A few of us used to gather there on one of the unused runways to fly our models. I think our
unofficial gathering became the club that is now known as NVRC. We used to have some very
esteemed visitors on occasion-even had Walt Good a time or two. Most of our members were
military or Civil Service, I was the only US Navy member if memory serves me. I remember
Joe Solko and Chuck Porter but most of the names escape me but I still recall faces. Often wonder whatever happened to those great guys. Attached is a picture of my current Taurus along with my best friend. While my first Taurus was outfitted with Reeds this one has JR equipment.
Hi Carson - enjoyed all your history & info on the Tarus. I recently acquired a used Tarus in nice shape with an old HP-61 2 cycle. It flies good overall, but requires a whole lot of down elevator to fly inverted.
Have you found this to be normal for the Tarus's you now fly or have flown ? Thanks so much for your help. Happy flying & modeling. Rod in PA.
