In total I am building 14 identical (except for color) Rebuttal 32's for the air racing. The plan is to use 12 of those during the race and to have two extras on stand-by in the event of an issue.

At this point there are plenty of aircraft still available to purchase after the race and remember that they come with the LiPo so you are totally BNF!

Here is the list of registered pilots that I have logged. The count is 19 pilots so only 5 spots remain!

Dan Reidy
Michael Muzzy
Stuart Katz
Pete Foss
Peter Cottrell
Adam Lilley
Mark Berardo
Dave Lockhart
Devin McGrath
Alan Reed
Dave Mauger
Chris Tall
Tony Silvestri
Rob Kallok
Gary Swist
Rich Roland
Ed Berchtold
Jason Cline

Wow - that's great! We're still over a month away and the contest is already almost full. I'm glad to see my guys are well represented for the event!

Hmmm... I see Dave and Devin are competing this year - will definitely make things interesting (not that pylon is necessarily their thing but they're just excellent pilots). That just mean the rest of us will have to bring our "A-Game" to the race!

Last year we saw some really good racing and some unexpected upsets so I'm excited to see what happens!

Remember, only two pilots per heat advance to the next round so it is possible for anyone to move on to (or miss out on) the "big dance"!

In a crowded heat ace pilots get tangled with other pilots all the time.

Joe, your registration was #21 so you are in!

Only three registration slots remain so now really is the time to send in your registration form and payment if you've been on the fence about participating!

Nice! That makes nine JCSF guys in the race. Did any of the Bergen guys sign up yet?

Just stopped by the "factory" and noted that the photos don't due the paint schemes justice, wait until you see these things out in the daylight. The pilots may need tinted goggles for this event!!!
