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.
Mervin Ory of Church Point, Louisiana and member of AOA in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana proudly showed off his amazing Wright Flyer at a recent AOA swap meet. Warping wings and other exact scale details are amazing! Mervin Has been flying RC for over 50 years and is an avid builder. He says that “he always flies what he builds”.
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.
This is a scale master model that has not flown yet.. She has been to the flight line 3 times but not able to get correct steering. I believe the issue has been corrected. With good thoughts and lots of help she will fly on this Thursday. Till then Keep Flying.
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.
