2010

"The event was Beat Your Span, for any Easy Built kit. The models had to land back on the field for the flight to count, without a DT [dethermalizer]. Jim Alling won with an almost-finished Rearwin Speedster. His best flight was 129 seconds. 2nd was Jim Sprenger with an Auster that went OOS [out of sight] in a thermal in an attempt to catch the leader. Don Smith took 3rd with a Tiger Moth. There were 11 aircraft entered, all but 1 powered by rubber. All types of power systems were allowed, and the model's wingspan was deducted from each flight score to allow even competition between the planes. Your product line is pretty extensive and we wanted to see if we could compete all the sizes against one another. It worked pretty well!" - Dave Gee, Black Sheep Squadron Club president, contest director, and 5th place finisher with my Pitcairn
