    Default Flyboyz Race Camp 2018

    Starting this thread to show what we going on here in tx, we have knottygirl going through a complete redo , new wing new vertical and some new body part to keep her in the gold.
    Justin is here with his new racer called limitless, it's a snoshoo with hand controls and a new catto wing, going to be a real contender, it has hand controls because Justin is in a chair.
    Yves will be here with his new to him racer Outrageous, not much to do to it other than fly it , it is already a very fast plane. Yves is from the UK.
    Enrico will be here with his new to him racer , it is a cassutt with an owl wing it looks like it will be a fun little airplane, it is called Spirit Of Turin and they are from Italy .
    Jason Barksdale a last years rookie who flew Tony the Tiger will be here with his new racer that doesn't have a name yet, it is a cassutt with a catto wing, hasn't raced before so this will be very exciting, those that don't know Jason he was hit by the ghost in 2011 and was told he wouldn't walk again but here he is racing in the very event that almost killed him.😎Not to bad
    One of my local friends Heath Glenn has bought a new to him racer that will be finished very soon and he will be attending PRS this year with his plane.
    We also have Annie #17 that was Carl Swenson airplane, I will prob be flying it this year also.
    I have rented an old military alert hangar so we have plenty of room, could prob fit around 20 racers and my trainer

    Thanks for all the updates. The F1's have always raced around the world when nothing else did. Are they having a PRS this year in Reno as the were suppose to redo runways?

    Yes, there will be PRS this year in June. They found a work around to get it done even with the construction.

    Annie is just waiting on her engine refresh to be completed, and Knotty Girl's new wing is getting finished.

    To be determined. A lot depends on when repairs can be completed. Tony was damaged in transport to Thailand for the Airrace1 event.

    After completing a short test hop down the runway a few days ago, Justin Meaders made his first full flight in "Limitless" today. More video to come, but here's a look at the landing. https://vimeo.com/252406639
