Charlie’s AMR trainer now is powered by a combustion engine. The plane gained two pounds but you would not know it. The ZDZ 80 engine exhaust exits into two “Pitts” style mufflers, then into two tuned pipes. The effect is a VERY QUIET tow plane. How about a three-blade prop?
20 Kokam cells are powering this electrical assist for full scale gliders. Pictures are here.

We are back with more F3K fun, excitement and camaraderie at our incomparable, immaculately maintained and centrally located flying field, right here in northern Delaware!
Sponsored by the >Silent Knights Soaring Society at our Big Pond flying site in the White Clay Creek State Park. If you haven’t seen our field you will love it. Check out the interactive photo taken by our resident photographer extraordinaire John Kirchstein, at last year’s ESL TD contest.
Awards for Expert, Sportsman and Novice each day, as well as ESL points toward your yearly standing. AMA sanctioned and, most importantly, lunch will be provided.
We even found a nice, cheap place for you to stay. A Super 8 Motel that’s in the beautiful college town of Newark, Delaware. The rooms are either $76 or $81 a night plus tax. Here’s a link to the motel and here are the directions from the SKSS field to the Super 8 Motel.
Restaurants, bars and coeds. It’s just like heaven, only better.
Register with the ESL here.
Directions to the field. Right –click on the blue, L-shaped, field and select “Directions-to-here”.
