It’s a prototype Hawk. Retracts and struts are included and installed. This one will be flown first with a JHH fan and then will be flown with some top secret Larry-Special fan equipment. More to come soon. Enjoy the pics!

BUMMER: It’s canceled due to the expected huge storm coming through this weekend 😦
The weather forecast for this weekend is not looking good unless you’re a duck. So we’ve postponed the OCMA Fun Fly and BBQ. We will be rescheduling this event at the next BOD meeting with a target for early next year and will notify everyone in plenty of time.

Team Airtronics pilots will be there flying the new BH FW190 as well as the new prototype Zlin 50 (powered with the Mark Engines Gas 140). Larry Wolfe from Jet Hangar will be flying our B17G from ASM and, if all goes well, I’ll have the new N-Tech Jets Panther on display (and maybe flying, we’ll see how it goes).
This is a fun event and this year’s BBQ will be AWESOME!
I hope to see everyone there!
The new ASM 120″ B17G took “best detailed ARF” and took a prize for best Multi-Engine aircraft at the 1/8th Airforce Event in AZ.

UP-DATE – Flown by Larry Wolfe of Jet Hangar Hobbies (an official Airtronics and ASM dealer), the B-17G took two more awards this weekend at the Jerry Ortego Memorial Fun Fly 2010 sponsored by the Scale Squadron of So. CA.

ASM is proud to have Larry Wolfe and JHH on the Team. Larry sure flew the B17G superbly this last weekend. Thank you to the Scale Squadron and Larry Wolfe for a great a event and a great piloting job!
Jet Hangar Hobbies has been busy! They’re not just out having a good time flying R/C jets, they’re out showing the world our hobby!
Larry and Cyndy Wolfe along with Vic Solotoff (fellow modeler and life-long educator/teacher/administrator) have been showing the world of model aviation to elementary school children.
Larry sent me a GREAT overview so I’ll just reprint it here. Hats off to them!
I want to thank you for your donation of 24 Guillow’s Starfire gliders for a summer school demonstration and flight contest.
Our traveling field trip entourage consisting of Vic Solotoff, my wife Cyndy, and myself. Recently we went to Aloha Elementary School in Lakewood, CA, to introduce 27 3rd-4th grade students to the basics of aviation. Our static display included a 16-1/2″ (electric R/C) Hellcat and a JHH FJ-2 Fury (50-1/2″ span). Our flight demonstration was an Air Hog indoor electric helicopter.
After a short introduction, the students were divided into 4 groups; colored arm bands were given out to identify each group. With an adult assistant assigned to each table, the children were taken through the steps of folding the same paper airplane; they colored and personalized their own. Once finished, each group was called up to make a couple of practice tosses. The objective for the paper airplanes was to fly the longest distance. Following the practice, on the count of three, each group tossed their airplanes in the semi-finals with their friends and teammates cheering them on. The winner from each group toss competed in the finals.
Ready for the semi-finals
Next the balsa gliders were handed out. The kids assembled them and added their own “color and markings.” Again they went through the process of having a fly-off; this time the objective was endurance. A tie-breaker flyoff was held to determine a winner between two that hit the wall at the same time!
Getting ready for the final toss. Yellow group getting instruction
The activity was very well suited to the age group (9-10 years old); the interest level was high, and the kids actually learned something in the process! The airplanes were theirs to take home and break–or enjoy as “trophies” (if they last!).
A great time was had by all–and the experience/participation is always the most important factor.
Thank you again for your contribution to aviation education.
