I have to say one thing about Thayer,

I went to E-Fest the first year, I had met Thayer at the JR Indoor. I was awed by some of the planes he brought to the JR that year. Then at E-Fest, I saw him fly Ron's Bug. I asked him some questions about it, Thayer said, get this Bug, you will love it. It was rather inexpensive as planes go at the time, I got one, built it and I still fly it. Have seen some Bugs that were so beat up I wondered how they would fly.

I came to the conclusion that for my ability, when I ask Thayer about a plane, he is always spot on and so now when I ask him a question if that plane would be good for me, he is always honest and from what I have found, spot on everytime.

So Thayer is one of my heroes since he can build, fly and write great articles.

Also Thayer is a very good photographer and I have seen much of his work.

So the Sea Monkey will get flown soon, but right now here in Northern Michigan we have had almost a full force gale, but now the winds are calming down, no snow falling, but lots of wind. Supposed to be nice for a few days, but I will have to run to the airfield as soon as the wind goes down.

I don't have a video camera to shoot any video.
