Welcome to WattFlyer Chuck! Where are you from?
Yes, anything can fly at the Dust Bowl, planes, heli's, jets, and this year we may even have a place to fly indoors at night. (electric only indoors)
I fly only electric. I would say this event is 60% electric, and 40% fuel.
Most of the pilots, even the ones, that fly the big gas planes have one or two electric type park flyers.
Here is a link to some of last years photo's.

See you at the Dust Bowl!

I just got an email from my cousin Will Arnett. He does video production. He IS interested in doing professional video of the event.
The plan would be to have interviews etc like you would see on a newscast. And of course footage of the flying and models on display etc. Then have these for sale on dvd to help raise more $$ for MS.

He is looking into working out the scheduling now.

This in NO way would interfere with our regular still photographer David. Who has been doing a great job.

Default Flight Sim.

For the last two Fly Ins I have wanted to have a Flight sim up and running at the Fly In.
For various reasons that has not really worked out so well.
So I am going to put out a request. I want to try and have a permanent set up that will be used at all the Fly Ins and also have on hand for visitors to our field who would like to try out rc.

I cannot afford to buy one myself. So if a person or business would like to donate anything to help get this together it would be vary much appreciated!
Ideally we can end up with a transmitter type interface and a laptop to run it on.
If a business would be able to help us out their logo along with contact info can be on the lid of the laptop as well as the screen saver and desktop of the computer.

I want to stress this is NOT for me. But for the Fly In and events we hold at the airport.

I will take it out of the box and check for damage. And take some pictures of what's inside.
It can go .60 to .90 glow and of course E-Power!
I would say it is a great start! Makes me look forward to see what all else is donated!

Ok, I contacted over 200 shops, and R/C related businesses this weekend, that makes a total of 260. We should see some results in the next few weeks.
I'll send out another email to all of them in June, then a last ditch effort the first of August.
Of course if any of you pilots would like to donate anything, please do. We have lots of great builders out there, or if you just have anything that you are not flying or using anymore.
Thanks for your help.
I did get a $40 gift certificate today from B&E graphics.
We are on our way to a great event.

Thanks Tom! I hope to get good results, and raise a lot of money for MS.

But I have to confess, I'm really just selfish, and want to get a lot of good stuff, so I can win them all.

Same here Wes. I won a coupon for 40% off 2 Dogrc and gave it away to a good guy that I knew would use it.

Really the main thing for me is the cause. And of course meeting new friends and seeing friends I already know.
And the planes are certainly cool!

As much as I would love to win something cool I likely won't be able to fly for a whole lot longer so other things are more important.

Thanks Tom,
Brett has sure made a HUGE difference this year already too.
I am hoping this will become a long term permanent event.
This is year 3 so we have a start at least.
