Thumbs up SEFF 2013 Videos

Here's a few videos that were posted on You Tube. This first one is the Saturday Foamie Demolition Derby. About half way through KFC flew his giant foamie airliner into the middle of the pack with predictable results.

Take care and thanks for posting at WattFlyer!!

The official semi official Wattflyer video of the world renowned FMP or Five Man Plane. Five guys were flying the thing, one person per control channel. FiremanBill provided me with the following information about the thing:

Laine Stahr - Cobra Commander, A/C designer, builder, and Elevator Control
Bill Sorrell - Ailerons
Mason Sorrell - Rudder
Michael "Crash" Hancock - throttle
Tim King - Bomb drop
Joel Dirnberger - Ground crew
Barry Strickland - Announcer
Kristy Stahr - Good luck charm

How does Laine come up with any idea??? He just got a wild hare and said "hey I've got an idea"!
Laine Stahr does come up with some interesting ideas! Here's the link to the FMP Video:

Great Job, Andrew. Enjoyed the slide show. You were even able to get the "star of the show" in at the 4m23sec mark. Can't wait till next year. See you there!

Nick nice job with the video and good timing on posting it up. I was thinking of SEFF 2014 today, and if I can make it next year. Funny you can hear the siren on Bills plane near the end of the flight that was a cool addition to his Cuda.
I miss my Cuda had a servo go on it never got back to the field the swamp was fed another plane this summer.

I really like this video of Joe Smith doing some night time flying at SEFF pond this year with his big 103" Extra. What's even better is his mom is filming the video and you can hear her moaning in the background as he pushes the plane ever so closer towards the water.

I remember watching him fly that night and wishing I had his skills he was so low rolling over that pond it was a sight to see.
Wasn't that the night we had that spectacular moon rise?

Ah how long is it to SEFF?

Brings a smile to my face when I see pic's like these. Started talking to a guy about SEFF at a auction today by the time I was done he couldn't wait to look it up and go next year.
