Agggggg too many planes.
Told myself I was not going to bring a whole lot of planes
I did a quick nose count and I'm over 20 already
So I'm well under the 40 I usually bring.

What are you bringing new this year? I did a list a few posts back.
I an trying to cut back a little this year...but partly because I have 5-6 new models to bring... The good old Sonic Liner needs a little TLC, so it will not come for the first time since 2004. Bringing a big foam B-17, so the smaller eRC foam B-25 will likely stay home.
I might end up with over 30 there, again.

Trying to get it all together.
Here's a few pictures of some of the planes I'll be bringing.
Still have to finish a TURN-ON, some micro planes, test fly some EDFs
and just plain STOP. NO MORE, I cant bring every plane.
The Red Dh-88, the Diamona, RBC F-22 twin EDF, HET F-104, Estes ASTROBLASTER, GLH II, Alpha Corsair, HL F-86 to name a few.
I even have another Hughes H-1 Racer to fly again after last years crash.
This time I reinforced the wingspar. Hopefully enough.
My workshop is a mess, with planes and parts piled everywhere.
I'm also finding that I'm in the need for some new batteries

It's got a few missing pieces.
One of the two plastic fake wingstruts is missing but easliy duplacated
from the other. They are not required for flight.
And I think I took off the wheel strut pants
So lets say some price that will end up with me with $50 in my hand
and a plane in yours.

Already have the "abused" planes patched up, fitted a few with better equipment and Im ready for my RC vacation. Got some making up to do for missing last year.
Rockets? can we really? I have a two stage 8 motor phoenix that has not flown.
The question is: who is brave enough to be on the field to light it off.

Like you even had to ask...
Planning on having model rocket size launchers there (good for up to 1 lb), plus a medium size launcher there for rockets up to around 3 lbs...how much does that Phoenix weigh?
I have a rocket boosted free flight glider MD-80 airliner in American Airlines livery that I have been meaning to show you for ages. I designed it back when I worked for HobbyLab in the early 1990s. Will bring it along.

Quick story and warning.
At work one night myself and a co-worker planed a rocket launch . just two guys planning a little fun.
The conversation was overheard and another said he had one sitting in the garage for years.
Within three days there was 19 guys and 40 something rockets at the site.
I timed it. There was a launch every 3 min for two hours until a teacher from the tech training center nearby asked us nicely to stop.
Seams all eyes was at the windows.
being almost out of engines we had to anyway.
Only about 17 rockets survived the day . . . . . four grass fires and two close calls. (Good thing I brought an extingusher)
My lesson? never arrange a "rocket launch" around aircraft mechanics.
I guess with OSHA and the FAA cramming safety down our throats every night we tend to "release" when we are off the clock.
Haven't weighed the rocket, just built it and been afraid to "light the fuse"
The Estes phoenix is one of the best flying rockets I've ever launched but I've never went multi motor multi stage before.
I'm afraid if it miss fires it will have a mind of its own.
I'll bring it along with the motors, maybe we can wait till after hours, club permission and way down range.
