Its Wednesday 12 noon as I make this post and realize we only a few days left to put the final flights and touches on our scale ships.

Again I would like to thank Hobbico, Flying Models, and our Judges (Along with our great efest Sponsors) for helping make this event happen.

Also.. Before I get caught up in all the busy I want to make sure I wish all this year’s competitors GOOD LUCK!

Counting down to go time and Agree!.. +1 for Flying Models Magazine!

Although Iím not flying in the contest I will be bringing my "O boy itís been one thing after another C3" to tickle the rafters with. It was mid aired on its maiden fight two years ago. I rebuilt it but its TwIsTeD and crappy.. Still one has to bring a scale!

LETS FLY SCALE!

I remember that event. I was so bummed and of course Mike just said Oh well.

I am glad you are rebuilding that very nice airplane.

Will be nice to see that in the air. I missed it 2 years ago when it had the unfortunate mid-air and never got to see it fly.


Nice job on the repair!

Orrin,

I race RC boats. Touching and "mid airs" for lack of a better term are just a part of this 60+ MPH game.

My Yellow Corvette Z0-6 Boat at the 2012 Indy Masters! O YEA!
