Arizona Jets Nov 19, 20, 21

This is one of the few events that I look forward to visiting and participating in. In the prior years it was very exciting, The XPS group was there with several large EDFs and it was nice seeing the AZ guys that post on a regular basis here in RCG. Many of you guys came from out of town and the crowd was great, the participation was great and the expectations of fun and neat airplanes were fulfilled.

In addition, the real jet sound was a WOW factor for me and last year there were some really nice birds that flew. Some of those old guys in AZ sure know how to fly those turbines.

Sooooo...What happened to this year, not a peep about the event?

I, like some others, might be re-thinking attending the event this year, there is no hype, no excitement, nothing. I would really like to hear from the sponsors, the organizers, the participants, wouldn't you?

Bob,

Fix what fell off the Panther, buff up the tip tank, and rechage those batteries. If I can get a Neu motor for Tam, and he can finish up his EDF for me I will be at the event with another Panther.

Based on what I experienced that last month at BETW, my home field, and your field, the crowd loves T-33s and Panthers. Something different for them to see.

Mike warren and I will be there. Mike has his Maverick with Stumax 100-45, A6 Crusader with MW44 and hopefully a Mirage with a Stumax 90mm.

The Tazor I had at Ohio will be there with me at the helm.

Impulse buying? Perhaps, but the reasons and the stories that support this crazyness are long and boring.

One thing for sure, investment material, no. But sometimes the love for airplanes takes over and I am so sick of installing servos and mixing epoxy. A nice looking, well built plane at a good price is hard to turn down.

Looking forward to seeing you guys again and breaking your balls in person.
