We had a couple of gas guys show up today and we let them run by themselves.

I kind of wish someone had shot video of their second run. That's when I took my DF-33 P mono out and spanked both of them.

LOL is right. I'm still chuckling to myself over that one.
"You guys don't need to stop I'm just gonna come out and chase you for a few laps". So I chased 'em til I passed 'em both and chased the one that didn't blow over til I passed him a 2nd time.

Sure wasn't what I was expecting to see Ron. Before they went in the water I was listening to tales of "finishing 7th in a field of 28 boats" and such.
The red one was supposed to have some kind of mod 38cc motor where the other was running a 26cc mod. I don't think any of us there were impressed by anything other than the amount of noise they made. They did have a cool recovery vessel though. A stand up windsurfer board they were paddling out to get their boats on with every run.

Another windy day at Ackerman so attendance wasn't that great. This is an early morning Limited Spec Offshore heat before the wind got really bad.

Here's an old mono that Dave drug out of the cobwebs and rigged up for testing an ESC. He never really got to test it at full throttle because the hull was behaving so badly.

Another short one. Gary from The Villages brought his twin Shocker cat down to try out. That much chop does not work well for something moving really fast.

That's it for videos today. There were some more runs made but they didn't get recorded since I was driving at the time.

I have to say that other than the hazy sun, today was actually a much better day at Ackerman than any of us expected. The wind forecast was looking like a big boat kind of day but there was not a lot of chop in the early morning hours.
1st up Dave's Miss Elam on a run. He's starting to get this one dialed in pretty good now.

Elam (3 min 6 sec)



Made for a good test day on my new Sony DEV-3 camera, too. I'm liking this one.

This is Ron's Delta Force 33 with 4082 Leopard 2000 kv motor running 4s and I think a M445 prop.

Dave & Rich playing chase. Dave's driving the Titan and Rich the Spartan.
Dave's Titan was running really well with the Leopard 4082, T180 and X447 prop. His next time out with it the ESC blew though.

Managed to talk Chris into trying out my new camera and got some video of my freshly repaired Falcon cat today. AT 50 feet and well over 50 mph the repairs are not noticeable at all.

Rich brought out his Mini Mono today. He kept wanting to race my Falcon cat with it but I told him that first I'd need to put some stickers on the insides of my sponsons that read "Mini Mono Intake"

Last one today. A short run on my Sprintcat with Chris at the wheel and me shooting video. It started out with SC against the Spartan but Rich blew the Spartan over somewhere around lap 3 so thought I'd let Chris finish running down the packs since he didn't bring anything to run other than the recovery boat.

I went to the SRQ Squadron Air Fair 2013 fly in for a little while today. I won't list all the individual videos shot (some of which are still uploading) but the Youtube playlist for the event is here for those that like planes too.
