The hail storm damage has had me running in circles. I'll try to nail down the airport this week.

Lost heli

Hi guys

Somewhere out in "No Man's Land" is my heli. It lost signal while I was on base-leg. I've attached an aerial photo where it may be (ignore the star). If you see it, let me know.

Thanks,
Russ

Yeah. I flew all day with no problems. I was on my last battery, turned from downwind onto base-leg and the heli stopped responding to my commands. It just kept flying east. Who knows where it is.

Confirmed! September 9th is a go for Port Clinton, Ottawa County Airport RC Event! This is part of the airport's expanding efforts to promote general aviation along with the opening of the new museum.

I'll get more details on times, etcetera. Let me know what you need. The airport will be closed a half-day for our event. The more, the merrier!

Special Thanks!

'Special Thanks' go out to Bucky, Ray, Doug, and a very kind mystery person, all whom have helped me to search for my heli and make sure something doesn't 'eat me' out there. After 10+ hours on the ground and aerial views, still no heli. That is one thick place!

Helicopter Found!

Thank you EVERYONE who made a gallant effort to help me find my helicopter! It was much farther away than I suspected. Fortunately, it suffered only minimal mechanical damage.

Sept 9th Huriot Flying Event at Port Clinton Airport

We're putting the final details together this week. Looks like a 10a-4pm static display inside the new museum with flying from 1 to 3pm. Everyone in the club is welcome to fly! Just let Bucky know that you want to fly so that he can get you a slot.

Historic Fun Fly

A HUGE success! Hundreds of people attended! Dozens of pilots put on a spectacular show! We raised hundreds of dollars for the museum!

Thanks to everyone who attended, flew, volunteered, and helped to make this a successful event. I'm glad that I took pictures before the event started. I was too busy once the first plane took off!
