Outdoor Season opener a big success!

Well gang, the 2022 Stealth Sqdn outdoor flying season got off to a strong start on Saturday May 14.

The weather at Woodsom Farm in Amesbury, MA started off with more wind than expected.  But the wind moderated by midday and many long flights were made.

New Models

Flyers were productive over the long winter building season and several new models were seen in the air.

Steve E was spotted flying his big Condor and another new rakish sport model he calls Corvette.  Terrific new designs from Steve.

Sean R entered a great flying Leopard Moth in the Golden Age Civil event.  We think this was from an EasyBuilt kit.

Several Comet T-Crafts from the Indoor One Design event were seen flitting about. 

Vance G put in a few promising test flights with his outstanding new Latecoere FAC Scale Model.  Vance built this from enlarged Steve Griebling plans published in an old Crosswinds newsletter.

Tom N flew his new flat-winged Airdevel Fokker Transport dime scale model.

And there were many more.

Hot Competition

Camaraderie and freindly competition is featured in all Stealth Sqdn meets,  but there were a couple special moments at the May 14 meet. 

Sean R won the hotly contested WW2 mass launch event with his reduced-size version of the Nassise Mustang.

The P-51 “Old Crow” flew straight and long using up much of the field to edge out Tom N’s Polikarpov I-153.

Sean in turn got edged out in the Golden Age/Modern Civil event.  His DH Leopard Moth just couldn’t hang in there against Rich Z’s Guillow’s Fairchild 24 which was flown by Evan P.

Vance G’s dainty little General Airistocrat was flying great and won the Peanut Scale event. 

It was a great day.  See you in June  at the Ipswich Polo Field meet skyster!

October Meet Results Posted!

View results HERE.

See you on the flightline!

 

October meet moved to October 10

October meet moved to Sunday 10/10!

View the updated Contest Flyer with directions & contacts HERE.

Please adjust your schedule accordingly so you can attend.

Events are unchanged – just the day of the meet has been moved from Saturday October 9 to Sunday October 10.

The reason for the change is a double-booking of the Woodsom Farm field.   The brass hats felt it best to just push our meet to Sunday.  Easy fix.

We’re down to the last meets of the 2021 Outdoor Season.   Don’t miss this opportunity.

Again, view the updated Contest Flyer HERE.

See you on the flightline!

 

Amesbury Dates Coming Soon!?

Discussions are underway with the town – stay tuned!

A Glimmer of Hope

First, cross all your fingers and then all your toes too.

The Rittmeister tells us there is some activity in talking with the town about contest dates for the late summer and fall.

The town has not said “yes” and there are no dates.

Nonetheless, we are hopeful and can see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Hopefully, it’s not an oncoming train.

So, keep building and flying and keep checking back to this site for updates.

Oh,  and a small group of us have been flying weekend mornings at Woodsom.  Reach out to us via the  Contact Us form if you want to get the heads-up when we go out.

Keep Calm, Carry On & Stay safe.
