New Years Day "Nitro-Chili-Burn"

As promised earlier last month.......the pictures I took of our club's 3rd annual New Years Day "Nitro-Chili-Burn" fly in event. I finally got my GoPro camera back from the warranty repair work that was done and they made sure to send my storage card back with it that I'd inadvertently left in the camera when I sent it in for the warranty work, and with this brutal cold snap we are under right now the work schedule load is all but non-existent for the present time, so that allowed me the time at home to get this report in now.

 The winds on New Years day were quite ferocious so not many pilots got the chance to get in very many flights that day, but some did. The temperature was not cold that day by itself but the winds made the day a bit chilly, but yet bearable too. I was able to get in a couple of flights using my video camera quad-copter platform on that day also, along with taking some still pictures of those folks that braved the cold and windy day to have a great time of visiting and enjoying the pot luck lunch that everyone helped with. I certainly appreciate all of the effort and hard work put in by all of the volunteers to see that this event was another great success too!

  I sure hope to see everyone out at the field enjoying some great winter-time flying in the very near future, and I have gotten in a few more flights on the snow this season now, using both my quadcopter and my .40 sized UPROAR 3d plane on ski's when the snow has been present, or on wheels when the runway has been clear.

 Once again, thanks to all of the pilots and members and the public for the great turnout for this event again this year, and let's keep up the great time of flying and enjoying this great hobby of ours.
