Tom Hoopes gave a glowing report on the Hitec 2.4GHz module for use in JR transmitters all the way back to the 347. It has top-line workmanship and a plethora of telemetry options. He will be flying his Pegasus 2 aerotow plane with this.
Tom also talked a little about the latest HobbyKing Turnigy lipo charger. It will charge 4 batteries at a time at up to 10 amps each; the newer model of what Mike Gibson is using.

The club bylaws were read which related to officer nominations, elections, and duties

Presentation by Tom Hoopes on airplane setup and trimming

As always, an excellent presentation by Tom. We all learned something.
