That's not early I arrive at something like 5am and it is unlikely that I will sleep on the plane either. Flying is going to be great that day.

It will be a 3.30am start on the 7th, not as early as manilla, that one was like midnight, but its all fun.

Got the last model on the bench at the moment, should be done on the weekend.

Mine are built but some still need to be tuned and programed on my radio, I thought I could do that when I get there.
Just been too busy at home to do anything else.

Alex, If Bernd was going back over I'd send that heavy Scratcho over to you and say go your hardest, but he doesn't have any trips planned there soon.

Well next time he is, send it over. We have the sites and conditions to put it over 300 most times of the year.

I'll be on radar and helping where I can most of the time I think during the DS Fest

Alex is it right that you work close to the airport as it sounds like you are going to spend even more time there with asto on the 4th, josh and his dad on the 5th, Knut on the 6th and me on the 7th

No worries, Asto! I'll be there.

I'll do my best to pick everyone up, but depends if we are up flying or not.

Boxes look big until you star packing them with odd shaped flying wings and aircraft with different sized tails.

But it is now packed with 7 aircraft and total weight of 25Kg.

Carry it on. I had a tx case (rigid instrument case from super-cheap)
But don't put ANY tools or tape in the carry on. You'll lose them.
