Guest pilot, Chris Hass visits OTX and what a show! 4/25/15
From Jim Alvord, Webmaster Macon Aero Modelers.
It's hard to imagine doing these maneuvers in cross-winds at OTX.
After watching Chris put his plane through it's paces, I realize just how much more I need to learn and practice before I'll ever consider myself a decent pilot.
It's Spring in the mountains! As usual this is a combination of rain with scattered days of sunshine and clouds. Most daytime temperatures are in the 60's to low 70's. Despite some windy conditions, it's great flying weather when you can get out to the field.
There are times when I wonder if the rest of our pilots are as eager to get out and "Hit the Airwaves" so to speak, like I am. It's time to start testing and recharging my batteries again. I'm afraid I'll have to replace most of them.
As in years past, the Millenium and Miss 2 will get the first crack at OTX skies for me. Then I'll break out some of the more challenging planes and in another 3 - 5 years I may be able to do some of Chris's rock solid flight maneuvers. And if not, I'll still enjoy the beauty and peace that is OTX in Otto, NC. Just having a plane in the air and getting it back safely to terra-firma is sometimes enough.
We'd like to thank Chris Hass for visiting OTX on his travels through the Smoky Mountains and showing us what dedication and lots of practice can produce, One Fine Ambassador for our Sport / hobby. We wish you sucess in your future competitions, and hope you'll come back to "Fly our Friendly Skies" whenever your in the area!
