Greetings from sunny warm (hot) Albuquerque. Bret and I brought our 60 size sticks to the field this weekend. We have been flying these all summer. Most days we have been trying to get about 6 to 8 flights before the heat runs us off. I don’t know how many touch and goes we have done, one after another. While I enjoy my WW1 planes, this has become my plane of choice. Both planes are electric on 6 cells. We are having a great time. The picture is of Brian Regan AVP (me) on the left and Bret Tabor on the right. So far we have not flown the wrong plane. Ha.
Hi from Albuquerque. A month or so ago I attended two events in one weekend. On Saturday I went up to Farmington NM for the San Juan Radio control Club’s electric fly in. It was a blast. There were about 20 pilots and the flew a lot. There was a contest or two with a few guys trying them. All in all it was a real fun time.
On Sunday I went to ARCC’s scale meet. I don’t know how many pilots. I think there was about 25 or more. Flying was great. The weather was warm and light winds. Harry and James did an excellent job. I hope they do this again next year.
Greetings from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I went to the local field this morning to get a fright in this Memorial day. There was just a few flyers today. The weather was great. Cool and not windy. I had a good morning.
Went over to the drone side to see some friend fly their drones. There was 5 pilots trying to go in and out of the course they set up. They fly line of site and first person view. Looked like they were having a good time.
The flyers from left to right. Paul Sanchez, Bret Tabor, Jerry Gatewood, Ray Dukart and Jeff Brooks.
Happy Memorial Day and take time to remember the friends we lost this year.
I got his from the Rio Rancho RC Club. They had their first outdoor meeting this year. This is what they had to say.
Hi Brian, Just wanted to touch bases and send you a picture from our last meeting and first of our outdoor meetings of the Rio Rancho RC Flyers. For the past 7 or 8 years we start each meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance. We have quite a number of Reitired Military and our members are all very patriotic.
Thanks Don MCClelland
They sent a picture, sorry I was unable to copy it.
The EAA Land of Enchantment Fly In 2022. What a great show. Lots of cool airplanes. The parking lot was full meaning a good turn out to see all types of planes. The exhibit tables were busy. There were kids and older kids like me enjoying the flying, planes and great weather. The Duke city electric club was there too. They come every year to show of their planes.
I had a real good time walking and talking to some of the pilots. They are just like us modelers, they love to show off their planes.
The 505 Aerobatics RC Club Scale Meet. This was the first scale event for New Mexico’s newest club. There were about 20 or more pilots. The planes were judged both static and flight.
The weekend could not be any better. Harry Antenucci was the CD and did a real good job. Joey, Vince and Jimmy did a lot to get the show going. Marlin Smith along with Vince did almost all the flight judging.
I think everybody had a great time. I know next year will be better. The club learned a lot about running an event. Now that they have one under their belt, look out. It’s going to be great.
On September 10th ARCC will have a Swap meet. Field opens at 7am. No charge to sell your treasures. Tickets will be given for a raffle at noon. Tell your friends and enemies to come out and have a great time. ARCC will also have a club fun fly on the 11th. All are invited to fly.
In June I attended a Electric fun fly in Farmington New Mexico. The San Juan Radio Control Club has this event every June. It is a real laid back fun time. Lots of flying and stories of flying, some true and some maybe not. Ha. They had 16 pilots shooting holes in the sky. There was a pot luck dinner on Saturday.
This is a real fun event to come to. The club will treat you as a member and help in any way. The main goal is to just have fun. Keep this event in mind for next year, it will be electrifying.
Saturday morning Memorial Day weekend. I went out to the field today to fly my new Kadet SR. This was the third or fourth flight on it. It flew just like a Kadet should, nice and slow.
There was about 15 pilots out this morning. We were trying to beat the wind. It has been a little windy for a couple weeks. This morning the winds were just right. Lots of planes in the air at once. I like flying with other planes.
So, let’s not forget those that lost their lives serving our great country. We also lost some flyers and family this year. May we never forget them.
