It's been a bit since the first Toys for Tots campaign and thought it would be nice to show the event again to the 'world'. This year will be my 4th year hosting. The 'Flight of Dreams' was named for the event couple of years ago and the organization of charity has changed a bit. I still give to the Marine Corp Reserve Toys for Tots, and have added the Rainbow Room of Wood County. If you have never heard of the Rainbow Room, here is a short version of what they do.

The Rainbow Room, a resource center for Child Protective Service caseworkers. Children who are abused and/or neglected usually come into care with little or no personal belongings. The Rainbow Room is stocked with all new items for children ranging in age from newborns to teenagers, such as clothing, shoes, baby formula, diapers, and personal hygiene items in order to help provide immediate needs of the children receiving services from CPS.

The proceeds are split between the two organizations.
The T.U.F.F. club has been the main pilot supporter of the event, but everyone is welcome to attend, chat, fly, drive what ever you have for remote control for a landing fee of an unopened toy or monetary donation. The public is invited to come by and see what we do, again for the same admission.
I'll be posting up some pictures as I did on the first year after the event. Hopefully the weather will give us a break from the rain.
Never in the wildest dream I would think this would go this long, but I enjoy to be able to 'give back' to the community I grew up in.

Thanks for reading and hope to see you soon.

Just completed the last SW district IMAC contest out at Las Vegas. I spent the entire year in the Sportsman bracket and it was an amazing experience. I saw my scores and skills consistently improve from beginning of the year to the last contest. I got to participate in the Tucson Aerobatic Shootout, competed against/with International Sportsman pilots and got to scribe next to legendary personalities in the Industry and Precision Aerobatic arena (Jerry H thank you!).

Along the way there were trials and tribulations that tested my resolve to be a better precision aerobatic RC Pilot... however, through the support of my wife and my team mates (Team Kaos), I achieved some amazing milestones in 2015. The foundation is set for the 2016 IMAC season!

Well, yet again it's that time of year.

2015 has been fantastic for me. My first visit to Oshkosh, my first complete aircraft build finished (and flown). Numerous "once in a lifetime" views of the world from the air, 6 or 7 films (I even seem to have finally seem gotten to grips with Premier Elements at long last !)

Anyway, here it is - 150 flying hours shoe horned into 4 minutes

I really do hope you enjoy watching it

Got to put the first four flights on my new Aeroworks Yak 55 today. My first thoughts are that this plane is very fun! It tracks super clean lines and with a little more adjustments to the CG it will do some great 3D. I got some video of the last flight before we packed up tis afternoon.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Building my first giant scale and gas airplane !!!
I recently acquired a 72" yak 55 (thanks again Dave!!), it is going to be my first gas plane, I am so used to the ease of electrics that this has been a bit of a project, I still have yet to get my dle 35 idleing good. I just haven't had much time to get it tuned with a two year old running around, but I am excited when its ready for its maiden. I will update some pics soon.

Hello everyone. Another little vid to show off the extreme characteristics of this fun new foamy from Twisted and RC Factory. It's a real sweet setup. I'm flying 9x4.2 Carbon props from PT (available at Twisted) and TP 325 mAh 2S packs that are 70c (Magna Series). It's very lite but you can fly it outside in light breeze. Real cool

How much clearance is needed for adequate protection from overheating of adjacent aircraft plywood structure? I've got a DLE 55RA with stock DLE cannister and header pipe installed in an Extreme Flight RC 88" Edge 540. Right now the minimum clearance is about 1/4" between the header pipe and the under side of the the motor box.

The new EDGE 540 V3 from Twisted. This plane is really going to be sweet for indoor this year. It does vector the motor off the rudder servo if you want. Super Light, thin EPP, just enough carbon to make it strong and you know, like all TH products, it's durable. Tried it out in the outdoors on a 2S 360 and liked it. Indoors, it's going to be great. Just got it trimmed and looking forward to seeing some new motor packs in the mail soon. In the vid, it is all stock with the Twisted Digital power combo and it is vectored.

Much more to come on this new release.

A young chap I met at the UK R/C Nats a year or two back is now doing a media course and needed to make a mini documentary as a course assignment.

Here's the result. Hopefully worth a watch for a few minutes.

Some pretty much "raw" footage of my initial attempts at Aerobatics in my new RV-6

Quite a contrast to the Pitts, much faster speeds and more height gain / loss within each figure - but actually quite satisfying to fly.

I really enjoyed the bit at the end playing in the clouds. The extra speed over my Pitts makes for a more dynamic feel to this particular experience.

Anyway, hope you like it (but please don't expect any elaborate editing / multi camera angles - this is "as is", 1 angle / take and some music added.)
