    He built a Airdale. He had a 0200 in it. That also is a nice airplane. His son has it now.

    Jim,
    Ron was a good friend of mine also. He was my Avid go to guy. He helped quite a few guys build and fix their Avids.  I also flew his airplane. It was a nice flying plane. Over the years he started with the speed wing and 503. That combo didn't work at all. Next came the 532 which was a bad choice.  Finally he installed the 582, then came the extended speed wing. This combination made a real good airplane. He loved the 582. He always told me it was "bullet proof ".
    He did know how to fly behind a 2 stroke. Sure miss him.

    We will be out Friday before the show. We can rope a area off for you if you want. I would bring shorts and light shirts along with pants long sleeve shirts and coats. Weather can be 100 degrees down to 50 degrees at night. Just depends on the weather pattern. Sunscreen for sure!

    We are camped in the same area as Larry and his wife. Larry, Thursday sounds like a much better night for the party.

    My wife and I will be there 10 days. We will be camping on the private farm across the road from the red barn by the Fun Fly Zone runway.

    The Bandits serial number ends with a E. The Bandit is a MK4, but without the fiberglass leading edge, fiberglass seat, no finished interior. In other words a stripped down version of the MK4. My Bandit still has the .083 wing spar and the 7/8" lift struts.

    Got my airplane home today
    Now there is enough snow to keep my Bandit at home. More snow coming tomorrow. Got to wash the dust off and installed my tailwheel ski. All I have to do is taxi down the road and fly out of my neighbors field across the road.

    Remote control outlet
    Is there a remote outlet control I could put in my hanger outlet and turn it on with my phone to preheat my Champ while driving to the airport?

    No Jim I haven't bought skis for my Champ yet. Some day I would like to find a used set of Tric Air skis for it. Lots of 1500s out there, but it would be a pain using them at our airport.
