Totaled the J-Tec due to an engine failure,,,,,,AGAIN! so I will be out most likely for good. I am in between careers. Hoping to get a job in Information Technology. If I do then maybe next season.

Keep an eye out in the following weeks for some good deals on Parts. I can deliver to the Molalla contest.

Items coming up on FG after service will be:

Falcon Spinners 2 blade and 3 blade

Mej 28.5 X 12 Three Blade.

Vess Balance rings

Complete flight package from JR Americas Propo (NOT DF/JR)

9 servos, 2 center hubs, 1 receiver with sat, Extensions from Tail Dragger. IBEC with blue LED 6.6. volt, Special edition XG-11 Transmitter. Sea Craft 1- 1/4 Arms two sets 18 total. Sea Craft servo plates.

The J-Tec is fixable but I do not have the time or the money. I will make anyone looking for a winter project a great deal if interested.

Wow!
What a great contest!
We enjoyed great weather and had a outstanding field to fly from!
Special thanks to Gale for hosting the event, Rick for actually running the thing because Gale decided to go on holidays!
So wonderful to see all my great friends in this IMAC community we have up here!
Congrats to all the winners!
We had some really close battles, Everyone helped one another out.
Cool to witness and be a part of. What itís all about!
Iím targeting Siverhills for my next US event, I hope to see all of you there!
Iím hoping everyone has a safe drive home tonight.

Well all, the trip to Italy was AMAZING to say the least. I highly recommend you go if ever given the opportunity. If you want to see some pics i have loads and would share a few. Next, if you haven't heard, my plane is hard down for a while. While flying in the Moses lake Airshow, I was doing a 45 degree up-line with 1.5 rolls centered and was setting up to push over the top and head back towards myself, when all %$## broke loose... No power, at first i thought the engine shut off and I was a dead stick. After rolling and pointing the plane back at me, I noticed there was no prop... Yes the main shaft came apart. The hub, back plate, prop and nosecone were all still attached and floating back towards the ground. I made a safe and well executed landing in front of the crowd to a round of applause. After closer inspection, I found the gas tank released fuel eating a major section of the belly pan, so I have a major project now.. this sucks! I'm thinking about the Trevor mobile now!

For Sale!

Okay fellow pilots, and those who are looking for a good flying plane. I'm clearing out the trailer in hopes of getting bigger plane. I'm putting my CARF 2.6m Yak-55 SP fantasy scheme. It's all set up and ready to fly. I have it currently set up on my JR11x, and it might be possible to transfer the programming to a similar system. Currently running a DA 100L on cans. If you are really interested, I can provide all the other specs (servos, Batteries & Smart-fly board). I'm asking $2000 as it sits, ready to fly, just add gas. Willing to travel to meet & deliver if not to far away. We can discuss if there is a deal pending.

When the wife is away (visiting her sister) the mice will play! I had a chance to bring the backup plane out of the trailer and burn a couple of gallons. I picked up this Extreme Flight Extra with a DA200 (magnesium) from a friend who was getting out of competitive flying.

We'll we need to talk bro, I have not been flying since the incident, however I just finished a cubano cigar I brought back from Italy along with an Irish Death Soda on my front porch, thanks to Tim Cooper and his influence, it's a great pairing! I hope to see you all soon, if I fly or not. My pull out the Biplane for the regional just so i can fly a bit.
