KRAM Pilot Wins 3rd Place at Top Gun 2014

I'm happy to announce that one of our very own members, Mike Grady, placed 3rd again in Team Scale this year at Top Gun! Congrats Mike!!

"The event  at Top Gun 2014 was Team Scale. Team normally means one person builds the aircraft and another fly's it in the competition. Dustin Buscher from BVM models is my pilot. The MiG-15  also won third in Team last year. For 2014 I corrected all of the 2013 judges criticisms  from last year and made an additional 40 plus scale enhancements. This year heavy rains reduced the flying for team and three other events to only one flight. Last year the MiG and my pilot scored very well in four rounds of flight scores which allowed us to win third. This year we hoping for better static and flying numbers but had to go with only one flight. Our total score was 188.750."

2014 News Years Flyin

At 11 degrees, and a -5 windchill with ~10mph winds, it was indeed a frozen finger flyin! About a dozen of us braved the fierce winter to bring in the new year by boring holes in the sky. Unfortunately, the bitter temperatures prevented some of the engines from starting. Danny Osborn and Brian Thomas both got theirs running long enough for a flight. The rest of us warmed up the electrons and took the skies with our WMPF Makos. Sloppy Joes, Chili Dogs and chips were made by Roz, which everyone enjoyed! Thanks for coming out everyone! Pics are online here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/112847063@N04/sets/72157639322592914/
