Modifications made to "Building Floats" R/C Model Aircraft
Sunday, 17. July 2011 - 18:33 Uhr
Yesterday we went to a private grass airstrip to fly our R/C planes. This was my 2nd time being there, but what made this trip extra special was meeting Rolf Dunder.
Rolf is a German glider pilot and has a hangar at the airstrip. Rolf took me on a tour of the hangar to see his planes. He has 2 gliders, a single seater and a 2 seater. He also has an ultra light called Fascination. Other equipment seen were a power winch for launching the gliders and a trailer to carry the glider back home after a cross country trip. All of his planes were imported. We had long talks and topped the day off with an excellent dinner at a seafood restuarant near Tarlac.
Rolf has a website called Gliders Philippines

Today I made contact again with Steve Forte. http://www.stevefortegps.com/
I met Steve, a very special and talented guy, in the early 80's near the end of his "career" and we worked a few projects together. If we had met ten years earlier, we would have filled up a big room with Benjamin Franklins? I hope to hook up with Steve during my next visit to the States so we can chop up some old stories and chow down some pasta?

Well it has been awhile, here in the Philippines we have only a few internet providers ranging from BAD to WORSE. After 5 weeks of being offline, we finally have internet again.
I have uploaded some new pictures at PicasaWeb.Google.Net/MartyPetriSr

Sunday, March 27, 2011 the guys got together for a Fun Fly at Binalonan Airport. The airport is privately owned by WCC company, which operates a flight school and Aircraft Technology School. The school and airport are closed on Sundays so they allow us to use the runway to fly our models there.
