Event is being held this year on October 21-23, 2011 at Seabee Park in Abilene, TX. This will be an AMA sanction event. We will have contests, food and fun. We are planning on having a Chili dinner on the 21st of October, so come early for the event and get a free Chili dinner. (Brad the chili is better than the beef stew.) There will be cash prizes as well as a raffle. We had great sponsors the last fun fly and are hoping for more great raffle donations.

Seabee Park is exit FM 600 off of I 20. They allow motorhomes and camping but there are no hook-ups. We do have electric at the field so you will be able to recharge. This is a family fun event, bring the whole family.

Please start a list and sign up.

More details to come.

Well the Ely Q is flybarless and running a Micro Beast X Ver 3.0 and I have to say it has never flown better. Now all I need is castle to send me my speed controller back for my 600E pro and I will be a happy man. I am looking forward to another great funfly in Abilene as I also look forward to all my flying friend from near and far to come and have a great time. 44 days and counting.

Here I come! Chopper Madness or bust!
Hey guys, my name's Ray. I just bought tickets to come down from Alaska. So excited for my first fun fly! I fly a TREX 500clone belt driven, I've never had any static issues because I live in a temperate rainforest! I use silicone spray on my belt and don't have a static wicking system, not sure how to build one & would rather not build one if I don't need it. Any advice on flying electric in the drier climate? We're staying at the Super 8, think it would be ok to ship my batteries to this hotel in advance since I can only take 2 Lipo's on the plane? Thanks for any advice, can't wait to come down and fly with everyone!

I feed men with fish, so my thumbs don't go hungry for flying.

Hi Ray,

Welcome to Abilene. I'm sure you will enjoy it.

As for flying in dryer climates, static can be an issue. I have my heli grounded with a wire from the tail case to boom, boom to motor mount, motor mount to negative wire on the ESC. I then check for continuity throughout the heli. Here's a link for a static kit:

yes it did. gimme some time to post.

after that i have to do the items below so won't be posting much else until this is done:

1. post dave's joe satriani vid with the killer caliber 90 e conversion fai machine (up in 5...)

2. raymonds vid.

3. robert ables "take the power back redux" (v1 is on my youtube channel and it is a must see!!!!!!!!!! below)

(raymond, you must watch that vid as a homework assignment and post back prior to release of your vid, lol, git'on it!)

4. src compilation and dvd preview vid.

5. src dvd.

this stuff takes a lot of time, effort, and exspense, so things will be slowing down a bit at tvp until i complete these items.

thanks for your understanding and patience.

raymond, you are next but you gotta do your homework and watch this:

hell yeah!!!!!!

Watch at YouTube
