Warbirds at Mid Am Electric Fly-In 2009/ near Ann Arbor, MI

The Guru of electric fight, Keith Shaw, is co-hosting the ump-teenth annual (they lost count MANY years ago) Mid-America Electric Fly-In, this coming weekend (July 11 ~ 12, 2009) near Ann Arbor, Michigan.

People from around the world (REALLY, some come from accoss 'the pond') have been coming for years, to show and see the latest and greatest e-powered aircraft and gear.

Keith always puts on a great show himself: he has built MANY award winning aircraft over the years. His models have won various awards (many for best finish/ most beautiful) at the Toldeo shows, among other R/C events, competing against the fuel powered aircraft.

Ken Myers, the other co-host, has been a proponent, and for many years: chief spokesman for electric fight. He was publishing and mailing (long before e-mail existed) his monthly newsletter the "Ampeer", along with the slogan: "The Future is Electric":

And here are videos of 2 warbirds that I will be bringing on Sunday:
Hangar 9 Corsair- Electric Powered/ Highly Modified (5 min 40 sec)

Top Flite 1/7 scale P-51D Mustang ARF Electric Powered (3 min 37 sec)


Both videos are over a year old: Corsair now has Lado retracts with RoboStruts, Mustang now has LG doors installed and a slightly bigger battery (up from 6S 5000mAH to 6S 5200mAH) and bigger prop. Both have many other modifications, including retract tailwheel on 'Stang.

Hope to see some fellow RC Groups warbird pilots there.
