This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Jeff Anderson with his Sig Riser 100 built from a Sig kit! He extended the wingspan to 110"! His 110" Riser sports a 35/36 1050kV motor swinging an 11x7 prop (he may up the size of the prop after initial flights). Power is supplied by a 3-cell, 2100mAh LiPo via a 50A esc. Ready-to-fly weight is 53 ounces. His glider even includes a telemetry system! Jeff wins a $50 gift certificate from Anchorage House of Hobbies!
JBER RC REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! The military implemented a new regulation as of late December 2015 that closes JBER RC field when the base is at threat level FPCON B (which it is currently) or higher. Do not attempt to go out there for any reason until further notice. We will be able to fly on base again when the threat level is lowered or when they change that policy. Base Ops and security has been alerted to not allow anybody to fly out there.
