#3 resilient

The EPP is on the nose and the bottom half of fuse and absorbs impacts. what happens a lot with a depron nose-in crash is the fuse breaks just behind the wing and sometimes the motor mount gets damaged, not so with "the DEPP"


Come on over to the Expo and check it out!

so whats the skinny on the NWEF booth being told they couldnt be where they setup at, and then Lon didn't like the new location so he packed up and went home?

You guys that were there..what was the story with him having to change locations?
I thought the locations were assigned.

This Threlon is too cool, uses a 2S 180mah pack. I asked him how it compared to the micro 4site and he laughed -- no comparison, the Threlon flies like a 40"!

Vitter, no need on those 1300s, I got plenty, I was just wondering if Cry needed any.

Cry I test flew the Extra and it's flying pure. Should fly a lot like your 35%.
Which extra Flop?

Daniel,

Do you guys just spray paint your planes with a tape stencil for the design? You and your brother (?) have some of the best looking DWs I see! Nice job.

I spoke with Lon today and here's the skinny on the NWEF booth at the expo.
Lon had been communicating with the director of the event for a couple of months,
and he had been promised a booth at the expo, a table in the swap meet section, and 4
VIP passes for club members to man the booth and the swap meet table.
Lon had invested quite a bit of money in this, having posters made and t-shirts for sale.
Lon got up at 4am friday, arrived early and set up the NWEF booth. He had brought his HDTV for videos, as well as his other stuff. He had set up the TV a bit off to the side to avoid crowding at the booth so the traffic flow would be smooth.
Later on (I don't know what time of day) The event staff asked him to pack up and move the booth to a smaller table. This space was far from adequate room for what Lon had brought with him to present. Also, use of the swap meet table was revoked. All swap meet space had been sold out. Lastly, the 4 promised VIP passes had been revoked, so that staff members who were coming to sit and man the stations all day would have to wait in line and pay the entry fee.

The event coordinators did not seem to honor their word by changing the arrangements for the NWEF club presence at the last minute. Lon took time to carefully make a decision, and he decided not to stay at the expo. I can understand that organizing an event like this isn't easy, and that being overbooked is a good problem to have for the event organizers. I wasn't there and I don't know all of the factors of the equation, but it was indeed an unfortunate turn of events.

Well that sucks...Wonder if Lon got everything in writing or if it was a gentleman's agreement and the other guy wasn't a gentleman!

Hmmm... Maybe it is a good thing I could not make it. John Fogleman (show director) was trying to get me to come down and show/sell all the lights. He offered me a front row both for free and all sorts of other things. Guess it was a good thing I did not take it! I hope you guys had fun though and hopfelly Azhars experience is better than that^^^.

Robert went to the expo and said that he had a lot of fun. He picked up some sweet anodized servo arms and aluminum wheels from Azhar. When I build my 71" plane I think I'll do the same, those accessories and equipment that he sells look fantastic! He also said that Flopgun put on an amazing show with an Extreme Flight 3D plane that was astonishing! He was impressed with some of the daring moves that he performed on a plane that he had never flown before. I wish I could have seen it.

eguas, yes, we paint our DW foamies with spray cans and paper/tape templates that we cut out ourselves. Glad you like them!

Looks like ya'all had a blast at the show! Looking forward to videos of your flying Flop!
