Those Magnificent Men and their flying machines will be in St. Louis this year at the Spirit of St. Louis RC Flying Field on June 1st and 2nd
http://www.spiritsofstl.com

This event has taken place at many locations and this year we wanted to spread the love to St. Louis....easy to get to, right in the middle of the USA!

With all these Durafly Auto-Gs out there and the increase of sales for both Flying Balsa and Whirlybird Aviation we are hoping this to be the largest event ever for the autogyros!

So far the dealers that will be coming:
http://www.flyingbalsa.com
http://www.aerobalsa.com
http://www.whirlybirdaviation.com
And possibly more!

Flight demonstrations will take place June 1st from 11-12pm. Dealers will sell their items through out the weekend. This is a funfly, SO ALL ARE WELCOMED TO FLY AND JOIN US!


For more information email me:

I don't know what the rules are on the field with helicopters. I would think if everyone uses common courtesy, it shouldn't be a problem. I would visit the website for the field and ask the President Gary.

Hope to see you there!

Sounds good Baby UH1....we will see you there!!!

Getting all my stuff out of my attic and getting ready to buzz around the Spirit of St. Louis and show off our wears! I'm going to have a BIG sale there, so I hope to see a lot of faces (new and old)!

I talked to the president of the club and he's looking forward in having us. All four of the BIG clubs in St. Louis are invited to join us, so I hope we see some new autogyro pilots taking the air. I know I'll have my NIB durafly ready for someone to buy if they are interested!

FLYING BALSA will of course be there to see their top quality kits and Aerosmith from Chicago will be there!

Rumor has it SKYDANZ from California is making a HUGE road trip to fly with us so that will be awesome! He has a good load of autogyros and will be buying one of my Whoppers probably! I'll have two more available!

Any of you other guys out here coming out? I'll have to find out which hotels are closest for guys that will be traveling.

Can't wait folks!

Getting excited!

I fired up 3 of my Whoppers...all of them flying perfectly and ready to bring out!
PCA-2 is ready!
Profile Kellet is ready!
PT 1/2 A is ready
Scamp (rascal with autogyro conversion) is ready!
And my Twirl is dusty...but always ready!
Auto-G (still in box)..ready for someone to buy if they want a quick fix!

I'll grab a few plans and kits too. Remember, if you guys come out...I will sell the PCA-2 kits for $100.00 and I only have a few left.

Jim, Mark, John, Don (skydanz) are all ready and Gary Pyles in St. Louis is promoting away! We have from 11am - 1pm to put on a good show guys and then the rest is open flying (which really doesn't bother me too much). It's going to be a good time and hopefully a big crowd. I know a bunch of guys from Illinois are coming in and a few down south (other than Mark and John)!

I'm hoping to get there by Friday by 4pm to set up camp. I know guys want to check out the local hobbystores. The two I want to check out is Shaefers and Mark Twain Hobby (links below).

So plug this into your GPS:
73 Amrein Road, St. Charles, MO 63303 Lat. 38.702006, Long. -90.577898

And we will see you guys soon!

Autogyros- packed!
Transmitters - packed!
Blades - packed (thinking of you Rich)!
Kits, plans, goodies - packed!
Cameras - charging but will be packed!

Now, all we need is some good weather! I'm hoping if we get any bad weather, it will be like it is in Omaha....morning, it rains, afternoon is nice!

Poor Don (skydanz) has been hauling his camper across from CA and has run into bad weather, water hoses blowing, water pump breaking, and just bad luck! He's about a day behind on his travels, but he's should be back on track and coming in with me tomorrow. Which means, I'll wait for him to get to Omaha and we'll probably pull into St. Charles in the evening.

See you fellas there!
Joe
