FL JETS who's going.
 
Just out of curiosity was trying to see who is getting ready to go to FL Jets.

Be there Tuesday with a trailer load of Scott's planes. May have to strap a couple of planes to the roof of the trailer. GEEZ, a 32 foot trailer and its still not enough. :-)
To answer your on who's getting ready, working on it. Worked on a new Shockwave the past couple of days. Fitted it with electric retracts and a electric gear door actuator, now that is really cool. Works awesome.

Hell yeah! I am getting into Miami the week before ( Pretty much straight from another event in Australia..... Do you think I am keen ? LOL ) The " Dream team" are all heading down to Mayhem park for a bit of " jets over the freeway" action. I hope to join them there.
Bob O.. Good work buddy. Tell Scott that one can be my Shockwave :D

Not going,

Florida is like the Mecca of rc and they can't even find a paved runway no thanks...

RE: FL JETS who's going.
 
That is wierd, same with Top Gun. There are paved runways at clubs all over Florida not sure what the issue is.

I thought about going but I have to drive 20+ hours only to probably break my gears out of my way overweight jet and pathetic flying skills.

I do hear it is a nice grass runway though and well kept.


Have fun I plan to get out East for one of these this year, maybe Kentucky.

yea small jets? or about a fiesta for people selling flexplates when you go through 3 pairs of them? Jets don't belong on grass.

This is my fleet of aircraft i will be bringing this year. I have never had any issues with the grass field any time i have been to this event.

This was not posted for the people to b!%ch and moan about there inabilities to fly off of a grass field.

I was just trying to see who is going.

PLEASE take your B#$CHING else where!!!!!!!!!!

Greg: You are damn right. I haven't been to Fla. Jets for quite some time, but
Frank makes it worthwhile.
Maybe next year will attend it. This is an event to enjoy and relax; if not look
for another hobby.

The grass is great and if you break your gear its because of your lack of flying skills not the runway. A few years ago yes you could blame the runway but not now. The grass is in perfect shape and it has been a warm winter down here so the grass should be even better.

Looking at Dustins site you can see some of the people making the trip.

RE: FL JETS who's going.
 
Sure I could buy that, my skills do need some work. I do have a 30 lbs 1/8th scale f-16. A heavy little beast. Landing perfectly on grass would probably still rip them out. Three are people from my area that go to Top Gun, is it the same runway? I hear it is very good.

Sorry didnt mean to sound like I was moaning. I guess I am just trying to talk myself out of the drive :)

Greg I think I met you at Litchfield last year, those jets look familiar.

Have fun!

Agree, RWY 18R ar DFW may not be hard enough for that!

But I think Guillermo's still holds the record @31 lbs.
