WOW it's Labor Day Weekend here in the Smokys - Where did the Summer GO?!

           From Jim Alvord, Webmaster Macon Aero Modelers.

      It's very hard to believe that tomorrow is the first of September. There have been a few good weekends, but a lot more good weekdays that we've watched go by from the windows at work. The greenhouse is nearing completion - maybe I'll get to go flying yet this year!

      Sorry to say that I haven't received much news from OTX on the events except for the notices that they were coming. I did get a Thank You from the President, Greg to the members for their help on Model Aviation Day. Also the club needs volunteers for the upcoming Macon County Fair to man the booth Sept. 17th thru 20th. Also I'd like to thank Bill Duncan for the Sefety Article and Rob Brunner for his Member Page.

      Hopefully when I get back to Flying - I'll be able to write more informative articles from personal observation. In the mean time, it would be nice to see an article about our club, hobby/sport or a technical piece from someone and maybe even a couple pictures that can be reposted for everyone. Hey - even a webmaster can dream! Lou, thanks for the video I just haven't been able to get an embed code that will work - I'll keep at it as I have time. Using the iFrames makes the site load the webpage very slow.

Until next time - Happy trails and keep the wheels down for landing!

      Send in whatever you'd like to share from builds to tech articles. How-to stuff would be fabulous! Breaking in motors, building from scratch with Balsa or Foam would be nice. For you other foamie builder/flyers, check out the RCPowers website for some unique 3D foamie models plans. They're unique and appear to be great planes to fly - that's what I'm building right now for when I come back! RCPowers Foamie Models NOTE: this is not an affiliate link!
