Steve, what do you think about the ultra micro and similar mass launch?

Call it any model under 4 oz...

I think that will be a real hoot!

I'm hoping my new 50mm jets last to June.
I'm putting in a 6000kv 3S motor from Don's.

How about any size 1S plane mass launch?

Larry

PS HEY TOM. Do you have anything you could send me
on the XP-67 beyond 3 view drawings?

Lets include the 2 cell uMX models, too. I am still liking the 4 oz rule.....that covers all of them.

We could go to a 3 oz rule....would still cover all the uM, uMX and similar 1s and 2s micro models.

There is no problem showing up before Friday, Thursday is usually the day for putting up tents and getting in some practice flights. The next time I see Dale I will ask him about early set up and flying.

Yes, that is the way it always has been and I always show up before Friday. (Usually on Wed) BUT, I double checked and in 2012, Thursday was officially one of the event days, making it a 4 day event, not a 3 day event.

Was wondering why it went back to a three day event....

The 20th year celebration was the only offical 4 day event. But really, SMALL is a year round event.

Well, now that makes sense.

All the regulars will likely be there on Thursday, anyway....)
