Best 2012

I havent been on this forum for a while, but I did attend the 2012 best fun fly in New Waverly this past Saturday. I was the guy that flew the only scale electric helicopter of the meet which was the Hirobo Lama Sa-315. there is a picture of it with me flying it on this discussion a few pages back. Also I was the one with the biggest plane there at 16 feet which was the ASH-26 modern scale German glider launched with a home built dolly. I was wondering if anyone captured either some pictures or a flight video of this big bird? If so, who ever you are can you please post pictures or even better a flight video ,if you have one.

Many thanks,
Mike

Typically, there are more criteria for the biggest model at an event like this than which one has the largest wingspan. Otherwise, a large glider would be a shoo in ...

At my meet, I select the biggest electric by taking the wingspan in feet and multiplying by the weight in pounds. That evens the field between very large gliders and very large power models.

I did enjoy seeing your large ASH-26 fly....lovely.
