April member meeting featured Lucien Miller of Innov8tive Designs
It is rare when you can keep the attention of our meeting members for more than 3 minutes but our guest speaker on April 3rd had us riveted to his presentation for a full hour. Lucien Miller is the owner and President of Innov8tive Designs in Vista, California. He took this opportunity not merely to advertise his products but primarily to educate us on the hows and whys of model power systems. We all have bits and pieces of information on electric power systems for model aircraft but after Lucien's presentation we had the facts on how to select a proper power system for our own models. The lecture was reinforced with a Powerpoint presentation and a couple of handouts with all the important points to remember.You can download the 2 documents here.

It's difficult not to notice Lucien's dedication to educating the modeling public. In addition to giving informative lectures, he has a youtube channel for innov8tive and lots of good info on their company sales website at innov8tivedesigns,com. Our next club newsletter will have more details on Lucien and Innov8tive Designs.
Site Operating Procedures:
We have designed this web site to accommodate three groups of users: visitors, members, and officers. Nearly all of this site is public and may viewed by any visitor. There is no need to register as a visitor, as nothing will come of it. Members, including officers are invited to register on their first visit, and then employ their User Name and Password each time they return. Allow 24 hours before member access is implemented.
|Members will then have access to a special page that contains member confidential documents and forms. Officers will be able to view all member pages plus several pages of officer confidential documents, forms, and executive information.
All viewers are invited to peruse the tabs beneath our beautiful banner, and the sub pages shown beneath the tabs. Some outstanding technical documents on soaring, electric power, and model aircraft design are included. Sources for analysis programs, components, and links to other model clubs in the Southern California area are also provided.
Fairview Park is a public flying site, and does not require HSS membership to fly there. However a City of Costa Mesa flying permit is required, and every pilot must have some form of public liability insurance. Being an AMA member is most highly recommended. See the Rules for details.
We do not copyright any material or photographs, so copies may be made by any viewer. All are invited to comment or report problems to the web site administrator.
