We're here everyone!
About 20 pilots so far signed up. Some sudden downpours this morning but its cleared now and winds 20 to 40mph. Seperates the men from the boys :)

Comon down and join us, waiting for you!

Oh, and if anyone has black and white monokote trim sheets please bring them down with you. Rick carved the soil with his electric heli and lost a blade tip - he's got another orphan and if I can get some monokote tape I can balance an orphan for him along with the remaining good blade.

See you guys here, and bring down the orphan Radix 710 for me too! :cool:

We were flying under the spot light tonight. Flew the 500 under the lights for the first time, FUN! Jared flew the 250 in 30mph wind. That was hilarious. Only Jared could pull that off. And AJ put the Rave through it's paces in the wind too. That Machine has crazy fast cyclics. Bill flew the 600N also.
Tomorrow night is going to be a blast! Everyone needs to get here!

I know the gang does not like this, but thanks for not making me feel alone.
I too will not miss the next one, rain and wind does not stop us, but the below 40°F is just too much to ride through... at least for Jeri... I have heated clothing for me .
And when I ask for pictures of the event, tell Ray to hold off on the pics of James' women

if you see the pilot running....try to keep up!

I would have to say that today was amazing. If you didn't know how to fly in 30 mph winds gusting to 50 then you learned quickly.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow. See you in the AM.

PS. I think everyone that flew should get a patch or certificate for passing the 30MPH+ coarse.

IT's what I do.

No siht huh?
I had to put one foot forward several times to prevent myself from getting pushed over from the wind! Sometimes I was more worried that I was going to fall down and crash from falling rather than crash from the wind.

Man that was windy, but alot of us flew through it chugging into the wind and then rocketing back downwind

Well hopefully tomorrow will bring some nicer conditions

I was trying to be the wind block for Justin. But I had to keep some distance so I didn't bump into him.

I ended up kneeling to better support myself and get closer to Justin to block the wind better.

Jared held the line without drifting. For the rest, it was maneuver and then into nose-in/tail-in drag it back to center and repeat.

That basically separated the pros from amateurs. We were all MAN though.

Just wanted to say thanks to Eric and Bill and all the other folks that put this together. It felt like a fun fly at an intimate setting. Lots of familiar faces, some names I end up forgetting, same smiles.

Thanks for having us at your home.

I remembered to ask for Jenn's cake pan back so the boss here is happy with me!

I don't think I have flown in wind that high before, but I'll be damned if I didn't come away from the flight line with the usual goofy grin.

The really skilled pilots, really showed their skill yesterday. I swam my heli upstream to get a move in, instead.

Doesn't look like I can make it down today, but if there is a next year, I'm coming for more pork!

See you all at HeliFun

That's it from here, I will be forwarding all of the many pictures we took on both Saturday and Sunday to Mr. Jackson.

On behalf of Sharon and myself, let me thank those who set this all up. This was our first FunFly and we were not disappointed.

Kudo's to all the pilots that braved 30-50 mph winds on Saturday.

I had this crazy dream..

I was at this guys house with an amazing back yard and a huge number of pilots flying. It's been a long time since I've had such a good dream. Even the scary parts didn't seem so scary like the F1 tornado that hit while we were flying on Saturday or trying to glue my governor magnets back together during the raffle. ( I still think I won more ) lol

Thank you to the hosts!!! Great work I will be back next year.

IT's what I do.

That was a cool funfly!!

It was so great to see everyone again... and to meet some new pilots!

All you guys are getting better and better... and it was really neat to see it!! Very Cool

Since I am not a strong flyer... I was just thinking of sitting out the wind... but Raja kept on me to just get out there and fly the 600. Finally did... Man am I glad I did! (thanks Raja)

These things really can take the wind... it wasn't so bad. It was coming from our backs... and that was helping (although those gusts just keep popping up to add a new twist to it.. even to just standing up). There was some impressive flying, some OK flying, and some not so pretty flying (me)... but we did it and not many casuality helis through it all.

Today was pretty much picture perfect! Justin decided to hang with me for awhile this afternoon... he is growing up so fast. He wanted to help me get my helis ready for flights (batts, fueling, getting to the flight line, etc.)... and then he decided he wanted to fly them It was neat to hear him carefully checking them out and analyzing the way they were flying... good stuff.

Most of all there was allot of smiles, setup help, good food, laughing, and hanging out by all - great time!!

THANK YOU to everyone who worked so hard to pull this together... Great Job!!! THANKS to all of you guys for helping me with setup, rebuilding, laughing and smiling!

Can't wait to do it again!!

Finally home
Last one home too I'd bet. Man what a trip...the damn exhaust decided to break at the header shortly after I got on route 1 and the whole undercarriage of pipes dropped to the ground. Scraping metal, had to pull over and think about how to improvise. I looked around the side of the road for rope but no such luck. Then it came to me, I used the strap of the duffle bag - one end hooked into a loophole on the transmission, one wrap around the exhaust pipes and the other end into the car and shut the passenger door over it to hold it in there and carry the pipes off the road.

It was the loudest 399 mile trip home, man that sucked but I needed to get home where I can fix it without being stranded somewhere waiting for parts - I'm sure they don't stock parts for such an old car.

I had an awesome time at the event! Thanks Eric for hosting the event for us I enjoyed the open flying space, helping guys with their helis, one good save, and I got my turbine waiver - woo hoo!
