I'm going to have my Predator 2.2M up for sale, pass the word around. Anywhere from turbine-ready, RTF less turbine, BNF, or even turnkey with a low-hours SW170b, Spektrum powersafe rx, and Spektrum DX18.

We have spent most of the day cleaning and preparing the field. The main road in has been graded smooth. That is a big plus for RV and Trailers.
For the pilots that are making the trip don’t forget:
  • FAA registration number on your aircraft.
  • Your LTMA paper work that AMA now requires. We will have the necessary forms if you need them.
We will see you all soon.

Debbie & Clay

With RC events starting to be cancelled now too, just want to make sure we are still on before I drive the last couple hundred miles Tuesday morning. Already made most of the trip from Reno

I'm coming from work Wednesday morning! Will have to nap in my trailer instead of flying in the morning, but it beats working!

Sorry guys, but I texted yesterday with Clay and decided I'd back out from going. I pretty much assumed I'd go this year, but with all the hoopla with the virus stuff, I decided to not make the 1000 mile drive, in case they start adding more travel restrictions. I was planning on driving up to Mesa afterward to visit relatives too, but did not want to endanger them in case I unknowingly picked something up.

So I'll stay home and build... Have fun, see ya next time, and post pics! And eat a nacho or two for me.

I am with you Ron. I have my parents staying with me for the next month and I would hate to expose them.

Being a health care provider specialist and avid turbine jet modeler I would urge the organizers to cancel this event.
I have made many "older " friends down there and would hate to meet only 3 out of 5 of them next year.

Please, please reconsider - its the right thing to do.
