Hi Mike,

Scale is DEFINITELY welcome! Peter Wales and Darrel Sprayberry are coming with their beautiful turbine scale helis so if you are into scale you will not want to miss them. We will have a scale only flight station also. Our setup is going to be similar to how its done at IRCHA, (just no where near as many flight stations... they have 15!), and their will be plenty of elbow room for the 3d guys also.

I know a bunch of guys from Miami are coming up also, dont know if you know them or not. Hope to see you there!

Will there be any Radical 30 owners coming to this event? I have one but I am having a b*tch of a time dial indicating the fan hub on the motor, and I would appreciate some tips/advice/help.

Went today... Was AWESOME!!!! Lots of wind, but Bert showing up was a super plus... I blew my motor on my fusion, but left with a huge smile on my face. I had a great time and I hope they do it again next year...Nothing like a great bunch of people just wanting to fly and have a great time... Thanks sundancers....

Thanks everyone for coming out to our new field in Port Saint Lucie! Putting the hurricane force winds aside... it all went smooth and Saturday we had a very good turnout. Tunes were rockin, food was grillin', helis were Smackin'! I'll post a vid of Bert's flight during the week. Mike Forton blew us off but its great to see a pro like Bert Kammerer support a local club field. We will definitely do it again next year. A lot of kids and pilots were having fun with the sim on the big screen so I will bring that out next year. Our local hobby shops also threw down some good stuf for the prize table.

Pictures will be posted after the camera guy gives me a disc, (next weekend?)

Anyone going to the Orlando Blowout??? If so I'll see you there! Anyone on FB send me a friend req so I can let you know when our next event comes up.

We were there Saturday. What a really nice place to fly and really nice people. The runway is perfect for heli's or planes. My little girl really enjoyed the flight sim you guys had set up. I think that is great to see.
we will be back next year to fly again. Thanks again to the sundancer club for putting on a great event.

The club enjoyed hosting this event, everyone had a great time despite the winds. We can't wait to put this together next year.

I had a great time, beautiful field. I liked the circles for each flight station. There certainly was no shortage of wind to play in! Thanks for hosting the event! Andy

Hi John,

We had a guy from the club taking a bunch of pics but I'm not sure if he was taping also. I'll do my best to find out and get right back to ya. I taped the scale Augusta and Berts flight only. I was so busy with the CD stuff I never got as much time to film as I originally thought I would.

Now that i think about it... there was some film guy there with a killer camera and a tripod but I have no clue who he was. He showed up when the local newspaper guy did so I thought they were together but apparantly not. I'll research it and get back to you either way.

Whos going to Orlando for the Blow out?/?

I know you were busy.. MC Todd! The guy with the tripod is the one I am referring to. I am definetly going to Orlando!!!!!!!! I cant wait... I just hope the weather and the winds holds off. I went flying today with snjbird in Daytona, and in the morning it was calm. In the afternoon when we finally got to the field it was whipping!!! I guess its that time of the year again... At least we don't have to deal with the white stuff....I would rather deal with wind any day!
Thanks again Todd, for all of the hospitality of the sundancers club. I had a great time and cant wait till next year... I will be filling out an app soon for your club. So I can come down and fly with you guy's...

All the photos are now uploaded and available on the Sundancer Website.

@ john, I believe the videographer is the owner/operator of On Air RC. Hope that helps.
