Good luck Airflap, you are entitled to your thoughts. I put the links in back a page just in case some of us read it and want to confront them . They are open to letters from modelors until July 23rd. If the bill is passed I and others will continue to fly still. Just keep looking over your shoulder for the cops.
Have fun,
**Neons** Bob

Would love to get back together. Although I don't fly as much as I used to...
Here's one I shot on 6-28.

here's a picture of it:


Are you guys still interested in getting together?

Mwahahaha !

You guys are going to want to see this in person...

Lets start throwing out dates and locations for a meet in september.

No pressure, just a fun fly and some show and tell !

Im good to go sat/sun 9/6 - 9/7 or 9/13 - 9/14

Maybe worth a new thread if we can make it happen.

Either should be fine with me. Do you have a place in mind, Andy, or will the owner of that field let us do it there again?

Living 5mins from Bob, I think about him whenever I see a quad. I've regrettably not flown my quads since Bob's passing..... He made it interesting to fly, and was always around if I wanted to get airborne....

If you guys get together again, I'd like to see where the hobby has progressed since I've been out of touch. I have been too involved in work, and my motorcycles to give flying any thought. It's tough to stick to it when I don't have an electronic bench to work on, lately my work bench has been getting covered in metal shavings and dust....no place for electronics.

Baker Farm where Bob had these meets has been growing wildly as far as a customer base goes so I am not sure they would allow us there on the weekends...... Someone could always ask. Bob used to tell me the owner is Kenny Baker if anyone could reach him to ask permission...
