12/4/2021: USA team pilots Neal Huffman and Josh Glaab got in a solid practice session yesterday at Horsefeathers, VA. Using their 4m Xplorers and recently purchased team winch. Team helper, Chris Burns, and unofficial team engineer, Duane Beck, were also in attendance. Practice conditions were pleasant for December, with mid 50s temps and light winds. The new winch performed well and launch heights of close to 200m were reported. More reports to follow as the team gets closer to the Worlds in 2022. Please help support the team by donating to the giant RC raffle.
Amy Pool is our 4th Senior Pilot on the F3J Team as a result of the 2022 World Championship organizers adding a category for Female pilots. We are very fortunate to have Amy on the Team as she is the premier female F3J Pilot in the country and as a F3J Tour winner she clearly “has the goods” to win any F3J event. Welcome to Team USA Amy!
