Recent Changes to the web site

Update 8-14-2010: I added a gallery of AMA Museum picture I took when I was there in late July. The site was down for a couple of days early this month while it was relocated to a new web hosting service. Gone is the free ride we had with our previous private hosting service. The new service is $55.00 per year which entitles us unlimited space and unlimited bandwidth.
Update 6-20-2010: The videos page was updated with the recent YouTube videos that have been emailed out to the members.
Update 1-25-2010: I added some pictures of Chris Bottomly's new SIST Focke-Wulf 190. It is one of the most detailed kits ever produced.
Update 12-28-2009: 4 new countries were added to the list: Antarctica, Antigua and Barbuda, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda. There was only one hit from Antarctica. I'm not sure if this is one of those freak connections, but it's pretty cool to think that there is some RC'er doing a stint in Antarctica and happened on our site. The Congo and Uganda hits were probably looking for sites to hack and exploit.
Update 11-29-2009: Russell's huge Fokker DR1 completed it's maiden flight on Nov 21. Video link and pics added to the main page. 11 new countries were added to the list since the last update: Bahamas, Ethiopia, Iraq, Kygyrzstan, Liechtenstein, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nepal, Nicaragua, Northern Mariana Islands, Virgin Islands. That brings the total to 150. Full List.
Update 8-29-2009: There were a few maiden flights today: Chris' TBM Zero and Dick's Super Falcon.
Ghana and Myanmar visited the website. 139 countries. Full List.
Update 8-23-2009: Luis maidened his new BVM Kingcat today controlled by a new JR 2.4 radio. It was a relatively short flight. Two new countries visited the website: Brunei Darussalam and Bangladesh make 137 countries!
Update 8-12-2009: Chris Bottomly sent some YouTube video links via email and I added them to the front page of the web site so everyone can see them. Thanks, Chris.
Note: There is an archive link at the bottom of the main page that has many of the pictures and features that have been on the main page.
Update 8-2-2009: Thursday night, I started working to replicate the t-shirt artwork that Richard had done on our t-shirts. I finished it Saturday afternoon and put it up on the website as the banner. It didn't have the radio waves though. Saturday night, I added the radio waves and decided to make a Flash animation for the banner. It's made up of over 150 individual images playing at 24 per second. Let me know what you think!
Update 7-29-2009: I was browsing on RCGroups and found pictures of the Mac Hodges Jet Flyin'. Luis' ducted fan and Flash, Randy's T-45 and Richard's Viper were among the pictures I found. Unfortunately, I did not see Dick's Falcon or Guy's ShockJet.
Update 7-25-2009: There is a series of images on the front page of what appears to be an Avro Vulcan meeting its demise. It is obvious to me that this was a seasoned photographer because he had the presence of mind to stay on the shutter and capture all the action. I took the 6 pictures and turned them into a slide show. So many times, I see videos where the person lowers the camera so they can see what is happening. Little do they realize that if they kept their focus, they can watch the action again and share it with the rest of the world.
Several countries were added to the list: Angola, Gibraltar, Libia and San Marino. Full List.
Update 5-18-2009: Quite a few countries have visited the site since the last update: Belize, Chad, Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire), Lebanon, Mauritius, Sri Lanka.
Update 3-29-2009: I added a video of a crazy commercial pilot making a low pass and nearly scraping a wing on the ground in a turn. I can't imagine this pilot is still flying passenger planes after this stunt. The 125th country visited our site; Zambia.
Update 3-22-2009: Changed the Plane of the Day picture to a Transavia PL-12 Airtruk.
Update 3-20-2009: I forgot to add Kasakhstan as a visting country in February. That makes 124 countries. There are 195 countries on the planet. An interesting bit of information is that there are only 192 member nations in the United Nations. Full List.
Updated 3-16-2009: I added a Plane of the Day page to the web site. I have collected many interesting pictures over the years and I thought I would share them with everyone.
The new countries have been few and far between recently. However, New Caledonia visited the site on 3/13/3009.
Update 2-14-2009: I added two YouTube videos to the middle of the main page. One landing video has a Dash 7 slamming into the runway at London City Airport and the other video is of a typical landing in Honduras.
Update 1-29-2009: I added a Calendar page to the site. It is on its own page and can be found by clicking the Calendar button on the left site of the main page. Several more countries have visited our site: Cayman Islands, Swaziland, Azerbaidjan. This makes 121 countries that have visited our website!
Update 1-9-2009: A new gallery for 4th Quarter 2008 was added to the photo gallery and it contains 127 images. 39 new planes were added to the Our Planes album.
Update 11-24-2008: Changes were made to the main page. The items that were removed were relocated to the Archive page. Two new countries visited our site. Suriname and Cuba.
Update 11-22-2008: I added some Flash animation to the main page. If a bar appears at the top of your browser window saying something about active content, click on the bar and choose "Allow active content". Click on the Replay link to replay the animation.
Update 11-2-2008: I put two jet videos out on Youtube for Luis and Richard. The videos were too big to email. Several new countries visited out site: Gorgia, Oman, Belarus and Togo. This makes 115. Full List.
Update 10-12-2008: I added a prop to the background of the logo. I finally found a prop I could work with after looking through some 3-views I had. This one came from a P-63 Airacobra. I am working on another idea for a logo. I'll post it as soon as I complete it. Feedback is nice.
Update 10-10-2008: Added three videos to the main page. They feature full scale planes.
Update 10-9-2008: What do you think of the logo I came up with?
Update 10-7-2008: I had to rebuild the entire main page. I made so many changes to it over the past 8 months that it wasn't behaving like it should. Buttons would spread apart when I added a picture or color changes wouldn't apply to the entire page. You will see a few more buttons on the left side of the page; Turbine Jet Page, Calendar, For Sale, News and TRCF Discussion Page. Other forthcoming additions to the front page will include a few recent pictures and video taken at the field. It is a living, breathing document.
The For Sale page and News page may not be a permanent part of the website because of the TRCF Discussion page. The title may change as well. It is a forum similar to RCUniverse or RCGroups and it can contain threads that have news and for sale sections. It doesn't have any content at this point and I don't remember what the administrator login is to set up member logins. I'll let everyone know when it is ready. Who knows, it may not be something that is actively used.
I'll tell you guys that it's a challenging and time-consuming effort to keep the content of this website dynamic and interesting. I do enjoy hearing from you about something I added to the website. It is rewarding for me to put this site together and keep it alive for the members. I see it as a place for non-active members to see what is happening at the field when they can't be there themselves. It's a place to tell your family and friends to go look at what you like to do on the weekends and see the planes you fly.
If you would like to contribute anything to the website, please let me know. It can be in the form of pictures of past planes or fly-ins, something about yourself for your member page(hint), what you liked or disliked about a past or present plane or maybe it's something as simple as what happened last weekend at the field. That might be a good candidate for a thread on the new forum page. It can even be constructive criticism. I won't pout too much.
This isn't just my website. It's the club's website and I, and others I'm sure, would appreciate some content contribution. Hell, Dick can do a segment on our lawn mower; how long have we had it, what are it's idiosyncrasies, why is the engine exposed, can we take some of the play out of the steering, the battles we've had with wasps? You know, stuff like that. I think that would be interesting. I'll pump Dick for some information. (that didn't sound good, did it?)
We have a new country visit our site: Honduras. This brings the count to 111 countries. Full List
Update 9-30-2008: A few more pictures were added to the front page from last weekend's flying. I also submitted a request to change the link to our website from the AMA website. The link originally went to Randy's email address, which they fat-fingered. Instead of flyby133, it was flybx133. Here is the link to the AMA Charter Club search. If you put 29841 in the zip code search, our club is the first in the list. The email contact is still Randy's email address.
Update 9-28-2008: Picture of Richard's Bandit added to front page and a link to the retouched picture of Russell's Bearcat (amusing). Two new albums were added to the photo gallery. 123 images have been uploaded to the Second Quarter album and 90 images were added to the Third Quarter album.
Update 9-22-2008: A new jet page was introduced to TRCF. Since turbines seem to be getting popular with the club, I felt there should be a page(s) dedicated to them. Sunday, Guy's ShockJet would not recover from a spin. There was no fire...the fuel tank did not rupture and it appears that there was very little damage to the turbine. It was sent back to be checked out.
A 41 minute video of general flying was given to club members on Sunday. If you would like one, email me and I will get it to you.
Update 9-20-2008: Some 30+ year old pictures of Dick and Richard Prouty were added to the web site. The countries of Anguilla, Costa Rica, Peru and Yemen visited our site in the last 15 days. It brings to total to 110 countries. FULL LIST . A video of Mac Hodges B28 crash on Sept, 13th in Kentucky was added to the top of the page.
Update 9-14-2008: A picture of Richard's Viper jet kit was added to the bottom of the front page. A graph showing the altitude of David's Dallaire over its 25+ minute flight.
Update 9-7-2008: Several "phrases heard at the field" were added to the Who Are We page. Turbine-powered planes are becoming very popular at our field. Some are already are working on their second plane! The first autogyro flies at TRCF. Steve crashed it on the first flight and it suffered very little damage. The second flight on the next day was successful after trimming and the landing rollout was only inches.
Update 9-2-2008: John Ramsey sent us a note from England. It's good to hear from him. Morocco was the latest country to visit our site. 106 Countries now. FULL LIST.
Update 8-13-2008: Main page updated with TRCF Jets! The club went from no turbines to three in less than 45 days. There are a lot of planes for sale on RCU now.
Added 7-26-2008: Cambodia and Syria.
Added 7-20-2008: A major change to the Classic Pattern Page was done over my vacation last week. I created a page for each letter of the alphabet...nearly every letter. It will make adding planes and navigation easier and more intuitive. Afghanistan, Maldives, Macedonia, Botswana, Bolivia, Kenya and El Salvador visited our site since July 2. Maldives is a country of 1192 islands and islets on the east of Africa in the Indian Ocean. Macedonia is a region consisting of six Balkan countries: Greece, Republic of Macedonia, Bulgaria and minor parts of Albania, Serbia, and Kosovo. FULL LIST.
Added 7-2-2008: 109 images from our visit to Joe Nall 2008 were added to the Gallery page. It looked like it was going to be a sparse showing, but as the day progressed, more and more planes appeared.
Two new countries visited our site: Algeria and Malta.
Added 6-30-2008: 4 new countries have been added to the list: Laos, Mali, Qatar and Zimbabwe.This brings the total to 94 countries. FULL LIST
Added 6-15-2008: On June 10th, we exceeded ONE MILLION HITS to our website! A video and pictures of Randy's new Wren 54-powered Boomerang jet were added to the front page for all to see and drool over. Two new countries were added to the list: Bosnia-Herzegovina and Paraguay. I don't know if the Bosnia hits were genuine hits or fishing attempts to do a little mischief.
Added 6-7-2008: 4 more countries visited TRCF since the last change: Barbados, Guam, Sudan and United Arab Emirates.
Added 5-24-2008: I added the pictures from the First Quarter 2008 to the photo gallery. Three more countries visited the website: Dominican Republic, Lithuania and Tunisia.
Added 5-20-2008: Puerto Rico, Netherland Antilles and Trinidad and Tobago are the newest countries to visit our web site. Trinidad and Tobago are achieved independence from the UK in 1962. This brings the total to 81 countries. FULL LIST

Added 2-27-2009: 129 pictures were added to the gallery in the 2nd Quarter 2007 album. TrentonRCFlyers' web site was visited by Macau, once a colony of Portugal until late 1999, is now a Special Administrative Region of China. I learned that Hong Kong is also a Special Administrative Region of China.
Added 3-24-2008: Paraguay was a recent visitor to the web site. 71 and counting. I have uploaded pictures from the first quarter of 2007. They are in chronological order. I stripped out a few duplicates, but they all should be there. Oddly enough, the title of the album is 1st Quarter 2007.
Added 3-18-2008: I updated the charter and insurance document on the Charter Page. Pakistan and the Slovak Republic are recent visitors to our site. That makes 70 countries.
Added 2-15-2008: Irie Man! Jamaica and the Phillipines are the latest new visitors to our site. The Phillipines visit is like the Iran visit on 1/25. Jamaica was a legitimate visit with 96 hits. (a hit is any access or request made to a web page)
Added 2-14-2008: Happy Valentines Day! I hope you were nice to your better-halves. Mine was pleased. Well, I have put together another crash video and put the link on the main page with an accompanying prologue. This one is of John Ramsey's cargo plane crash. Read the prologue. Watch the guy in the pink hat flinch when the plane hits the trees.
Added 2-8-2008: I updated the Who Are We page so it isn't so plain. I will do the same with the other pages.
Added 2-4-2008: I finished the main page and uploaded it to the site. I am pretty excited about it. Hopefully, it will display properly on everyone's computer. It should. We have 38,000+ hits as of 2/5! Were on course to equal the number of his we had in January, 180,000. For comparison, we only had 15,000+ hits for the month of December. I added a few more planes to the Classic Pattern Plane Image Base page 4. John Ramsey's yellow and white Eureka Troubleshooter was added to the gallery.
Added 2-3-2008: Saudi Arabia came to TrentonRCFlyers. FULL LIST. I am working on a re-write of the main page of the website. I have heard from some of the members that the existing main page doesn't display properly. It was getting more difficult to update because I used a template for the main page and it was difficult to customize. I should be able to replace the current page on the 3rd of February.
Added 2-1-2008: Iran made a brief visit to our web site. There were three hits for a total of 18k...a very small amount of data. Too small to be a picture, so I suspect that it was some sort of website crawler that looks for vulnerabilities. I'll wait to see if the statistic for this country changes. I don't think it was a legitimate visit.
Added 1-25-2008: Luxembourg visited our website today. FULL LIST
Added 1-25-2008: Ecuador stopped by TRCF. FULL LIST
Added 1-22-2008: I added a few pages to the Members section under the Who are we? link at the top of the page. Let me know what you think of the format and provide me with some information about yourself. I don't want to make something up. :-)
Added 1-20-2008: Individual(s) from Ireland and Slovenia have been to TrentonRCFLyers.com. 25% of the worlds countries have visited our site! We have just under 100,000 hits so far this month. The classic pattern planes image base has been received quite well. We finally have made a valid contribution to the RC community, albeit to one group within. Nonetheless, it has generated quite an interest. Here is a link to the thread on RCUniverse. I have also added a "Sign our Guestbook" item next to TrentonFlyers on the top menu. Try it out. It leaves a post on the screen and allow others to read guestbook items.
Added 1-16-2008: Three new countries have visited our site, Bahrain, Columbia and Guatemala. FULL LIST
Much to the enjoyment of the Classic Pattern Flyers of RC Universe, I have assembled all my classic pattern plane pictures into one gallery. 128 different planes are collected in one place for the browsing enjoyment of the world! Last month we had 15,959 hits on our website by 640 unique visitors. As of today, we have had 38,253 hits by 536 visitors, and the month isn't over. Dang!
Added 1-5-2008: Guy's Tri Pacer suffered a near-catastrophe when the left wing panel bolts let loose 2/3rds through the landing roll-out. What a save! Video
Added 1-1-2008: A new gallery was added to the Photo Gallery Page, "4th Quarter Pictures". It currently consists of 44 pictures taken at the field during the 4th quarter...September 1 to December 31. Expect more soon. This will be the format for general pictures taken at the field in the future unless the picture content dictates its own gallery. The "Our Planes" gallery will be continually updated as planes come and go. I will try to move pictures taken at the field in 2007 to their own quarter gallery. I may do the same with earlier pictures as well. This way, we will have a good idea when the picture was taken and have some organization. I still have many pictures to add to the gallery and I will alert you on this page. Please send me pictures that you want to add to the web site. These can be images of planes you have that are not in the "Our Planes" gallery or any other image related to your RC experience. You can submit an article of interest to be posted on the "articles" page that you think others will find interesting or useful. This is our website. We determine its content. If you would like to see something added to the site, please let me know.
