I attended the Central PA fun fly this past weekend. A great view, a great time, from a lot of nice guys! The highlight was the how low can you go inverted into the weeds contest. Machines were dropping like flies.That event was accented by GMRO creating the Jack and the Beanstock event, an inverted attempt to cut down one tall, thick weed, one chop of the rotor at a time.Then it was time to purposely hit throttle hold while inverted and attempt to minimize as much damage as possible. Someone please put up some pics. Well worth the trip!! By the way, my heli is still glowing, not from the night fly, but maybe some reactor fallout? MMM...........

GREAT TIME!!!!
Hi Taurus,

Well the trip out to Central PA started out on the wrong foot, right GMRO, but man was the pay-off worth it on Saturday. I had a GREAT TIME!! There was some great flying with a super bunch of guys and yes even some heli hijinx.

Hey Taurus, on Sunday morning Jeff "Crazy SOB" Schwartz, flew below the "Edge of the Earth" out of sight for a few seconds, while the peanut gallery hummed the Airwolf theme. It was a lot of fun!! You gotta some to Lafayette this weekend!

Thanks again to everyone that attended the event. I will be posting pic's shortly and have a beautiful shot of a raptor being sucked in by the weeds.

I hope everyone is coming back next year. By the way, that is a coal burn and not a nuke, if you were concerned.

Trip.

ChopperMario,
Did you ever get that note from the front desk at the hotel to scan? You know the one... it was edited over and over and over waiting for you guys to show up??


TTrip06,
Man, I hope you got that on VIDEO. It seemed like it was hanging there forever before it got sucked in! Hope the farmer guy is OK! (We drove really slow on the way out as we passed him!)


Taurus,
The cool thing was it was the same machines droping over and over! Grand Master, I guess only slightly bent a feathering spindle, I bent one of those, twisted the heck out of my flybar, and broke 1 ball link. (Sacrificial wood blades were put on my machine before the chaos began so they didn't count ) Wouldn't want anyone to think we were totally nuts! Ken never "landed", he only got a small nick in his glass blades.

I guess there are some folks that are having problems with the videos on the photo forum, so I stuck up a few pics up that ChopperMario shot of the crazy stuff that was going on. Thanks for grabing my camera buddy! Enjoy!
