Illini Super Jets

August 2014

By Dustin Buescher

  This end of August event offers a break from the Florida heat and a chance for me to visit family and friends.  This year my good friend Greg Arnette joined me on my annual venture. Together we brought  6 planes, burned over 35 gallons of jet fuel, and had a great time. Around 40 pilots in attendance make this a very pilot friendly event. We are already making plans for next year's trip.

Greg Arnette brings home the "Best Military Jet" Award with his BVM 1/5.8 Cougar. Greg trusts a KingTech K-100G in his new favorite.
CD of the event, Chris Huhn thoroughly enjoyed his KingTech powered 1/6th F-16.
Vernon Montgomery is all smiles as he prepares his 1/5th F-86 for
another flight.
F-104's are easy to fly or at least Scott Harris makes it look that way. Scott chooses a KingTech K-180G for power.
Richard Buescher, Dustin's father, got some stick time on the new Cougar. JetCat P-100RX is plenty of power.
Mike McConville showed us some new moves with Richard Buescher's General Dynamics scheme F-16. KingTech K-140G is plenty of push.
Erin Jessewin of Spektrum RC made his first two turbine flights at the event using Spektrum's wireless buddy link.
Steve Ellzey took a ride on Dustin's T-Bird. He was very impressed.
Greg Wright and David Payne caught prepping the F-100 for another flight. An in-the-field swap left this plane powered by a new
KingTech K-140G.
The "Three Amigos" put on several formation "Clinics" with their Hawks. These guys are good or really lucky!

Mike McConville really enjoys his Hawk and it shows. He must have 300 flights on it by now.
Larry Grela from Plainfield, Il took a test ride on Dustin's demo plane. This could make for a great second jet.
