Grr! Shoulda went out even without the motor. That looked awesome. Great video too, I'd say one of the best, if not #1 Loved it when the guy pulled out the BB gun

Joe- Thanks for the offer! I may get a 350 from the LHS if they have them, I've heard they're a lot better.

Guys- If I make it out to the bowl, I'll probably be practicing my freestyle (http://cafreestyle.com/ie3d.htm ). Hopefully no one minds the music. None of the freestyle is really offensive, most of it is movie soundtracks and instrumentals If you really can't stand the music, just ask me to put on headphones.

I like that map you posted. Man, I had no idea you guys were going to be flying way out there. Back when I lived in Phx, we used to fly out in that area. It was an auxiliary runway for what was then Williams AF


jperch I remember that Auxilary Field at Williams Airbase. I use to fly there when I was in High School back in 87. After I joined the Military 89 RC flying stopped for a long Time. What Ever happened to that Field. I always wondered.

Hi guys, I have been told the Chandler Bowl is a great place. So one of these days I will check it out. I am in Glendale so it will be a Journey. I am currently building a Formosa and will be getting the gear for it today.

Welcome...

We have a good bunch of people on Sat and Sunday mornings, from 8:30 on to maybe noon. We (somewhat casually) use a frequency board on kind of an honor system.

See: Flying at the Chandler Bowl / Club Chat for directions.

Welcome jacob, come on down any time. The bowl is a great place to spend a day or two of your weekend. Hopefully as these weeks move along I'll be getting more time to get down there myself.

Guy's I posted a thread with that video. After some thought, I figured it was worth sharing the experience.

Dan, did you get to do the freestyle with music from home? I was looking forward to that on Sunday.

Kenny..

Jacob- Welcome! The Bowl is a great place to fly, you'll love it.

Kenny- Couldn't make it out there, I lost my ride at the last minute. I'll probably be out next week, though. Freestyle stuff is pretty fun, although you really end up hating the song after practicing a lot

Rich- you could zip it, then attach it. Sounds neat.

Jacob,

If you can make it Sunday I'll have the SwitchBack you P.M.ed me about. It's worth the trip down here just to meet all the guys.

I can second that opinion. I made a 1000 mile trip from Texas to meet these guys. It was a great day and I hope to do it again soon.

Hey, I will see if I can make it on Saturday or sunday.

I have all the gear in my Formosa and have been taxing it around to break in the gear. I still need to do some minor stuff to it and it should be ready to go. I sure do not like the stock wheels that came with it.

I second that. I had some humungous Maxx wheels that weighed next to nothing and allowed me to taxi with fine control over uncut grass and anything else.
