Click to EnlargeUpdated 5/2/11

Congratulations to Kyle and Phil Goodwine, and Frank Harris on taking 3rd in the difficult and new Unlimited class, as well as Best Four Stroke Engine Performance and finally runner up for Peoples Choice for Best Military at Top Gun 2011, with your amazing F4F-4 Wildcat. All the hard work, experience and perseverance has payed in spades.  Phil Goodwine said this about the Unlimited class competition, “The top 3 in this class were seperated by 2 points”.

 

As you may already know, Top Gun is a contest put on by world renowned builder Frank Tiano and is designed to find the best RC Scale builder/flyer in the world. If you were at the March club meeting, you got a chance to see the prized airplane, and listen to hopefuls Frank, Phil, and Kyle talk about the daunting task they undertook, and see first hand the level of craftsmanship that is required in order to be competitive and win at Top Gun.    I’m sure there will be more details to come but for now enjoy these beautiful shots of the winning F4F-4 at Top Gun, courtesy of Ken Isaac of RCUniverse.com
