AMA's 75th Anniversary!!!!

Sure wish I could have made it. It is happening right now!

if there happen to be anyone that did attend and that visit here (I know, wishful thinking of the 24 people that do come here) sure would be great to hear how it went?

Pictures are always a bonus.

Thanks,

I was there with my Emmaselle. Flew 4 time Friday, 4 times Saturday, and 2 times today. Was a blast and everyone had a great time.

I did not get many pictures as I was flying a bunch.

But here are a few. Yep, that is Emma for which the Emmaselle was named...

I have a few more of my plane I will try to get upload ASAP. But it seemed that everyone had a camera.
Thanks, DAG

Awesome DAG! Thanks for sharing your photos. Fantastic looking plane there. I sure wish I could have made it out to the celebration. I bet it was a blast. Two beautiful girls you have there is well. You are a lucky man.

BTW, did your B-36D make it out with you? If so, how did that go?

Thanks again,

Frank

Here's some that I got on Sunday. My son and I volunteered at the R/C dirt track both days, but we were able to get a break each day and take in some of the sights and events! It was hot, but excellent!

The Hughes Racer in 1/2 scale was AMAZING. Its from the movie, "The Aviator."

The last few photos are my son's Associated RC10T4 on the dirt track. He was gettin' it, so I was able to get some good action shots.

I was there Saturday. It was hot! Almost too many planes for me, but time away from home with my boy, worth everything to me!

I really hear you!

Like you I cherished the times I had with my son while enjoying the hobby. And I can tell you are not taking it for granted either.

Great pic.

It flew every day but Sunday. I think I heard they melted their exhaust. Very cool plane to see fly. Right under the 125 pound rule too.

I was really happy to meet so many cool people, everyone I met was topnotch.

Had a blast!!!

Thanks Frank, it was a blast.....
The B-36D is still about a year from complete.

She now has 48 servos, 10 motors, 19 batteries and over 800' of airline for the systems.

Thanks, DAG

Is there a build thread on that plane? Amazing. I love those big builds, very very cool.

Dude, you like really big airplanes don't you?
