I can't believe it's been nearly 6 or 7 weeks now since I've flown anything. It all started when I shipped both of my LiPos back to the distributor because they went bad way too early. They were found to be defective and were replaced. That took like two weeks. I also went on vacation for a week, moved to a new apartment (about a 3 minute walk from the flying field!), and that pretty much explains my absense.

Tonight was my first night back to the hobby. I soldered Dean's connectors onto the new Lipos and I finally mounted the landing lights on the SkyMaster. It looks sweet! I'll take a pic soon and post it. I think I put too many LEDs in each cluster. It lights up the whole room and it's just too bright to stare directly at the plane. I love it! I hope it doesn't blind me during final approach!

This is definitely going to attract attention at the field and I can't wait to test it out later this week. I still need a tail light and then she's ready to go!

I'll keep you informed.
