Fierce competition, Nats judges, FAI Judges, and modelers making new
friendships and renewing old ones. lots of pranks as always and we

This years Texas trip was the best yet with some
real surprises! ......
Al Rabe brought the Critical Mass and we captured many flights on
video. This is one special ship; we got detail shots of every part,
flights, cowl off shots, even 150 photos from a photo shot by the
Bill Rutherford buzzed us with his RV 6, some exciting footage as
you can imagine. We got Bill's new RV 6 model on the tapes, itís an
exact copy of his full size homebuilt, very cool indeed.
Rich Oliver showed off his new 90 RoJett stunt motor, as of now
still in the development stages but coming in the near future. His
new ARF was absolutely unbelievable. I got a gallon of fuel thru it
myself as did several others, its staggeringly good and only
89.95!!!!!!!!!!! All the details of this and several other ARFís are
on the set of tapes.
This was our third Texas trip, this year Bill Rutherford arranged
for us to see a privately owned Spitfire and it was amazing, itís
the cleanest restoration I have ever seen almost totally
remanufactured. This alone was worth the trip!
Steve Moon showed off his newest Saturn, great performer with an OS
52 4 stroke. Frank Williams showed us his Katana ARF, another eye
opener for sure.
We shot action at the field and Dub Jet's shop and Rich Oliver showed
us his method of tuning carbon props among other tech things but the
best time was the party Rich and Edie Oliver put on at their house
for the stunt pilots. We even painted Dale Gleasonís handle to match
my Ferrari handle and showed how we setup our fuel pump system now
in use on the Testarossa.
