Bring your planes because the pile is small and should burn fast.

IRCHA 2007 Southwest Fun Fly to be held at the Modelport!

It looks like the Utah Heli Association won the bid again this year to host the International Radio Control Helicopter Association 2007 Southwest Fun Fly. They held it last year, and the only real problem I was aware of is that the little RC field by the lake in Utah County just doesn't scale well to larger events.

IRCHA Southwest Regional FunFly - 3rd Annual: September 2007 (Exact Date TBD) - We are Hosting this event!!

Hi guys, IRCHA approved our proposal to host the IRCHA Southwest Funfly again this year. It will be bigger and better. We will be holding it at the SLC Modelport sometime in early September. This will be a great event for the club, so pitch in where you can. Gary Travis will be the event CD again, give him a thanks when you see him.

SR201 Closed May 12

If you use SR201 there is a sign that says it's closed Saturday. Looks like it's closed before the I-80 cross-over so I'd just take I-80 back at I-215.

Fence project postponed

The fence project scheduled for Sunday May 6th is postponed due to bad weather.

Paul Bradshaw's 2007 "E-Power Setups That Work" document

Paul Bradshaw, local "big electric" airplane guru in the Salt Lake City area (but, unfortunately, not a Ute member), has updated his "E-Power Setups That Work" document for 2007. The text is below; I've also attached the doc file.

Paul has been flying electric for longer than I've been flying airplanes, and has an impressive amount of knowledge on the subject. His flights and outstanding birds are always a show-stopper, and it was talking to him and learning about his airplanes which really got me interested in electric-powered flight.

Field Clean-Up Day

Bugs are out.!

Bring your bug repellent. No bugs Saturday at the fun fly but Sunday it was bug city. Lots of gnats and mosquitoes. I got two tiny bites. Mostly they were globbing onto my glasses making it hard to see.

Also, bring your cow repellent. They were on the field. They are not the least bit afraid of loud airplane engines :)
