Sorry to hear that! Even if you can't stand/launch/fly very much, please bring a plane and TX, and maybe hold an impromptu clinic on DLG setup. Show us your flight modes, diff/expo settings, control surface travels, and CG. There's just never enough time during a contest for a systematic discussion. I still don't like the way my planes fly, but hope to catch that elusive nugget one day - maybe it'll be this Saturday!

All: Bring a notebook to capture the info ...

Cheers, Charles

No promises I'll make it yet. But if I do, I'll be happy to help out.
I'll post as I know more...

Guaging Interest

How many of you would be interested in attending a contest in 'Fabulous' Las Vegas? Possibly in the month of February?

There is nothing formal or even in the planning stages, just trying to gauge interest...

If I've got a plane, I'll totally do it. Rooms in LV are really cheap right now, and I don't get sucked in by the "glitz and glamor." It'll be like a birthday present to myself! I know there's at least a few other AZ DLG pilots that have birthdays in February.

Run a clear plastic hose out of it and tell them it's your oxygen tank.

Interested ... but .. this year, we had 2 Arizona DLG contests in February (SWC and AZ Open), and there's a good chance that could happen again in 2013. Contact the guys at CASL.net for the SWC, and Shhhh! or Pocket Rocket for the AZ Open.
