THanks so much to ALL of you!

For me flying at Top Gun with you all more than a PRIVILEGE, it is an HONOR...I had a wonderful time sharing this passion. Even though I did not do such a great job flying my metal flying box (Zenith 801) , I had a blast.

It is always great to renew ties with friends and fellow modelers, appreciate their flying masterpiecesl, learn from you all! Scores???? well, That is the icing on the cake!

Hopefully next year I will come up with a much nicer airplane..

Again, Thanks so much to all af you!!


Carlos

What happened to the little Russian Biplane?
David Hayes at that thing at the Fly-4-Tots 2009 but it was still under construction. When he hits the retract switch, the entire lower wing and gear assembly lift upwards into the upper wing. The inboard portion of the lower wing folds 90 degrees into the fuse, while the out board wing tuck up inside the lower surface of the upper wing. Amazing piece of engineering.

Unfortunately, that amazing piece of engineering lasted about 15 seconds in the air before falling out of the sky []

I think Ken caught it on video

Fantastic model, I have never see or herd of it before, I thought the pilot just climbed to steep and stalled it. I hope he repairs it.

Thanks Minn and Ken. You guys do a great job and are an asset to this wonderful hobby. You're coverage of the events is motivating for me to want to build a plane and go to Top Gun. Maybe one day. Thanks again guys. Hey maybe one day you will be at my Warbird Event covering it.
