Default MWE Spring Fling in San Diego, CA May5-7 2006

Hello everyone,

On behalf of the Silent Electric Flyers of San Diego, I wish to announce that the MWE Spring Fling is coming Cinco de Mayo Weekend, the 5th-7th of May 2006. There are more really great things in store for the MWE this year and I encourage all to come and fly! We will have 8 sponsored events with prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, along with the usual noon time demos and a lot of open flying.
Information is located on the 2006 MWE website. There you will find the schedule of events, rules for the various scheduled contests, registration information as well as accommodation ideas and driving directions (as these become available).

We look forward to seeing you!
-Pedro Brantuas,
SEFSD

AWESOME EVENT!

Weather on day one sucked, day two slightly better, day three wonderful sunny San Diego!


I can only tell you how I did, I have not seen the remaing results:

Open Scale: FIRST PLACE with my F4-U Corsair

Small Scale: FIRST PLACE with my F-18 EDF

Limbo Challenge: 3rd Place with my AIRFOILZ YAK

Spot Landing: 3rd Place with my AIRFOILZ YAK

Freestyle: 5th Place with my AIRFOILZ YAK

I would have placed better in freestyle if Jordan King (another Airfoilz sponsored pilot) had not TAKEN US ALL TO SCHOOL during his freestyle routine that included CRASHING and BREAKING the airplane, and RETURNING to the air in round #2! A true testament for the AIRFOILZ YAK! It breaks in half, and KEEPS ON FLYING!!! I was right behind Jordan when he broke it hitting the gound, and told him to keep flying... the crowd went wild!! It was flip-flopping around like a wounded bird... he kept it aloft for another minute or so, just enough to get the reaction he needed.

I got to thank my sponsors Airfoilz, Radio Control Specialties, Nitro Blast, Polk Hobbies, and 3Dx Hobbies.


EXTRA THANKS to Paul G at Airfoilz. I literally did not have a flyable AirfoilZ Yak on Wednesday, and he overnighted me the stuff I needed to have it flight ready for Friday AM. THATS THE KIND OF SERVICE HE GIVES. 100% for the guys that buy and fly that awesome AIRFOILZ YAK.
I can only guess how I would have done if I had been able to fly the plane BEFORE competing! Next time, I'll have it dialed in the way I really like it.
My AirfoilZ YAK is outfited with:
Hyperion 2213-12 outrunner
Hyperion TRITON 20 amp controller
Hitec 555 Rx/w HiTec HS-55 Servos
Kokham 3s 1250 Li-Po
APC 10x6 Slow prop

I'll post more about the event, but I'm thrilled I did as good as I did, the Scale victories were completely unexpected. I was hoping just to have a solid performance, not be in contention for the podium, let alone sweep the scale catagories!
