Our December meeting called to order promptly by President Cal Branton with 33 members and guests in attendance.

Zach's son gave a presentation of the small scale gym flyers such as the Beechcraft Staggerwing with flaps & retracting gear.  Scott Anderson bought the little beauty from him and tried really hard NOT to fly it in the church!


Chris Grundemann & Shane Logue closely examine one of Zack's turbines.

Zack Geragi has jumped in and started an on-line hobby shop selling everything you might need. 

Targeting the giant scale and turbine flyer they have everything from Hysol epoxy to LinTon and AMT brand Turbines.

Roy Maynard’s, ¼ scale Bristol Fighter F2B

Roy's WW1 Design, drawn by David P. Andersen,  is a New ¼ Scale Design of an odd looking but unique aircraft.

The design uses new component materials and techniques, including leading edge CF-tube construction.  Fuse will break behind the cockpit for transport.

Roy's prototype will be powered by the DA85 with a Brison Custom Muffler.  We've included "Constr. Sheet #1" for your review.  Hopefully, Roy will make his design available to our global visitors once the Prototype has been test flown.
