Great turn-out at Athens, PA Lynch Bustin Gym on Tuesday 1/11/2011. 20 flyers braved the snowy evening with many traveling from the Vestal, NY area. Yes, I said 20 ! We had a clue when there were 13 at the Debriefing Session at Alliger’s House of Wings at 6pm. Maybe we can get Alliger’s to sponsor some of the gym rental costs next year.
New plane of the evening was the Horizon UMX Extra 300 foamy. 4 started flying at 7 and by 9 there were 3-1/2 still flying. Yes, I said 3-1/2 FLYING ! The 300 looks like a winner in the Indoor Arena.
Other big foamys – aka beasts but not The Beast, as well as one The Beast, other Horizon and Tower BNF types of planes and heli’s and of course foamy copy’s using hardware from retired BNF stuff filled the indoor sky. Sometimes 7 at a time and the gym isn’t that big.
Shay, DLuchaco, SLuchaco,Spencer, Vandermeulen, Zaleski, Champion, Mahonski, Minier from Valley R/C, Hoffman & Tyler from Da MOB, Daren Scherer from Jin’s R/C & GJ’s, as in the Owner, Quinn, Terrinore, Shugard,FGioffredo, DGioffredo from AGS and Hendrick, Carr, Struck from Indoor Flyers INC were there. Did I mention a total of 20 flyers ? Was your name listed ? ALWAYS ROOM FOR MORE !
Matt Struck got the only ovation of the evening for flying Daren S’s new but slightly abused UMX Extra 150 after it had a midair with a much larger bipe. (bipe owner paid me off to forget his name)(again)(it WASN’T Larry C)(this time)
Since some had left by the flight it is included in the pics. Matt flew it well proving knife-edge is not just a maneuver, it’s a flight mode when one wing half is MIA. Check out the pics of the evenings fun.
We can only imagine what will happen next to top 1/11/2011 Indoor Flying with Valley R/C. Be there on January 25 to find out
