Red face Re: Blue Foamie

Wow, looks like I missed a huge event.

I was not able to make this Sunday, I wish I could have, would have been nice to see Andrew do his thing.

My grandfather just passed away from cancer, I was out with family today!

Well, nice paint jobs and sounds like you all had lots of FUN!!!!

Re: Blue Foamie

too bad you couldn,t come rolly.sorry to hear about your grandfathers passing.here,s a couple of pictures of my 6 year old son dominik.he,s got the blue foamy bug thanks to gaston for giving him some blue foam.he made up his own version of a blue foamy.theres also another pic taken by a fellow club member of dominik holding his airhogs biplane.he,s got the rc bug and hopefully by the time he turns eight after practicing on the sim he will become a pilot like his oldman.

Re: Blue Foamie

Just wanted to add my 2 cents. It was another fun weekend in the North. A building session at Gastons on Saturday where six more planes were built and we got to meet Andrew and Michelle who were also the main graphics design team of the day.
This was followed up on Sunday with a brunch on Sunday morning at Fazoolies (I think Gaston is getting kick-backs for bringing in extra business) and then to the gym for flying and an eye opening demo from Andrew on what these inexpensive foamies can do. Some of us helped support the hot glue industry when the walls and floor won the battles.
Sorry to hear that your Grandfather passed away Rolly. I tried the new tray from Robbe on Sunday. Unfortunately there was no magical transformation to accomplished pilot, but it felt comfortable to use, so we'll see what happens.

Re: Blue Foamie

This picture taken by John Pearson shows part of the gym where we fly on Sundays, more people showed up later. With that many people midairs do happen but nobody gets upset, most of the time it's not serious enough to stop flying and it's more hilarious than anything. We really try not to have midairs but it's hard to avoid, if a person wants to wait a a little bit, the crowd thins out later in the afternoon, then it's much easier. I like to watch people fly and help out when someone needs a part or some advice, there's still plenty of time for me to fly, we have the gym for 5 hours.

Hey
How come you guys are having fun when I am isolated in Florida. My blue pizza flies well at the local park.
