    Just another day at the field

    Well, not really. Bryan Hebert decided he wanted to have a small clinic at our field outside Baton Rouge this weekend. Everyone invited people they thought could benefit from the help, and of course we had the usual suspects that can be seen around our field when prepping for the Nats. I invited one of my toughest competitors in Advanced in District 6, Kevin O'Connor, knowing he had been fighting some issues with his Integral, and he ended up getting some unconventional help considering all the work was done at the field! Bryan is a true asset to the pattern community. The picture files are kinda large, so I can only put a couple at a time.

    RE: Just another day at the field

    After watching the issues that Kevin was having with his Integral, Bryan Hebert decided Kevin could benefit from an incidence change on the wing... and it doesn't have adjusters!

    RE: Just another day at the field

    Finishing up the work, and talking about the results post-flight. Kevin was VERY happy with the changes. Bryan is giving Kevin a copy of his trim chart that outlines just about every bad habit that a pattern airplane can exhibit and the fixes to those issues. Bryan will be making this chart available through his website in the near future. Keep an eye on Hebert Competition Designs for more information.

    RE: Just another day at the field

    This was almost as much a social event as it was a practice day. We had a good lunch of hamburgers and potato salad, and spectators and pilots alike sat around chatting away.

    RE: Just another day at the field

    Great pictures Matt! I am very happy with the changes to my Integral that Bryan made. It was fun getting pattern guys together for a non-contest field day. Thanks for the burgers!

    RE: Just another day at the field

    Bryan is not only a great designer, he is a great guy, it is not ussual to find a person who is not affraid to give the RIGHT information and help everyone with his proven method.

    It does look like a great day for sure.

    ORIGINAL: mjfrederick

    This was almost as much a social event as it was a practice day. We had a good lunch of hamburgers and potato salad, and spectators and pilots alike sat around chatting away.
    Matt forgot to mention, it was a three day event. With two travel trailers onsite for the weekend, I am now planning to build permanent hookups for them to use in the future. After a few tough years with hurricanes, our club is well on the way to reclaiming its place in the pattern community. Most people remember us as Dixie RC, now renamed Atchafalaya Basin RC. We have hosted many, many contests dating back to the early eighties. Our club has members with multiple NATS awards, WC's awards and also several members that have been quite active in the NSRCA.

    We flew Friday, Saturday AND today. Friday was sausage poboys, Saturday night was white beans with rice, today was spaghetti. The eats were all great! Today, it got HOT, with the temp display in my SUV indicating 101 when I finally called UNCLE and went home. High points included the late Saturday night wine tasting social till 10:00, while watching Bryan Strachan do some night flying with his Extra 260 (I think) which was plumb lit up with a light kit. I was amazed.

    This morning started out with a small mishap, a plane got attacked by a tree. I have a scientific explanation, all true, but it winds up with .... trees suck. Then, we all had a piece of the Bryan Hebert Happy Birthday chocolate chip cookie. Two bipes in the air today, the Euphoria and the Alferma, also a Valiant, a Shinden, a Patriot 3D. Yesterday included two Integrals. Heck, several guys even flew control line yesterday. We were all betting... over or under. ( Whether or not the pilot would last over or under five seconds before crashing.) Jim Thompson and Bryan Strachan both went the distance! Jim also spent some time with the buddy box instructing his young grandson. Gee whiz, it was a fantastic weekend, thanks all that came, for making it what it was. We're gonna do this again.
