XPS rocks CA JETS 2007
Darcy Wingo - Top Gun
Scott Bahde - Best EDF
Darcy Wingo burned more than 20 gallons of jet
fuel during the event. Taking the plane to extreme limits that included
slow rolls down on the deck, 3D flying, and his infamous "skid and go". He
proved that the XtremeLink« worked flawlessly in
this environment. Darcy received the event's Top Gun award.
Scott Bahde (XPS CFO/V.P.) also won an award
for the best EDF. Scott converted a normally turbine powered Skymaster F-15
into a dual EDF configuration having more than 6,500 watts of power!
