Aahh, too bad the video doesn’t work!!  That’s the SR-71 I posted a picture of awhile back. Paul had not responded to my PM question of if he was building it for your contest or not. Turns out he was doing it just for for fun at the regionals. ....Still, he could be a late entry to the Run what ya brung contest..Hint, Hint, Nudge, Nudge.. Cool

Ps: Man, there is a boatload of really cool planes pictured in that article!!

Yea.. Thumbs Up Why not? There's a LOT to see in the Flying Lines link that Phred posted.. including close-up photos of both Paul's and Orin's SR71's. Peruse the gallery when you have some spare time. The photos are terrific!

The man (Chris Cox) who shot the vid of Paul G.'s SR71 flight.. also won the Concours d'Elegance award for C/L Stunt with his Hellcat.

Thinking Hoping Ken Cook , Rusty , kim, Ron C, all our overseas friends (too many for the title)

Post  fredvon4 on Tue Jun 11, 2019 12:53 pm

As I am no longer able to play with these toys I am fascinated by the various events all over the world that relate to RC/FF/CL/Scale

Often lamented that Control Line is dying.....Hummm I wonder

Ken Cook, son, and crowd ---frequently post their events and members planes...mostly to Face Booger...No sweat, I Have a presence on that abomination....point is ----as they slowly die off---- their is still a core cadre that build and fly some amazing things....I mean one guy has a giant control line mode a small child could be a passenger in...IT IS HUGE!!!

But recently Ken has mention more than once the dying off is taking a toll on participation....UP side IF any are paying attention....last 90 days...Jacob what is the tally of NEW first time members?...a LOT IMO

Flying lines does a real good job of highlighting the Pacific Northwest mostly coastal clubs and events.....They too have a ever decreasing cadre of members with many starting to liquidate their staches.... seems around 75 to 82 years old it becomes time to clean out a 35x65 workshop shed

Dan McEntee, central 'merica  Tulsa, Dallas, Florida, NewJersy, Of course the Carolina's... and many many I am forgetting like San Diego to Napa/Davis California....entire Bay area in fact

Point is there still is a LOT of Control Line flying.....

So sad to hear Brodak's 2019 may be the last year...

We heard this several years back...I know John's health is a primary driver of this sad fact...so I hope the crowd down Rusty's way pick up the flag like they were prepared to do a few years ago and Host a Memorial Brodak Fun Fly at Huntersville every year

Sorry for the ramble but it just struck me as inspiring to Play SMALL Ya All with Kim--- and our friends at Joe Nall , and the PNW regionals with Paul Gibeault .......ON Stunt Hangar we are privileged to see video and photos from all sorts of other venues....

Jest sayin...still a lot of old farts having fun and infecting kids like Samuel Mike Lonkey's son

Phred.. I hear ya' and love ya' brother. "Honestly"... this hobby has kept me sane.. in an otherwise insane-world over the past 30+ years. I've been making contacts; local and global.. to assure that I have a steady diet of aero-modelling "BSEG" material for years to come. I'll "seek you out" down there in Lampasas someday. I have childhood friends who's family moved from Corpus Christi, TX to my hometown of Franklin, MA in 1965.. (I was 5 years old..) right across the street.. in a "RFD"/industrial-zoned neighborhood. They're all back in TX now.. (since the late 1970's/their parents long-since passed-away).. but I will make an attempt to visit all of my TX friends someday. It's on my "bucket-list".

Dang + 2. I don't do Facebook so I'm missing Paul's SR-71 flight, is there another avenue?

What a bunch of beautiful models, I went through them all. Paul Walkers electric is simply smashing. Wicked as they might say in NH.

Thanks for the link.

Post  Ken Cook Today at 7:50 am

There was plans for a 1/2A ME-163 Komet in a older American Modeller that has a tube in the rear that suspiciously holds a D Estes engine. Nothing in the plans explain what this is. That's a lot of power for a small plane, I feel it would just pitch up and cartwheel.
