Those Magnificent Men and their flying machines will be in St. Louis this year at the Spirit of St. Louis RC Flying Field on June 1st and 2nd
http://www.spiritsofstl.com

This event has taken place at many locations and this year we wanted to spread the love to St. Louis....easy to get to, right in the middle of the USA!

With all these Durafly Auto-Gs out there and the increase of sales for both Flying Balsa and Whirlybird Aviation we are hoping this to be the largest event ever for the autogyros!

So far the dealers that will be coming:
http://www.flyingbalsa.com
http://www.aerobalsa.com
http://www.whirlybirdaviation.com
And possibly more!

Flight demonstrations will take place June 1st from 11-12pm. Dealers will sell their items through out the weekend. This is a funfly, SO ALL ARE WELCOMED TO FLY AND JOIN US!

PUT IT ON YOUR CALENDER AND COME OUT!

Gentleman...get ready to start your engines.

Getting all my stuff out of my attic and getting ready to buzz around the Spirit of St. Louis and show off our wears! I'm going to have a BIG sale there, so I hope to see a lot of faces (new and old)!

I talked to the president of the club and he's looking forward in having us. All four of the BIG clubs in St. Louis are invited to join us, so I hope we see some new autogyro pilots taking the air. I know I'll have my NIB durafly ready for someone to buy if they are interested!

FLYING BALSA will of course be there to see their top quality kits and Aerosmith from Chicago will be there!

Rumor has it SKYDANZ from California is making a HUGE road trip to fly with us so that will be awesome!

Any of you other guys out here coming out? I'll have to find out which hotels are closest for guys that will be traveling.

Can't wait folks!

I got a few emails today about where to stay and does the field have electricity. Here's my reply:
"The Spirits’ field is ~12 acres of fun surrounded by farm fields and blue skies. Our amenities include a 600’ asphalt runway, paved taxiways, a 24’ x 36’ pavilion with ceiling fans, run-up tables, picnic tables, helipad, electricity along the flight line, gravel parking lot and restroom. The grass is commercially mowed to a height suitable for most planes. From micro to GIANT scale; airplane, helicopter, control line or sailplane, electric, nitro or gas, Spirits of St. Louis R/C Flying Club, Inc. is the Best Flying Site in the area.

The Spirits flying field is located at 73 Amrein Road, St. Charles, MO 63303 Lat. 38.702006, Long. -90.577898

On hotels there is a lot in St. Peters and St. Charles...some are $55.00 a night and then they go up. Just do a search on that address and a bunch pop up. Red Roof Inn in St. Charles is the cheapest. Super 8 in St. Charles would be another good pick.....only 9 miles away."

Getting excited! See you guys there!

I have kicked the idea around several times.

I still fly them from time to time and are currently building a G3PO just for giggles.

Also, rumor has it that the full size autogyro guys found out about our event and are going to give us a "surprise" visit! That would be sooooooooooooo cool!

Just something to distract us.

When they are flying we have to sit it out and wait....

Getting excited!

I fired up 3 of my Whoppers...all of them flying perfectly and ready to bring out!
PCA-2 is ready!
Profile Kellet is ready!
PT 1/2 A is ready
Scamp (rascal with autogyro conversion) is ready!
And my Twirl is dusty...but always ready!
Auto-G (still in box)..ready for someone to buy if they want a quick fix!

I'll grab a few plans and kits too. Remember, if you guys come out...I will sell the PCA-2 kits for $100.00 and I only have a few left.

Jim, Mark, John, Don (skydanz) are all ready and Gary Pyles in St. Louis is promoting away! We have from 11am - 1pm to put on a good show guys and then the rest is open flying (which really doesn't bother me too much). It's going to be a good time and hopefully a big crowd. I know a bunch of guys from Illinois are coming in and a few down south (other than Mark and John)!

I'm hoping to get there by Friday by 4pm to set up camp. I know guys want to check out the local hobbystores. The two I want to check out is Shaefers and Mark Twain Hobby (links below).

So plug this into your GPS:
73 Amrein Road, St. Charles, MO 63303 Lat. 38.702006, Long. -90.577898

And we will see you guys soon!

That's awesome! Thanks for the plug!

I'm hoping to get a buddy box on one of my autogyros so guys can give it a go! They are tons of fun and very addicting. I think helicopter guys enjoy them most!

See you at the field!

One week to go!
Just ordered some plans....selling them for dirt cheap! Also the Scamp, Profile Kellet, Durafly Auto-G, PCA-2 kits, Whoppers.....all for sale! The PCA-2 kits are normally $160.00 and I'm selling them at the funfly for $100.00....4 left and when they are gone they are gone! Not making anymore after this week. After this event, Whirlybird Aviation is closing their doors so we will not be selling anymore kits or plans after July 31st.

So come on out guys! Low winds (under 15 mph....perfect), so I'll have my buddy box all hooked up. Bring out a plane, show me you know how to use your left stick and you can fly my autogyros!

See you June 1st (I'll be their this Friday...so come out early if you want)!

Hi Jodini, nice collection of autogyros!

I still have my night Twirl. Someday I'll give the AutoG the same treatment. I wish this event were closer so I could go.
