Me and flying buddy are planning on being there.

I'm assuming I can set up my bungee launcher?

Hi Julian,
We look forward to seeing you at the event! No problems with bungee launchers. There will probably be several there.

Hey Stu, is there 110v power out at the field? or will there be generators there?

One of our group is from Houston and he has flown out there many times. He didn't remember any power being out there.

I'll be bringing my RV battery just in case.

Hey Boogie. We will have our generator going during the event. You may also want to bring your RV battery too.

JetFest is only 5 short days away!

Weather forecast calls for 10% chance of rain with high around 80 degrees. Not bad for November!

Don't forget you sunscreen and come hungry. Pilot fee is $15 which includes lunch.

I re-maidened my Habu 1 after adding Eflite 15-25 size retracts Saturday. I was able to takeoff in about 50 feet from our grass runway. My friend Wally maidened his Dynam ME 262the same day with no issues. What a great flying plane!. We should also have a couple of bungee launchers on 11/10. We have plenty of room for bungees, hand launching and runway take-offs. We look forward to seeing everyone out at the field!

Great to see you Eric and all the other pilots. We had a great time- only 1 minor altercation with mother earth to report- easily repairable. Our best of show went to "Boogie" with his scratch built F105 and fastest jet was our own Wally with his Eflite F4 which was clocked at 136 mph. Thanks to Mark V for bringing out his radar gun!

Yeah, it was a lot of fun even with that good breeze blowin'.
Great hospitality, lots of good hanger flyin' too.

Hung out with old friends and made some new buds. The wife and I are already talking about our next trip back to Houston.

Up loading some (crappy) videos to youtube.
Here are some shots I took Saturday.

Boogie,

It was good to see you.
The Cougar flew great. That is one beautiful model.
