Find the main gate by the sign above, tell the guard you are going to watch the indoor model planes, and ask how to get to the gym, make a left on W. Ellsworth st. go till it stops, look for the gym photo below.  Go through doors in front of the weight room (center of photo), walk to the end of the hall then make a left then right and you are in the gym.

Tom, you did it! the "Can Heat" flies!

Air to air crash, on the pop machine.

Pictures from the first fly day of March.

Tom's one good flight with this C02 bi-plane.

Pictures form the March 25, 2001 fly day.

Photos taken by Allen that day.


Here is my scale plane for "now", will be a spring flying... So I was wrong.

You have to watch for firefly's.

It fly's

Tom says this one will fly all day.

Tom and his outdoor now indoor bi-plane.

This is how your tiny's CF prop should not look!

Here is my new (all carbon) indoor flyer, it has ~320 sq inches and weights 124 grams.  It is powered by a 1717 with a Wes-tech 11 inch prop also "Thanks to Tom, for use of his digital camera for this image."

My new indoor/outdoor bi-plane with the 5 cell pack and GWS receiver weights in at 84 grams. It's powered by an DC5-2.4 Geared 8.3/1 and a 10 inch Wes-tech prop with ~272 sq inches.

With the 7 cell pack it will do tricks! and that's what I like.  With the 5 cell pack you need to build up a little speed before tricks can happen.
