On the website it lists the Predator under bagged models, but it's actually a moldie. Just thought I'd mention that.

Not only that but I can do partial differential equations, apply laplace transforms to transfer functions and derive Bernulli's equation from Navier-Stokes all while driving to an F3K contest

UtahDLG Year End Results

Attached are the year end results from our monthly contests. It will come as no surprise to anyone that Mike finished top dog. But look closely... there's a few other dogs nippin' at his heels.

I didn't get a chance to get a traveling trophy finished up before this last contest, but I am working on one and will let Mike award it to himself at the next contest.

Way to go Mike. Great flying all year long. I know we've been pushing you and you've stepped up your game to stay ahead. Looks like we're going to have step up our game for 2013 even more!

2 100's for me the last 2 contest. I had forgotten about last month!!!!!! Sweet!!!!

What is most impressive is that Mike has improved where its almost impossible to improve. Its those last little percents of a percent that are darn near impossible to improve on, but he has done it.

Great job Mike and congrats. You truly are TGHPOUDLG!!!!!!!!!! But dont get too comfortable on your throne, #11 and I have a plan!

Yeah, but it involves driving up to Eden in the middle of the night the night before the contest...... and I'm way to lazy for that.

I had a chance to talk to JonF and he was telling me of an experience he had while calling the Psychiatric Hotline. He got a recording that said:

If you are obsessive-compulsive, please press 1 repeatedly

If you are co-dependent, please ask someone to press 2

If you have multiple personalities, please press 3, 4, 5, and 6

If you are paranoid-Delusional, we know who you are and what you want. Just stay on the line so we can trace the call.

If you are Schizophrenic, listen carefully and a little voice will tell you which number to press.

If you are Manic-Depressive, it doesn't matter what number you press. No one will answer.

785 back into my 1S 1200 after the contest. Seems like ALOT!!!!! Maybe its the pull string, but on my other Helios seems like the burn rate was lower. That has a push rod on elevator.

I am guessing I only really flew for maybe 80 minutes.

So a burn rate of 100 per 10 minutes makes the math easy.
