DAVE....[X(][X(][sm=tongue_smile.gif]- I mean David- Sorry for my brother-in-law, Gary, announcing your name wrong. But what do you expect from someone who has worked at the zoo for the past 40 years...and lives in Indiana... ([sm=lol.gif][sm=lol.gif][sm=lol.gif])

No need to apologize for Gary, I mean no disrespect for your excellent announcer at all (gotta keep on his good side in case I do decide to hit him up for a job, lol)

You run a great event. We had a great time at Dayton last year. I'm hoping that having the event at the AMA Site does not cause the event to come off as stiff or stuffy. The relaxed atmosphere at ODP really makes for an enjoyable weekend... Bear

Bear,

I guess you haven't attended a Hoosier dawn Patrol. We invented the laid back event. There are virtually no rules, it';s all about flying and fun. None of that puckered up stuff here in Indiana. We started the drive in movies, and all the late night fun. Been doing it 7 years now and we are not about to change. It's basically all about the flying and fun. You'll enjoy it.

We don't have trees, but you can camp right next to the corn and play with the skunks. Just ask Rhonda.

Paul,

Necessity is the mother of invention... I'll get to work on that paper clip-based weather machine & whip up a mean Noreaster that should cover upstate New York. If the paper-clip fails, then we'll look forward to seeing you & your crew next time at Hoosier Dawn Patrol 2011!

From Wikipedia....
''Hoosier (pronounced /ˈhuːʒər/) is the official demonym for a resident of the U.S. State of Indiana. Although residents of most U.S. states typically adopt a derivative of the state name, e.g., Indianan or Indianian, natives of Indiana never use these demonyms. The exact etymology of the word is unknown, but it has been in use since at least 1830. According to Bill Bryson, there are many suggestions for the derivation of the word ''Hoosier,'' but none is universally accepted. Historian Jacob Piatt Dunn, Indiana historian and longtime secretary of the Indiana Historical Society, noted that ''hoosier'' was frequently used in many parts of the South in the 19th century for woodsmen or rough hill people. He traced the word back to ''hoozer,'' in the Cumberland dialect of England. This derives from the Anglo-Saxon word ''hoo'' meaning high or hill. In the Cumberland dialect, the word ''hoozer'' meant anything unusually large, presumably like a hill. It is not hard to see how this word was attached to a hillbilly or redneck.''


Fascinating.

Hey Paul and Joe,

Thanks for a great event![sm=thumbup.gif] That was the first ODP for me and it certainly won't be the last!

Also, thanks for my first experience riding the crash cart. Now my life's complete.[8D]

Paul,

You guys do a great job, It was a fun event. I won't tell you what I threatened to do, because of the heat, but when I mentioned it, dudes started putting away and hiding their cameras, except for Rhonda. Huh, just realized that! You got to be careful around her when you talk about removing clothes.


BTW, Congrats on the test flight of the 1/2 scale D-VI. Great marathon effort to get it flying again. I have the entire flight on video and it will be on the HDP website in a day or 2.

It's great group of guys that travel to our events, hopefully we can continue to build both events.

steve

You've got to be REAL careful when Rhonda has a camera in her hands.

Ok, top ten things I learned at this years ODP....
10. DO NOT put a screw through your aileron servo wire.
9. Yummmmm Pork (and that's all I'm say'in).
8. A 1/4 scale Dr1 will not do a touch and go at 70+ MPH.
7. Del Johnson does not need to be recertified to use a fire extinguisher (see #10 above)
6. A leaf blower can be used as support equipment (also see #10 and #7 above).
5. A 1/4 scale SPAD cannot take out a 1/3 scale DVI.
4. Barn swallows.....their not as cute as you think.
3. Blinder availibility will be increased for attendees as Bear exits the shower..(sorry Bear, Paul
made me do it.) LOL
2. Shade trees....Thank the Lord for shade trees.
And the #1 thing I learned at the ODP.....Do not put a screw through your aileron servo wire....

Oh and 1a. Art still doesn't have a plane finished.

Thanks again to everyone for coming, what a great time.

Oh and 1a. Art still doesn't have a plane finished.

I guess you can just call me 1a. Its better than being called late to the pig roast!

Come to think of it, 1a is a lot better than what I am called most of the time.

ps .......... I wonder how long it will take for me to build my half scale?

OK ! ALRIGHT ALREADY !

(I think this is what's called revisionist reporting)

Thanks to all the ODP personnel who helped on this fabulous event!

My favorite parts:

1 A field shower with unending hot water

2 Pig Roast

3 All the decorations for the Honey Moon suite - it was "ROCKING !"

4 The cool walking stick that was presented to me by Prop Nut.......so that I would have something to do since I didn't have a plane to fly.

JEFF. YOU STILL DA MAN !!!!

Steve,

I'll be there. Hopefully I can get the Albi fixed before then. Took a hard landing causing some gear damage. Should be a simple fix. Well, it would be a simple fix for most of you guys, but for me it may be a major fix. Anyway, it should be there. I was looking forward to starting something else, but now I must get it repaired. At least I know what it will fly like. By the way I can't wait to see the video you took.
Thanks,
Martin

This was the highlight of the event for me:

I was mixing it up with Joe's 1/3 scale D-6. I think what happened was, his D6 is 1/3 scale and my SPAD is 1/4 scale, so my perception was off. We were chasing each other around and I pulled up into a reversal to get behind him and when I came back down, instead of being behind him, I ended up in the same air space. [X(]

Here's the incident report:

His prop sheared off my top right wing and it got jammed up in his undercarriage. All the while he was nursing his plane back his prop was shredding up my wing and flinging bits of it! My lower right wing was hanging on by just a piece of cloth. All I could do was cut the throttle and frantically work the rudder and elevator to try and straighten it out before it hit. Fortunately, it hit on the left lower wing tip first (both left wings have broken spars.) Miraculously, the fuselage is intact, exept for a small rip in the side and a cracked stringer. The prop doesn't even have a mark on it! The wings are a writeoff, so I'll have to build new ones. That shouldn't be too difficult since they have basically all the same ribs and the wings are flat. I probaby won't build new ones until this winter, although I do have a month or so before Hoosier DP. maybe I'll try for that.

Of course the LG is damaged, but it's only one wire strut bent and the wood fairings around it are split. It's just a matter of straightening out the wire and epoxying the wood back together, then touching up the paint.

It was a wonder to watch it all happen. Too bad it was me!

Jim

It's so clear to me know.

I'm usually never at a loss for words.
I was acting as Jim's spotter on that ill-fated sortie, I wasjust sort oftongue-tied as I watched theairspace between the two planes disappear really fast.
It was at that point that I realized that the job of spotter means more than just come out to the flightline with me and watch me fly my plane.
As a spotter, one is expectedto widen one's view, to expect the unexpected, to anticipate the potential dangers aloft.
I did have a good fix on Lee's monoplane as I was anticipating that it's wings were going to come off any second from the wake vortex of the larger models.

That never happened, something else did.
Oh well, I'll get the hang of spotting......eventually.

And to think that Jim was going to hand off the transmitter to me after a few more laps to experience how well the SPAD flys.

So what do youdo immediately after a mid-air? Which plane should you watch?

It didn't take long for either of us to realize the Spadwas no longer flying well. Too bad the tall weeds got cut down that morning. They would have been very beneficial as the SPAD quickly reached the ground.Definitely more of a re-entry than a final approach. There was no roll out. More of a roll-up

So the SPAD was down but there was still more drama aloft.

Standing just a bit behind Jim's right, my gaze shifted to Joe's D.VI. I watched in still-silent amazement as Joe struggled to make the runway. It was animpressive display of airmanship andpart shredding. But what parts were fueling the debris stream?
Only after he landed wasthe debris source positively identified. Could the SPAD's roundel have been any better centered in the Fokker's landing gear?
Bullseye Joe!

The only thing more important than being a skilled pilot is tobe experienced in the art of model aircraft repair.

This was my first time at ODP. Looking forward to next year. Thanks for a fantastic, action packedevent!

Finally...edited down the pics and tweaked most a bit. I'll post the better ones a few at a time, and post a link to the album when done. If I know the pilot's name, I'll add that. Sorry if I've left someone out.

It was sure a great weekend.
