Anybody notice the website is down?
 
All of the pages other than the main one seem to be inop.

I was looking for some info on the club but can not get the website to load.


Anybody else having issues?

The only part of the website that works is the "Calendar", as it needs to still show the Dopme Fly and Swap Shop dates. Webmaster is working on it. :D

Are there many (any) people flying jets out there?

I am looking at starting my first one and have a couple questions.

Turbin or EDF?

The Club has one active turbin jet pilot, and couple EDF pilots. Generally speaking, jets are a small percentage of the total at the Club field. I have a BAE Hawk EDF for sale if you're interested.

The RVRCFlyers field is a premier field with lots of big blue sky, no trees, (2) flight lines, and (2) sun shades. Lot's of space to pilot your turbine around the sky! :)

Here it is. Tried a few new things on it, at least new for me. Painted it with cheap water based acrylic paint thined so I could spray it with my airbrush. Using HS 55 servos for the first time and also going to use a GWS 9050 prop. A guy on line always recomends these props with the motor I use. Looking forward to Saturday at the dome.
