Sitting in Kandahar Afghanistan and missing SEFF!


Hey folks, just wanted to wish you all happy landings again this year at SEFF! Of course, I made it last year with the 13 foot SRT/10 flying wing that you all got to see fly then crash! The year before, I was in Bagram, Afghanistan, so I missed out. I will be there next year though!

So, ya'll drink a beer for me, have a flight for me and just generally have a great time!

Enjoy, I'll be thinkin about what Im missing... again.... while Im out here flying missions!

Sure thing, Laine. We'll all drain a lipo in your honor. You keep doing your thing over there and you'll be home before you know it.

And I'm ready to buy a Kandahar RC Club shirt or two when they're available!

Go Army!

Joel, Matt, Jack and I will sure miss you this year. The XXXL SR-10 was a real labor of love and IMHO it flew very well right up to the end.

You stay safe while you're keeping us safe.

Thanks guys. I wear my Bagram RC Club tshirt around "the house" every night here along with a pair of gym shorts. Cant go outside like that, but its great for sleeping!

You guys should gather up everyone who has one at SEFF and get a picture! I cant believe how many people got them last year! Every fun fly I went to I saw some. Pretty cool deal because all of us who have them helped raised a TON of money for the Fisher House!

Have fun guys!

Wearing mine at work today. I'll be wearing it at SEFF too.

With no 13 foot flying wing to help get in the air, I'm not sure what I'll do with all the spare time I'll have this year. Maybe I'll fly a plane or two.

Stay safe so you can join us next year, Laine.

Yeah, it just won't be SEFF without walking out onto the field to pick up my Corsair, and looking down to see a 13' wing coming in on final!

lol, Yeah Joel, we worked our butts off on that thing along with plenty of help from other people! I really cant thank you enough for all you did to help me with that thing. Heck you barely flew all week! Thank you again!

Wish I could have gotten my next project under way already but, it'll have to wait I guess. So, John, you'll have to wait another year to get your butt scared off!

You guys have fun and post some pictures!
