It's fly at your own risk. They seem like fun. Would you like to demo it for a few minutes during noontime? I could allow you to fly in the stands as well. I would hate to see the thing get shredded by a prop.

The raffle prizes are starting to show up. I received 9 speed controls from Castle Creations! We're really thankful for their vendor support!

No, AMA is not required. I make my students get it and encourage everyone to get it for supporting our national organizations.

Although Santa didn't bring me any flying toys this year I'm still excited about the event this coming January 26th! I have to put the finishing my Park Scale Models Maule 7 that I started two months ago.
