E-week coming up


Well, don't know about you guys but I'm planning on at least heading to e-week for Th-Sat. I've been getting basically no flying in this summer but plan to have at least the following flying to take to e-week:

1) Radian of course
2) One of my balsa 3d planes repaired or built new by then
3) Funcub complete with floats and tow hook (tow glider is already built and ready)
4) Maybe possibly a DLG but probably not
5) Not sure what else I'll take along. Possibly a faster flyer of some sort. If not that then one of my warbirds.

Anyone else made plans to go yet? I'll for sure be looking for flying partners to play with the towing and gliding on the funcub.

Definitely, unless work interferes like it did with Nall and SEFF.
Probably just do Fri/Sat like last year.

electrich, planning on going to this? I'm taking my Funcub with tow hook and a foamy glider I picked up from Atlanta Hobby. Plan to do some towing and need someone to fly the funcub or towplane.

Is that a sweet airplane or what!
If mine haven't died violent deaths by then, I'll be bringing one as well.
...along with the big electric Yak if it doesn't get sold or traded by then, and probably my Laser.

If you're buying after E-Week you can certainly get a pull on mine at E-week.
Just noticed you're in Acworth. If the weather is good we might could arrange something if you want to drive down one day.
I'm stuck at home tomorrow, but if we get a good day next week after work maybe.

Edited afterthought: Actually, I may catch a break later tomorrow afternoon. I could txt you if so, if you felt like riding down.

Great fun. Yeah, we can go back and forth between our two cubs. Mine will be set up for tow also but can't say how good the glider will really be. It's a 4-channel foamy Cliff was selling for like $10 that ended up being fairly heavy with 4 servos. I imagine it will mainly be a tow up, glide down in a minute or two, tow back up affair but still fun. I plan on going up on Thursday morning as long as the weather looks good.
