11th Annual Hi Johnson Memorial Control Line Contest

It was another Beautiful day in the Van Nuys Basin at the Apollo XI Airfield for the 11th Annual Hi Johnson Memorial Control Line Contest. It was a great turn out and slightly hotter then I expected it to be LOL. After signing up for the .15 Carrier event I spent some time on the stunt circles talking to some of the pilots and friends. Unfortunately I could only make it for the Sunday event but I will definitely be posting the results for both days once they are made available. I made my way over to the carrier circle to set up my model and talk to the other pilots before the events started. After I put in my flights I made my rounds and took some pictures. All in All I had a great time!

I fly Control line, Electric RC, Sailplanes and I have flown Nitro RC and Rockets in the past. I Pretty Much love all types of flying hobbies except helicopters. I just never got into them due to price and their style of flying. I am also into Hot Rods and occasionally I run RC Nitro 4x4 Trucks. Thanx for checking out my profile. :)
