Luis, James, Robert and all the Abilene Crew put on a great event as usual. Some notable pilots put on a great show and the weather was outstanding with only some rain overnight.

Thanks to all the pilots for showing up and doing some outstanding flying!

Just wanted to say a big thank-you to the Abilene R/C Society for hosting another successful event!!! Really enjoyed it!

We'll be back next year for sure!

Once again the Abilene crew put together an outstanding show. The weather was beautiful and the hospitality was unmatched! The Sponsored pilots really showed us some insane flights! Kyle Dahl, Jason Bell, Tim "Nitro Rules" Jones, and Ben Storik all shook the sky and made the event a real show. Big thanks to Luis and Ida Malave, Denzel "Earth Shaking Blade Scrape" Young, Robert, James, and the rest of the Abilene Chopper Society for hosting my favorite event of the year. I can't wait till next year!!!

Abilene Chopper Madness in the News

Abilene Chopper Madness made it on the local nightly news for the three days we were flying.

They aired Anson's Sunday morning flying as well as Friday and Saturday. You rock Anson! 1st place Autorotation winner 2nd year in a row.

They also aired a segment called "Know your Neighbor" where they interviewed me at the field:

Great pictures, thanks for sharing George.

Been trying to get to Abilene Chopper Madness for the past couple of years but something has always come up. Sure hope next year is different, looks like a great time.

Why is it someone so bad at being in charge......... wants to be in charge so bad?

Hi Ron,

You are in luck, I happened to see Kyle flying the quad on center stage and started recording. I wasn't up front with you guys but close enough. It was an amazing flight.

I'm uploading the video to YouTube now and will share it here when done.

Huge thanks to Kyle Dahl, Ben Storick, Tim Jones, Jason Bell and our own Dominic Grasso for taking the time to travel all the way to Abilene Texas and putting one heck of a performance!!!
