Great Article
I met Peter for the first time in 2007 where he was running the AMA scale NATS.. Totally new to scale and the competition, I jumped in with both feet.. Nervous and new.. Great combination
Peter took the time to let me know what I needed to do and, in his own way, tried to calm me down..There I was, flying "against" the best of the best in scale helis..(or at least trying!!)
When I finally got my Jet Ranger in the air, and completed my flight...they all gave a sigh of relief, and I am pretty sure it was Peter the mentioned they thought I was going to loop the dam thing since I was flying so fast, just to get that first flight over with!!!!
While there I also met Darrell Sprayberry and he told me about his event in Dalton and said that if I came once, I would never want to not come back...he was correct??
I still build and fly scale helis and have no intention of quitting, but I am also having to go back to the "smaller" 800 size helis due to health issues too..
Peter has been an outstanding mentor and all I can say is THANK YOU for all of the help, coaching, and friendship all these years..

UIH,

Great article.

Don't feel bad Stan, I recall Peter saying in a video at the 10 Nats that my "fly by" with my 76 was "super sonic".

I will have to look for that video.

Peter, Mayo on the baked potato, Brilliant. Still do that today.
