Does anyone have the scoreboard pictures? My abrupt departure/asking for a friend needs to know.
I wouldn't take her to a dog fight even if she had a chance to win.

Matt said the new ship was "awesome".  Sounds like he had some company in that opinion!  Should be a shoot out in Muncie again!

It was a hot contest!!! I checked the heat index and it reached 100 by 11am. Nitro and more importantly the shade  was everyone’s friend on Sunday. There were a lot of beautiful airplanes out there. Steve Moon flew his new Nemesis painted after the air racer. It’s a really cool airplane!! Steve remarked that his plane was about 1/2 scale of the real one because the real one is so small. Gaylord flew a really cool looking jet. It looked gigantic sitting on the ground. Joe Hildreth had his Fw-190 on the advanced circle. I got to fly it a couple months ago and it’s flies a lot better than it should. Doug Moon flew Bob Gieseke’s 2003 Bear with the PA 75 installed. The power/weight is outstanding, and the airplane was so nimble and locked in everywhere it was in the pattern. Steve said Doug needed an 18 point handicap in addition to no appearance points because the airplane was too awesome and too light! Hahahaha. I flew the new plane that has trimmed out to be an awesome airplane. I used 15% nitro for the first time on the 75, and it liked it in the heat. It was fat dumb and happy chugging along at 5.5 in a deep, rumbling 4 stroke almost everywhere, and broke into the 2 right when I needed it. After the contest, I flew Crist Rigotti’s new electric and gave him a couple small suggestions to try, but it was also a really good airplane with lots of potential.

Huge thanks to the judges, Phillip Nickles, Dale Gleason, Ken Culbertson and Jake Moon  for standing out in the sweltering heat so we could fly! 

Bring on the NATS!

I’m going to post some pics of mine from my phone and they will probably be sideways unfortunately

It was a good contest.  It was great to see people again out in competition. 

It should be noted that Steve's plane just a few weeks ago was crashed badly and the fuse was totaled.  Being a take apart model he was able to save the wing the controls and some other items and rebuild it. He did this while working out of town weeks at a time.  He should show very well at the nats with this plane.

Matt flew really well and should do just fine in Muncie.

Thank you to all of the helpers and workers.

It was hot and calm, the kind of air that really drives motors crazy.  Advanced was more of a "can I get my motor to quit" contest than it was about maneuvers.  75% in the 1st round went over.  Lots of very good looking planes.  Two that caught my eye were Matt's new ship and Gaylord's Jetstream.

I would like to thank Matt for not including my ship in the pictures but I don't embarrass easily so I will round out the field.  It is/was a Vector 40 ARF borrowed from Mike Scott that he used to see how far a plane could throw a battery.  It was like bringing a butter knife to a Nuclear attack, still I had the time of my life.  It has been two very long years since my last official during which I have gotten in exactly four flights thanks to Matt, Crist and Mike, and one pattern.  It made my day to get those pattern points - twice!  Great to see a lot of old friends and make some new ones.

I got to meet Jake Moon for the first time except in passing.  What a nice young man.  We judged advanced together so I got my feet wet in that arena as well. 

For those of you NATS bound, be afraid, very afraid.  Matt's new ship is a real threat, especially when he is flying it!

He is not kidding there...he DID get his feet wet! Everyone got his/her feet wet. It was pretty much a swamp until you got on the circles. It's been raining steadily in these parts for months. The grass and weeds have thrived. Who wants their lines pull-tested in three feet of sawgrass and a foot of water? Who will volunteer to judge in standing water? (was that a turtle or a frog? 'Gator?)

I'm glad I did...we saw some outstanding flying. Having spent a long time grounded, the flyers were eager to get airborne and strut their stuff. Except for two Mallards that chose to swim/walk.

It was overheard that Carrier was not flown because the USS Fogarty drifted away...

Another one in the books...impossible without the loyalty and enthusiasm of all involved.

Another 5 minutes and I would have got a flight in.
