homesick for Fla

Nice video. Thanks for sharing it. Makes me homesick. I grew up in Fla. I miss the slow rivers, swamps and warm waters. But I do like the hills and cliffs and the lift they generate here in CA. That is why soaring capability is so high on my list. In case you haven't seen it before here is what I love to do with my current ornithopter.

Just email or PM your parts request.
Include your shipping address.

Look for the part you need in the following video and call it by name.
