This was one of the best fun flys that we have hosted yet. Thank you everyone for coming out. We had 75 registered pilots. Everyone got along well, had some great demo's, and a lot of great flying. I will try to post some pictures later. I would also love to see some video if anyone have some.

I would like to say thank you to all of the sponsers.

I picked my favorites and posted them in my gallery. If you have a lot more, you could probably use something like flickr.com and put a link to your gallery.

Thank you all for coming, we had a great event and it could not have happened without you. We got lucky with the weather, a little on the breezy side yesterday but much better than today. It drizzled all morning but that did not stop the handful of hard core heli guys who were still here this morning to fly while we were doing some cleaning.

Thanks again and see y'all soon.

I had a great time, and look forward to the next one. I'm sure the hobby shops will be very busy shipping heli parts to Texas tomorrow.

Thanks again to all the volunteers and everyone who worked to put this together! Great event and a great weekend one more time. We will definitely be back next year. Really cool to see how much the event has grown in popularity from the 1st year. The army tent was a great great addition to add additional pit area!

THX again.

Thank you guys for your kind words.

I forgot to thank Bob for cutting our phone line with the TV antenna of his camper when leaving yesterday morning! I thought the antenna was supposed to be folded...It was after it cut the wire...
Bob I hope there is not too much damage.

Many thanks for a great event!
From the the field, club volunteers, sponsors, and pilots could not have done a better job at holding the event. This will continue to be at the top of the list.

I would suggest that the pilot stations should maybe be an addition 50-100 ft further apart next year is all. This would help with the occasional drive by that I think we all experienced...

Thanks for a great weekend!

Curtis Y. posted on his daily blog that Anthony Jager had a spectacular crash.. Anybody get any video?
I did. I'll post the entire flight in a day or two after I've gotten it transcoded, as well as a few more.

I'll add my kudos to the ARCA folks for a great event. Unless something dire happens, I will be there next year.

Cant wait to see that vid, I saw the whole thing, incredible crash with minimal damage, Anthony is an amazing pilot. The ultimate carnage was the Synergy N9, never seen anything like it, I'm sure the pics and vids will surface soon.

Was that the boom strike or another crash I missed?

no the boom strike was the hirobo. the synergy was in the pits under the big tent.

How about Creighton Carr's ridiculous save after shredding the tail blades on his TR 600, then spanking the crap out of her during the noon demo squealing bearings (or whatever) and all. That machine had already made a deal with the devil, had to see it to believe it, awesome flight Creighton. Love too see some vids of that one.
