Last Picture From Me


I found one last picture that I'd like to post.

I had heard from multiple sources that Michael Connally was grumbling about not enjoying himself, and probably would not return to this event again in the future. That is very unfortunate, especially for me, because I absolutely LOVE to watch him fly.

Anyhow, I found this photo which confirms the fact that he is very unhappy. Just look at the frown on his face...

Dang Gary, you have all the fun, us working class just cant get with it, called in sick today, think I should go to the work shop and cut foam? My head is spinning now with all sorts of winged things.

Why did I ever leave this hobby? Oh well I must make amends.

Thanks for taking the time to share all these fine pictures with us.

Hard Hats On?


Here's Mike Feuilly (fwilly) retrieving his little bipe. Rob's Jar, and Michael Connally's (I think) Ultimate overhead. Mike's little bipe was awesome (as were a dozen others). He could perform rolling circles right in front of him, and every other trick in the book. Some day I'll be able to fly like that (in my dreams)!

Paul Willenborg's little Acrobipe powered by a GWS EDF DD motor and over propped with a 3x2 prop. He had been using the stock GWS DD motor but when that died Tom Blakeney gave him the EDF motor from a EDF-50 fan Tom was converting to CD. This combination made it one of the fastest planes in the arena. His lipolys paid the price having a temprature of 140 degrees measured after a hot flight. It carries two etec 250's and three servos.

Mike Connally's Flitter-B. I bought it at a swap meet a couple of years ago and never got around to flying it. I sold it to Mike on Saturday afternoon and he had it flying Sunday morning and was having way too much fun.

Nikon D100 with 24-120 zoom lens. Shutter priority mode, continuous autofocus, ISO set to 1250 to allow wider F stop. Most shots were edited to increase contrast and brightness and resized for posting to approximately 640x480 pixels from the original 3000x2000.
