This is actually Dave Colbert's Hangar 9 - 60 size Mustang, not a micro-aircraft landing on someones shoulder...

Ted Larson's F-18 Hornet. This has been the highlight of a couple of events I've attended, from my perspective. Magnificent detail, flying, and sound. I think Ted's heartrate was at full throttle long after he had the plane back on the ground.

The landing approach won't earn the Ace of the Year award - but the old saying that "any landing you can walk away from is a good landing" definitely applies to this aircraft ! I was wondering if one could put LG on one of those small foamy "jets" to practice up on high-speed approaches ?

Great action photos!

That's Dave Colbert's Hangar 9 - 60 size Mustang...

And Ted Larson's F-18 Hornet. Both are Hacker powered.

Hey Ralph,

I visit Fairfield a lot on business and have flown at some park just north of there with Fred Bronk. Where does the electric club fly in Vacaville?

Regards,

Thank you to all that came to Half Moon Bay and made this event a success at the Pioneer Electric Fly. We just luck out as the weather is about as perfect as Half Moon bay goes. I was out there Friday morning and the fog was so thick that it feel like rain.

Sheerluck, the, B-24 belongs to Jim Hendrid(sp?) of the Pioneer R/C Club. It is powered by 4 wattage motors(from the B-2 flying wing). The Quantas BAE146 is a Robbe kit owned by Konrad Dudek. Unfortunitely, the plane is no long with us. The Yellow Aeronca Champ with floats belongs to Jim Reimholz, powered by a sp400 with an olympus gear drive. Both pilots are members of the Penisula AeroModelers at Half Moon Bay.

SheerLuck and Perry, thanks for posting the pictures.

See you next year at the BAD 2003!

Brian

There is one thing that I would like to add about the Airbike that I think should really be mentioned.

The pilot, cowl, and engine in the front are all carved from foam, by the builder of the plane. And he also carved the prop out of wood, but I cant remember what kind.

I just thought that should be put out there, just because he did such an awsome job on it. You cant even tell that they are carved from foam.
