And Jim Allen won. And he won with a perfect score, 40 points in 10 rounds. And he ran the contest at the same time as well . And if he ain't Super Man I don't know who is.

RB, yup that was a good time thats for sure! I thought my Vortex was a gonner when I ran thru Mike H. and was gonna be a part of that "trend" What was cool for me was watching Gale bring home another Kachina doll... last I heard he was still all grins from ear to ear [sm=shades_smile.gif]

see ya in Feb

Bob,

Orange wing tips, blue stip just inside the orange tip. Clear fuse with the big JR on the v-tail... Page 1 of the photos, bottom left two pics.

That's actually the "shorty" dad built. The stab is 2" closer to the wing. Didn't fly very well. No matter anyways, dad took it home, cut the stab out of it.. scrapped the fuse. He's going build my up a normal version.

RB
