Family Picnic and Westerville NASA Scale

Thank you to everyone that came out to share in the  good time today at the family picnic. The food was far better than burgers and dogs- especially the dishes brought by members. We were also honored by the presence of our friend from DCAMA, who came all the way out from Greenville to share in our celebration.
Mmmm. Pulled pork, slaw, beans, potato and pasta salad, fruit, chips and dip, cup cakes...there goes the diet.

The weather was beautiful- sunny, warm, but the wind wasn't exactly cooperating with our flight plans. The intermittent gusts were changing direction unpredictably, causing turbulence and tricky flying. HA! We didn't let that stop us- helicopters, nitro planes, and even an electric warbird took to the air. Of course, it wouldn't be an MRFA event without combat wings!

On Saturday, Dick, Bill, and Rob went out to the Westerville club at Alum Creek to see the planes at the NASA scale competition.There were some outstanding models at the event, Including a Jenny with an electric starter (NEAT!), a P-61 Black Widow, a beautiful shiny Beechcraft C-45, and a big P-38 Lightning.

MRFA is considering hosting air races next summer. This would be an amateur, non-sanctioned event open to the general public. The plan is to have classes from stock electric warbirds to modified glow and gas planes, divided into speed brackets by qualifying speeds.

Want to see or participate in RACING? Then we need to know that there is enough interest to justify the effort in setting up these events. PLEASE help us by filling out this anonymous survey: Event Survey
Thanks For Your Help!
