    Being an astronomer with an array of telescopes it is common to be cursed by a new acquisition. Having been gripped by aperture fever you have just bought a new bigger telescope or high end eyepiece, it has just been delivered and you wait to use it that evening, you can bet curse will strike the clouds roll in and wait days and days for clear skies.

    My P3A arrived on Saturday morning got three recharges and flights in that day. Plan was to actually head off to the local cliffs and beaches on Sunday but the curse has struck severe weather warnings and gusts of 60mph. Today its down to 25mph winds and drops to around 15mph in the evening, much the same again tomorrow.

    At least the astronomy world is not just blighted by this sort of luck, RC flyers appear to have a similar issue. Either that or it is just me.
