I was surprised as there were many awesome designs! The competition was tight! I'd would have hate to have been the judges. So much talent out there that deserves recognition.
If I could only fly as good as I carve...
My HobbyKing Yak 54 arrived in the mail today! A very nice looking little EPO Parkflyer!
As for the maiden...upstate NY is looking very fall like with some cold rain after a much enjoyed (enjoyed? Yard Work!) 3 day “Indian Summer”. So the maiden is looking grim between my schedule and the weather..
