Default Road trips: 2019

That time of year again to be thinking about flyins!

Picked up a 10X20 'party' tent with velcro walls from Menards plus 11% rebate.
Also four 'screw type' stakes and four tie down straps.
I found the stakes in the pet department.
My present 3 10X10's are a good 5 seasons old and getting a little 'ratty' with two of the tops having tears in them.

WOW, nice looking set up there Sam, looks like you'll need a little help setting it up when you get to the flying sites; other than that I think it will hold you and all your big warbirds.

Looking forward to seeing you out there, Sam!

My recently widowed 85 yo Dad, who was a Navy flier in the 50's, recently moved to town, and much to my surprise picked up this decent foamie at Hobby Haven. He had it put together in one evening and I radio'd it up the next day

Got him a RF-8 with a Knife-edge download to practice on, so I hope to bring him with me on a trip or two.

He says the absence of rudder pedals is confusing

63 years between photos!

Toledo (cont)












About 25% of the space is now for stands and drone flying plus an additional 5 bucks to 'get in'.

Americana:
Toledo Mudhens. Something to be said for minor league baseball where a mortgage need not be taken out to go to a game.






Fortunately, the city didn't tear down all the buildings in the 70's when 'modern' was the 'way to go'!

GCRCC static show.
Local club's members bring in what they have built over the winter; always held in April.

Hempel's 65% DR-1



Three 400 oz servos per aileron.



ZDZ 500 2 cylinder. I believe owner said only two of these made. I only know of the ZDZ 500 being a 4 cylinder which Brian Omeara has in his 164" P-47.



Hand carved pilot.
