NEAT 2013 What are you bringing to fly?


We had a thread like this last year, gives me an opportunity to organize my thoughts about what I'm bringing.

What are you bringing up to fly at NEAT this year?

Me:

Night Vapor (JCSF tent)
TechOne P-51
Stuntbipe
HBluO
PZ Wildcat
RACores spitfire and Yak55

Trying to not repeat previous events where I brought an absolute ton of planes and flew almost none of them. If I fly less than 75% of what I bring I messed up.

Still have 4 planes I bought at NEAT last year that haven't flown, hoping to get either the FMS P-47 or the Starmax P-51 flying before then, having parts issues.

Racing to get Nightflyers ready as well, my nightflyer roster is terrible.

Got a 6ft Telemaster rigged up with almost 300 LEDs......First big night flyer for me so I will be curious to know if it's too much or too little. Worse case I cut some wires or purchase more LEDs at a Vendor. Can't Wait!!!

Good thread

I always say that I'm going to bring less and fly more but rarely succeed. I think my goal for this year is to fly everything before the show starts then do a ton of flying at night

Here's the current list:
E-Flite P-47 (mass warbird vet)
MP Fun Cub
Mini Vapor (for the tent fly-in)
Carbon Cub (may try out the floats on the pond!)
Leadfeather's 3D Delta (night flyer)
New to-be-named twin night flyer (Saturday night contest plane)
Weekender twin (own design)
Balsa USA Citabria.

Some of you may recall the nasty crash I had with the Weekender last year. Well, she's all rebuilt and flying better than ever

Mambo 252 on floats
Miss Bikini kinda-sorta-old-timerish
Sassy (shoulder-winged sport plane)
Fairey Flycatcher (for Dawn Patrol -- may not bring, due to space)
Ember 2 and Night Vapour for indoors/night time

All are about 16-20 ounces, all are scratch-built. The Mambo and the Miss Bikini are the two ships we flew at Warwick; the Sassy is new.

Rob,
Is that the original P-47D? I still fly mine once in a while. Well over 300 flights on it.

Yep, that's it. One of the nicest flyers I've owned. Adam's 109 chewed her tail a bit last year but she still flies great. I should really pick up a spare airframe if I can find one.

UM Fokker Dr1 for Dawn Patrol
Great Planes Fokker DVII for the Dawn Patrol if it's windy

That should be more than enough.
