4 HAFFA EVENT SUMMARIES “One for the Books!” — Jeff Renz Reporting 2/22

February 5, 2022 Indoor Flying Session —We had 6 flyers at this event.  Warm temperatures in the auditorium greeted us on a super cold morning outside.  Unloading our planes was an adventure with the streets and concrete steps curbing full of ice.  Everyone managed to get in safely and get set up.  No-call flying was one of the main focal points for the morning flying.  Roie was able to get a 2 minute flight with his turbo Cessna after some coaxing of the rudder setting.  A great flying airplane.
Mike Schmidt showed up with his aircraft fleet.  His No-cal Cardinal was flying great.  Plans for this are available on “hip pocket” aeronautics website.  Mike drew up the plans some years ago along with a color scheme sheet.  This is a very consistent flyer!  
Jack Vetter made the trip with his fleet of models and flew all events.  His P18 flew quite well. His P18 was from a NFFS centerfold plan a few years ago.  It is consistent as well.  Dana brought a new glider ….”Ear Spear” a Dick Mathis design that he published in the last DISPATCH club newsletter.  Check out the photos.  It is a cool model to see once you see it fully built.  Gary fired up his fleet of rubber powered models.  His GEE BEE No-cal is just amazing! check out the video of it flying in the photo links.
Suman made it down to Osawatomie as well.  He had been at the giant RC swap meet for the KCRC club and reported it was well attended.  Next year I will schedule the flying session for February on a different day so everyone can attend.  Suman flew a No-cal he had repaired and trimmed out.  A Gloster Meteor from Carl Perkins.  Lots of wing area to work with on that model.  Fun to watch.  I managed to bust the wing on my Gloster Meteor when it tangled with the basketball hoop structure.  I have been tracking the points for the Intraclub Contest and will be publishing them soon.
Here are photos taken my Jeff Renz at the February 5th HAFFA Indoor Flying Session at Osawatomie, Kansas.

Our January 8,2022 Indoor Flying Session was quite a SUCCESS! Here are some photos and videos from the event taken by Jeff Renz. —Enjoy! — There are some really nice videos of some of the indoor model aircraft showing flights of over 3 minutes to check out as well as some great photos of our member’s masterpieces! Mike Schmidt, a long time member who recently began attending HAFFA events after a period of time away is shown in the first photo. He and Gary Hodson, who also had taken a sort of hiatus of his own, ended up competing with their A-6 Indoor models. Quite a battle ensued. We greatly enjoy what each of these valued members bring to the mix and glad that they have become more active again.
