We've been talking about going to Los Banos two times a year, instead of our usual one, for the spring scale event. We just planned it and told each other,"You're going!" October 15,16,17, what a good time!
Gary's Yukon got packed to the gills, wish I had a picture. Byron and I rode up with Ryan whose truck was also stuffed. Jonathon and Bob drove up solo, Brian and Don met us up there on Saturday.
Friday was 93 degrees hot and clear, we towed all day and flew electrics too. Dinner at the Woolgrower's restaurant was outstanding as always. Saturday was a little cooler with some clouds. Some of the guys from SBSS came out to join us. Peter brought his Pegasus, so two towplanes and a lot of gliders were in the air all day. The wind started to blow a little and we were able to do some sloping with light planes on the slope closest to the dam. Late afternoon the wind picked up enough to have our scale ships on the slope. We sloped until dusk with four 4M ships in the sky with no mishaps. Sunday morning the wind was blowing, we ate breakfast quickly and bee lined for the reservoir.

Mothfest 2010 was a good time as always. The Dave's Beach guys are great. This year there was some wind, even though it got light at times. Some nice looking planes there too.

Fabio Marin AKA "Slope Addict" rebuilt this EPP P-38. I originally built two of them. I kept one and sold the other. It changed owners a few times and I managed to get it back in well used condition. It sat in my garage for a few years, Fabio recently gave it a new home and a much needed rebuild. He did a great job, and it was nice to fly it again. They are 1/12th scale at 52" 6062 airfoil.
