ROW Float Bibliography


Not many of us get the chance to fly our models from floats, but a few of the recent Southwest Regionals contests  at Eloy, Arizona had an ROW tank set up. We had 2 events: ROW Rubber [Combined], and ROW Gas [Combined]. In addition, the tank was available for Record Trials plus sport and scale ROW model flying. In fact, 2 ROW rubber records were set before we had to abandon the pond project when the rubber liner sprang leaks. All-in-all, it was great fun!
