  • Prize Number 3 – Tom Siler’s NXT evolution of the SUPER FR3AK! – Donated by Skip Miller Models. Skip carrys these first class USA manufactured F3K models in his store and has provided the team with one for a lucky raffle ticket buyer!!! Tom Siler has done it again and produced a simply stunning World Class F3K ship! The NXT is truly an astounding development and already gaining great respect. It is a SUPER FR3AK on steroids! Higher launches, improved handling stunning good looks, and strong (just ask those at the JEM who stood in line to throw it). It’s an all around excellent performing plane that is already leaving its mark in the F3K circuit! Great addition to the Fr3ak line, edgier performance and GREAT high wind flying. The NXT has a higher aspect and taper ratio than its predecessor. Coming in at an amazing 230-250g..
  • Winner – Steven Bixby – Ticket# 15575


  • Prize Number 4 – Tom Siler’s generosity knows no bounds as he has donated a second NXT SUPER FR3AK! – Tom’s F3K models are the best money can buy and another lucky ticket buyer will own one after the raffle.!!! The NXT has a higher launch, but still the nice circling and handling the previous Fr3aks provided. The NXT flys really nicely and it is also the prettiest plane Tom has designed so far. Yes, prettiness does not win contests, but it does not hurt either. The NXT will take any launch you can throw at it and you won’t hurt the nose on this airplane. It’s shorter and stronger than the fuselages Tom was making a year ago and he never had a failure with those either. This airframe is nearly indestructible with aero and launch loads assuming even remotely normal technique. It’s likely overbuilt. THIS is the bird you want to own – to get you where you need to be in F3K.
  • Winner – Robert Morrow – Ticket# 16556


  • Prize Number 5 – Amazing DX9 9-Channel DSMX Spektrum Transmitter from Horizon Hobby From its beginnings, the people behind Spektrum technology have constantly sought new ways to make the RC experience simpler, safer and, most of all, more fun. The DX9 is proof positive this relentless spirit of innovation lives on. Talk isn’t cheap – It’s Priceless. While the DX9 possesses a number of class-leading features, the centerpiece is it’s incredibly advanced voice alert system. In fact, with it’s lexicon of over 300 words, numbers and phrases, it’s quite possibly the most advanced system of its kind ever seen (or heard) in a handheld, 9-channel transmitter. For instance, you can program the DX9 to call out what flight mode has been chosen when switching from one to another. If an alarm goes off, the pilot won’t have to look at the display to see what’s happening. The DX9 can tell them. Including built in telemetry and a huge 250 model memory this is one amazing transmitter.
  • Winner – Jim Frahm – Ticket# 11498

Its impressive wing uses the versatile Selig SD3021 airfoil that’s proven to be excellent in model applications with lightweight, open-bay construction by offering good low speed characteristics, as well as the ability to move quickly from thermal to thermal. The contour of the molded fiberglass fuselage is sleek yet provides ample room for its pushrods to run internally and still have room for a powerful Li-Po motor battery.

Flown by many of the British and American aces of the time, it was instrumental in regaining and maintaining Allied air superiority from 1917 through war’s end. Now you can take to the skies with this outstanding sport scale recreation of the ParkZone® RAF S.E.5a. Its winning combination of scale realism and easy-going flight characteristics will capture the heart of everyone who loves aviation classics.
