I'll be there with whatever I have that is fast. It's October 20-21 and the weekend before the big race at Parker. The new "Parker Pitts" flew today and will get many more practice flights before then. When you guys come up, I will pull out the F1 and see if we can get 160 mph!

I recognize that dirt, SJ! You have already flown the Patriot XXXL at Rabbit! How'd she do?

The INS fall regatta is Oct 21 and that is where I will be headed.

Default RE: IS OCTOBERFEST STILL ON OR WHAT?

Yes, I did maiden my "Spidey Patriot"![sm=thumbup.gif]
Flew her about 5 times!
Seems kind'a large and draggy with the servos exposed and the like.[:'(]
I think some more pitch in the prop and alittle bit leaner runs will help out alot.
It "seemed" to be going about 130 mph. (As if I know. I have no equip.)
You got to remember we are at 3000' and I'm unfamiliar with the Jett.90![sm=spinnyeyes.gif]
The jett has a real reliable Idle![sm=thumbup.gif]
Once dialed in the Jett should pull her a lot better.
My mid range was fat and revved up kinda' slow but that is probably just me not knowing where the sweet spot is for the altitude.
I think my Javelin will the Supertiger .90 will probably take my Patriot with the Jett.90![X(]
The Javilin is light, thin and clean!
The Patriot is heavy, pudgy and draggy if compared.
Still fun either way![sm=tongue_smile.gif][sm=tongue_smile.gif][sm=tongue_smile.gif]
Beats bustin' big rocks into little one's![:'(]
Flyboy Dave I put the order in for the "Potato Salad"![sm=thumbup.gif]
Your good to go!
Vicman you "Plutonium Mechanic" you will be missed![:-]
K-mot just do what your message say's and "Ah... Screw it" and come to the "lake"[>:][>:][>:]

Could one of you gentlemen please give me directions to Rabbit Dry Lake from Victorville?...I live in Indio, and know my way to Victorville. Would be worth the trip to come up and watch you guys tear up the sky. Thanks

CrashPro: Center the dry lake on the google satellite photo. Then start zooming in. As you get closer to ground level you will start to notice the portion of a "square" in the dry lake bed. It goes from Hwy 18 toward the lake. That is where you access the lake from Hwy 18. You drive up along the fence until the fence turns left and you also turn left. You will also notice the outline of a full size runway. That is actually an active runway for private airplanes.

Keep zooming in closer and you will see some vehicles parked in what looks like the middle of the lake. That is where people park and set up to fly model airplanes.
