The Polar Bear/Freeze Fly
9 Attachment(s)
This is the annual 01/01/2012 Barnstormers "Polar Bear/Freeze Fly" held every New Year's Day.

The temp. was 47, not bad considering Sat. 31 was 62.:( The wind, although, was an issue. Gusts from 25-35mph grounded a few planes unfortunately!

Nixa Ozark and Springfield Mo area
I am a long time RC flyer with the Ozark Mountain Barnstormers
our website is

We have a history of being a fun fly club and having a nice family/kid orientated atmosphere. It is a great place to learn to fly. At one time we had several father son flying teams. We have a few wives that fly sometimes.
Guest flying is encouraged!:D We keep a couple barBQue grills ready all the time, bratworsts fear us!
We fly everything from 3D to SPADS to sailplanes to foamies to 1/5 scale gassers. Combat has been known to happen on occasions too. So if its fun we do it:) AMA is required of course, dues are similar to other area clubs I think. We have neighboring clubs in Springfield, Mo. Joplin, Mo. and Reed's Springs/ Branson, Mo. areas. Great guys in all of those clubs and sometimes some of them stop by to fly. We enjoy that!

I made it to my first "Thursday Build Night" and I wanted to thank Calvin for his hospitality. I'm still unfamiliar with some of the guy's names, but to the guy that brought the chili, thanks, it was delicious.;)

Greg, here are links to 2 of those Receiver switches I spoke of.

I can't tell for sure, but I am thinking that is a PT-17 Bi-Plane in the logo?
