yes I fly the dog track. Its a much smaller field though. Its at 1792 and seminola , right at the dog track. There are 4-7 or so who will show early saturday mornings , Glen is one of them who is always there at this time. He builds his own planes and experiments with things quite scientifically ,so just chatting with him can be as good as flying. I havent been able to fly anywere other than my own lake for a while so there may be more who fly there now. If anyone needs better directions just ask.

Brad

PS Good to hear from you again Jim!

Welcome back and yes, this SUPER STAR is just great! I Love the way she floats around! Lots of control and very good looking model.

Carlos,
PM me with your e-mail address & I will send you some good photos of an aileron mod that someone sent me for the SuperStar. I never got around to doing it before selling it. Would probably fly similar to a big E-Starter ! About the same amount of dihedral....

Jim

Jim (Fishdeth), I sent you a PM!

Gang,

Yesterday early evening was just GREAT with Richard, Gerry and the guy with the ProJeti Push Jet with AF 020. Oh, the gentleman known as Dave N' Dad was out there too just to watch.

Had two flights with GWS PT-17 STEARMAn and two flights with that fantastic HOBBICO SUPER STAR EP. The SUPER STAR took off from the ground everytime and just zoomed upwards with just tremendous climb characteristics! The power setup is just perfect!

I managed to demonstrate the slow flying charateristics of the SUPER STAR to all at the field as well! She can be slowed down very well!

As you can imagine, I was able to make the SUPER STAR to perform two wonderful large loops at half throttle!

Carlos.

Sorry! You are pretty much a permanent fixture out there and your BEARCAT performed most excellent! Those very large loops are breath taking!

Looks like the winds will calm down nicely from today !

See you all there.

Jim
