New pic

Here's a new picture from Laine. He says that it is rather windy there (35mph) so it's not real easy to fly the RC gear.

Here's Laine's caption for the attached picture:
Hey Lee, I finally talked my CO into taking a picture with the first Fun Jet! So, this is Captain Sam Pemberton, the A-6-101 Company Commander with the FJ and the Hitec Optic 6. The plane was built by Dennis Eelkema (under my supervision). Still have not had a chance to fly it, but, one of these days, I may get a minute off of work when the wind is calm and I'll get it out there.

Hey folks, just wanted to drop in and say THANK YOU on behalf of all of us over here in Bagram, Afghanistan. We are having a blast (when time permits). There are at least three guys out "playin trucks" every evening. Its a hoot! Most of "the guys" have zero RC experience, so its been rough at times. Like soldering up Deans connectors on 14 trucks, 28 batteries, 14 battery chargers and what not by myself. Then explaining how the chargers work, how to replace broken parts, set gear mesh on the trucks, and so on and so on. But, in the end, it has been worth it for me. These guys are really having a great time. Its nice to see them just let go of all the crap we see and do all day and just act like kids again when they are "playin trucks". All of it is because of of Lee taking the time to make it happen with help from Castle, Flight Power, Global, Airtronics, Hitec, Multiplex and Traxxas. Thank you all VERY much!

So, swing into the web site www.bagramrcclub.com and help support a VERY worthy charity. The Fisher House has done and will continue to do great things for Army people and their families. Cant thank them enough for helping out my "brothers".

Shirts came in yesterday. Should be going out over the next few days. This is going to overwhelm our shipping ladies.

There are several piles in the photo -- those are all Bagram RC Club shirts!

Thanks,

LEE
