Proposed New Rules

Dear Members,

The risks as we see them are:

M-133 Scratch Build EAA Article

Big news for Marymoor R/C: youth members Ian Morrow and Hailin Truman joined forces with member Bryan Connelly to create one massive yet incredibly light scratch build. The design ultimately became roughly based on a C-133 (long nose with a large tail) and was successfully maidened last month. It ended up being named M-133 (short for 'Mudgy', a name Bryan came up with for his numerous STOL scratch builds he's created).
