I went to that TOC. Met and talked to Hanno Prettner and got tips on how to do knife edge spins. Took my daughter with us, she was 3 months old at the time.

It was truly a "World Class" event. Worth traveling from Japan.

I don't believe so.....and even if it was there'd be no way I could prove it.

Am replacing the 'thumpin' 5.8 SACHS-DOLMAR with a 3W80.....

I think a new Vegas contest with this format would be a good thing for scale aerobatics.

Is the TAS not a 21st century effort to do similar?

At the time...the event was sponsored by Circus Hobbies which was part of Circus Circus Hotel (whose owner was Bill Bennet). Those pink satin jackets were the "shitznizell" back then. I bought my first rc airplane from Circus Hobbies inside Circus Circus.

Its what we need. I was very fortunate to attend the 2000-2002 TOC. Nothing like LasVegas. Attend the TOC all day, take the lady out on the town to a fabulous dinner and show at night.
