1/2A Non-Contest Control Line Gathering


On Nov 19, 2017, we will be celebrating 1/2A control line with a mass gathering at Apollo Field in Van Nuys, CA. Many of us started flying 1/2A control line when we were kids and now it's time to celebrate 1/2A. We're encouraging pilots to bring all of your 1/2A control line models flying or static for a large group photo. We will be flying all day and sharing our passion for 1/2A.

Bring'em if you got'em and please spread the word. Hope we see you there.

See flyer below.

Best,
Tony

Our large gathering of 1/2A Control Line aircraft is this coming Sunday. We hope to get at least 100 models gathered. I plan to bring at least 15, maybe more.

If you're in the area...bring'em, if you got'em and let's celebrating 1/2A!

Well guys...I'm proud to report that we had 127 1/2A Control Line models gathered during the event yesterday during the Valley Circle Burners 1/2A Non-Contest Gathering at Apollo XI Field in Van Nuys, CA.

Who said, "1/2A is dead?"
Not in Southern California!!

Here's a link to the photos:

Thanks for posting the videos. Pretty cool.
I have a 1/2A Stuka I need to finish, and 1/2A pathfinder and Magician kits headed my way.
I'll add those three to the Baby flight streak I have RTF.... That'll make a near handful of 1/2A cool planes to fly.

That looks like a blast! And it's great to see the small models showcased. Will this be an annual event?

Hey xplaneguy,

I am guessing you were a driving force for getting the event set up. It sure looked like y'all enjoyed yourselves!

Any chance you can point me to "Bill," the B-25 guy? I love that plane, and I want to know more about the build. I'd like to build one myself.

If you weren't involved, then I understand.

Thanks in advance!

Jim in MS
