    The end

    August 24 in Romania

    Four flights done, a few medals and an adventure complete here, now me and Richard drive 1500 kilometers to Czech Republic to disassemble and crate the planes, what a well run contest, the judging was fair always seemed to come out as expected or little better, Aaron had questionable point today that two judges hard zeroed, that video review is tough, it was hard call , looked like a real big roll rate change but they called it a point, we protested as team to keep it honest but jury upheld hard zero. They are always looking for a way to sink the battleship if given opportunity . Gold medal for Aaron , two bronze medal for Matt and team got silver overall. I would have loved to be at banquet when played national anthem for that gold medal.Read more

    Technical committee

    August 20 in Romania

    I some how got to be on the technical committee, if some one has a problem in the box , they land and we sort out if it was beyond the pilots control or within what he should have taken care of, it is a stressful position to have some how acquired. We have had two issues already, it is very difficult to sort out and forward your report to the jury, I guess it’s life at a world contest, someone has to do it, look at scores , Matt got a bronze medal in the last flight and all but one pilot scored very well with no hard zeros. We are into the second unknown, Michael Drew number one and he killed it with a 76 percent flight, 2nd at the moment. He is improving with every flight .Read more

    Pele Castle

    July 29, 2016 in Romania

    Ah Pele Castle in Sinaia <3 surely the place fairy tales are set. To get to Sinaia it's a two or three hour train ride from Bucharest, I can't remember which. But it's a train ride worth taking.

    You arrive at a small train station in Sinaia on the side of a road. There's nothing else around except trees and a stone staircase. Once up the steps you are greeted with a magical view of the castle resting on the side of the green slopes. As you ascend the slopes you walk through a quaint little park on the banks of a river, the path is laden with market stalls of locals selling handmade crafts; bags, sweets, art etc. and you can hear the sound of an accordionist playing.Read more
