Probably best to have a look at the recent weeks logs.

RJs seem to fly sun/Tues/Thurs now with the occasional Friday mission.
They can be up as early as 6am, if they meet a tanker they are up for 10hrs, if not normally about 5hs.

E3s normally fly Tuesdays, Mondays are normally just Shadows.

Just have to take a chance at Waddo, nothing is guaranteed, and it can be very quiet.

Rj should be up tomorrow, but it will be early - around 6am.
Waddo also have night flying slots tues/thurs evening so might be quieter during the day.
