Professional Pilot Joe Smith Fly’s His Way Through SEFF 2012
One of our most prestigious sponsored pilots, Joe Smith, recently attended one of the largest electric flight events of the year, SEFF 2012. The event was held on Monday, April 23 and went through Sunday the 29th. Located in the open areas of Americus Georgia, at the Mac Hodge’s field, 407 registered pilots from all around the country showed up to participate in one of the greatest electric fun fly events known as the Southeast Electric Flight Festival (SEFF).
During the week Joe had the opportunity to really push the provided battery packs to their ultimate performance. When speaking with Joe about the power behind the Gens ace and Sky Lipo batteries, he stated “I couldn't have been any happier with the performance these packs delivered. One main aspect of these packs that just sticks out to me is there ability to hold voltage underload.”
As a top tier pilot within the industry, Joe is constantly forced to push his equipment to the limit. From hovering on spot to Rollers on the deck, Joe’s planes require a large amount of power like his 104” Slick, which is pulling over 140 Amps at 12S. “With my flying style, it is very important to me that the batteries don't continue to drop voltage under load, I push the packs hard and my flying requires my components to be top of the line. From the lightest 2 cell packs to the big 6 cell packs they deliver what I need; performance, fast charging, High C rating, and most of all dependability with a constant voltage throughout the flight.” Joe stated, “I am privileged to represent these battery packs and have received many comments from other pilots about how they liked their Sky Lipo and Gens Ace packs. When someone asks me what batteries I recommend, I tell them the ones I fly, Sky Lipo and Gens Ace packs. I enjoy promoting this great product and I thank HobbyPartz.com for allowing me to do so.”
Overall the event was a big success with some of the top pilots in the nation showing off there talents and planes. The Noon demos were fantastic and the Night flying was top notch. The SEFF event is one of Joe’s biggest events of the year and he is planning on attending many more events for the upcoming future. Next Stop is the world’s largest RC Show- Joe Nall. With Joe’s skills and continuous talents, we are proud to present him as a great representative and sponsor of HobbyPartz, Gens Ace, and Sky Lipo.
