SAM 12 Meet with pics

SAM 12 R/C Old Timers Contest this weekend on Sunday 2 August at Strawberry Field in Mays Landing, NJ. In addition to regular events, the Brown Junior event will have a special prize package.

The winner of the Brown Junior event will receive an built and unflown Miss Delaware along with having their name engraved on the original Brown Motors trophy won by Steve Kowalick with his Miss Delaware which will then be donated to the AMA Museum.

Weather looks good with forecast of light winds and hot temperatures which will have the thermals popping at Strawberry Field.

Flyer attached.

Have fun Warren, someday I hope to make it down to one of these events. Even if only as a spectator I would love to spend a full day there.

Did all right Bill. Why do the engines run fine at the home then give fits at a contest ? I shot myself in the foot in electric by making an off fieled landing by a metre winding up with a zero. Still fun and I Iove running the old sparkers.

It wasn't just engines. I couldn't get the Kloud Queen's electric motor to start. Imagine that...can't get an electric motor to start. It ran like a beast at the Spring meet. Here's the icing on the cake..I plugged everything in when I got home and the ESC armed instantly and the motor worked perfectly. Like seriously, what the heck? Over-temp protection because it sat in the sun?
