I'm planning a trip to see a friend in Vegas on March 30, so I don't know if I can do two weekends in a row. It is possible though.

Do you guys know if any of the upcomming events have grass to crash land my jet on? Maybe some along side the runway would be nice.

Yeah yeah...

I'll trade you one for a girlfriend

I'll have the little Talon done soon, the little Sabre too and then something yet to be determined. You know how often I change my mind. I could start 10 more projects by the time those first two are done!

Steve,
The field is perfect. Lots of grass, paved pits and a 650 ft. freshly paved runway. Lots of run off, right Gregg. You won't put a scratch on it at this field.

I haven't decided yet. In addition to this meet, Best in the West in April, I'm also planning to attend the Western Regional Scalemasters qualifier near the end of April. This doesn't even count the various Grumman-Gang fly-ins I'll be attending during this time or time spent trying to finish my PPL training.

I'll know more as the event gets closer.

Count me in with the Albatros and maybe the YF-23. The X-32 is dead and buried for now, RIP.

All right boys, lets keep em coming. I was there all alone last year except for Gregg. With all those turbines
scarring the hell out of me it was kinda lonely. Herb?

The San Diego guys


Ok, Ok, the San Diego guys (A.K.A. the Doctors - Good and Evil) are considering it. Currently airworthy are the F9F-8T, Jepe F-16 and Aussie A-4 (at least one and maybe two), plus some micro jets (maybe). E-mail me with directions and details.

Dan,

WAY WAY back in the good old days I used to watch Col. Thacker fly at Mile Square Park... it was fun to just watch him masterfully drive DF models around the sky.

Back then if you built a DF model it was an unwritten law that you let him test fly it and trim out before trying it yourself ... that guy can fly anything and has the test flight experiece to deal with whatever happens.

It's great to hear that the old guy is still kicking and active in R/C. I look forward to seeing him (and all of you) at the meets.

Looks like there's a chance I could make it one day. I'm taking some motorcycles to Buttonwillow for the weekend, but since Saturday is just practice and I wont be riding this time anyway, I think I'll shoot over for jets.

Thanks for the grass report Steve. Sounds good to me!
