Photos: 3 Logos at DFW Fun Fly

Three Logos and two Piccolo Pros on Friday among three pilots: Jmogl, Jaggies, & Danal Estes. A third Pic Pro was added by Jmogl on Sunday. All six were flown at the fly in, and Jaggies, who is skilled enough to fly Aerobatic / 3D, caused quite a few "That's an electric?!" and "I didn't know one of those micros could fly in this wind?!" comments with his Piccolo. Lots of questions asked and answered about all of the Logos. Maybe a few new e-pilots on the way...

Also met up with Black96z on Sunday. As his thread commented, there was some spectacular night flying Saturday night. Perhaps next year some of the spectacle can be electric.

Tried to get a hover shot of the three Logo 10s. This is a hard photo to get... anyway:

There were a few glow helis as well

In fact, only one logo in this photo, and no Piccolos.

While jaggies Piccolo flying attracted a lot of attention, far fewer comments about the Logo 10 aerobatics... I think people just assumed it was a 30 glow heli. The sound would be a clue, except there were always multiple helis in the air...

There were some more directed questions when people wanted to see a Logo fly. I can't do any aero (heli flying for about 3 months), but people seemed interested in climb rate and a few other things I can demo. Lots of interest.

Danal,

We had a great time! I will post some more pictures when I get a chance.

See you next week at the field!

I really appreciate Jim's help in getting my new Logo 10 and Piccolo Pro in the air in time for the fun fly. I wouldn't have made it without his help!

Jeff

Good show. I would have been there if I hadn't gone to SEFF in Georgia. I didn't realize there were that many Logo fliers in the area.

You guys should come out to the Heli Heat Wave next month in Ft. Worth. More info here: www.fwthunderbirds.org

I'll be there with my e-helis as well.

Hey Danal,

I'm glad we got to meet up with you. We had a blast.

We may have the beginnings of an anual event here But next time, someone turn down the heat!! (Pant, pant, pant..). I know. I'm weak. I'm spoiled by California weather.
