There were 202 flights on the sport range today, with 10 gliders and
41 high power flights. "K" was the most powerful motor used.
Many of you are curious, so I'll answer. The GRR did not fly today. Chris discovered a broken servo and spent a good part of the day looking for a replacement in local hobby shops. He was successful and hopes to make his flight on Sunday. We will have to wait another day to see how this saga plays out.
As NARAM participants arrived and settled in, they were drawn to the range with motors to burn. There were many outstanding flights as well as a number of not so successful ones. Gliders of all shapes and sizes proved to be extremely popular on the sport range this year. A few people were obviously testing their contest birds.
The weather was hot as expected, but there was a pleasant breeze at times. Everyone held up fairly well thanks to ample supplies of liquid refreshment and the very popular snow cone vendor.
