Control Line Stunt Pattern Flown at Hobby Park, NC

I don't recall ever seeing a video of the AMA control line stunt pattern being flown while a narrator announces each maneuver and describes how it should look. BJM Enterprises owner Bill Mandakis tells the story while I video the flight. Bill is an avid C/L stunt flier and meets a couple times a week with a local cadre of club members at Hobby Park in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Enterprise-E from BJM EnterprisesAs time permits (which unfortunately is not very often), I am currently building an electric-powered Enterprise-E control line model that was designed by and is kitted by Bill. Conveniently, he lives just a couple miles from me, so sage advice is available when needed. The wing is on the building board now and is going together nicely. I bought the motor, controller, and battery setup that was specified uniquely for the Enterprise-E. A full write--up on the process, along with photos, will be posted once it is complete, so stay tuned. 

I will eventually have a complete write-up of the Enterprise-E construction project, but for now you can follow the progress by the photos posted.

There is a lot of good information and there are lot of pictures throughout the website that you will probably find useful, and might even bring back some old memories from your own days of yore. The website began life around 1996 as an EarthLink screen name of ModelAirplanes, and quickly grew to where more server space ...
