Fly-In
DFW Area August 2&3, 2008 3D Hobby Shop and the 114th RC Aero Squadron Flyin

The first 3D Hobby Shop Fly-in will be August 2 & 3 at the 114th RC Aero Squadron Field in Grapevine, Texas.

The fly-in is a gathering of 3DHS fans and those that would like to learn more about 3DHS products. All types of aircraft will be welcome in addition to the stable of 3DHS planes. Ben Fisher and friends will be flying and demonstrating his products thoughout the weekend. He might even take the wraps off some cool new project.

and more information will be available at the 114th's web site http://114thrc.org/

The club’s Grapevine field has a large grass runway and electrical outlets in the pit area. We are also planning have a raffle sponsored by 3DHS.

There will be snacks and drinks during the day. If the weather is good we'll stick around for some night flying.

For those people arriving by land the field in located 5 minutes North of Hwy 114 on the border between Southlake and Grapevine. Take the Carroll Exit from the West and the Kimball Exit from the East.

For those arriving by air the field is about 15 minutes Northwest of DFW airport and about 35 minutes from Dallas Love Field.

There are many hotels and tourist attractions in the area. See http://www.grapevinetexasusa.com/ for a listing of things for your family to do in Grapevine such as Shopping, riding a Steam Railroad from Downtown Grapevine to the Fort Worth Stockyards, playing in the Waterpark at Great Wolf Lodge, or a Spa Day at the Gaylord Texan Resort.

Lodging is available to suit almost any budget from high end resorts to budget hotel such as Super 8 to the Vineyards Cabins and Campground. http://www.grapevinetexasusa.com/Pla...1/Default.aspx

Dry camping (No electric or water hookups is available in Meadowmere Park which is located next to the Club Field. Camping

Wendell is the man for answering questions, but at all the previous fly-ins I've been to at this field, there were no restrictions on power source. Sometimes there is an electric-only period in the early afternoon if there is a quiet event going on at the adjacent city/lake park.

So, as of now, we're planning on bringing electric and gas, unless notified otherwise.

Of course!! Diesel and CO2 too if you have them. While we do not ban turbines, the field is not really set up to accommodate most turbine jets. We always have a good time when Ben drops by our field to fly and this event is an extension of those days. Just this time we are inviting all 3DHS addicts to stop by for a fix.

There are some houses nearby so electric is normally preferred during the early morning hours and there is normally ~20 minute break in flying around 7 pm to if there is a wedding at the chapel next door. Small silent airplanes can still be flown during the wedding.

Yea! Nice to see my local club doing an event like this. While I am not a member yet with 114th I will be soon. I flew a couple times at their field last year to get a feel for the area and the people and really enjoyed both. I will definitely be up for this event.

Alright...so, here's what we're planning:

1.We'll be putting on a 3DH raffle with some ARF aircraft and accessories. Proceeds will go to the club, hopefully everyone will participate so we'll be asked back again.

2.It looks like food will be available at the field, working on details now.

3.We'll try to bring Scott Stoops and Andrew Jesky in to fly, but both of these guys are very busy, so we will have to wait and see if their schedules work out, but both said they'd try.

4.We'll bring airplanes to sell in case anyone needs to replace theirs.

5.I'm sure we'll have some new planes to demo.


more to come....

It sounds like a lot of fun, looking forward to it. Note to anybody not from Texas, it's very hot in August.

We have water on tap at the field. If it gets really hot we can turn on the sprinklers.


There is a grill on site so we may have burgers and dogs for donations.

I'm IN!!

I have every intention of being there unless some unexpected emergency prevents it! I think my mentor, Joe Gross will be there too and probably another buddy of mine as well so Altus, Oklahoma will be well represented! I would appreciate any additional info on the dry camping site adjacent to the field to include speculation on whether Our Rig will fit into the dry camping area. REALLY looking forward to this event!

Definitely looking forward to this one. For anyone out there who hasn't flown with the 3DHS crew....you're in for a treat. One word of caution though...the peanut gallery will yell "LOWER" at you while flying your beloved 3DHS planes. Resistance is usually futile, so make sure to bring plenty of CA!!
