Thank-you for all the support, not only from the pilot that drove long distance, but for the locals. I'll try to get the video out by Sunday evening, bits and peices, can't promise. Still in shock....

I went to Sat. show and all I can say is WOW! My wife (who's sick and could not make it) asked me how the bottom of my neck could have gotten sunburnt. I told her because I couldn't take my eyes off the airshow! Great weather, great event, great fundraiser. It was nice to run into Rob and CB. Had not seen you guys in a while. Great lookin helis. If you haven't seen this show yet, hope you can make it Sunday. See you tommorrow!

WOW! What a show. I would like to take a moment to sincerely say 'Thank-You' for all the pilots that took a weekend away from home to fly for a very positive cause. Even the Air planes, turbines, and 3D giant scale planes were spectacular and we couldn't have done it without them too (Frank Knoll has magic thumbs).

Our local heli crew came out in full force and proved that Louisville has some very good talent, and even demonstrated some moves that I keep repeating in my head trying to thumb it out.

A special Thanks to Mark Fadley who put on a great show both on and off the flight line, a super nice guy and a lot of fun to hang out with. I'm sure he'll post some pictures for us, so stay tuned, you'll want to see them.

Jim Starks....I'm still not over his flight, just flippin amazing. Thanks for the help on my electric EVO EX, we still need to finish that conversation. Thanks for coming out!

Bill Pirschel made it over and just stunned the crowd with his Turbine Huey. Glad you could make it at the last moment. Lotta fun hanging out with you during the show, and I had a blast helping you with the Big Bird, but next time you sleep in the garage, you need to get that snoring problem fixed Kidding, thanks for putting on a great flight. You're more than welcome to come fly with us and you'll always have a place to stay. We need to talk about your event next, in Lexington, right?

Devan came over from West Virginia, we got him hooked with a room and it was worth every penny. What a great pilot that has progressed with confidence, thanks for driving over and throwing it all over the place.....awsome flying!

Chris, you know it's really hard trying to be an AirBoss and make everyone satisfied, but from the Heli side, you did great! We have nominated you as the next Helicopter funfly AirBoss. Glad you got Sunday off to fly. Thanks!

Also, I would like to say thanks to Doug Trent for all the help and support in making the event smooth and professional, and speaking of smooth....man can he fly! I need to finish that Blackshark FAI body and start flying with you more. Thanks Doug!

Tony Whitesides (New Age Heli's) once again brought himself, his energy, and his motivation and smacked it everywhere. His flying style just keeps getting better and better. Thanks Tony!

CB and the Cincinatti crew showed up and they kept coming and coming. Really great flying, we'd love to swing up for any events you guys have. Tell Ken thanks, I'm working on a shirt for him.

Please post anything I might have left out, and I will as well. Too much time in the sun, but the kids will benefit.

Devan, It's always the first weekend in June. Glad I got to see you again and boy have you stepped up your flying. You are getting right up there with Sky King and J-Rock.

I'm glad you had fun,

Thanks for the great time. It was a lot of fun. Thanks again to Rob for not making me sleep in my cargo trailer. The best was listening to Bill "Wore-out-pilot" on the megaphone while Jim Stark was flying. That's a perfect combination.

This year I bet was $10,000 raised w/ grand total over 11 yrs edging towards 90-100,000 donated to the children. Think of that! From just an RC club. Pretty amazing! Thats because of the hard work of many individuals. Each deserves thanks (but it would fill this page), so let me say only,"just come on out and join us"! There's so many good people in this sport. Thanks to all.

Hi Smoove, Check this shot out, that's where I was yesterday. Jeff and the wildman are not very smart jumping from a perfectly good airplane at 10,000 feet.

I'm currently working on getting the video's up from the show. Everything was shot in HD so it should be pretty good....if it will convert it to HD as shot, as I'm having an argument with the camcorder now.

Any word yet on final numbers? How much was raised? And Wore out pilot, he can't be very smart if you look at his geneology.
