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?
Night Vapor (JCSF tent)
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.
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
Oh so many planes, not enough weekend…
E-flite Advanced 25e (windy weather)
ZippKits Sea Monkey (water events)
Flyzone ultra micro Nieuport (micro dawn patrol)
Parkzone P-51 (mass warbird launch)
Ember2 (indoor tent events)
Flat Foam F-22 Raptor (clearing of hostels)
Flat Foam F-111 Aardvark (electronic counter measures)
Flat Foam B-58 Hustler (nuclear bombing)
Flat foam Fun Bat (just for fun)
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.
Ok here we go!

It is a nice flying model.
