Thoughts of Summer

Folks,
I just watched the Cincinnati Video. Very Nice.
Seeing the green grass, familiar faces, and big airplanes really makes me look forward to the comming flying season.
I didn't recognize the tag names of people on the thread with the video, but I was at that contest flying basic with a 35% blue and white extra.
I have 10 contests on my calander, and look forward to seeing you all this summer.

How you doing Jeff,
So you have 10 contests on your schedule. I don't see your name pre-registered on mine.
Hope you can make it.

Mike,
I definately have yours on my calander. I like the three day contest, good call. I'll get pre-registered.

Jim,
I have the 300 together, flew it today for the first time. Eight flights. Nice plane, heavy though. I may run out of power in humid weather. I think it needs the 120.

Brandon,
I also remember you. Wyatt has had fun attempting to put that plane together.

Jeff

Good to hear from you Nick. I got forced into sportsman, so that's were I'll be. How about you, what are you flying in? You need to go to more than two contests. You got that big fancy camper, Mr. May as well putd it to good use. Your a good pilot too, need a little more practice time. Is your brother-in-law flying again this year also?

yea they come in alittle heavy. you should try the 26/12 prop, if you don't have access to one you could try mine and see how you like it. i have tuned pipes on mine just for the extra power.

Re: Thoughts of Summer

Jim,
Have you flown yours yet? If so, how is the power?
I've been out 3 times now, and I'm not saying I've been power limited yet, but in our first manuever I need all the power my DA 100 has.
My experience last year indicates to me that the engine will only produce less power with increasing temperature and especially humidity.

Nick,
You need to go to more than one more. What's up with that. You have to use the camper.

ive only flown mine 3 times so far. but i was limited by the low cloud ceiling. but the motor had plenty of power to get to it fast. im hopeing to fly it soon, but i am in the process of getting my grandmothers house fixed up and ready so sell and it's taking all my time right now. iv'e been missing alot of great flying days so far.
