A couple of generations old, but still does a pretty good job.

Thanks man, I appreciate it! My Extreme flight EXP's make me look good!

Lawn mower,

Cool picks! You got me in the middle there.. I was hustling to the flight line with my Blue Extra 48" EXP. I also flew a red one. The EF Extra's are my favorite plane! I also have a 78" version on the build table, and a NEW 60" Extra EXP on the way!

Dave Rieco (AKA Yellow Spider) took his Transall C-160 for a couple of spins around the park.
You just have to love those twin cargo military planes. So Graceful and beautiful.

Nice flying Dave.

Paul Thomas of Cortland New York brought his RC Guys 33% Pitts to fly for his first Neat Flight. Paul's Pitts has a wingspan of 68 inches and weighs in at a tad over 17 pounds. Powered by an AXI Outrunner and 5000 Mah 12S Lipo.
SKS Video's liked it enough to video the flight and interview Paul.

Congratulations Paul and awesome flying.
Welcome to the 'Neat Pilot' Family.
Well Paul Thank you for the photos and the sentiment it was just a blast to be there with all of you and enjoy my hobby

Hi Paul,

It was nice to see you again at NEAT. The weather was great and I think we last saw each other at Walt's Hobbies in Syracuse last November. Thanks for the great photos of the Ultimate and Paul Weigand's 1937 Culver Dart. Both models will be featured in upcoming issues of AMP'D and Paul's Dart, now converted to electric power, will compete once again at Toledo in 2012...almost 30 years after placing second in the Toledo scale competition.

I attached a photo of Paul in Toledo for the competition back in 1985. Believe it or not, Paul is in the middle of the photo in the brown suit. It took him 3 years to build this plane after hand drawing the plans from the full-scale model in Buffalo and he won the Civilian Scale Award at NEAT 2011!

Best Regards,

Greg C.
