BCRCC John Nicolaci Float Fly

Video of the 2021 event shot from my GoPro Baseball Cap Cam

The Bristol County Radio Control Club enjoyed a day of fun for model plane enthusiasts in memory of their late member John Nicolaci at Mary’s Pond on Saturday, Aug. 21.

John first acquired use of the pond for himself and other club members 19 years ago, but passed away in 2009. Since then, club members have gathered together for a recreational “float and fly” each year to pay homage to Nicolaci.

John had many model planes over the years, but was perhaps best known for his use of the PBM Mariner. The plane was much bigger than most models, with a wingspan of 14 feet. Family members recalled the time he flew it all the way to Martha’s Vineyard.


Zynthian is an opensource project. To get information on how to buy the official kit or build a DIY version like I did visit https://zynthian.org/ for more information. Zynthian is more than just a layer driven synthesizer that supports many sampled synthesizer engines. It also features support for the setBfree Organ emulator (sounds incredible) SFIZZ I have full control with my EWI and more . Check it out. Here are just a few songs I recorded with the Zynthian

Starting the play blues progressions and getting a bit more comfortable with the EWI. I’m playing the Baritone Sax line here on the EWI and also recorded the Tenor Sax Blues improvisation on the EWI.

This is what an EWI looks like. The fingering is a cross between a saxophone, recorder, and EWI..
