Just apologize for not uploading any videos lately. Unfortunately have I been bedridden due to my illness but is now on my feet again and had a few flights now for the first time since 27 August.

It was a perfect flight in a wonderful sunset here in Härjedalen, a little windy but no big problem. Very nice to get back to the air again and hope the body and weather stays so I can fly as normal again.

Hope you like the video.


Cheers Bjarne

Then I finally started some flying again after a long fall with some health issues and other things that kept me away from flying.

Beginning the new year buddy boxing with my grandson Sondre who got a little smaller and easier airplane for christmas that he liked. Sondre flies like a dream and I believe that in the summer will he probably go solo, really fun to see new young pilots start flying.

Hope you like the video.


Cheers Bjarne

Good to see the HK Tundra working well. I'm close to doing my maiden in the week or so - weather permitting.

Safe Flying.

An absolutely fantastic flight yesterday's afternoon. No wind, clear skies and amazing colors just after sunset. But a little cold fingers when it was a little under -20 celcius (-4 fahrenheit) here in fantastic Sveg.

Hope you like the video.

Lovely setting there, Bjarne. I am a recent convert to your video threads and do enjoy them. Tell me one thing how do your lipos hold up in those temperature? Do you notice much reduction in flight duration? Good one! smile d

Thank you Adrian, glad you like my videos..........smiley

I have never noticed any difference in performance in my lipos between summer or winter.

A little too much snow to fly, so I and my sons have made a radio-controlled snow sledge. Will guarantee more videos on this one in the future.

Hope you like the video.

Have not been able to fly anything since all of my amazing places are under several meters of snow, but we made a small Sunday trip and had a narrow road as a runway. Used the Tundra that fits perfectly like STOL plane that shows at the short landing in this video.

The snow depth where I put Tundra at the beginning of the video is 1.85 meters (6.06 feet) high from my lawn, as you can see do we have more than enough snow now.


Hope you like the video.


Cheers Bjarne

Hi Bjarne,

Great video. How long will that snow stay with you ?

Are you eyeing up the Tundra's big sister that HK have just announced.

Bjarne, you had 6 feet of snow in beautiful Sveg, and drove out to your patch.

Here in the UK we had 6 inches of snow, and the country came to a standstill, confined to our homes

With food and water shortages

Ah well, it is Spring now, we can fly soon

Continue your posting of brilliant videos, thankyou

Sheer poetry, Bjarne! Keep up the good work. Pretty well nothing stops you from flying looking at the conditions (beautiful though they are) I guess?

Keep them coming Bjarne, always pleased to see the flying and scenery. I wonder if the cold shortens the flying time with electrics ? Cheers and thanks again.

Thx Devcon1. Most of the snow will be gone during May, but some of the bigger piles will probably stay until June. About the bigger Tundra is the answer no, I do have the e-flight Carbon Cub Z that I enjoy as a bigger STOL plane. But if I can scrape up the founds would I absolutely by the Avios BushMule, it looks like pure fun......smile p

Thx Denis. We are used to a lot of snow, not this much then. Have my own snowblower and we use spiked tires on our cars during the winter season. I do start to miss the spring and summer, kinda tired of all the snow now and would like to get out to all my beautiful places I do have her to fly from that I can't get to now.....smile d

Thx Adrian. I just love flying and have done so sens I started back in 1980 and I do fly the whole year summer as winter, just putting on skis in the wintertime.....laugh

Thx fly boy3. I have never noticed any difference in flight time during the winter season due to lack of power. I have been flying in as low temperature as -25C, the only thing that shorten my flights then is when my fingers turn into popsicles due to that I don't like flying with glows.....wink


Cheers Bjarne

Do you have any problems with lipos in low temps? here in Scotland I find if flying in low temps especially with small (500s) they get cold quickly and do not perform at high throttle. Larger 2200s dont seem to be affected but I dont have a chance to try at -20
