Hobbytown in Everett has qty 4 Eflite 3s 30c 450mah at 42g left in stk as of yesterday.

I have 2 of them to experiment with until my preferred 2s & 3s lipos arrive hopefully this week. If my other lipos show you are welcome to borrow or buy my experimental Eflites.

My friend's son, who I mentioned a while back, is looking for a used 50cc RTF plane to help get back into the hobby after several years. He has been involved in car racing for about ten years and has a young family, which typically means moving out of a really high-cost hobby into a somewhat less, high-cost hobby. I'm sure he would drive up from San Francisco if there was a a good reason. He's looking for an Extreme Flight Edge, Extra, Yak, etc, with a DA-60 or relative engine, or something in the same size from 3DHS... he may also consider something in the same size from Chief / Pilot RC with the right components. If anyone has something they would like to sell, and use the money for a new 91 Extra, which is where my spare cash would go, this may be a good opportunity. Please PM me if you have something interesting to consider.

Hey guys, I'm passing this on to you from the MARC BOD inbox:

Dear Fellow RC Modeler....

My name is Bob Jones, and I am President of the High Sierra Radio Control Club, in Carson City, Nevada. One of our members, Les Harris is fighting a life or death struggle with the residuals of colon cancer. We are asking fellow RC flyers to go to the website www.rccancerfighter.com and if they can, make a contribution to the Les Harris Cancer Fund, or provide materials for display on the website.

We would like to receive videos, or links to videos and pictures showing activities at your club. We will make a webpage for your club giving out what ever information you would like about your club and showing your club activities. The page will be similar to the HSRCC page you see now. Our hope is to let as many people as possible see grass roots model aviation at itís best, and of course , generate donations to help Les and his family through this crisis. You may email me directly at: bobjones@rccancerfighter.com with any questions you may have.

Lastly I would like to ask you; if you are comfortable with it, to forward this email , or one of your choosing to as many of your members and contacts as possible and ask them to do the same. I am sure if we contact enough fellow modelers, out there, we can make a difference for Les and his family.

Thank you so much for your help and consideration. Bob Jones

Hey I just wanted to let you guys know that the Cinestar 8 multi-rotor copter that I've been using from Motofish Images is going up for sale soon.

They haven't been able to drum up enough business in order to justify keeping it around.

I'll be removing the FPV gear and returning it to (MCS) Joe prior to sale within the next couple of weeks.

Once I know their asking price, I will post here to see if any of you are interested.

It looks like the "Marcotics" video I am currently working on will feature the last of the footage taken from the copter.

Thanks,
-Chris H.

Dman, I think you've found your gift exchange item!

OK, so for Saturday, I'm thinking we meet at Pagliacci Pizza at 5 pm, followed by Barn Owls flying at 6 pm. Those guys with Vapors and micro-Cessnas won't know what him 'em.

For Marcs flying, I'm thinking it be too cold, probably wet, and get dark too early, but maybe it will be nice day.

The Pagliacci is on Sand Point way just a mile or two from Barn Owls.
