We had a great Grace Family Fun Fly today. Attendance was a little off, probably due to the warm but windy weather. And some of the pilots were known to be out of town.

Nice to see Curt's beautiful biplane with Vapor guts fly, even a little bit. It's s o o o s l o w !

The coned off, No Spectators, area worked out well. Everyone easily understood that area was reserved for the larger helis. We had one rather spectacular heli crash over there today, and people commented how nice it was to have that happen in a No Spectator zone! Not so good for the heli, but these things happen if you hit the ceiling in such a high-ceiling flying facility.

Thanks, Rick, for flying my UMX Extra 300 and doing some durability testing on it. No damage that I'm aware of. I really like that plane, and I don't plan to acquire any more of anything else till something even better comes along. And everything we've done with it so far has been with much less than full-up control throws!

Thanks to all who came and had such a great GFFF today!
Jim
