Jason had his Nano Goblin FPV plane in the air on Friday evening chasing Marc and Chris around and getting some cool shots of the field.
This month’s Friday Fun Fly was a non-glider gliding tournament where two airplanes would go head to head and see who could climb the fastest and glide the longest. Congrats to Chris for winning a genuine one of many FliteFest 2018 t-shirts.
Barry wanted to show off his new moves with the F-22 Raptor while Jason tried to keep up. Dave gave us his best Vanna White impression. Good times at MARCS.
No dinosaurs were injured in the making of this video.
As promised, here are the aerial shots of the newly cut field. We’re sorry about the smudged lens on fast moving shots, our video guy has been reprimanded.

MARCS had the honor of hosting the maiden flight of Tom Miller’s Cessna. His son and current MARCS member Robert Miller provided the following story about the airplane.
Dr. Tom began building his Top Flite Cessna 182 just before and after his wife Ruth passed away. He is 87 years old and it was compiled after 2 1/2 years. He built his first balsa plane 80 years ago at age 7 and won his first balsa rubber band indoor free flight competition at age 11.
The Cessna was brought to the MARCS field to have the president of the club Marc Stermer trim it out and test fly it. Marc loved it.

Marc took advantage of the first day of summer weather to properly maiden his P-38 Lightning. No rain this time!
Marc and Jason toughed out some bad weather just so Marc could maiden his P-38. Jason even managed to get on camera for once.
