Sunday, October 9th was a beautiful day with sunny skies and light winds… and best of all it was the day of the annual fly in for the Columbus Firemans Cheer Fund. This event is a combination fly in for the local RC folks and an air show for the locals who might like to come out and observe. Martin Hooks and I got together for the ride down and when we arrived we found fellow club member Steve Woods had also made the trip.
In the past, I have always enjoyed this event due to the laid back and welcoming atmosphere, good food, and a great facility. Since this event benefits a great cause and typically has some great raffles and pilot prizes… and you have a winning combination. All of the above is what keeps me coming back year after year.
This year I got in flights with my Carbon Cub, AeroWorks Extra 260, Flyzone Tidewater and the QX 350 quad. In total I got in around at least 7 or 8 flights and on one of them I attached the GoPro Session to the bottom of the cub. Here’s the video from that flight.
As you can tell, it was a nice day for RC flight and it all benefited a good cause. All the pilots got at least one pilots prize and I even won a raffle prize. I may have been able to buy the prize for what I put into the raffle but the plan was to help the Cheer Fund and enjoy the day… the prize was just a bonus! We had a great day.
