Stacks on Ohio !! (Youngstown)

Well, it is clearly time to "Stacks-on!" again... date is Sunday 6th of March, Youngstown Ohio.


Stacks-on is just a randomly called, "unorganised" gathering of friends to partake in aerobatic fun. Spawned from 3dHobbyShop addicts, it's all 3D related, so anywhere we're looking at stacking on will need to be happy with 3D nonsense front and center. DJMoose has permission to stack on the Youngstown Highthawks, a great many thanks!

So now we just need to swarm like locusts and have fun!



All my flying fleet will be there, including the new 104" and 59" AJ Slick prototypes. My planes are up for giving free pony rides!... so if you want to fly these two planes before anyone else, just turn up and ask! also there will be my 72" Extra on 8S, and maybe one or two others. Will see, but people are welcome to have a go of whatever I bring.

Also... I'm happy to help trim out a plane and give some advice on any aircraft, be it 3DHS or not, always happy to help so please don't be afraid to ask.


The Nighthawks are also the location of the 2011 FlyingGiants Ohio Huckfest, so this is a great opportunity to sneak to the field to get a feel for the place.


Note: the Nighthawks are an AMA club, will need to be an AMA member to fly there. While unruly and locust-like, it's their field, we will still need to take care of it and be thankful for its use at all times. So far we've been to a few clubs and they've all enjoyed it and welcomed us back any time, so we'd love to keep the perfect score.



STACKS ON!!!


where: www.nighthawksrc.com
when: March 6th, Youngstown, OH

Sounds cool.

I went to the one near Akron and had a good time. I will have to try to remember this date.

Hope to be there.

Awesome!! I also think seeing so much 3D will get the rest of the club members excited about the Huckfest.

It's really a nice field, 3000 ft paved runway (an old airport), a nice shelter...and it's rather far from the road.

See you guys there!

Well this has given me the extra push I needed to get some of my projects finished. Now I am just hoping for good weather.

Aaron are you going to bring the Roo? I may have my 33% extra 260 finished that you will be more than welcome to take for a spin if you would like.

The 87 Roo will make it if I have the room, and if I can mend it... I cracked a few things a month or so ago that need a little attention before I throw it around hard again. And there's some planes I'd like more air time on, the 104, the 72 Extra, 59 Slick...

Happy to fly any airplane, for sure

I know the feeling. I cracked up my 70 inch slick last fall and need to get it out for a test flight. Is Noll coming with you this trip?

Re: Stacks on Ohio !! (Youngstown)

Is it really going to be in Youngstown? The link shows still close to Akron (which for a one day event is still too long of a drive for me ) ... but let's be honest, the 7 hour drive to Youngstown might still be too long as well ... lol.

Noll may have a schedule conflict, but will make it if he's available.

And ya, Youngstown shaves about an hour off where we've had it previous. 7 hours is a stretch. having a fly of a 104 may be reward enough, but that will be up to you

...if you'd like to break the trip, I could prolly convince the wife to let you have a snooze here saturday night, and we push off in the morning. Would split it 5 hours on saturday, 2 on sunday.
