I went to the fun fly today , a GREAT time was had by all ! The day started with the Corona clubs swapmeet , I did rather well selling a bunch of "extra" stuff , We had plenty of cold drinks on a very hot day , had some very entertaining demo's , then there was the edf comp. which was also very fun to watch , and then a very nice raffle ( i won a complete plane with radio ) then there was some very good pizza served ( by the nitro girls i might add ) all in all the only thing i would change was the heat , so my congrats again to Nitro Planes for running a very, very well run fun fly , there was tons of pizza and drinks left over , i really hope they do it again next year ! THANKS ! .... Dennis

That's me and my son in the You Tube Shortcut ... LOL WE had a blast.
Our un-club The Chino Renegades R/C Flyers Club had a big showing at the event. Our club blog has a lotta pictures and entries about it starting here. http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/show...35751&page=526 Post 13144 and forward
R. Vincent is a member our club and he won the grand prize in the raffle .. A 500$ gift cert.


But here's just some of my pictures,. The noon demo pilot Nightflyer Dave crashed a couple and the Nitro planes guys gave my son that 70 mm F-18 which he repaired and it flys great
