  6. From our Friends at Flex and Randy's Hobby


    We've been a Flex Dealer for a few months now and the response has been pretty darn good. Randy and I have been plotting to attend the Icehouse Fly-in for some time now but have never gotten our schedules to fit. Hearing the pilot count for last year and all the fun that's been going on has made it a priority to pencil this get-together in on our calendar. We wanted to attend but we put our heads together to put a little more "pop" in the proceedings.

    A phone call to the boys at Flex Innovations seemed the right thing to do and we were rewarded with the offer to send over a company pilot with somewhat of a reputation to give us some demo time with a Mamba. We let Roman know what we were doing and he invited us to put a little notice here on the thread. Well.....
    How 'bout letting the cat out of the bag and telling all of you that Mr. Seth Arnold will be doing some of that patented "Chalupa" stuff over the skies of Apache Pass on Friday September 30th and Saturday October 1st. If anybody can put on a show and bend the sticks accordingly it would be him!

    Some of you have been wanting some of the fine products Flex Innovations has to offer and Randy's Hobbies is gonna help make that happen. Not quite sure the Mambas will be back in stock or if the new Cessna 170 will have arrived by the time the Icehouse Fly-in is held but we'll do a pre-order for any Flex Product from now till about a week to ten days before the fly-in date. Get your order in that early and we'll deliver any in stock item to our booth at the fly-in.
    So..... There ya have it. Ice House Fly-in.... Seth bending the sticks..... food, fun frolick. Flex stuff delivered. What the heck ya waiting for? Be there!
