well, im spending 3 days at a event in vegas this week, but maybe i can talk my wife into letting me go down there for saturday, so i can get some more sptick time on my 1/4 scale 12ft scratch built T-38. buttonwillow is the perfect place for a beast like this!

believe it or not, thats a 83" wingspan!
