Chris: I have been thinking about designing a glider like the ones we did at Columbus and getting them CNC or lasercut into the pieces for handouts, with the website cut in prominently of course.....might make a mess if they're flying all over the show, though....

Steve: unfortunately we will never see anything significantly thicker than the current MPF product as that's pretty much the capability of the process. They do go thinner, but not for our purposes.

Larry ross passed away at the age of 68

Hi LENNY,
It's Lana, Larry Ross's wife. It is with great sadness but even greater peace that I have to tell you that Larry passed away a week ago today. It took me a while to find your emails. Would you let the RC Groups know that Larry is with the Lord and healed completely now and that in lieu of flowers, there is a memorial fund: Larry D. Ross Memorial Fund at ANB Bank, 569 32 Road, Grand Junction, CO 81504. We need help with the final expenses.

Thank you for being a wonderful friend to Larry. We will scatter his ashes from an RC airplane and a regular plane over Branson, MO sometime this spring.

receiving this today 01/14/2013 was very painful to me cause we had Skyped
12/11/2012..
All the old timers remember Larry for his skill's with sketchup and PDF plans for this forum and many more..
he was always building and some of you new guys should look up his name

Gator: she looks super and flys super too! Watching th vid, I just had to do the rcspeedo check with my phone, and I got a bunch of readings in the 40mph range and one at 75 (but i think that was a fluke as it was a climbing turn right in front of you . But 40 mph ain't too shabby! Congrats!

Thanks! I don't know how fast it goes, all I know is it turns into a dot fast and I have to bank-n-yank!

A FB and I have built a series of dekan F-22s from MPF. Stiffer than the original EPP and a lot more resilient than the FFF from which the first series of such planes were built. Even crashed hard -- and I mean, like, hard -- into the ground these plane are easy to repair and get flying again. Now the FB is going to start making these planes as RTF units for the indoor crowd out at White Pines Golf Dome. He needs me to supply him with MPF, servos, motors, ESCs, etc. I'm out of MPF and can't order another box until some client or other decides to pay a bill! Damnation!

Here's my first plane from MPF, it's a OV-10, with a 40" WS. Almost ready for final assembly and paint.
