<div id="post_message_19072267">Advanced Precision Composites has donated their 8X8E propellers for race contestants competing in our first EF-1 Race this September. This kind of support is one of many things that makes it so great to be a part of this hobby.

Thank you to APC and Annie T for your support!

How about some pics? How did it go? How many participants in your EF-1 event?
Thanks

Epic fail...

Everyone who said they would show for the race did not, and somehow there was some confusion about it being a 3 pole race instead of a two. The only ones who raced were another club member and myself because we bought EF-1 planes for this event. I doubt the club will try to host another EF-1 Race. The rest of the fly in was fun and we had great weather.

Don't give up. I think with persistence it will survive. The technology is so much better now than ever before for electrics. There are several choices for planes, and the bits that go inside.
