A mixture of what I think was a DC-3 along with (I think) a SU-34 and one of the new Habu 2's.

I know this was Jim's big Tiger Moth Bi-plane. Another Harrier candidate on the landing.

What I think is maybe a .90 size heli as it was BIG. I had my share of problems keeping up with this one too. It may have been big but it was flying really fast and often really high.

I uploaded all of them with the "creative commons attributions" to make them accessible and usable for creating whatever you might want from them too.
If it turns out I missed setting the flag on any of them let me know.

I won't make it up today since it's a scheduled race day for the boats at Ackerman.

Brian and I always need more room for the amount of planes we want to bring to events. We thought this time, we could bring everything we wanted to. Even with this truck, my van and trailer still had probably 15 planes between us we couldnt bring. We need a bigger truck next time I suppose.

I've been subscribed to both of those for quite some time now. I mostly "lurk" though. Wish I could have been there for Sunday as well as the winds in Sarasota were even worse than they were at Watt Fest on Saturday.
I'm one of the spokes in the wheel for our FE boat club though and when we're running, expected to be there.

I thought that might be your's but wasn't totally positive.

This was a great event, great time, total fun! I thought you all did a great job running the event, everything was awesome and so very well run! We had a great time, no doubt we'll be there next year! Thank you to the club, CD and everyone that made it happen!

I had a great time! You guys did an excellent job. The event was well organized and laid back. My kind of event!

I even got to fly a few models despite the wind and was pleasantly surprised to win the most unusual aircraft award. I found that kind of ironic, with all the trouble I go through to scratch build scale models, a goofy foamie wins!

I was sort of disappointed to have totaled my micro Hellcat but it never flew that good anyway. My Stuka is extensively damaged but repairable and my Skyraider suffered a broken landing gear after the wind blew it away. That's half my micro fleet damaged but not too bad considering the wind speed.
The upside is there was a great video shot of my micro FW190 and it is now trimmed out and flying very well. My PBY flew well too, that was only it's third flight and it handled the wind ok.

Looking forward to next year! I hope this event will grow and become like a mini SEFF with more vendors and maybe a 3 day format.
Thanks again for a great event and a good time!
Glenn

it is strange what people like.. but keeps it honest and shows what the people like.
i certainy heard enough "scotty" type jokes while it was flying. But at least it could fly..
I thought it looked really good in the wind.. because it could fly slowly like it was a starship instead of a fast flying plane.
