I live 15 minutes from Champaign. Finally, a fly-in with no hotel.

We'll be there! Fourth year in a row! We've only missed one, and I'm looking for redemption in combat this year. I won two years ago, and broke last year. Tons of fun, and nice people too! Looking forward to it!

I think I've watched that one. Win or lose, it's still a blast to fly in.

Alright, the scoop is Kyle Stacy, Nick Maxwell, Matt Botos, and James Haley.

Kyle won in 2010 and 2011. He is getting better each year. I would not be suprised if he pulls it off again this year. I like his flying style. Very unique.

I love watching Matt. I saw him in Evansville last year, and he is a great pilot. Kyle is my age, and he definitely has been getting better every year. Wonder how many are gonna end up in smaller pieces then they started....

Matt is a very humble guy. I wish Alan Szabo Jr. could make it to E-Fest, but he's usually busy somewhere else.

I have a friend who was unsponsored last year, and finally picked up a couple over the summer. Jordan Horwitz. He's really good.

I have been friends with Jordan before he went pro. He was also at smackdown last year.
