    I swear I didn't see another plane the whole time I was flying those circles I'm just happy I finished all the laps and I'm happy to concede second place. I'm looking forward to seeing any video you've got! I'm kicking myself for not bringing my camera out too.

    That was only the third flight on the airframe and, as it turns out, she was still out of trim a bit. That was as close as I wanted to fly her to us. I got a great flight in on her on Sunday morning and she is REALLY dialed in now. I've got a Graphine pack on order for her and I'm looking forward to terrorizing the local flying field the rest of this summer

    Thanks again to Joshua for spearheading this. I know I plan to build a few more of these golden era racers as time allows. There were a lot of great designs!

    Awesome! Yeah... I needed to tighten up those circles :-) They sure felt smaller out there!

    I hesitate to agree with you for the fact that though I was there spotting and cheering for BridgeInspector, my eyes gravitated to your plane, perhaps due to the bright colors or, what I think is likely, your style of flying.

    I wouldn't want to rig a race for any particular flyer but I think it would make for an exciting race if the race course brought out more exciting aspect of all the flyers. I'm thinking a mixture of twisties and straight-aways. Of course this will require a way to mark the corners.

    All the racers built exciting aircraft to see up close and to watch fly. What a time I had for a first Flite Fest!
    Truths in life:
    1) Everything that happens happens for a reason. Luck does not exist.
    2) In this existence we are part of the problem or part of the solution. The choice is ours.
    3) We aren't defined by our circumstances but by our reactions to them. Crisis reveals character.
