I think you hit the nail on the head for the most part. I'm no youngster at 53. Most of these guys are late 60's. At first I thought maybe they where lousing their touch but after talking with people who have known them for years they where never very good pilots. I've only been flying 4 or 5 years but have lots of stick time. I don't claim to be the best but have picked things up fairly quickly. Another problem is I'm all electric and yes most of my planes will out preform theirs. I have a Ritewing Demon that does 150MPH+. You maybe right about staying in the Club.
Thanks for you input.
