Here are nine old local news clips 9 minutes and 44 seconds you might get a kick out of
Some of these go back 13 years.Note every ship has something called a flybar??

Watch at YouTube

Here are some old local news paper clippings.For some reason in 2012 they put me on the front page of the tri city herald. One of my buddies said you know the paper's getting pretty hard up to put Bill Pierce's ugly mug on the front page

Another said that's a cool shot of that heli but who is that "old man" in the background??

Those are some great clips, I had no idea even what the sport looked like back 13 years ago. Just getting into my 4th year. Can't wait for Othello the season opener, looking forward to a great summer.

Yea things were a whole lot different back then. My first heli was a raptor 30 with a Futaba gy240 gyro back in 2000.They had just hit the market.It was going to be a Kyosho or a Raptor and Ron Lund from at the time was Ricks RC talked me into the raptor

Looking forward to seeing you

Have fun, all. I wish I could hang out, but my Calculus class is going to need the time instead. I haven't flown since last September with non-stop college. I'll come back about 2018 when I graduate.

I got a call from Ken at Lower Heli today.

He said he won't be able to make it to Othello this year due to the death of his mother in law

So make sure you bring parts
