This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Don Myers! Don built this SAM Electric Texaco class, NG2, from plans that were published in Flying Models magazine. Don says he took his time building this plane because he wanted to get all the little details just right. He started the project in 2007! The plane comes in at 17 ounces and has a Hacker A10-15 motor swinging a 7x3 propellor. There are two separate batteries on board. One battery, a 2-cell, 200mAh LiPo, supplies juice to the motor while the second battery, a 4-cell 2,700mAh NiMh, supplies the power for the receiver and servos! Don 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.
