Scratch built 2009 from magazine article I know longer remember. Wing Span 42 inches, weight 38 ounces, Motor Suppo 2208-14, 3c 2200 lipo, 20 amp ESC and 8/6 prop. Maiden flight in 2009 spectacular in its uncontrollability. Talk about squirrelly. Put on shelf until last fall 2014. Changed cg and motor thrust line, engaged a much younger, proficient pilot and behold a fantastic flyer!

Took my duet and night vapor out front today was a little windy even with for cast calling for 3 mph. Had much stronger wind coming up while flying. Did get to fly duet for a while wind coming up about 5 min in flight. Got 3 flights in had to land on 3rd flight wind got to strong. Put the night vapor up without flying. Using one of my champ battery's in the duet now, charging with my spitefires charger. Car coming by while flying had to pull over 2 times and let it go by. Nice and warm outside today. Winds showing well be down for a few days may try out back later today. Just before it gets dark get ina few flights with a few planes.

This past Sunday I had a chance to participate in the first club contest of the year. It was my second ever DLG contest, my first with a newly acquired ship. I considered this day to be more of a chance to practice and learn how work thermals. I didn't fair too well in the contest, but I did learn alot. Often the guy timing me was able to coach me on how to fly thermals, I think the longest I managed to fly was for 3:15 despite breezy conditions all day. That flight was coached by my timer Steve, who won the contest for that day. At the end of the contest I got a chance to test my other newly acquired ship, and that turned out to be much better than the one I was using, I look forward to my next contest!!

Here are the results from the contest:
Final Results: (see attached for point totals and rounds)
1 Steve Martinez
2 Mike Wiz
3 Chris Parken
4 Sean Fidler
5 Ryan Ensminger
6 Scott Rhodes
7 Rick Wait
8 Barney Bauer
9 Larry Markey
10 Tom Kelley
11 Mike/Rick...Continue Reading

The SAE Aero Design West 2016 Competition was held on 22-24 April 2016 at Apollo XI Field in Van Nuys, CA and it was an awesome event!

This year was my first time attending as a Volunteer Pilot for the California State University Northridge Team and it was an amazing experience, not to be forgotten.

If you're interested in volunteering to assist teams at the next event, check out the link below. I highly recommend getting involved in this rewarding team building opportunity.
