I hope to make it again this year. Can someone tell me what I need to get for setting up a raptor 50 for night flying. And also is there any of you that could maybe give a hand with the first night flight just in case, I live in Kewanee and I need some help with learning autos also. Maybe someone could post up when you guys usually go flying and I could come over for some help.
Thanks,
Boomer

night flying
no problem.
night blades, glow wire, glow sticks. i have some really good ones i will be bringing.
as for flying, i think it is better at night for the altitude of the heli, so i would get your stuff strap it on and go for it,i think you will be surpised how easy it is!!

Boomer,

We are at Scott County park most Saturdays & Sundays and would be happy to help.

We also have a Whirlybirds meeting there on the 20th, about 6 p.m.

PM me &/or Denion as the weekend gets closer.

I had my R50 all set to go for night flight at St. Louis last weekend. By evening I was sun-beat tired. Didn't look like anyone else was going to fly so I cancelled, too. I did want to show off my night tail blades, but it wasn't worth the three hour wait for darkness.

Hope we have more interest at our event.

Regards,
Tom

Jimm,

Talked to a lot of guys at Al's this weekend who indicated they are coming.

Think we'll need extra ice cream.
