There is no conflict of interest. The more people that are flying the more fun we will all have. Fly at the Unclub, fly at the Bald Eagle, or fly at both. The choice is yours.

I don't see any conflict of interest here. There's no reason why people can't fly at either or both clubs. Heck I fly at several clubs both AMA and non AMA. It just makes the hobby that much better. More people to meet, more friends to make and more of my planes to get trashed.

Speaking of WOOF, is the Fall WOOF going to be at Bald Eagle?

Cool! I'll mark my calander. Maybe it won't be 100 degrees out. Or even worse mid 20s. At least they have a place to go in and warm up. I'm sure you'll have hot chocolate for all the Wattheads too?

LOL I've seen pics of Jeff and you are right he is pretty scary lookin'. Maybe we could talk him into wearing a paper sack over his head or something.

I think you will be alright as long as you don't say BOO! or anything crazy like that.

It doesn't matter who started the thread.
The Unclub was at 41st and Garnett before 1969? Wow.......that IS a long time.

Brett just may be up to that I may cut out and glue some up myself for a couple guys if they bring a motor, esc, and rx they can get in on the fun. Anyway it sounds great to me, I'll be there. But, will not be at the Unclub field this Saturday gotta drive a Uhaul for my son and daughter in law. Though I am still trying to figure out how I can get a couple flights in that morning.

I ain't touching the rest of the bull(censored)stuff that's been goin' on here.... BUT... I *will* say this.. TIMEX FLIES AGAIN!
I finally took her out this morning and after a little trimming in she flew like the old Timex... I also downloaded the latest firmware update for my FlyCamOne2's. That seemed to fix that old problem of the audio/video sync! Sure was glad to get that fixed...

Anyone out there running FlyCamOne2's.. go get the 4.01 firmware update.... It's a good one.
http://www.flycamone2.com/index.php?id=20&L=3

I also stuck a nice Millennium RC "X-gear" landing gear on it. That sure made Timex a bit sturdier for taking off and landing too! Here's my second test flight after the "post crash" re-build... after I got the trims set...

I have thought about bringing a few extra combat planes to give away but sometimes it feels like all I can do to keep 2 planes ready to fly. I still haven't flown my Ugly Stik this summer .

Glad Timex is up again, I like the looks of that X gear from Millennium. I will be there Saturday morning gonna drop the uhaul off at the kids, but I have to go pick up a couple guys to load at 8:30am so I'll be there at 6:30 - 7:00am. Flying was good last night, took the Radian out and flew a 1250 pack through her. Sure is a sweet flyer, as for all that other )^*%&** thats been going on can"t we all just get along and fly and have fun. As has been said that is what it's all supposed to be about anyway. Having fun and inviting new people to join us, and hey if we can convert a few slimers along the way thats even better. Help cut down on the noise pollution in the world.

I'm working on a new F&F in between breaking blades on my CX2 . I have shortened the wing by 4 inches and I am going to run 2-5 gram servos for the ailerons. Hopefully it will give me the roll rate I am looking for.
