Posted by 1987tc | Apr 22, 2011 @ 06:59 PM | 4,468 Views
Just got this from a friend. Old but wood looks good still. Decals look good too.
Not sure what to do with it. No way am I going to be building it.
Started to list it in the classifieds but not sure where to list it!
Suggestions? Offers?

Take a look at the picture. First one to name it correctly wins a life time supply of propwash!

Ok so you don't really win anything except the deep satisfaction that you got it right!

I have posted this in the past. But since we are getting ready for ODB3 I think it is time to re post it.

A FRIEND OF MINE HAD THIS IN HIS BLOG AND IT IS SO TRUE ...THE THINGS WE GO THROUGH ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS ..IF YOU CARE AT ALL EVEN JUST A TEENY BIT YOU WILL TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS.



I have MS also and what is said here is so very true!

Understanding What Having MS Means


Having MS means many things change, and a lot of them are invisible. Unlike having cancer or being hurt in an accident, most people do not understand even a little about MS and it's effects on us; and many of those who think they do know are actually misinformed. In the spirit of informing those who wish to understand...

These are the things that I would like you to understand about me before you judge me:

Please understand that being sick does not mean I'm no longer a human being. I have to spend most of my day in considerable pain and exhaustion and if you visit I probably don't seem like much fun to be with, but I'm still me stuck inside this body. I still worry about school, and work, and my family and friends, and most of the time I'd still like to hear you talk about yours too.

Please understand the difference between "happy" and "healthy". When you've got the flu you probably feel miserable with it for a week or two, but I've been sick for years. I can't be miserable all the time, in fact, I work hard at not being miserable. So if you're...Continue Reading

Weather man is calling for Blizzard conditions in a lot of Oklahoma!
Good time to stay inside!
They are calling for up to 18" of snowfall in pockets. Oh that is after this lovely freezing rain and hail stops and switches over to snow.
No if the power will just stay on....

Well due to the sudden and unexpected death of my laptop I may not be online much if at all for a while. No way can I afford to buy a new one. I am posting this from my phone. But that is limited in what I can do. I can still do email though. But you may not see me on here for a while.

Not ignoring anyone!

I went up to Tulsa with a friend. He had another friend moving stuff from one hanger to another.
Well when we got there all that was in the new hanger was a Cessna Centurion.

So since it was a good sized hanger and we had my Night Vapor and his Ember we got in some flying. Even his friend flew some. He flew the Ember first. Then my NV. Got pretty comfortable with it too.

After that we did some airplane watching. All I had was my cell phone so I snapped a couple of pictures of some of the planes we saw there. The two that are of the same type belonged to a friend of his.
So with out further ado here are the pics I took.

I just want to wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving
When we face adversity and challenges it shows what is most important and what we shouldshould most appriciate and be thankful for. The people in our lives.

We need to let them know how we feel about them. Don't take them fdor granted or let it fo for another time. We don't know for sure there will be a next time.

I love and appreciate all those in my life that I am close to.

I can no longer build ( even arfs are tough now) kits but still able to fly some.
I am hoping to find a well built Mountain Models Eva Sport. I sold the last one I built a while back. And have been sorry I sold it ever since.

Hopefully I can find another that has been well built while I can still fly one!
I have posted in the forums in the past. But so far no luck.

I have had to make a hard decision. I am giving up on building kits and scratch built models. It is just getting too hard anymore.

I will keep flying for as long as I can. And I hope that is for a couple of more years at least. But it will have to be airplanes that either are bought from someone or arfs.


I hate do this since building has always been a huge part of what I enjoy in the hobby. But when I have to struggle to build something in weeks or months that always I was able to get done in hours. And I am not as happy with the results.
It is time to stop. If my health ever improves some how maybe I can build again.
But with MS and some other problems that is not likely. Still I will keep the hope alive.

I was going to build another Eva Sport since it really fits how I like to fly. But not going to happen now.
And no one wants to sell theirs! So now to search for a plane that flies like one. Not an easy task!

I like a thick airfoil good low speed handling and good basic (not 3D) ability. And of course I still prefer balsa over foam!

Looks like a big thunderstorm and wind storm on the way.
We have some branches hanging pretty close to our roof and power line.
So if I am not online after tonight that will be why!

I can go online on my cell phone. But it has it's limits too.

Weather is looking good in the long range forecasts for the fly in though!
Hopefully tonight we will just get some much needed rain and no damage.

Well lucky me... I was walking out to the car. My legs went out from under me and I went down. Did you hear the boom? Well my right foot folded under me and now my right ankle is swollen huge and hurts like :
It seems like it might well be broken.
Sure did not need that! With the fly in soon and all....

I will be back in time for the 4th of July BBQ though.

Well made it back from Iowa. I was never able to make contact with any rcgroupers while I was there. So that was a disappointment.

But onwards and upwords! Back to working on the Fly In!
Still need sponsors and warm bodies to run the event!

Leaving early in morning for Iowa. I will be in town from Friday through Saturday and heading back early Sunday morning.
I would like to meet up with some fellow fliers while I am there.

I won't be able to get on rcg while I am there. But can check email on my phone.
So anyone who would like to get together send me an email at w281959@yahoo.com

Last night was not a good night for Wewoka. There a total of 3 fires last night. One was the home of a man who went a couple of blocks away to the store. He sees a firetruck go by. He gets home to find his home in flames. A total loss.
There was another fire north of town. And another home gone...
The in town there was a fire in a cafe called CJ's. It is still burning now. A total loss. The business next door, Sniders printing and signs is also a total loss from water and smoke damage.

This small town did not need this. And there are people homeless and with out jobs too.

Worst of all the fire downtown that took two businesses appears to be arson...

I will try and post some pictures later.
