July 27, 2013 Club Fly-In


We were greeted with very light winds and pleasantly cool temperatures on this late July morning in the Espanola Valley. 8 members took advantage of the fine flying conditions including Pat, Tom, Art, Daren, Gary, Ross, Alfredo and Marc.

Special thanks to Ruben, who made a brief appearance and loaned his two buddy box radios and receiver to Daren for the upcoming Civil Air Patrol cadet R/C day.

A minor foot injury had me hobbling around today which is why many of the photos look like they were taken from my chair under the canopy.

Pat's Four-Star 120


Pat maidened his handsome Sig Four-Star 120 this morning. As our club's most prolific builder, Pat built this one from a box 'o wood. The plane is pulled around by a DLE 20 gasser and is an impressive sight in the air.

In the capable hands of Daren, the maiden flight was a success. Pat himself manned the sticks for the second flight.

Tom's Hobbistar 60


Tom brought out his Hobbistar 60 this morning but wasn't able to get in a maiden flight. Still, a fine looking plane. Stay tuned for in-flight photos. Until then here are a few ground shots.

Full Scale


There was some full scale traffic this morning. I was only able to get a tail number ID on the yellow "Cub-ish" plane (N143W) which is a Wag-Aero Sport Trainer. Daren identified the yellow-stripped-white high winger as a Citabria. The other two are unidentified.

Edit: Orval writes: The white C182 with horizontal blue stripe is N71074 (my previous Love).

2nd Edit: After a quick web search, I believe the red/white plane is a Piper Tri-Pacer 2901Z
