I agree its outrageous! O wait, this was not a STATIC scale competition. The judges must have seen something they really liked in the F-4 flight. Get your butt here next year and be a judge

L39 One of a kind custom paint. Hard work. One of a kind fan install. Good sound. Great craftsmanship.

Eflight F4. Well any tard can build it. Only thing custom is the wrinkles in the monocoat.

I understand they where a sponser but to shaft a guy that comes every year and works his tail off to build a great plane is wrong. The little guy lost with a better plane. Heck I thought box stock ARFs where not even allowed.

Roger is a friend of mine so I might be a little biased Great plane Roger!

Did you fly in the scale competition? I don't remember seeing you fly in it but then again I was busy with other stuff and didn't watch all of it...

During your re-evaluation can you put an emphasis on spectator management. IMHO I thought this years setup was terrible as it forced spectators into a smaller area vs the other field where you could park and or sit close to the runway. I have been to 100+ events over the last 25 yrs and the best events had this type of setup.

Thanks,

Dennis

Well guys, this is not the update I would like to give but we have decided not to hold E-Jets international any more. Not sure if this will change in the future but at this point it is the case.

The E-Jets International team would like to thank all of the sponsors, pilots, and vendors that made it possible it was definitely alot of fun!

Sorry to hear the news Kevin, I know a lot of work has gone into developing this into a world class event. Is it totally cancelled, or will it be resurrected under a broader format (ie. EDF and turbines)?
