Its been awhile since I have last posted in my blog.

Let me explain what I have been up to.

1.I maidened my 47" Osiris by 3DHS.
2.I maidened my 89" Slick by 3DHS.

I went to the Ohio Huckfest put on by Flying Giants, and competed in the King 50.

A summary of that:

THE Ohio Huckfest was absolutely awesome! I had a good time, and I got to meet and fly with a lot of amazing pilots. It was a really well run event, SleepyC really knew what he was doing. The local club members were all really nice guys and they had awesome food.

The King 50 was a blast, and it was my first competition. It was definitely a learning experience. I had only 20 flights on my new 89" Slick when I arrived, and had only practiced my routine about 10-15 times so I wasn't sure what to expect. It went much better than I expected and I managed to take 6th place! Thats great considering my only goal was to not come it last.

Nightflying was about as good as it gets, I always fly under the lights when I get the chance. I won the "Most Insane 3D Flight" award, which is now hanging proudly in my room. That was a surprise.

I have to thank Joe Smith and RJ Gritter, both helped me out when my muffler broke in-flight between qualifying and the finals. All the King 50 pilots did an awesome job and really put on a great show!

I will be back next year for sure.
