    So Daniel Holman is a well known name in our 3D world. He has won tons of comps, been on the podium at XFC a few times, 4 time winner of the PNW Freestyle etc, etc, etc.... We all know him as an all around great guy that holds himself to some very high standards and gives all the glory of his accomplishments to God. I met him and his brother last year at Wenatchee and we quickly became friends. He dropped out of this years XFC for a chance to go to work in Alaska for an aviation outfit up there. I was able to catch up with him a few weeks ago to check and see how he's doing and when (or if) he will be returning home (Washington). I couldn't get the if or the when out of him but he is clearly having a great time. Not only is he working on full scale aircraft in only what can be described as God's country he is also getting time on the sticks and solo'd not to long ago! Here are a few videos from Daniel in Alaska! @danielph We all wish you well!

    I didn't know that EF made a 88" Extra, is it a older plane?

    Yup! I used to own an EF 88" Extra 300 with a DA50 in it with the same scheme. I should say I think that was the only scheme it came in. I absolutely loved that plane and I sold it to another guy in my club so I get to visit her once in a while. :-D

    Ya, I was hoping that by signing it, it would somehow fly like it did in his tribute video, sadly it no longer does

    don't know how to get videos to come up in the post

    (fixed the video-in-post issue -SnowDog)

    [just use the "video" link in the toolbar to embed videos in a post - the icon looks like a filmstrip.]
