Thumbs up Don's semi official day three photos Saturday at SEFF 2013 and the drive home Sunday

Time to start uploading Saturdays photos. I wandered around a lot taking pictures. The day was a bit windy but that sure didn't stop folks from flying!

Nice pics. Looks like a great time at a great location.

The 4th pic in post #4, is that a real jumbo or a model? Looks real but never know.

That was a foamie and KFC flew it in the demolition derby. It didn't last too long. Third image from the right in the middle row is the aftermath. I also have a video of it going in which I'll be posting soon.

Unfortunately all good things come to an end and we had to depart from Hodges field and SEFF 2013. It was a fantastic event and the Fayette Flyers club did an outstanding job putting on the event!

Weather reports called for rain setting in Saturday night so a lot of people packed up and headed out after the banquet Saturday night. We stayed until Sunday morning and Nick and I headed back to West Tennessee.

Now we're counting the days down to SEFF 2014!!

Don,
Do you happen to know the name and/or source of this model? It's in one of your SEFF pictures.

She's a winner for sure. I was hoping it was an ARF. Thanks

They are a nice flying plane, one of my slimer buddies flew one for years. Then one day he was a few feet off the ground flying inverted and dumb thumbed it in. Did a number on the plane.... or was that the one he flew through some trees....

Take care and thanks for posting at WattFlyer!!

I flew it Sun. and have it tweaked flying great now. I can see this being my favorite plane until the expiration date comes up.

The Sig Kougar is one of the best sport models of any genre (scratch-built, kit, ARF, whatever) to ever come down the pike. Built and balanced properly, it is totally honest and a pure flyer.

Here's one I built for grandson #1 12 or so years ago, with a 1988 vintage OS .40 SF. The kid- hell, he's a man now- has long since lost interest in the hobby, but I still fly it on occasion. It has been the only thing I had that would fit in my ride along with the big Extra (when I wanted to bring two models to the field).

Gramps, VERY nice job on yours. As you noted, this model is somewhat of a PITA to build... but the effort is worth it. Your thread almost...ALMOST... made me think about possibly converting mine. But I'm too new to e-power to even think about that sort of thing.

Hopefully, I'll maiden my new electric airplane (H9 Pulse 25E) tomorrow.

Thanks for the compliments I had to work out the CG it came out nose heavy. I added some wgt. to the tail and it is better. This winter I am going to reconfigure the battery compartment so I can slide the battery back, and loose the wgt. I added to the tail.

Good luck with your maiden flight tomorrow hope you have fair skies and no wind.
