making headway.. looks like Mark Allen (HRC37) has a good handle on the event and is amped up to give this a go.

Lets not disappoint him!

I will be heading out Friday July 28 (pull over puke, pull over puke) and should be to the site that day... Yea.. I love driving!

If the weather is good we head to the "Scale Mound" for some practice flights on sat.

Pilots meeting

Hey boys and girls,
Food will be provided at the pilots meeting Sunday at 6pm at the flying site. Just bring your own drinks and chairs. Entertainment will be provided by Grim....oh wait...I hear he can't sing nor dance...so scratch the entertainment. Hope to see everyone there and everybody have a safe trip! Mark

Steve,

the contest machine is next. you know twice now I have lost my contest machine two weeks before the contest.. one to a dumb thumb and one to a dumb setup..

Both my fault.. needless to say we are going to "limit" our time with the contest machine BUT.. will fly it hard as much as I dare.

COME ON WEATHER..

COME ON OTHERS..

LETS FLY the AMA NATS...

Not Competitive????

Guess we will have to see about that!!!!

Get thiose practice flights in as much as you can..

I understand about flying your contest bird, but that is the one the "fine tuning" is needed most on... even identical machines have a different "feel", but you already knew that...

Hope to see a lot of pilots there in about 3 weeks!!!

WE WILL SEE YOU THERE!.. jedi hand wave..

I took a few practice videos but don't have time to post them. Our club has a scale airplane event this weekend and then its off to the nats the weekend after.

I am not happy with the way the EC is flying and trying to get that figured out..

I think I need to turn off heading hold in the head stab as the bird does not groove...

Either way.. we WILL MAKE IT!

Turn out!

Not to put the pressure on anybody but if we don't get at least 12 or more per class, then I'll feel like a failure and won't be able to live with myself....at least until Wednesday morning.....lol

Remember....Pilots meeting at 6:00pm Sunday evening at the flying site. Any questions or issues send me a PM.

I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone and hope everybody has a safe trip.

Scale CD,

Mark

TICK TOCK!

well gang.. just about ready to head out.. Friday morning and away we go..

This is the hardest part of the event for me.. That and the drive home. (I suffer rotten motion sickness sense I lost partial use of my left eye)anyway.. my issue.. if I seem kind of out of it on Saturday please take note. Its not my intent.

Regarding the posts.. weather they were good or bad.. I feel I have done my part to promote. I would like to see others jump in and do the same in the coming years.

The nats can quickly become the contest we "expect" it to be and you can all be a part of the movement.

Also.. thank you Mark for taking the lead on the CD position.

Thanks all and see ya at the flight line.

Grim

Hi:

Just doing some final sorting out for the trip. I may just leave the MH-6 at home as it is nowhere near ready but at least it has been up in the air this year. It's very fortunate that when the crew is on the benches, all aerobatics are forbidden as it loops with the best of the F3C helicopters, lol. See y'all there on Saturday.
