I didn't forget it because I wasn't aware of it. So, make that at least 5 accounts.

So how's retirement treatin' ya and you should punch sis right in the nose for hooking you on this wonderfully addictive sport!

All the best!

I'm retired. Then I got a wife. Big mistake. No, I kid. She's great. But married life does keep me busy.

Let's see here... looking at my battery log... last time I took my AJ Slick 51 out to the field was 5/29! That's more than 2 months ago!

We have been married 42 years and she supports the addiction. I'm so blessed.

Thanks! But 7am doesn't work for me. I'm gettin' the wife out the door to work.... making her breakfast, packing her lunch... she isn't retired! That's A Place to Play, right? Would something as big as my Slick 51 be OK out there? You guys ever go out to Area 51? I fly the Slick out there.

There is nobody there in the morning so there is plenty of room. I fly my 48 3DHS yak there sometimes. We do fly at area 51 sometimes, but not lately.

Yeah... it's quite a ways up here. Aren't there a lot of guys down there? I've seen quite a few in the FPV forums from San Jose and on up the peninsula.
