I was only able to stay for Saturday. The winds were light, the sun was out, the sky was clear and lots of friends all around. The Revs were out in force and for the first time Ben was in Brookings to cheer them on.

We even saw JB & JD fly dual line, plus Steve flew two Revs at the same time :wacko: what will iQuad come up with next. Amy & Connor were great as usual.

Thanks to everyone who attended and flew, it was great :)

Brookings is just such a cool event. Missed it for a few years and now we're back and hope to keep that going for some time, as we love it. The crowds are great and with them so close, it gives a very special feel to flying there. Ben flew a couple of demos and had a blast and the whole family were sad we had to leave!!

Oh, I love both dual and quad dearly... Fun (and somewhat irritable) discussion on this actually, over at GWTW. :)

http://www.gwtwforum....php?topic=3496

I get into it (and how) closer to the end. LOL

Had a lot of fun, would love to see it from the outside. :)

Wow, I actually read that whole thread on GWTW, I think somebody needs to dig up that vid with the yellow silverfox and the 1.5 doing team flying together just to get the the air cleared, and poke a little fun at the hostilities that some of those people on there seem to harbor. :) I think it was JB and Steve DeRoy flying in it.
