Well, I just had to do it. The 5th day I was home, I had to start on a plane. The 24" span Agressor delta kit from JGRC. Really easy build. Airframe went together in about 2 hours or so. Covering has taken me a day, and it could be in the air as soon as tomorrow if I hinged the elevons.

Power is a Dons RC Wicked outrunner (2700kv) and a 3S 2100 lipo. Should scoot the little bugger along at about 90-100mph.

Well, its official. Barring any unforseen crazyness, I have less than 24 hours to go. I will be outta here, see ya, laters, bye bye now, gone, history. Bye bye Bagram.

It has been a long long year away from the family. My wife has had some tough times at home with things breaking, falling apart, kids acting up, her own college classes, and numerous other issues. She handled them all, just as usual, like a pro. A guy cant ask for a better wife, let alone an Army wife. I sure am a lucky guy.

Our 3 kids, well, yeah, they drove mom nuts all year. But they also kept her laughing, helped her when she needed it, and generally just did their part while dad was gone.

It will be so nice to tuck the little one into bed again at night and tickle the crap out of him. As for the older two, I'll be there to work with my oldest on his truck. He will be rebuilding his engine/trans and everything else on his truck over the next year. Otherwise, he wont be driving! Thats just the way it goes at our house. You wanna drive it, you gotta build it. Yes, my daughter will be doing the same thing next year on her vehicle. As for her, well, I'll be putting the fear of DAD into all those boys who keep calling her! Oh yeah, daddy is comin home.

Then there are all of you guys here on RCG. Wow! You guys together sent us sooooo much stuff. From airplanes, motors, radios etc... to cookies, candy and drinks. You just cant find a better group of people than what we have here on RCG. Maybe thats why Im on here for hours every day! Thank you all. Make sure you find me at SEFF, hopefully some of the guys will be coming along also.

Thanks again, and see ya all soon.
