Dalton 2006. update
well guys, we are having a blast here at Dalton. it is sat night and i am now relaxing at the Sprayberry inn. today was filled with lots of flying action with several nice scale birds. my day this morning started out a bit sour as during preflight on my blackhawk i discovered a cable drive that was on its way to failure. i swear, i have had so much confidence in this system and usually speak highly of it but man lately it has been letting me down. anyway, with Darrell's shop fully stocked with parts and tools, it was replaced and ready to go and wait til you see the pics. the seaking made its fly-in debut and i fanally got some pics of it with the gear up, thanks to Greg Mcnair. he is great with the lense, just wait til you see all the pics he took. Joe howard brought his skycrane and it is just too pretty, also present was a beautiful bell 430, ec145, a fire fighting lafd huey with a working water drop doohickey on the bottom, and many more. several incompleted machines were present and flying as well which goes to show that your machine doesnt have to be finished to bring it. if it isnt flyable, i guarantee you will have a conversation started up about it and may even have some new ideas to go toward finishing it when you're done. I got a chance to fly Greg's blimp and its a blast. it isnt however, as easy as he makes it look.
we had a great turnout this year and for those who can make it next year, be sure to mark your calendars. i was lucky as i almost didnt make it this year and was glad i did. stay tuned for pics.

Thanks Emile, you're too kind. I posted 7 pages of photos in a gallery titled "Dalton 2006" in the scalerchelis.com photo gallery section. Here's a sampling. And the final photo is the man of the hour, Darrell Sprayberry, with his fantastic electric Cobra.

AWESOME! What mechanics and power plant will go into the BIG BK-117."How high do they go? Are those things hard too fly? How much do they cost?
