March 16, 2013 Club Fly


Once again, the weather gods treated the pious members of the local modeling club to very favorable conditions. The wind sock was hanging limp and short sleeves were seen.

We had a fantastic turnout today with 11 pilots and 1 guest. That means that 65% of the club members were at the field today. Can any other club in the country boast those kind of numbers?

I hope I got photos of any maiden flight today. But with so many pilots (and 12 batteries of my own to fly out), I may have missed a plane or two that was in the air. I apologize in advance if I missed your plane, but I'll get it next time!

Alfredo is back in the air


Alfredo is proof that flying is like riding a bike. After a winter hiatus, Alfredo took the sticks of New Year's Norma (the club's rusty thumb lubricant) and went through two battery packs like an ace.

Then Alfredo flew his highly modified Tower Hobbies Vista. This was a polyhedral winged glider that Alfredo motorized, removed all polyhedral, and added ailerons.

Pat's Overseas Bi-Plane


Pat had a maiden with his Asian built no-name bi-plane. It's a looker!

The club's test pilot Ross took the sticks to get everything trimmed out. And then Pat took over. The plane looks great in a the air and is a real speedster with the OS .46 pulling it along.

John at the sticks


John got in some quality stick time today. If you look real close, you'll see Ray's finger holding the trainer switch up. John's got full control.

The best of the rest


There was a lot of flying going on today. If you need to prove to your significant other that you were really at the field, here you go!
