well hello again. well christmas was decent. i got an airbrush compressor that i was wanting and my awesome wife bought me a heli and the usual clothes etc. its a belt cp v1(got it used on craigslist). so i tried to fly off grass on christmas day and it was way out of trim. it crashed. toasted 1 servo and a set of wood blades. it makes a clicking sound when i spool it up and i havent messed with it since christmas. i was mad so i put it in the box and put it in the corner. so im gonna try to fly again soon since i got a spare set of electronics with it including a radio and all servos. his buddie crashed his and gave to him then i bought all of it for $80. not too shabby ide say. he only tried to fly twice. and alot of scooting around on concrete. he never got it off the ground. now i find myself buying aluminum parts allready. lol. so this christmas was ok in general other than my wifes van breaking down at my moms place. we got a ride home and the vans in the shop. well thats all for now. doug.
