    I'm going to try and fly the subterranean course with my Wraith micro airplane. It's a bit tight for a plane, but I might be able to manage it.

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

    Jeremiah/Matt/Alex: Looks like fun. Can you guys post some pics or better yet aerial video of the flying site? ---Are we going to be flying distance up the hillside, or out over the valley?

    I really enjoyed the event last year--- Quality event, Fun people, and a fantastic facility. I'm hoping this year will be more of the same!

    Good luck
