Oh Yeah!

Trailer, new mud boots, sombrero or such, and who knows what flying machines...really want some new blood mixed in with the old standards this time!

As last year, for brother Kim and ANY other CEF member, I will try desperately to make this event... I am super bummed that I did all the planning, down to deposit on MOtel, and had to bail for family reasons..last year.... Hopefully.... life is kinder to me this year coming...

KIM, and any other CEF members...my offer of free room n board is still open at my micro ranch...However at about the two week mark I will ask you to move on to the next CEF member....grin...no sarcasm...

Post  xplaneguy on Tue Mar 14, 2017 8:45 pm

So...I just made arrangements with the manager of the Days Inn at Little Rock Airport for a special rate of $45 a night. A $10 a night savings from last year. Call 501-481-3827 and mention you'll be attending the "Model Airplane Event" to receive the rate.

Also...I rolled the dice and booked airline, rental car and Days Inn reservations to attend SMALL 2017, since next year will likely be a "no go" with my daughter graduating High School. She will not be attending this year and will stay with either a school friend or a neighbor. I hope it all works out? Smile

Not planning to ship any planes but may stuff a few in a small suitcase. Wink

SHUT---DE---DOA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Had to read it a couple times, but my dense, redneck brain finally registered your post !!!!!!

So...you're gonna be there???!!! Don't tease me bro!

But seriously, more or less, if you would like to ship some planes with a looser schedule (not that Steve's not capable of the same thing), I'll be happy to hangar them in my camper and haul'm down to Valhalla!

Well now...reckon I gotta actually work on some stuff...

Yes sir, reservations are made and doing everything possible not to miss this year's gathering! Heck, I couldn't let you have all the fun without being there to witness it all in person. Smile

Thanks Kim! I appreciate your offer to store and haul my toys. With some uncertainty involved in attending, I'll just bring a few in a spare suitcase. I spoke with Steve last night and stated that he'll have plenty of models for me to fly. Bottomline: I'll just be tickled to attend and hang with you and the crew. Smile

Also, Troy Black (Tee Bee) has confirmed he'll be attending this year, so Cox powered models will be well represented again this year. Smile

Fingers crossed for great weather, safe travels for all and hopefully my return to the "coolest" model aviation event in the country. Wink

Best,
Lone Ranger Tony

Figured so on the models....heck, you could probably just show up and STILL log tons of flying from the guys wanting you to utilize your 'Test Pilot' skills alone.

Great to hear this!

I also intend to haul a bunch of the 'Storage Locker Orphans' to S.M.A.L.L. and adopt them out. The storage shed is bulging at the seams and I've got yet another estate situation from the son of one my best buds ever who passed 3 years ago.

Hey Fred! It's good to hear from you.

I wish I could bring the A-10 but it's just not possible, though the production models will be available around late April or early May. I hope you get one and bring it. Smile

All the best,
Tony

Post  fredvon4 on Sat Mar 18, 2017 9:49 am

Kim...brother Tony has a lot of time on RC groups discussing a couple of newer A-10s being offer by at least two companies

This is one of the threads....there are several others

Tony got his hands on one of the prototype airplanes and his daughter did a LOT of superb video of him at play

I don't know how it happened but I'm a Test, Evaluation and Demo Pilot for Motion RC. Please pray for that company. Very Happy

All kidding aside, as a long time customer, I'm now getting to test and evaluate prototypes months before the company begins production, to discover any potential design or hardware issues. I've been flying the Freewing Twin 80mm A-10 since December and the model is now in production.

Kim - I'm planning to bring back the red Barn Swallow this year. Smile

Just big kids gathering in the heart of Arkansas for a week of fun and fellowship. I just wish it occurred twice a year. Smile

Ditto That ! A guy could totally go to this thing with nothing to fly and STILL be entertained by the personalities and general hooting going on. Of course, the non-run-of-the-mill flying machines are a plus too!

Great photos Kim!

If you didn't know already, Col. Dave Graben passed away on 1 Jan 2017. This video/flight below was dedicated to our dear friend and an American Hero, David S. "Dave" Graben, Col., USAF Ret, who passed away Jan 1, 2017. On 14 August 1964, Lieutenant Dave Graben's F-105D was chewed up by flak over Laos. Graben made it back to Korat and landed safely, but his aircraft had to be written off. It was the first Thunderchief to be lost to enemy action. Dave was an amazing human being and a passionate aviator who always inspired others. He lived the life of ten men, as a member of the greatest generation.

Tribute flight for Col. Graben:
