Default Petite-Pink-Pusher-Power!

Made the drive up to El Mirage to fly with the LEGENDS known as Flyboydave and Airgar- Well worth the drive I must say---


Gary put the first flight(s) on his VERY pink Balsa USA, Force-One (Stealing his thunder I know[X(]) and it was impressive with the GMS-47... Another nice gent there (Another James whos 4 yr old son Trevor was flying a trainer [X(]) had the Sonic-500 w/ the GMS-47 also--- great running engines (9x8 apc?)!

Flyboy Dave had his DC F-20/Rossi-45 piped combo runnin' well at about 17K static with one of those little MA 9x8's

And I was fortunate to put about 4 flights on my brand new Whip, just an OS-46FX/Tower muffler and 10x7- 9.5x8 assorted props---What a blast it was, good weather and even better folks!

Once a month I wanna drive up and bug those guys--

Yup, the "Panty Bandit" flew! The tank set up is still giving me some problems, so I do need to work on that, however, it only needed a few clicks of elevator trim, and a couple on the ailerons. Not bad at all, and I must say.....the "PINK" is very easy to see!

I was also impressed with the way the Razor's "Whip" flew. I now know why these are so popular.

Hopefully, next time he comes up, I'll have my "Rifle" ready.

Good company, good flying weather, and no mishaps make for a great day!

Gary

Thanks again for the great deal on the Patriot, and for the awesome hospitality from you, Dave, and James--- Once a month at El Mirage is my plan- Oh, I took that short-cut WAY better than Adelanto- comes out on the road to MT High resort...

Take care and I hope to be up again soon if you'll have me-

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/Let_...1882447/tm.htm

Plenty of RCU'ers saw it, and I got ragged pretty good. What, you wanna see more of dat?

All in good fun! I knew I was catch crap, but I wasn't expecting it with both barrels!

I hope you weren't offended by our comments. Although Art's string comment was close to borderline

We only make fun of our good friends.

Great looking plane, only green could make it look better.

o-

I can say though that it flies very well! And that it takes a big man to pull a pink stunt like that! Especially when you fly with a bunch of desert rats like FBD

Motorhome full of airplanes??

Sorry Dave....(somebody hold this barf bag [X(] )....

....after 20 years in the military, the only thing green I like is money and Martians.
And I haven't seen either for a long time....I'll go with the pink....

I only spent 4 years in the military, and I still like Green

Plus, its one of the least used colors in racing, and I like to stand out!

Absolutely NOT! It would take a helluva lot more than a few smart alek remarks seen on my monitor to offend me. It was all in good fun and I had quite a few laughs, and I wouldn't of posted "Let the Teasing begin" if I felt otherwise.

You can call me anything, but late for dinner.

Hey Dave, are you tellin' us they use "Pink" in racing? [X(]

And yes, the Pink does stand out when flying in the brown CA desert. I just don't fly it very long, simply because the matching pink high heels I wear are murder on the calfs.

I thought you did not fly very long because that little gravity fed fuel tank problem...

Yes there are a few pink racers out there. Like you found out, pretty easy to see in the sky.

Yep, at the time of the picture, the pink one was winning. However, I believe I won the race.

Thats Roy A. out of Canada, he's been racing pink planes for a while. A heck of a nice guy.

....so the conclusion would be: "Nice guys fly Pink". Thanks Dave, I needed that confirmation. LOL
