I haven't updated my blog in AGES. So here's a little sign that I'm still alive. Yesterday, I went out to the flying club to try to do a little more flying with my Extra. The weather has been really bad this summer so I haven't got much flying done since I bought it.
Oh - and it's not usually this difficult to start. Normally, after priming, 2-3 flips of the propeller is all it takes.
