Dbone, you have paid your tithe to the dlg gods...this new plane is going to be ding free for years to come!
Just in case, make sure you always launch from the upwind side of the field at least 5 s after the buzzer, always land 30s early, and should you find yourself circling near another plane, simply exit the thermal and recore in an empty one nearby....
Ohhhhh, almost forgot. You also need to reference these two resources below:
602 506 PETS, for that homeless dog in your front yard,
To get your house key back.
That plane will give you years of great flying!
