Dave and I use to fly off the soccer field at Menchville high shcool in Newport News back in mid 1976.... Alot of fond memories indeed... 76-79. We'd fly most of the day and then fly HLGs in the afternoon after the wind would calm down... THAT was just as much fun as fly'n RC even... I still fly HLGs that both dave and I designed... each time I do.. I think of Dave... as each time I fly my pronto.
Its a great feeling to remember something done or said or laffed about... watching both our HLG hit boomers at the same time and GONE.. LOL
I miss him...

The last time I saw Dave was in the post office in Farmville, he was mailing

I realy miss Dave and the many designs and writeups he did.
I just scaled the Pipsqueak down to 16" and by the way I sill have A Pronto.
