I will try to keep this
up the best I can. Time does not allow doing
everything I would like. We will be putting
recent field news and photos on this page. I
apologize for any errors I may make and will correct them if
you notify me. If you have any news, email me at email@example.com Thanks, RonJ
Vic and Family meet the "Amigos" at the
Field for a Family Flyin!
August 5-6, 2006
After a long hot spell, several of the members came out to
the field to fly this weekend. Many thanks to Dave K.
who came out early on Saturday and mowed the field
himself!!(Steve is on vacation). We had so much fun! I
put some new photos of the flying Sunday on the site. If you
haven't seen them, follow this LINK.
Having been gone a lot this summer, I've got to sharpen up before
the Fun Fly in September, lest you see what a poor flyer I am!
Hope to see you all out there this week or soon.
The Field is in good shape and ready for
flying! The field has been mowed a couple of times
and rolled at least once. Many thanks to Steve S and Dave K
for their work. The port-a-potty is installed and may be
opened by the standard gate key. The flight channel pin box is
opened by the combination lock. The combination is the lowest
channel and the highest channel we use in flight RC.
Lenny and I were out Sunday April 30, and flew his
"TameCat" plane. The plane flew well, as most of Lenny's
planes do, but may need slightly more power. Dave K and Alan
were out and flew their favorite warbirds. Dave K brought out
a trainer plane that he rescued from the trash of a neighbor.
He finished the framed plane and covered it beautifully. Lenny
and I began chanting from our peanut gallery, "We want to see the
trainer fly!". So Dave wowed us by flying the plane, screaming
across the runway at 4ft as fast as the bird could go. Go Dave
Go! You're the Man!
Ben H has started flying with me. He made his
first flight in a while last week. He is getting his plane in
shape and will be boning up on the RealFlight flight simulator.
Bill K and Leroy were out last week and despite wind
conditions made several good flights. Both are excellent
flyers and are worth watching!
Hope to see you out there soon!

Dave K, the club chief chef prepared the meal and
members enjoyed his cooking again. Many thanks to Dave and to
the several members that attended and gave great demonstrations of
good flying!. I will give more details as soon as possibly,
hopefully today Monday the 19th.
As you can see by the photo of Max's Plane below, the
field is very dry. We will probably get some rain in
September. But the field is still in good flying shape.
Lenny and I have been really enjoying going out there
together. I was out one day with my "U-Can-Do 3D"(or in my
case U-Can't-Do 3D) and was lucky enough to see Bob C and Bill K out
there. Bill had a "U-Can-Do 3D just like mine and by watching
him and turning down my throws a lot, was able to get the U-Can-Do
3D under control a little. It is a hand full to handle with
too much throws in. I have only flown the plane 4 times.
September 9 It was good to see
Max at the field Friday September 9 and
brought his Taube. If you've not seen this plane, you are
missing a treat. This little beauty features fabric covering
and a great sounding FS engine. I've said before that a plane
this good looking does not even need to fly, but in fact this plane
does fly good and is very scale looking when flying.

Note: Thanks to Vic, we have a very
nice bulletin board with a nice calendar! See the "WebMaster" Page for more
8-26-05:Club Flyer Attacks tree with
Cessna... Tree Won...or did
Photos by Aubrey
As shown by the above pictures, flyer Lenny had another
confrontation with the club trees. The Cessna became securely
lodged in branches approximately 40ft high in the
tree. We were completely baffled as how to get plane down and
had written the beautifully flying Cessna off. Suddenly up
drove two delightful young men with a utility truck, and seeing
our dilemma, proceeded to get a ladder from their truck and
climb the tree. After climbing another 16ft above ladder, the young
man in white protective suit started down with plane, but was having
difficulty climbing down tree with only one free hand. Lenny
asked him to just drop it, fearing the young man might fall, but the
man refused. Whereupon, Eddie S. climbed to the top of ladder,
and was able to grab the plane and bring it down.
Amazingly, the bird suffered only minor dents and
cuts. Even more wonderful, after examining the plane and
deciding it still airworthy, Lenny started the plane, took it off
and made a Good Landing!! And in all the
excitement, we never even got the two fellows' names. Lenny
tried desperately to reward them but they refused. It is
so refreshing, that in this day and age when people don't seem to
care much about each other, that two strangers would stop and help a
couple of senior citizens in their desperate need. May the God
of all flying fields bless them with happiness and success all the
rest of their days. And many thanks to Eddie. Without
his efforts, the Cessna probably would not have survived.
Weather permitting the beautiful bird will be at the field on
Monday! P.S. Note.. and It
So good to see
Eddie at the field again! He has been laid up for a couple
months with a broken foot.
Welcome back Eddie and thanks so much for your help!
Here is Victor with his beautiful Cessna. I have said
before, a plane that looks this good does not even have to fly, but
I watched Vic fly this one, and it flies great!
Lenny holds his favorite Cessna after a recent
unplanned landing atop a 30 ft tree. You can't keep a good man
(or plane) down!
The Most exciting news this month is the return of Roger
B to the flying field! After
a very difficult late winter and spring, Roger visited the
field on "Gray Eagles" day (Thursday's) a couple of
times visiting with some of the guys there. Then on
Sunday July the 31th Roger brought a plane
and flew, much to the delight of fellow members!
New member, Pat M. has been
learning to fly late Sunday afternoons, and on August 6th, made his
first landings! Good Job Pat.!
Lenny & Ron J have successfully flown their project
plane with extra wing. the plane flies very well on both
wings. The fabric covering is great. Plane flies true and is
considerably acrobatic on the semi-symmetrical wing.
K is submitting his favorite Twin for publication in a future issue
of Model Airplane News. Yea Dave! Click on image to
see a picture of his latest screamer the Sukhoi. A
special thanks to Dave for fixing the latest
gate lock damage done by others. (not our
