If my 422 plane survives the learning curve I'll be racing both classes. I'm really looking forward to it!

I hope you guys don't mind if I come. Bill Johanson has talked me into coming. It's been so long since I raced that I will probably just get in the way. I will try not to be a problem for you fast guys.

A lot of dust had collected on the racer that I flew the last time I was there. I cleaned it off and put the servos back in it. Gave it a couple of flights. Flying the roller coaster course. I have a lot of practice to do. Now to come up with a decent engine.

At least I still have 3 weeks to back out.

All is well down here. I have two 424 planes that kinda fly and a couple of old beat up PRO 40's and I am really looking forward to coming to the Old Julian to race. I will be in town Thurs night so I can practice on Friday as the last three pole course I was on was Mulberry back in March.

OK everybody, it is getting close to go time here in NC!!!! Below is the list of pilots already registered. We need to get more pilots!!! If you know someone is coming and they have not pre-registered, post them here and have them go to the OJA website linked above and get it done.

With races being held at Bowie again, the mid Atlantic coast is getting better and better for pylon racing.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone!

Bob,
That looks great. That reminds me of my caller Speed Creep's nick name(Ole' Tuna Can).
Long and thin it just goes in short and thick, now there's a fuselage!

Well, I sent the laser cutting out for 3/16 sheet sides and got 3/8 instead!! Sanded it down a lot but she is still about 1/8 inch wider than spec!! Hard to bend 3/8 to that shapely curve!!!

Tuna Can???? Hmmm...Let me think now....! Add some balsa and a firewall of course peal the label off for drag purposes..... I can see it!!! Should I go V tail or "T" tail?????? [&:]
