This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is John 'Doc' Smith! Doc built this Gollywock from a Bob Holman short kit. He will fly this in the Spirit of SAM category at the next SAM event. It is covered with MicroLite covering. This plane is powered by two separate bateries. One battery, 1-cell 500mAh, for the receiver/servos, and the second battery, 1-cell 150mAh, to power the motor (.05 Hacker). This beauty only weights 154 grams! Doc wins a $50 gift certificate from Anchorage House of Hobbies!
JBER RC REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! The military implemented a new regulation as of late December 2015 that closes JBER RC field when the base is at threat level FPCON B (which it is currently) or higher. Do not attempt to go out there for any reason until further notice. We will be able to fly on base again when the threat level is lowered or when they change that policy. Base Ops and security has been alerted to not allow anybody to fly out there.
