This was a nightmare of a plane to even get, it took over a year! Then about 6-8 months of build. Still not completely done scale details. It's got a handful of flights under it's belt and is such an awesome plane. It's a 110" wingspan with a 60cc EME in the nose. Dry weight of 23.5lbs

HOW - October 24-28
Itís about three months away but I want to take a minute to let those of you who donít know the dates for HOW are October 24-28 . I hope everyone that has attended in the past will return and Iím hoping to see new faces also. So please tell all your friends about us. Itís a fun fly/3D/Jet event. We welcome all models. As far as the event goes. We are pretty laid back here on the Farm. Use your common sense and there will be no problems.

As you know we donít charge a landing fee.

We will have some sort of meal for you Thursday,Friday and Saturday night at no Charge. We may throw something together for lunch on some days.

I have no idea about a raffle. I havenít asked anyone for any donations for prizes. I didnít last year and some awesome people gave us some great prizes to give Away.

There is electricity at the barn and we have 2 flushable toilets. There will be porta pottyís there also. There is no running water .

As I think of other things I will post them here.

If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask me here or on Facebook (Rusty Trawick)

It is absolutely amazing how quickly the workshop gets so much clutter in so short of time when working on a project. Need to tidy up cause I'm sure I'll come home from Fall Nall with more than I took there.😁😁

Finally got the smoke system on and programed! Tons of smoke!! B &B specialties smoke muffler, I soldered and drilled smaller holes in pressure fittings. Sonic Tronics programmable smoke pump, B&B smoke oil.....I must say; smoke system setup, installation and programming is very time consuming in order get the results you want!

My wife is a RN and brings me these single-use cautery pens that's doctors use to burn a hole in a fingernail or what not then get thrown away. You can cut the back end off and replace the AA batteries when dead. They are the best tool I've ever found for cutting holes in covering when building a plane. Gets red hot instantly!

Some guys flying an rc plane crashed it in the top of a tree, all while a pilot in a full scale helicopter watched the incident. The chopper pilot then retrieves said rc plane and returned it. Cool stuff!!
