absolutely. Last year was my first and I'm already tempted to start packing for this year's edition. :-)

You'll see stuff there you don't see much of anywhere else and, of course, the people are great.

Hey Mongo, It was sold by Nitroplanes, 10 years ago. Last Summer, I was grabbing old kits out of the garage and converting them to glow power.

Thanks Rodger!
It sure was a fun 1/2A glow conversion project, and happy with how it flies.
Hope all is well with you and yours!
