Well we are down to the last couple of weeks for 2016 and let me say, it's been one hell of a roller coaster (at least for me anyways). My time with Hitec has graced me with so many opportunities this year in the hobby and has taken me places I have only dreamed of going to. I've made lots of new friends, grown closer to the ones I've had, and overall had copious amounts of fun along the way.

It kicked off with a bang, AMA Expo 2017. I had one week to prep a number of airplanes for display at the show both at work and in my own time off, including assembling 2 brand new airplanes for demo inside of the flight demonstration area.

It would be the first time I've ever had to work a show and was going to be there Wednesday through Sunday. Most of my time was spent talking with people- from vendors, to customers, to old friends and new, the whole event felt like it whizzed on by in a blur. I did fly a couple of demo flights with the ParkMaster Pro I had built the week prior with the maiden happening indoors. Didn't really have time to set the airplane up properly before the event so it flew a little odd, but we still had fun with it.

Even though Sunday came quickly, it couldn't come quick enough as I just wanted to get home and get away from everything for a bit. Back to work on Monday

As January came to a close, the first giant scale event of the year took place and me and my flying buddies were all back at it with instigating on the deck shenanigans. Joe Hunt was nice enough to put the event together and I found myself and my girlfriend staying up there Friday and Saturday night and heading home Sunday- originally our plan was to head up Friday night and head home Saturday night but we had so much fun Saturday that we decided to stay a little longer

About as low as you can go before your airplane gets lighter!!!!
