I missed last year. But this year ill be sure to come.
My indoor hangar only shows 2 planes
A Techone Piaget and a Donuts Models SUltimate
Do you think we should try F3p at the event? Im still pondering if im going to build a Donuts models Deluxe F3p.

You're more than welcome to use the time to practice. We'd love to see some F3P! The kids would really enjoy it.
Anyone who still has a few surviving planes from KIEF should come and play with us! I saw that bluecor aircraft carrier at EFEST last year. Maybe it could float it's way down to Lansdale.

Other winter events are possible but not probable. It's really hard to book both gyms. There's the possibility of an 'open gym' set up where we just show up and fly. (no tables, no electricity, etc...)
The plans are to have an early March fun-fly in 2010. I'd like to keep having two a year, as long as we get community support and gym availability.
The kids are really excited about the event! One made an awesome video about it.
(Email or PM me if it the link doesn't work)
Only eight days left!
