It is always a challenge to decide which airplanes to bring to a big event like this. I always regret not bringing something,like last year I left my old vintage Playboy home and the early mornings are perfect for that airplane.

Definately have to bring my Foaminator for combat. And my little Norman with L.E.D lights for night fly'n. Also have lights on my 20 inch Nutball so probably should take that one.

The current favorite and most flown airplane in my fleet is my new Rebel Z from Light R/C.
Gotta take that one, and of course my Twisted Hobbies Crack Beaver and Crack Pitts biplane.

Have a few planes for sale and will see if I have room for them in our little RoadTrek van.
Those include a new 3D Venus with motor/ESC/servos, and a seriously overpowered Foaminator with motor/ESC and servos. There is a very pretty little Cub with transparent red covering,complete with motor/ESC and servos. Perfect for indoor or light wind outdoor. Also have a good HiTec transmitter on 2.4 for sale.......great prices on everything.

See-ya-at-da-field...

Hopefully I take the time to do some flying this year. I have a few recent review projects I'll bring like the Flightwork P-38 as well as the UMX PT-17 but I'm really excited that my winter build project went well and I'll have my Park Scale Models 1/6th scale Howard DGA-3 Pete at WATTS and flying!

X650? is that a large quad? Cool, ive never actually seen a quad big enough to carry a gimbal before.

Yes, it's big. I believe the actual measurement is about 600mm from motor to motor but Hobbyking calls it the X650 frame. I run 3s 5000mah Lipos on it

I haven't done much work with the GPS and I need to modify the gimbal to fit my Xiaomi Yi cam.

So I may be flying the mini quads more often

OK lets see how much of this will fit in car... But this is the plan...

PA Addiction (might even have Addiction X by then)
PZ Sport Cub S2
Dynam T-28
World Models Ultimate Bipe
GWS PT-17
WMPF Highlander
BluFO
Bipie (at least one if not more)
Puddle Star

And anything else that will fit after that point...

Edit: Forgot one and figured I'd put pics up also...

And I thought I was behind on getting stuff ready for WATTS

If you have plans or templates for the SE5a I sure wouldn't mind getting a copy...

(Like I don't already have a build back log )
