Hubbie's New Hobby
Beef has picked up a new hobby over the holidays. His brother gave him an RC (as in radio-controlled) airplane, and he's been out flying several days a week since then. The one he's holding is actually his brother's newest plane, but Beef has already bought himself a new one as well.
Beef toys with the planes most evenings and his newest endeavor is attaching a camera to the inside of the plane so we can watch the actual flight from the pilot position. Scamp and I went out today with him to monitor the video equipment as he took the plane out for a test flight. The temperature outside was in the 30s, so Beef set the mini-monitor up on the dashboard of the car. Scamp and I were able to view the flight in warmth. Even with the windy conditions, Beef kept the plane soaring, but the video camera wouldn't send a clear signal to the monitor. He thinks with a few alterations, we'll be able to witness the on board flight before long. Hopefully, the weather will warm up, so we can watch without freezing our tukoses off!
