Couldn't have had a better week, and I'm gushing with pride for my baby girl. She graduated from Cal with a degree in social welfare, and five days later, just got offered a new position. She's going to be following in her old man's footsteps - working as a school social worker in NYC starting next school year
Hope everyone else is having an equally awesome week!

Really, really, really happy. Would've sat in the living room playing with this thing all night, but alas, she had to hide in the garage to avoid a spotting by 'The Boss'. Somehow I'll ease her into the rotation of "$50" and, ""I traded for that" planes (any tips from the flying peanut gallery?).

Here's the specs:

-Extreme Jets 80MM Alloy Wemotec 8S fan/motor setup. Here's a link to fan/motor:
-JR R921X receiver
-Castle ICE 100 with Castle BEC Pro
-Gens Ace 4000 25C 4S packs x 2
-JR Sport MC35 servos all-around and JR 368 for the rudder
-Stock E-flite retracts and struts

Zoom Zoom.

Took my momma up in a 172 last night - snapped a couple photos and a video. Fun times playing around the pattern in the waning sunlight.
Thursday I take the same plane to Tahoe to visit the old man - excited!
