I have no interest in racing. I'm just not familiar with these size racers and wanted an idea of their parameters - particularly wing area, aspect ratio and airfoil(s) so I get started in the right direction.

I don't mind developing a model through several prototypes, but I also like to start somewhat close. In other words, I don't want to start trying to design what will ultimately become a P-51 by starting with a Telemaster.

Oh yeah... I'm in Spring Hill, Florida - west of Orlando, north of Tampa, south of Brooksville. At 50 I'm the youngest man in town.

I know where spring hill is. 25 miles from me. There's a big Race in Orlando this weekend. Sat and Sun if you want to come watch. The best and fastest RC Racing there is. Otherwise. There will be the slower Racing starting in January at the HAM field, club 40 but it doesn't even compare to a 3 Pole Race. I would say a Club 40 Race is like a local Carnival compared to the Worlds Fair.

I can't do anything on weekends. I work three overnight 12's - Fri, Sat & Sun. It's a great schedule because then I have the whole week to ship orders for my small business, but it also means that I can't ever do much of anything with normal people.

You guys should hold your races on Wednesdays at 3 a.m. That's very convenient for me.

HAHAHA. Naaaaa. Maybe it was a dumb analogy but there's nothing like 3 Pole Racing. All Day Saturday and Sunday. I have traveled 645 Miles to North Carolina to Race. It is a Blast. I can't imagine traveling that far for 3 rounds of Racing. 3 hours and your done.

The club 40 Races near me is 45 minutes away. I'll make all the races as
Long as it doesn't fall on a weekend of 3 Pole. and as long as they don't mess it up.
