Hitting a heli would be a hoot. But it'd probably cut a wing in half if you hit the blades first. My concern with that is simply one of safety. It'd have to be more of a demo where you flew out away from the crowd and a couple of planes tried to hit it. We can't have heli's flying around in the swarm because guys are running all over the field recovering downed planes.

Whatever... I'm going all out if I'm going to break a heli. Mini sub-machine guns, anti aircraft missiles, razor blades on the blade tips.... no flying wing will stand a chance... better leave the field until there are no wings left and I can land.

Actually, I'm waiting on a new tail servo from Hobby king.. you know how they ship. I may not have a little heli to destroy for another month. :/

Wow, what a wonderful morning.

Anyone there notice the guy doing torque rolls and touching his tail. Floating down upside down then harrier rolling along the grass. Very very nice demonstration.. I need to fly more!

I had a blast though. Nice landings, nice smoke on the 260. Flew all my batteries. Time to come home and play more holiday stuff.

Also, Please don't forget about our annual flying field cleanup this Thursday evening at 7:00 P.M. Bring gloves and any tools that will help the effort. Feel free to fly before and after the clean up. Thanks.

Thursday... Thursday....
Bad day for me. Haven't made it to a club activity on a Thursday yet. Probably won't. Guess there never will be a day that is good for everyone.

Anyone have some video from today's event? Sad I'll have to wait another year for that one.

Here are pictures from the Open House. They are not the best as they are from my cell phone. But since noone else has posted I figured they are better than nothing. I have some short video clips of Andrew Jesky's flights. I'll see if I can figure out how to post them in another post.
