SEFF and New Workshop

I had a chance to visit the Southeast Electric Flight Festival, held at Hodges Field in Americus, Georgia on April 13th.  SEFF is one of the country’s premier electric flight venues with a range of electric powered models on display and doing their thing in the air.

Due to work commitments we could only visit during the start of the Festival on April 13th, with folks arriving to set up their tents, models and flying support stations. The main body of flying started the next day and continues through the weekend.

Hodges field is a perfect location for this sort of event with huge grassy runways, plenty of flying areas, on site camping and even a pond for water flying. I look forward to a longer visit in 2017!

Back on the home front we are making great progress with the refinish of our basement. It is just about complete as the pictures of my new work shop will attest.

I purchased the Stevens Aero BuzzBomb 400 old timer RC model plane and will begin building soon. I also ordered a Thunder Power RC charger with lipo batteries.  I need just a few more supplies and a couple of days off from work before construction can commence.  Will keep you posted!
