Johns Jet Jamboree 2014

2014 Jet fly PMAC, third time was a charm weather wise.  First two years were shall we say: ”Wet”.  We had 21 flyers sign up.  Our mass launch tied the old record of 12 jets in the air together.  Three clubs were in attendance.  Walt’s “Gulls over the dump” sums up the visual impact.  Swirling jets flying the pattern.  The group “Loop” is pretty cool.  Joe and George supplied the sound system which really added a nice touch, not too loud but good music and sounds added to the event.  Brian was a help with safety and the Microphone.  John Glenn’s “Spitfire Grill” fed the masses.  Glenn B. helped with the sign up.  Thank you everyone that helped out.  I had a great time flying the trusty “Habu2” and helping various flyers with there machines.  Good job everyone and thanks for coming out and making this our best jet fly yet.

New Product Announcement

Good Day,
While building my scratch built airplane designs often I like to use magnet hatches.  I usually drill a hole or Dremel an area to attach a magnet.  I thought a magnet hatch system might be useful.  If I need it maybe others would too.  I designed a prototype for 1/8″ lite ply and Mark at Retro RC helped me to “tweak” the design and manufactures them.
There are different shape mounts that allow corner mounting as well as center and bulkhead mounts.  There are 2 versions available: one is the system with 6 magnets, the other is just the wood piece use your own magnets.  The flat head screws allow the magnets to snap to them.
You could also glue a washer to the hatch.  In the future Mark will be designing a micro size as well.  Give it a try on your next project.  Priced $5.99 with magnets.
Good flights!
