I LOVE the rack! Mrs. Sawn Craft painted it for me today and it will look awesome out on the flightline all week!

We have 6 of the 15 planes spoken for so there are still a bunch to be had!

That's absolutely true. Just getting into the air smoothly made a huge difference last year. And those darn pylons had a habit of biting both novice and experienced racers alike.

Also I'm really happy this year that we'll be using spec racers - using different airframes last year had guys wondering which was the best. This levels the playing field in at least that regard.

As far as last years aircraft goes, we flew each of the different airframes extensively and felt there was no real difference in performance even with one being a twin.

I think we have agreed on a change in the how the race will start. This year each pilot will hand launch his own aircraft rather than a rolling take off. Jonathan will have to verify this before the start of the event..

Speaking of twins, did you ever release the Mosquito? Mine attracts attention whenever I fly it. Especially indoors.

The Mossie kit is just about finished! Unfortunately, other projects bumped this one down on the completion list, but it will be available this year!

A lot of the back-end tasks for the race are getting completed, but probably the most exciting one is finishing the awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place!

Take a look at the hardware that the winners will be taking home!

All of our 32" planes fly on a 3S 450mAh LiPo, the Rebuttal 32 included.
