News for the F3B community:
There is a new Goodrum F3B pilot!!
Congratulation to Michelle, Craig and their family from all of us
Check the "Now this is a transmitter" picture (and a few more)
Or even the new site www.f3x.za.org
For those that don't know Michelle and Craig are the nicest and best husband and wife pilots we can think of. There is always a smile on their face and though they are always the last in bed they still rage the top of the lists in F3B and F3J World Championships.
Now remember the name Mathew...
