  • MRCA fall Aerotow October 14th and 15th

    We are doing it again,

    two weeks from now we will be flying at our field for the last event of the season in midwest

    Checked a new prop on my bidule this morning with Scott, tri blade 24x12 that work very well and make the bidule a notch quieter

      Hi Stephane,

      I made 75 copies of your flier and gave John about 50 for his hobby shop. I will place the remainder in Rider's Hobby Shop in Flint.

      See you this weekend.

              Hi Stephane,

              I will be there Saturday. I have updated the guys on my mailing list as to the weather and look forward to getting some more time on the Minimoa !!

              BTW, I final balanced the Storch today and get a new Roof Box for the car tomorrow to carry wings. It should help get tug and sailplanes to the field comfortably. Alas, the Storch will maiden next week. I almost made it for this event....

                For those that have not visited the MRCA Airfield, it is a really nice location. Large unobstructed overfly area with no significant obstacles on either end of runway. Makes take off and landing large scale sailplanes much easier and less stressful. I have had the opportunity to fly tow there on a number of occasions and throughly enjoyed it.Go check it out!

                Wish I could make it this time, but just too many things to do too close together.

                        First again and again : NEVER TRUST THE WEATHER

                        we had a great saturday, was raining all day 5 miles north of us...

                        Small attendance as weather was somehow not cooperating, the hardcore flyier were there of course, thank to my Chicago friends that joined us, and some member of the Frankenmuth club for joining us and offering training with the foamy Ka8

                          I must protest, still no Cowl on that Bidule, surly that is a compliance issue after all this time

                            I think it is economical

                            I landed on the nose again! The line stopped me 3ft from the ground, line got caught in the corn an towplane came to a sudden stop!

                            first good new is that the fixing of the firewall is strong, it didn’t budge, but. Bad side I have a front wheel bent!!!

                              The Bidule 170's have the mass to remove the largest of corn stalks, Just saying..... Especially now that you have a trailer(almost) that is all set up to carry one and a good number of sailplanes.....I'm sure your middle brother Bidule would quickly find a foster home!

                                This reminds me of an old saying...

                                "Big bugs have little bugs upon their backs to bite them...
                                and little bugs have lesser bugs, and so on adinfinitum!"

                                Corn stalks yes, but not oak trees. Ask me how I know?!
