“Hey Jack. I have not had an Indoor mid-air since March 2013 !” Ask Vinny about it – he was there.
It is almost time to start the Valley R/C Indoor Flying Sessions. Fifteen days and counting to Session #1 on Tuesday – October 8. Eleven sessions are scheduled thru March 2014. 2nd & 4th Tuesdays except for December (only one session Dec. 10). Last session is on Saturday afternoon March 29.
    This first session is a good time to bring things to sell. Anyone want to buy an MCX Heli ?
    Of course outdoor flying is still happening too. Wednesday evenings & weekends at Round Top Park if Mother Nature co-operates.
