    RE: BUTTONWILLOW SPRING FLING

    David, I am planning on coming up Friday and was wondering if I would be allowed to land a full scale 172 at the field? It would be around 830 am so that would hopefully be before much of the flying starts.

    Can I land at the field with a full size? Again, this would be Friday morning.

    Thanks man - lemme know

    ***EDIT - I guess I should read the whole thread before I post***

    RE: BUTTONWILLOW SPRING FLING

    Will people be camping at the field?

    We will be staying in a hotel (me and the kids) but I was wondering if we can leave the planes at the field if people are camping out.

    Also, for those of you staying in hotels, where are you staying?

    See you Friday

    Jack, there will be several of us staying at the field in RV's, so, yes your stuff will be secure to leave out.

    The weather forecast this weekend is low to mid 70's sunny! What else could you ask for?!

    RE: BUTTONWILLOW SPRING FLING

    Good Afternoon Gentleman (Am I being too loose with that term?, jk),

    I am a newbie to Turbines but have been around the hobby since my first Tx was on "Red and White".

    I am looking forward to attending your event at Buttonwillow. My son and I are coming up from Orange County probably on Thursday, mid-day. I have not yet flown a turbine, (Well not a model, full scale turboprop experience). I've flown a lot of EDF's and ducted fans. I have put together a Boomerang Torus and a Skymaster F-18F and will hopefully have everything dialed before I come up.

    We've recently joined the JMRC Flyers at Camp Pendleton and unfortunately our weather has not cooperated with getting our birds airborne yet. Hopefully we will be able to get some great advice and help with successful maidens and signing off our Turbine Waivers. This looks like a really great event you are all planning! Can't wait to meet all of you!

    Happy Flying,

    Steve Kottman

    RE: BUTTONWILLOW SPRING FLING

    Great to welcome you Steve. There will be MORE than enough people there to tell you what to do Seriously there will be any number of us who will be glad to look over your airframes and point out any issues. There will also be a couple of Turbine CDs there if you are able to be signed off. Did anyone check your builds along the way? What radio do you use? Scotty

    RE: BUTTONWILLOW SPRING FLING

    Thanks Scotty!

    Neil Smiley from Gyro Hobbies built the Torus and has flown it 5 or so times. I bought it from him after I started on the F-18F. My feeling was that it would be a little less challenging than the F-18F as a 'First Turbine'.

    My radio setup is a Multiplex Royal Evo with an Extremelink (XPS) module in the transmitter. It's been a really good performer for me which I can't say the same for my 'other' radio. I have a trainer cord setup for it.

    I'm a longtime builder and spent a lot of time on the forums building the F-18F. I'm pretty happy with it but I'm not too proud to accept advice and criticism. I'm smart enough to know that the best time to check out a model is BEFORE a maiden rather than during it! It looks like this event will be perfect to help me 'get it right'!

    Thanks, Best to all,

    Steve

    Dantley, seems like Jeff will have everything ready by tomorrow night, make sure to bring your Evo 160, and I should be there noon or so on Thursday.
    Shaun, have you received your 170E?

    Look forward to this and see you all very soon,
