Default 4th annual Speed Rally is ON!!!!

Sanction in, Radar secured, Lunch set, all we need is some hot stick pilots!

The 4th annual Carolina Speed Rally will be held on June 25th. Get those fast birds ready and come see how fast you really are. All types of models welcome except turbines due to a fabric runway. Proceeds will support the Hickory Air Museum.

Last year we hosted pilots from NY to FLA and saw speeds up to 211 mph. If you like fast planes and insane low passes this is the event you don't want to miss!

Visit www.caldwellaeromodelers.com post here or pm me for additional information.

It's been a great event in the past, come join us.

Less than a month away.
We have some new things happening this year. Hot food being one of them. Our new partners the Hickory Aviation Museum is going to let us use their full scale F-14 cockpit for the day so you can come see the real deal. I'm still working on some more pilot gifts from sponsors but they have always been nice in the past.
Hopefully we can get some more pilots and spectators this year and give out more of the 200mph stickers.

Hey Vic,
Another great event.
It gets better every year.
That 225MPH blast was awsome.

I'll upload the spreadsheet later today, it's on my laptop. I was too busy to take any pics but am sure there are some out there. When they come in I'll post them.

Grrrr. I spent a lot of time entering all that data as a nice table and it came up like that.[:'(]

RCU doesn't support a spread sheet. I'll have it up on the club website soon if you guys want to look at it there.

Thanks for posting all those results Vic..
That's pretty amazing to see a plane with a 4.75" prop do 225 mph...!
Anyone figure out what the tip speed of the prop blades is..?
It would be interesting to see what kind of nitro engine could turn that size prop that speed.

Awesome speeds, congratulations for creating the premier speed event in the USA Vic!

What I find very surprising, is a Corsair doing 120!

Vic,
I think you need to do your speed rally in Reno next year! I will even put you up when you are in town.

All joking aside, it sounds like you did a great job again, congrats!

With all respect
Scott

If you are serious I'll. Do it! This is the best day of the year for me surrounded by friends, happy people, and speed freaks is what it's all about! We really need a big sponsor to get behind this and it will be awesome
Dalton sportswear and planes trains and automobiles were our only sponsors this year. Jett didn't chip in this year. John Dalton threw it down for sure!

Vic,
Congratulations on another great event. 225 barrier busted!! I am so dissapointed that i couldn't make it but i have deadlines that i am still scrambling to meet. You are more than welcome for the goodies and it was my pleasure to provide them. While the future of Full Throttle Jets is unclear at this point, as long as we are in the sportswear business you can always count on a few goodies from Dalton Sportswear. Next year i intend to bring them myself! Good job with the sj50 Seth!!

Must have been about the same as when it made a 198 mph pass. Seriously, counting the wind speed on a downwind pass?
