At The Field

The first Micro Scale fly-in of the 2009-2010 season was last Thursday.  Highlights of this event were:

Question for you guys is – what night of the week works best for you for the Micro Fly-In? We asked those that came tonight which night they preferred – surprisingly those that showed up on Thursday night picked Thursday (image that).  After careful consideration and to cover all bases, we thought that maybe we could be a tad bit more scientific about how we poll you, the pilots of York County Flyers.

So cast your vote and watch the process.  Multiple nights might work fine for you and if so then select multiple nights.



The Charlotte Aeromodelers held their grand opening this weekend.  Daniel and I got there real late – but here’s some pictures form the event – here’ s a brief video of the Charlotte Aeromodelers Field Mascot too – enjoy!

Here are some shots from the York County Flyers club meeting.  This one was a little unusual for the year because the day started out dreary and overcast.  We brought out the micro flyers and had fun with a Sukhoi and a couple Ember2’s.

Enjoy the rest of them here!


On Saturday the York County Flyers had our spring Fun Flyin.  AMA members with all kinds of equipment were invited to come out and fly.  A great variety of raffle items were awarded thanks to our sponsors from the Hobby Stop and Lake Wylie Hobby, plus special recognition for the Best Military, Best Bi-Plane, Best Sport, and Peoples Choice we awarded.

Some of the images captured are on display in the following albums:

Flight Line – Individual pictures of pretty much all of the equipment that was out flying

Event Pictures – General pictures of various elements of the event

Panoramic Pictures – Special Panoramic pictures which is a combination of many pictures “stitched” together using autostitch.

Dave Good and his P47 – Winner of the Peoples Choice and Best Military, Dave Good’s outstanding craftsmanship and piloting skills were on display as Dave had a little trouble with his award winning P47 when he lost a wheel on takeoff of this birds first flight of the day.  25 minutes later he’s was able to get the P47 back in the air – these pictures tell the amazing story.
