Just returned from Stony. Eric and I thought we would try some night LED flying. On arrival we met Chris and Steve who were flying at the time. They are relatively new at RC but were way ahead of the flying curve and theyhave already started a 5 man flying club. They were very interested in our foamies and would like to get into combat. Eric and I had a couple of night flights that they really enjoyed. I told them as much I could about our group and the foamies we fly. Maybe we could get more seroius about combat this fall with some new eager participants.

If its just me, maybe I will go over to Stony at 5pm instead. I could give the fellows more info on our planes , builds and equipment...etc.

If the weather holds and afternoon/evening is relatively calm why not have our session at Stony and actually try some Combat? What think the rest of you?

Not saying we can't do both am and pm, of course! Got all afternoon to recharge

I am loaded up with all of my foamies including my combat sting ray. The two fellows I talked with have more questions than I can answer so I need a vintage, not necessairly old, SEMFF member to help . I am planning for 5PM.

My combat plane is standing by in it's scramble hanger with full armament, just did not have a combat pilot ready (that's another way of saying I was golfing). Otherwise I would have been there. Now for some questions:

I'm still trying to decipher SWMBO?

Is there a report of the Stoney outing tonight?

Is any body thinking breakfast in the morning?

1. She Who Must Be Obeyed
2. No combat, but got to meet Steve and Chris, two guys who Larr ymet yesterday. We spent some time trying to get Steve's Carbon Cub s+ to work correctly, but it was successfully thwarting us at every turn. Otherwise weather was nice, runway too tall, and trees available to land in (though none of us did that)
3. Breakfast, hmmm, an interesting thought.....i could be talked into that.

SWMBO, I've got one of those too... and expressing an interest in breakfast. Let's see if 8:00 will attract some more comers.

Are Steve and Chris familiar with RCGroups? They may be able to glean the ability to stay out of those trees...
