Re: AMA EXPO WEST 2019

Here's a link to a clip of the Black Sheep booth at the EXPO, before the show opened, which I post anyway even though Dave caught me at about the most unflattering moment possible.

Re: AMA EXPO WEST 2019

Maybe I made it sound more dismal than it actually was. When there were people at the show we had a lot of fun. The problem was that there crowds were not anywhere near what the were in previous years. We had vigorous discussion about what caused this and there were many reasons pointed out, but mos...

Re: Indoor Flying with the O.F.F.C.

Well, obviously, we didn't get the webcam to work inside the exhibit hall. The AMA EXPO was very disappointing. Attendance was so low that the AMA decided not to hold it again. Most of the pictures are of the Black Sheep Exhibition Squadron booth and were taken before the show opened. At one end of ...

Re: Indoor Flying with the O.F.F.C.

The O.F.F.C. NoCal contest for 2019 happened on October 30. Unfortunately, there were a few astonished, "The contest is today?" remarks at the meeting and there were only 4 entries. The four of us that did fly had a lot of fun. Now. Pete Basone and I were trimming models we expect to fly i...

Re: AMA EXPO WEST 2019

Some of the members are setting up a web cam in the booth. If it works I will post where you can access the "Black Sheep Cam" to get live streamed video from the show.

Re: AMA EXPO WEST 2019

We've been moved! The Black Sheep Exhibition Squadron's booths have been moved close to the Make And Take area. (See Map) This makes sense since we are running the airplane make and take with Guillow's gliders for the kids.

Re: Indoor Flying with the O.F.F.C.

The NoCal contest gets more interesting. Rules specify a 16 inch span (Legal) NoCal model but with a 12 gram minimum weight. Fixed landing gear with rolling wheels required, no drop off gear, and all flights must start ROG.

Re: Indoor Flying with the O.F.F.C.

The One Design contest, for Mini-Sonics, went off, as scheduled, on September 25. There was a good turnout with nine entrants out of the twelve kits sold. (I could not find my model! It's in my shop somewhere.) The nine entrants got their dough back. 055smaller.jpg The contestants, flying what is es...
