George Marenko flying his Me-109 (above). George would end up first in Beginner Profile. Bill Richards’ Jamison Special (at right), flying in Old Time


Bucks 550. By the end of this first day, only 10.5 points separated the top three Experts (Mike Palko, Dan Banjock, and Kent Tysor), in a huge field of 25 competitors. Scale flights took place on the fully-paved


circle on the hill just beyond a grove of trees and picnic benches, next to the carrier cir- cle. The weather was very favorable this year for both activities, with light winds on both days. John Vlna used E-flite’s convert- ible electric PT-19 (reviewed in FM, Feb, 2010) to gain first place in Fun Scale. Bill Avera was first in Profile Scale with his LA- 5 (a Soviet warplane). Ed Mason’s awesome B-29 was first in Sport Scale. Clancy Arnold’s immense new Taube was third in Sport Scale. In WWII Profile Combat, Paul Smith


came out on top, out of a field of four. Speed- Limit Combat had thirteen competitors, with Louis Lopez first, Shawn Cook second, and Roy Glenn third. 16-year-old Shawn had quite a week: Profile Advanced Stunt


Sport Expert class. The ideal in Combat: just bite off the end of the opposition’s streamer and then you can come back to get some more (below).


Shawn Cook sprints back to the building table (at left) for Team Cook in the Junkyard Wars construction. Team Ultronics’ creation from the Junkyard Wars, lifts off for a flight (above). The odd creation featured a variable throttle control through the wires and allowed it to perform touch and goes (below).
