FG Event Coverage - Show Me 3D Fly-In

FlyingGiants sent Miss Ashley to cover the Show Me 3D event! Stay tuned for photos, videos and words!

Meet me in St. Louis!

From Miss Ashley...

I'm here in the heart of St. Louis at the St. Louis RC Flying Association field for Red Wing RC's Show Me 3D Fly-In. Can I say that this field is beautiful? It's right in the middle of St. Louis and you wouldn't know it! There's an open field, a paved runway, beautiful back drop, a creek in the background, and a pretty neat little group of guys and gals!

It was a gorgeous day despite having rained at least 2 inches last night. We had a full day of 3D and I got to see my dear friends, Terry and Susan Schrier. Terry is a local member and is also a member of the Missouri Radio Control Flying for the Deaf. I'm working on my signing! This hobby really does have no bounds.

After a hearty lunch of hot dogs and burgers, it was everyone's favorite time of day, RAFFLE TIME! We passed out trophies and prizes, and maybe an airplane or two! I got as much killer-non-filler video I could get, so check out the pics, check out the vids and I'll see you guys tomorrow!!!!!!!!

I had a great time, but then I always have a great time at flying events. Thanks to Tim and Heather of Redwing RC for sponsoring the event. Thanks to all of the pilots who came from out of town to fly with us. The weather forecast was terrible, but the weather turned out fine. A special thanks to Ashley for the fine job on her pictures and videos.

I got a kick out of watching Tim Kunath wring out my Stix 3D 60 profile plane. He seemed to like the way it flies.

It was like the beans jumped up and grabbed my landing gear. Luckily my plane only suffered minor damage and a quick bath for my stupidity!
