Default Airfoilz CENTURY PROJECT: 100 different pilots

I had mentioned it in this thread here:
http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=50688

But I wanted to start a new thread inside the AirfoilZ section.




This is the first post of the AirfoilZ Century Project.

The Purpose of the ACP is to get at least 100 different pilots to fly the same airplane (hence the Century mark). With inspiration from World Globetrotter 1 (Wiggy) and Wings Across America (WAA), but with a more personal twist. The most pilots in the shortest amount of time.

Instead of sending and handing the airplane off to different pilots, I will carry the airplane with me, and personally give it to the pilots to fly.

They will fly it, then sign it, and complete a logbook entry and get a photo taken.

I will do my best to get to every event and field in the South Western USA, and get the largest number of Wattflyer pilots as possible on-board.


Here is the package AirfoilZ sent:



Super Thanks to Paul @ Airfoilz, and Scott at Polk for supporting the project.



I will post build photos, and we will start the '100 pilot countdown' with the maiden flight.


Currently, I am in need of:

Small FM 72 mhz RX (any channel)
1800~2300 mah 3 cell (at least 20c)
Props (could use a few to find the best)
Graphic Artist (to make a logo)

If you, or anyone you know can help with those items, please hook a brother up!


AirfoilZ provided:
Edge 540 NX
Motor
Controller
Servos

Polk Provided
Seeker III Tx



As a pilot, it will cost you nothing to participate. Its purely for the fun, and notoriety of it. I will handle all the documentation and recordkeeping.



Heres to the start of a great adventure!
