Hey everyone,

I went to this event last year and we had a great time. Four of us from the Tampa/Lakeland area came down and really enjoyed some great flying and new friends. Really nice guys running the show and awesome open place to fly. The runway was a new grass field that I assume is even better this year and was already pretty good last year. I am sorry to say I will not be attending this year because of schedule conflicts with the family.

We had a lot of fun and flew all day long. I urge you to check them out!

I will miss Bob and the guys. Have fun and see you next year!

Scott

Just got back and she flys great! Except for my right (stock) retract which keeps colapsing. Need to find that fine line between not collapsing and not hanging too low when retracted.
Your planes look great! What manufactures and size are they and which is your fave to fly?

They are all TOP-FLITE giant scale ARF's & ARC's . I got rid of most of my kit built planes, I still have a TOP-FLITE giant scale Corsair kit to finish. I also have their P-47 and an ESM VAL. I have been flying 2 P-51 arfs for the past 4 years so I 'am more familiar with the plane and can almost fly it blind folded , but they are all great flyer's.

thanks Bob
