Yippee!
The "Flaunt what you got" thread!

No pictures - but hey I'd only be taking a picture of a box and some gift cards!

I got a Liftworx Mycro! I'd think it would be an excellent airplane for up here in order to test slope sights while riding around on my bike.

Merry Christmas!

Justin

A cordless drill from Sears, the 19 volt one. It also came with a flashlight.

Man, looking over the Mycro instructions...

Kind of an intense build for such a small plane! It should be fun.

Justin, the build instructions are the most complete of any plane I have ever seen/built. Don't let the number of steps intimidate you. Just take your time and do as Scobie says and you'll have an ultra sweet flying plane. Nice score!

Hey Dutch, where's the bottle opener?

I got a 24-105mm L series lens for my camera and some golf stuff.

Maybe I should have switched "intense" with "intricate". I would rather that there is a whole lot said when building a plane like that, rather than leaving a bunch for the builder to decide and question.

Cool instructions, very detailed. The kit is nice too. I emailed Scobie about where to go about purchasing a small nicad battery pack as well as a receiver as I've heard FMA was having some issues with credit cards...?

Way too cool of a gift, and the best yet!

I see at least a dozen uses around the food center just at first glance.

Lucky Dawg you are, enjoy.

Gotta love a guy who appreciates good glass. Just quit my job at Canon yesterday, but picked up the same lens before I left.

My xmas gift - 1/5 scale BMW M3 - 25 lbs and 60mph on gasoline. Sweet!

Have a great "09 ya'll.

FMA no longer makes the M5V2 which was the receiver the Mycro was designed for. Scobie can recommend other receivers that fit. I used the CR2 battery option and got about 20 hours worth of flying before having to change the batteries. The rechargeable option is tougher to find.
