That's OK....... I don't go to either of those events.

I have had a 9-11 fly-in the last 2 years, but it was on the weekends both times...
this is in lieu of that.

I assume you'd have your FPV gear there as well? We're really hoping to make the fall HH event this year. Dang horse shows have prevented us the past 2 years, but I love the relaxed atmosphere..

Yeah....Ill have it at both events....pecan patch and hodges. Im sure Marko will bring his rig to HH as well. We set up on the far west end of the field at HH last year and gave some rides. We will bring a buddy box this year and let some folks give it a try. May even do a noon demo.

Should have my quad on FPV by then as well.....Ill fly it los till I get familar with it.

Its not too far from the dustbowl. Its a soccer park so its not flyable during soccer seasons in the evening and on saturdays. AM times are wide open on weekdays year round.

My work schedule is kinda crazy so I dont get many sundays off. If you want to meet up there one evening on a weekday and fly some fpv I can do that. I belive soccer is not active now until school starts back. Ive got a couple of other good FPV sights in Canton as well.

Ill throw the 59 Slick in the truck as well.
