The latest issue of the monthly ALFA insurance magazine (Neighbors) has an article about drones in it. It even features E-Merchant RC in the article. Mostly talks about the FAA pulling the plug on farmers using drones.

How about this for some September flying? This was Wednesday evening. Me flying my Whisper 2M glider at Torrey Pines Gliderport in La Jolla, California. Slope paradise!

I love visiting Torrey Pines, not so much for RC, but to watch the "full-scale" paragliders fly by just a few feet away.

Need to get together and fly Sport Cub float planes! Haven't had the floats on mine yet, no water rescue vehicle and the local lakes have rabbid ducks.

That photo makes me wonder if the Rx and ESC will be salvageable!

Andy,
I like the scale paddlewheeler, speedboat, and crane! Too bad you couldn't find a proper scale lighthouse...

Wow wish I'd have known I was there Wednesday morning but nobody was flying when I was there.

I carried my UMX ASK-21 in its box on the plane as my "personal item" carry-on. They didn't give me any grief. The big glider was checked in a Sportube. Worked out great.

I watched it. Would I have understood it better if my computer speakers were not broken?
