    RE: New D3 Pattern Contest

    Jon,

    No one else that I am aware of,..We have the judging seminar tomorrow in the Charlotte area,..Lakeland next week and Mocksville,NC on May 2-3rd,..perhaps a bit busy for most. It's my 6 year old's B-day on the 24th,..so we are going to take her to Sea World on Friday morning. Then I will get a few flights in Friday evening or after noon. Everyone is welcome to join me after flying at the house on wheels for a cold refreshment and BS session.

    I am flying FAI,...are we flying the F program on Sunday? Our Dist. dosen't do the F-programs,...errrrr!

    RE: New D3 Pattern Contest

    If Jason shows up, I know he will want to fly F. You better call and bug him to attend. Last I heard he was trying to move testing for Top Gun from the Lakeland weekend to another time so he could come. He probably needs some persuasion. You need to work on Woodward also to come up, as last I heard he was waffling about coming. Ron Ellis is another possibility, but he didn't show at Ocala.

    I'm flying AT Masters; right now it is mastering me.

    RE: New D3 Pattern Contest

    Guys, I have a business trip from Wednesday to Friday night next week. If I can come, I'll have to drive up early Saturday morning (almost 5 hours). We'll see. I still haven't flown my plane sine my Peru trip and I had to repair some damage from shipping (or customs inspection) from the trip home.
    Thanks,

    RE: New D3 Pattern Contest

    Jon,

    I was told that Jason had Sun & Fun prior arrangements,..flying demo's or something. I asked about Jim and I think we was planning on a trip out of country,.....but wavering as you indicated.

    Anyway,...we will have fun,...it's a no points issue for me anyway.

    RE: New D3 Pattern Contest

    Hi Bill,

    Someone squeezed the heck out of the fuselage just behind the wing adjusters, as the internal strucutre was broken. There was an inspection notice in the crate. I also took the opportunity to install new servos sense the other had more than 100 flights on them (sent for new pots/gears). I'm going to try for some practice and trimming tomorrow. Also, my YS 170 came home with a badly bent needle valve (again from shipping), so I'll find out if the there was any other damage tomorrow too. I replaced the needle. Also, one wing tip has a depression hole in it now, on the top surface.

    RE: New D3 Pattern Contest

    Yah,...I know all about what happens during shipping,.......especially when it's not crated.[] Anyway,...hope the flying goes well,.....keep the inspection tag for next time and tape it to the crate,..maybe they they won't touch it,..........

    RE: New D3 Pattern Contest

    This is about a two hour drive for me. I consider it commuting distance.
    So I'm going to try to make it. Maybe Jim Woodward can struggle up and then FAI can play.

    Pity us international travelers, JW and me. I just made it in from Thailand yesterday.

    Then my question becomes which plane to fly. The Webra runs great once you do 10 minutes of hocus-pocus to get it started. I'd prefer the electric Element, but I only have two sets of batteries. Is there power at the field?

    Hey Ron, unfortunately there is no electricity at the field. so the Webra powered airplane may be the way to go.

    Ron,..

    I will have my Toyhauler with me at the field, you are welcome to charge. I have a built-in generator and and outside outlet in the front storage compartment. You are more than welcome to use it. Bring'em both then decide,..if you have room. I hope to have my Element 30 done so you guys can play with it,..it's EP.

    RE: New D3 Pattern Contest

    I'll be there for sure, early Saturday morning, with sunglasses on! It appears Mike C. & Humberto P. will be making the trip, and from what I've been told, maybe even Marcio, from Atlanta. Good to know O.J. Frets is planning on getting involved again. The more the merrier.
