He was there the last two years, but his schedule is not on his site for 2015 so we'll see.

Thanks David. Those are the plans and are subject to change, as everyone should be well aware of by now "I change plans a lot".

WAIT A MINUTE...WAIT A MINUTE!!! That guy holding the first place trophy is an imposter, I'm sure of it! He doesn't look like a thing like the photo under his user name....!!

Way to go, Ace!! I'd bet you stopped many onlookers with your beautiful model. Your Pitts biplane is certainly an RC model that goes into the "outstanding" column. Congratulations, my friend, on winning the Peoples Choice Award.

Soft landings,

Joe

No not yet. Working on the canopy next week. Have been having issues with plastic, what type, and how to cut and drill it. I want to learn the right way and the best way for our needs so I can use it later on with other builds.

Golly, you should read the other thread he has on RCU! I can't keep up!

She's looking mighty fine though. Mighty fine indeed! I only wish I could see it in person. One of these days I hit the lottery and then I'll be able to go where ever I want, when ever I want. 'course I have to play to win...

During the periods of waiting for glue to dry on the other Pitts I have been working on the canopy plug. It has been sanded to near perfection and then I coated it with a ceramic paint, actually 5 coats with light sanding in between. Now I need to put it in the oven and bake the paint a bit. I should get something pulled tomorrow.
