Well, maybe I'll have some time to get that old Superior flying right before next year. Badger, whereabouts in Missouri?

I would try to come Randall .. but you know my schedule now days ... but I sure would have more time to fly and talk that way ,, tring to watch /talk to the scale guys , ,plus do my Bergen duties/ fly and fly / watch oldies was really hard last yr .

I also love the idea of putting up our own tent at IRCHA !!!! I had a lot of guys ask where it was and if there was one !!!

IRCHA tent
That would be great, as the vintage side of the hobby really is
extremely important, and becoming more so. If you look at the
growth, and the recent vintage meet in germany, with Dieter Schluter
actually giving a lecture and bringing vintage components, etc.,
I for one will make my tent at the badgerfarm, and I hope some
stalwarts join us...No need to crash the flipfloppers.

I suspect there would be a very nice turnout, and we will start an
american tradition to parallel the one of the germans and norwegians.
I enjoy the fellowship of those suffering from this particular madness and as we know, the vintage fans are even more diehard than any
3Ders...

I cannot begin to tell you how hard it can be to acquire certain
oldies from overseas.

Badgerfarm just built a new field on his property!

I brought out 6 of my GMP helis to display. Unfortunately they stayed in the van all week except for the Legend. I did fly it on Thursday. To my surprise it got a lot of attention. Even though everyones into 3D, I think there is a lot of interest in the vintage. I think we need to let IRCHA and the AMA know we want a tent next year.

Springfield eh...?
Isn't that the home of the Simpsons; Homer, Bart and all?

I will mark on my calender whatever date is set but can make no promises. Would have to be sure my mom is properly attended to, would also need to have a 'bird-friendly' (parrot) place to camp and that is very critical. Would love to be there though.

So many heli's - too little time...

Well,

I got three (2.5 really) hovers on the machine and the main drive belt broke.. dang thing was 37 years old for petes sake.. you would think they would last for ever!..lol

Anyway the machine is fine and the new belt is just about on the way.

Kranger spent the rest of Friday at the ARCH booth.. Both Tom and is lovely bride are some of the best in the business........

It will be back next year..
