The Anchorage House of Hobbies Pretty Plane contest winner for October is Don Myers with his Miss Stik! It is a Tom Hunt design. The motor, prop, and servos came from a Pico stick. The pushrods are actually guitar strings! The juice is provided by a 300mAH 2-cell lipo. The super light and beautiful covering job was created by Don painting (on the inside) the Doculam covering. The Miss Stik weighs in at 7-5/8 ounces. For his craftsmanship he takes home a $50 gift card 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.
