I actually plan on painting the nose cone tip gold, but the dew points are too high here in NW Arkansas right now. Plus, it has to be painted to fly in Argonia. I was also going to apply the gold vinyl film to the leading edges of the fins, but that may be too much. Still debating that.

I didn't know you were flying on Friday or I would have planned on coming up Thursday.

I'm bringing 6 rockets to fly but that may be a little optimistic for just Saturday & Sunday with a 2 hour shift of range duty included.

Getting ready to pack up tomorrow, see you guys Friday night.

I'll be flying my Go Devil 38 on one of AeroTech's newest offerings. The new, J520W, No Hazmat, US mail-able J motor! It was demo'd at Airfest and Charlie was kind enough to
let me demo it again at High Frontier. That will be Sat. afternoon. Then Sunday will be the maiden flight of my Go Devil 54 on a J180.

On Friday at 2pm. Brandon Worley from channel 2 in Tulsa KJRH will be at the airport in Pawhuska doing some social networking and blogging to advertise our launch. He is the weekend weather man.

I'd love to come and help you set up but I can't get away until Friday afternoon, maybe next year. Any big flights planned that you know of? I may fly my 6 fin with an M if the winds are light.

Been offline. Good to know HF is still on after all the rain! I received at least 5'' and I'm only 45 min. away from Pawhuska. Hope the field Isn't to soft for traffic. See y'all there for setup.
I bought a JLCR at AF, could use some mentoring.
