Happy 4thof July 2016
From Jim Alvord, Webmaster Macon Aero Modelers.
We're Offically into to the summer flying season in the Smoky mountains of Otto, NC .
we are getting ready for the upcoming Annual Summer Invitational Fly-in at OTX this year on National Model Aviation Day, August 13th. This year the selected Charity will be the American Legion and the crew will be cooking Hot dogs and BBQ as usual.The public is invited to bring your lawn chairs umbrellas and Cameras and enjoy being ntertained by some great R/C pilots with their beautiful flying creations.
With daytime Temperatures in the 80's and most nights in the 50's it's the nicest flying conditions one could expect in Otto, NC.There have been some variable breezes in the later afternoons, but that just comes with the territory.
I expect there are going to be alot more Quads this year despite the FAA new registration regulations due in large part to the publicity in national news to be mixed in with the usual planes and helicopters that we all enjoy.
Master builder ,Dave Fouts has done it again. Check out the video below of his newest creation to grace the skies over OTX. it's a Scratch built Electric ducted fan powered WWII V1 Rocket Bomb, like the ones Germany Unleashed on Great Britain during the great war. It flies beautifully.
