So, the 2016 Top Gun Scale Invitational held on Paradise Field in Lakeland, FL is now in the history books and our big, detailed 26 page extravaganza will be featured in the upcoming August issue of Model Airplane News. The whole MAN Team worked extremely hard to get the coverage done and we are sure you will love the article. Special thanks to our great contributors and photographers David Hart, Carl Layden, Rich Uravitch, and Barry Vaught for capturing all the amazing flight photos.
Here are some unpublished photos from the event as well as Gerry Yarrish’s sneak peek video from the flightline.
