out to the field .
