August 21st sounds good. I am in Ohio anyway for that week. Is RCBirk's event in the Columbus area?

Sam digs his PA Addiction and it was so floaty it really helped him on inverted flying..... Even Arron busts my balls all the time (rightly so) to break the chain and let him fly it solo..... he does now on the Addiction unless it has been a few weeks and I play safety guy on the first flight

the SHP has been awesome for Sam as well. He has it in the air all the time and it tracks very well in wind. I can think of only one time I had to save it...if he can wake up on a Saturday or Sunday sometime he might even be soloing it soon.... I just want to wait till all my stuff is built / repaired (hahaha) first

Looks like the yellow ones are gone so in a couple weeks, take all the PA 260 stuff out of that and give him a SHP
I am glad that Sam is coming along so well. Pretty soon he will be flying better than us

Jared is still working on mastering circle flying. So, he is not quite ready for a 41" Edge. I was thinking about getting him and his brother the new 3DHS foamie that is coming out under the 3DEPP brand. Hopefully that would give them the durability that they need and I can let them fly more with fewer consequences.

The Cessna was really just amusement to see if that plane that I built as a kid can even fly. Knowing that I built it and that it was my first and only build as a kid makes me have serious doubts whether it will last longer than a flight or 2

5 hour drive means Columbus is a hard day-trip for me though...

That reminded me of this video.

Full length no cut tunnel FPV (10 min 18 sec)


This guy is probably going to cause a serious car accident one day but so far he hasn't posted any video of one.

22 looks good for me. I don't think the wife would let me do Columbus so local would be cool. Either our club or Akron. I have to approve it with the wife to be sure though.

I could do the morning till about 1pm on the 22nd as well in the Akron / Canton area or Strongsville/North Royalton area.

I have to be in Parma in the afternoon. So, I couldn't make it to Columbus that day.

Dave sent me a Picture of the now completed, great looking vinyl on the SHP.
He also said the blue containers are removed from the Barc field.
Last day here. I will be driving back home tomorrow at 6 am (like that will happen). I am sure i wont be on the road until 10am.

That shirt is awesome. I would wear that even though I hate that word.

I got clearance from the wife for the 22nd. I am good at BARC or our club.

Nah, I was let down that it is truly not a "tablet" computer. Things are skoshed down application wise, and it is a web surfer

I am now a "registered App Developer" :-) and I have to build some apps for my group to use as our. Sales force will eventually use them and paper will be replaced by this type of presentation

I do very much dig it for email and the web. Started building some stuff for an account call on Monday

Might be a great way for me to throw Arron some business because he could probably build me what I need in 10 minutes. I am not a C programmer

I have the WiFi version and as long as I have a hot spot around the thing is very cool. Wish they would have made the same form factor on one of their laptops
