More Shots from the Field….

Our new E-flite Cessna 150 Aerobat, 85″ span, 4-6S battery pack , so far we are getting four 6 minute flights on a 5000mAh battery leaving 30% !  It has SAFE AS3X gyro system in the receiver making it extremely stable.  Flaps make it super slow on landing.  And the light system makes it super realistic!

Here’s a video of Dylan landing at Dusk:

5th Prairie Dog Classic Pattern Contest
August 19. 2017

The 5th Prairie Dog Classic was a resounding success. We had a low number pilots turn out for the event, just 6. There are a number of reasons for the low turnout, it s a VERY busy time of year. Some people had to work, some got sick, some could not travel etc.  I heard many times, “Thank you for having the contest”.

We were able to fly 5 rounds of the contest in one day on Saturday. We had nearly perfect weather as well. There was enough of a breeze that it was not blazing hot and it was challenging for the pilots, but not enough wind to make conditions really bad. We had blue skies with big fluffy clouds dancing their way across the sky.

A very special thanks to some non members that came out to help and did a bit of judging for the contest:

Thank you to all the MAS member volunteers that came out to help! The pattern contest, especially one this small, pretty much runs itself and does not need a lot of people to support it. We had a VERY nice turnout of MAS members, but unfortunately, there was not a lot for them to do once we got set up and rolling.

Thank You to:
Lee Overholt
Bob Salmon
Herb Verona

And a huge thanks to Larry Ott! Without Larry this contest would not have come off. He also pitched and did judging when necessary!

The club made a little money, and the pilots that came had a great time. I call that a successful day. No airplanes were hurt or lost in the making of this contest.

Again thanks to all!

Lamar Steen Commemorative IMAC Challenge 2016 Photos

Another year of the Lamar Steen IMAC Challenge took place  July 9th and 10th, at MAS Airfield.  There was a descent showing of pilots to compete in Basic, Sportsman, Advanced, and Unlimited classes.  Three rounds were flown Saturday, with an additional two on Sunday.

As you can see, the weather was great, albeit hot, with not too much wind.  Thanks to all the club volunteers who helped make it possible, and to George Kerr and Larry Ott for their organizing and running the event!  See you next year!
