Friday fun at the RDR/C field

Good morning Tom. The video was fun to watch. By the way, I was at the field Fri. hot, hot. And, since I have been working from home since March, I did much building. Two new ones at the field. Keep well and fly safe.

Anderson Pylon reconditioned

Following last week's first place finish in Ft. Wayne, it was decided that the Anderson could be completely covered over with Ultracote Lite.   Previously, we were continuously adding Thermalspan patches.  It was originally built by Canada's Chuck Schooley in the early nineties.
