They came, they flew, they took our wood....

Scores are here

Thanks to the AZ and KS guys who made the effort to drive in for our inaugural F5J event,

It made for a great, very close event, we hope ya'll will be back in November!

We're very excited about F5J and motor assisted launch in general, we will see you on the Tour!

I took some pictures which I'll post later.

And of course Volo’s, several of them. And finally an Ultima 2 to include a pre-production V tail Ultima.

All but Dave’s converted Vixen were F5J ships.

We’ll have a “foamy class” at the TNT...see you there Bill

F5J USA Tour standings updated


The 2020 Tour standings have been updated with this contest and are available on the Pilots Standings page. Even though it was a compact pilots list (with lots of guys from AZ) it looks like a pretty good battle with the top 8 guys getting 90% or better. Dan Ahearn and the SLNT club did a great job with the first-ever F5J event in Texas. Nice going!!

Cheers,
Chris
