Another outstanding job Lewis along with all your crew. Everyone knows an event of this magnitude requires a lot of time, planning and help. My hats off to you all. This was my 4th year and each year I meet new people and make great friends. I'll continue coming as long as I can. And thanks to everyone that helped me during the week.

Hats off to Lewis for putting on such a fantastic event. It was my first time there. I had a great time flying my 1/4 scale Panther. I got 5 good flights on it Friday and Saturday. One was in the Saturday noon time show, and another I carried around RC Kens on board camera. (He is very trusting.) What a great location, and layout. I was very comfortable flying there for my first time. I hope I get a chance to come back to this event for the people, the food, and the flying……………. Ill post the video I took as soon as I get a chance.

Thanks,
Joe Felonk

Thanks to everyone for making jets over Kentucky a greatest event this year. Dave still cannot believe he won the raffle jet. Thanks to USA-RC JETS for sponsoring this plan.

Mike 2 of them where yellow F22s (one mine and one Hanks) and the other one was Barry flying the jet legend F22. The jetlegend F22 is still available but the yellows are gone for now but might return sometime in the future.
2 of them had the new kingtech 210s and mine had the kingtech 180 for power.

I never realized how big some of these jets are

My question was the noon show with the 3 F22 blew me away. As I have been looking for a new scale jet and I could not believe how fast these jets were. Anyone know whos kit they are?

I can only seem to find Yellow and CJM that make the f22 and they Re almost the exact same size

Anyone eles make these f22

Awesome job by everyone! had so much fun this year. Was my favorite year. The flightline crew did great!!

Funny how you can go to an event with half the pilots and the flight line is complete craziness and this flight line was ran perfect with no drama. Thanks MARVIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a total of 53 flights .

What a great event (again)! Lewis, this really was the smoothest run KJ yet! It was so relaxed and enjoyable! You really have it under control and make all your hard work look easy. We all know it isn't! Thank you so much for having such a grand event for us all to share and enjoy.
I got some good flying in on the Gulfstream and Viper. Ken even taped up the camera on the Gulf for some air shots! Can't wait to see them. Thanks to Barry and Dirk for all their help. The engines "sing" now!
I want to thank Dave & Shelly for never stopping! From registration to 50/50 tickets she was out hustl'ing all day long. Dave never stopped with the camera, and congrats on the kit win! Perfect timing!
Hats off to all the food preparers! Everything was "southern comfort" (yes, that too..) and great tasting!
Last, thanks to Rex, George and most of all Eric Clapp for helping get double the goal we set to hit for Marvin. Marvin my friend, it was such a pleasure to get that done for you. I can tell you, it brought at least 2 grown men to tears doing it. Your a great guy and did a fantastic job on the flight line. Having everyone standing in the entire place to applaud YOU shows the amount of love we all have for you. Can't wait to see you next year.
To all the friends old and new, it was great seeing you all. Hope to see some of you on the west coast at Best in the West!

Great event Lewis. Can't add much more to what has been said about the event, it was worth the 4000 K trip from Alberta met a lot of really nice and helpful people. Would sure like to comeback in 2015 but 40 hours of driving makes it a real stretch to do again. I envy the folks that live close to Kentucky.

Thank you Lewis, This was 4 years in a row for me and this was the Best ever!! Marvin did a unbelievable job with the flight line and was able to keep all his Face Book friends up to date on all the flight line action!!
This has to be the fast way to spend 8 days with some really great old and New friends.
Thank you and had a blast Billy D

Lets see,
8 days of flying, great weather (except for Monday and part of Tuesday), great friends, good flying, no problems to and from Pittsburgh and my planes came home in one piece
What else could one ask for! Thanks Lewis and everyone else that helped put the Event on.
See everyone again next year,
Ron
