Hi Mike,

I just wanted to send a quick note about the Hemet qualifier this past weekend.

I brought the Mirage and pulled off first place Expert finish with it, qualifying for the Championships in October! 🙂 Static score was 99.25 with an average flight score of about 91. It was a fun weekend with some pretty good ATX representation there (there were 4-5 ATX shirts including myself).

I’m already planning the trip to Woodland-Davis for the championships, should be fun!

I had originally planned to bring the NTJets Panther and compete in Pro-Am Pro as I wasn’t sure I’d be able to get the flight time out of the Jet Hangar Mirage. On a whim I brought it out on one of my practice days and to my surprise I was able to get a full competition routine out of it. So, I immediately changed my focus in that direction. We did have to keep tabs on my time aloft, but it worked out great.

I have a different setup in mind for the Scale Masters Championships that should help get some additional endurance out of the airplane and also save some additional weight.

I just wanted to say thanks to you and Airtronics for the support. Let’s see if we can give them a good run at the Championships!


(Note that several Airtronics Members Qualified and/or placed at this event including Tim Cardin, David Lloyd and his Son too! Congrats to all of the competitors and to the Hemet club for hosting the Qualifier again this year.)
