I believe he means he parked it in a tree.

I have never heard of that term, while I have parked a couple in the tree, they always came down, right now. In fact I tried to chop one tree down with a Nexstar. Didn't work.

Conehead,

Actually the Armory is larger than the dome used for the Columbus event. The armory celing is over 100' and the facility is much longer. The depth at the dome is more however.

The E-Fest pilot count is about double or a little more than Columbus and there are a few more vendors.

Both are excellent facilities, and very well run events. Attend both when you can guys!

I like to come to E-Fest Steve, I have to make choices, so this year I can't come.

There are always more pilots at E-Fest than at the Dome. E-Fest is a very nice event. They are really two different events.

I like to have mid-airs with you also Steve.

Orrin,

You will be missed this year. We always appreciate your enthusiasm for modeling.

Our mid-air was at the dome wasn't it? I hated it, simply don't like to see aircraft torn up.

I like E-Fest a lot, I think there are a few more mid-airs there, but I know that is life.

Yes Steve we tangled in the Dome, wasn't as bad as it could have been.

I get a few flights in at E-Fest, I go to look at what is new, see the scale contest, watch some other fly and to fly some in the micro area.

The event is one everyone should go to at least once. I have only missed two, so maybe next year.

It is a long way from here, as far as the Dome.

I love to watch people fly, Mark to shoot photos and find out about what is new and hope we will get some advanced info about future products.( that last part never seems to happen, but hints are helpful)

I know it takes a lot of time and money to put on an event like this, so I am always grateful for the sponsors and the industry people who make this happen. I love to see Frank run around now and then, at what seems like wits end, but he always has it under control. Frank has lots of great help.

Make sure we get lots of pictures of this event. Everyone knows that I love to look at pictures and see what is going on.

That way, since I can't be there, I at least can see some of what has happened.

You all have fun, That is an Order!!

did somebody say BOAT!.. YEA!

Hi Steve.

Yea the new 109 looks good but not as much detail as I would have liked. I did a bathroom remodel in the last 2 weeks so I think we both know what got more attention to detail!.. MY WIFE!

I did fly the 109 last weekend and it still needs more tuning. I did not suck the gear up yet.. Overall the machine looks nice and is baby butt smooth… so im hopeful.

My TT cobra is a little "off" so maybe we can bang heads and smooth it out some this weekend.

See ya at the show!

I attended E-Fest yesterday, and had a blast, as always. Many thanks go out to the event organizers and sponsors for a great event, especially Frank Noll, Dave Johnson, and the crew from Horizon Hobby. So, who's coming next year, and what are you bringing?
