Hi Terry. You are welcome to demo what ever you want. I have a demo spot reserved for you. Thanks for your support. Sunday is the rain date. I will keep you posted about any schedule changes.

BTW, make sure to bring any flyers you have for your KY fly-in. It will be a good place to distribute them. I will be there for sure.

No offical date for our e-fly. Looks like we will be sent to NEAT again. I will make sure Mike, Bob or you know. I tried to do a build post on here and have some people attacking my opionions and info. Same guy on FG too in my post there. I dont think Ill be posting much on here, my opinions and stuffs attacked because of what I learn and believe from flying and talking with pros and what they help teach me. Ill just fly at he shows for the sponsors. Shame people are like that. I know when we come to your show, we wont be looked at like we have not a clue of what we think, our set ups or how we fly. Thank your club, definately a great group of people. I hope Morris will be there. He never got back when I e-mailed him. Hes a great guy and knows alot of good information. I hated Bob dropped the ball on a project we wanted to do with him, I dont want him to think we havent stop asking for Bob to work with him.

Hi Jon. Where do you normally fly? You might want to drop by Hobby Express in the next few days and grab some of the free raffle tickets...

Dave,
I am sure those who have never been there would find it interesting to know about the power supply set up at the feild. There might be a few less batteries charged tonight-LOL.
We still need an extension cord and inverter(MENT POWER SUPPLY) Right?

What is the setup? Do just need to bring a 110v extension cord and my 110v/12v power supply to charge from?

Thanks,

We have approximatley one dozen 120VAC outlets on the fence line for the sole purpose of battery charging. You wont need an inverter so much as you will need a DC power supply. A short (~25ft) extension cord will be needed if you pit far from the fence line. We will have a 150', three outlet extension on each side to bring juice to those in the "boonies"!

Unfortunately not, working in Erlanger and living in Loveland, its a bit far out of my way for a mid-week run I'll stop by on a weekend as I have never been to the store and would like to peruse their stock.

I'll be there around 8am with an e-z-up and a selection of the fleet to sacrifice to the gravity gods....

Jon.

I'm sorry, I thought since it's in Loveland it would be easy for you to get to. See you tomorrow!
