Looking for F1A bits

From:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Sir:

 

I am looking for some old F1A wings, stabs, etc that I can buy when I am visiting the Bay area in mid-Feb to early-March 2009. The parts can be old style all-wood, or modern composite construction. Low weight is a priority. I am limited in how much I can spend, so older, used items are fine. I can be reached prior to the sale for discussion.

Bob Gutai Condition, 1-31-09 AM:
 
Bob Gutai is currently the hospital as a result of complication that developed after hernia surgery earlier this week.  He is out of Intensive Care and into a closely watch care unit.  Bob condition was very serious after his surgery but as of this morning when I spoke with Marie he is doing much better.  He is alert and talking but he could be in the hospital for several more days or weeks.
 
Currently he is not able to receive phone calls at the hospital.  If you would like to send him a card his home mailing address is below and Marie will take the cards with her to the hospital.  Please keep Bob in your thought as he needs all the support he can get at this time.

2009 FAI Southwest Regionals Model Airplane Championships

 

The weather for the 2 days of FAI flying at the 59th SWR was pretty nice with blue and sunny Arizona skies. On Saturday, Jan. 17, it started out a cool 40°F with winds at 8mph but then dropping to 4mph. It then warmed up to 74°F with the wind speed increasing again in the afternoon. Sunday morning was a bit warmer with 42°F heating up to 78°F and nearly calm until 11 AM.

 

We had a total of 52 sportsmen signed up for the 8 FAI events. They were from  AZ, CA, CO, CT, KS, LA, MI, NV, OH, OK, OR, PA, TX, WA and Great Britain (3) and Bosnia-Herzegovina. F1A, F1B, F1C/P were decided on Saturday. Jim Parker was the only one in F1A to do the 5 min. in the 5-man fly-off and repeated his win of the December Arizona Champs. Blake Jensen, the 2008 F1B America’s Cup winner, also repeated his December win by coming out ahead in the 5-man F1B fly-off. Paul Crowley launching in the F1B fly-off was not so lucky. As he jumped on his retrieval bike he inadvertently hit the RDT button which brought his Wakefield down in 27 seconds. In F1C/P Ed Carroll was the only one to get all 7 maxes to win this combined event. In F1Q, the electric event, we had 7 people (Julie Faust and 6 guys) flying. The max. motor run was 25 sec. but all used 20 seconds. After 7 rounds we had 3 with all maxes.. The F1Q fly-off was the last on Saturday with a 10 sec. motor run. Bernie Crowe was the only one to achieve the 180 seconds and won like in December. We had 4 FAI Juniors flying. Miles Johnson from Connecticut, the F1A winner last year at Las Vegas, was the highest score Junior and was 2nd overall in F1A.

 

On Sunday we flew F1G, F1H and F1J. In F1J we had only 3 flying. Faust Parker was the only one to max-out to again win the “Bear” as he did in 2008. After 5 rounds in F1G there were still 6 flyers (Tiffaney O’Dell and 5 guys) all clean and also in F1H 5 sportsmen were maxed-out. At the end of the last round it had become really windy and some dust was blowing – and big thermals were still about. We waited and then decided to have the F1G and F1H fly-offs at the MaxMen Sunday in Lost Hills.

 
 

A big thank you to all participants and to Elmer Nelson, Mike Bower, Tom Gaylor and my wife Brigitte who all made this contest a memorable event.
