April 28, 2013 Club Fly-In


Pat has an uncanny ability to pick the good weekend flying day. And he did it again this weekend. Temperatures in the mid 70 and clear skies. Winds were fairly light but variable. A fine day to fly a model airplane.

The 10 pilots flying today were Ruben, Ray, John, Art, Jack, Ross, Marc, Jerry, Tom and Russ. We also had two young ladies as guests who came to watch the action.

Art's 55cc Sukhoi


Art maidened his 55cc powered Sukhoi today. It's a fine looking plane and is a locked in flier. Art also handed over the sticks to Ross to wring it out a bit. The engine ran good and the plane exhibited plenty of power. There was some undercarriage damage on what otherwise appeared to be an uneventful landing. But it'll be an easy repair.

Jack's Aeromaster


This isn't technically a maiden since the plane is decades old. But Jack hasn't had it out in a long time so it gets its own post! A very nice classic looking bi-plane. Jack reports it was once white, but time has given it a yellow patina. Appropriate I think. It's a very aerobatic flier.

Full Scale


This guy was doing touch-n-gos. Maybe a kit plane? It didn't get close enough for me to get a decent shot.
