Tons of test flying done by most of the racers and all I can say is "wow". These unlimiteds are fast. This is going to be a race that allows many racers to have a chance to be on top. So many fast planes. Ths Sportsman class has taken off with a boom with over a dozen entries. Fantastic job to the board for bringing this new class to the table.
Lets hope for safe flying tomorrow and superb weather.

Made it out to Rabbit today at about 10 am. Managed to see the F-1GT, F-1 & Unlimited finals. It was disappointing that all the racing was over well before noon, but I really enjoyed what I saw.

Wow what a weekend! First I want to say thank you to all of you, I had a blast announcing for you guys. That was some of the best racing I've seen. The event went smooth with only a couple of crashes.... Thank you again and I would love to be back announcing for you all!


I posted the formula 1 pro gold and unlimited gold on youtube, but can't post the url here. So you can look it up under my name MrJoeDonkey on youtube.

lownverted, we knew the winds were coming so we went for 6 rounds (one more than required) and hurried to get the trophy rounds done before the weather came in. And it did blow like crazy. We normally run a round on Sunday and then trophies, but these planes are too expensive to risk damaging so we opted to just do trophies. Sorry we couldnt do more but it was in the best interest of the planes and pilots and safety to all.

Did you have enough to run the Warbirds or did they get wrapped up into the Sportsman class?

Not enough. Only one warbird showed and never flew. So we had all sundowners (2) run in sportsman as well.
Sportsman Class was awesome.
In one heat there was
Sundowner with YS175
GR7 with a GT80
Stiletto unlimited with a DA150
Christian Eagle Biplane with a GT80
Ole Tiger with a DLE110

It was a colorful class with many different planes flying.

No worries. I had a great time, met some old friends and enjoyed the racing. I hadn't seen any USRA racing for at least 25 tears back in the Madera days. Good stuff!

Where do you guys buy the kits at? So far everyone I've contacted the phone is disconnected or they don't build anymore.

Which airframe are you interested in? Stilettos and Miss Ashleys are still being made, some Formula airplanes also.

I was interested in something like the 42% Nemesis or maybe the stiletto . Are the miss Ashley's 40% fixed gear?

The Miss Ashley II is an Unlimited-class airframe, it competes with the Stiletto. Both are around 25% scale, and require retracts.

I'm not sure there's a Nemesis available other than building from the Hostetler plans. It would require some mods to be competitive.

Where would I pick up the kits? For the miss Ashley or the F1 class like the Kelly or GR7?

I build the Ashley and GR-7. The Kelly molds are MIA as far as I know. Other F1 airframes available would be the Video Cassutt from PMB and I think most if not all the Rankin F1 airplanes are available. RnR has Pole Cat molds also.

Bear in mind that these are all custom built to order, you're not likely to find anything on the shelf.

He is CRG whom youve been conversing with.

I build the original GR-7 with the normal nose, it takes a 5-inch spinner. Canopies are available.

BJ,



Yes Craig builds the bigger nosed GR. Those runway lights are tough to battle with, but you had 2 wings????
Definately missed both you and Jason. Those wings you have bolt up to either of the GR configurations.

I probably could have made it happen, but money was tight, my caller had to work, and the saddle broke so I threw in the towel. I put 5 tanks through it all went good untill i took out the light.

I've picked up a couple old Cosmic Wind planes to play with. Does anyone know of any used GR-7 airframes in Ca that might be for sale?
