I got home from the DOGS about 3:30 am Sunday morning. I had to work a 24 hour shift on Sunday.

I enjoyed the trip. Being in an area filled with so much avaitaion history is always very humbling.

Spending time with friends and fellow FlyingGiants is always worth the trip.

The photos from the event and musem are posted in the Media gallery.

Today i edited the video shot from last night.

I got it on YouTube, and it's currently uploading here, to the member galleries...

I picked a bad time to upload it though, haha.

Well I went to the heli fly-in at Mooresville this morning and had a blast, those guys but on a great event. I took over 500 photos and now I have to go through them and throw out the junk! I'll post up the pics in the heli forum when I've got them sorted.

Well the van is packed, I'm ready to go. Waiting for my flying buddy to show up. Then it's the dirve to Dayton.
I'm not ging to be flying this year, but looking forward to spending time with some friends and meeting new ones. What better place than the history soaked city of Dayton. The place where the Wright Brothers turned a bicycle shop into a hanger and lab for creating the first power flight. Just down the road from the Waco field. And, even the grounds of the Air Force musem.I will be back Monday with a ton of photos.

OK friends, I have the oportunity to create my first blog so here we go.
I live in Merida Yucatan Mexico, southern part of the country.
I love building and flying planes, more into 3D than nothing else.
Started with contorl line at age 10 and rubber band free flight.
Fast forward some years and in 2003 I found The Profile Brotherhood. I was amazed!!! Finally a non expensive way to try my hand at 3D with the profile planes!!
Since then I have built (and crashed) several planes but finaly I'm hovering and flat spinning my planes at my will.
Along the way I met some of the finest people in the world, and found ways to buy stuff that wasn't available here in my country.
The Brothers have helped me a lot.
So to round up, thanks to FG tl let me share all this with the comunity.
Jose.

As of right now, there's not a whole lot going on down here. This is about to change, the weather is getting a little cooler, we can actually spend a few hours outside without passing out.

I have an IMAC contest this weekend, I'll let you know how it went.

c'ya for now!!

After the weekend trip into KY a couple of weeks ago, my RC skydiver was in need of major surgery. The body box was in pieces after a 200' dirt dive.

Well after two periods on the operating table, for a total of about 3 hours surgery, Lucky lives.

I gave him a few days to get his strength back and he was airborne again. the jump was a success, but the landing was off. He landed about 25 yards out in the bean field. I have worked on the steering lines on his chute and he is ready for another jump.

Today me and my buddy Brett Bayless (HeyDick on FG) took our brand new DW Foamies BAF Yak out for some flying. Little windy, but had a blast. Tore through about 5 packs before the wind became too much. Good times.
