dr.E- Thanks for reminding me! We'll try to fit our 13.5" Newtonian reflector telescope in (it's the size of a water heater) You can see the rings of Saturn with this baby!

We were going to bring our 8" Dob, but decided to pack the little 4.5" Meade cat., instead, because of the space.

Did they ever retrieve the plane that got stuck in the trees Friday night ? Looked to be about 1/3 up the hillside.

It was ALL fun to watch. I thought this one was cool. I'm gonna try something like it for next year.

Ah, I was the one with the nutball next to you. Did you find that wire?

Thanks! You didn't seem to do too horribly with yours, either!

I had the 28 gauge, but I'd consider the 30. I normally take the two wires and spin them in a drill. Makes them super neat, and really strong.

Just letting you know now, I am stepping up my game next year. So enjoy the fruits now, muhahaha.

But seriously, even though I didn't win, that was one of the best contests so far. Nice work.

Hey, I was pretty happy with two pops and a touch. If I hadn't broken one of the blades on my folding prop (and had to run back to camp for repairs) I might have done better. However, there's always next year

What an awesome contest!

Hey, it all worked out. Wrecked my Dad's plane in the contest, and won a replacement. He said he likes the replacement a bit more, so that's a plus.

You top three guys were pretty nuts with the pops. If I missed the first opportunity, you guys went right behind me and popped. I had 7 touches and 2 pops and did not place. But the whole thing was just so much fun this year.

Yeah, luckily I grabbed a few props, and had Pat to help me out. I went though at least 6 props, it was insane.

I don't think I've had more fun with an R/C plane, though.
