What a wonderful morning to fly. I think I'll pop a battery in my EA and take it for a flight. I'm running a little late anyway. I stayed up last night to watch the college world series.

Today will be a 10 hour day at least. They're killing me this summer. Not complaining because I have a job and that's a good thing.

I should ship you the mythical EAPR and let you finish it.

No, I'll get to finish it one day. I do hope you build one. You're a much faster builder than I.

Well, back to work so I can go home sometime.

Will eWeek be competition for SEFF? I don't think it will because it is in the fall and SEFF is in the spring. I plan to go and fly at the first annual eWeek.

Maybe it will become a yearly event for me. Yahoo!!!

There could be some value to this, if school wasn't back in by then.

Yea, I thought about that in your case. The school system did say if it was educational (the study of aviation) and if you give them enough time notice (apply now) that they may approve the vacation/break.

Also, you could come solo.

Here are today's top 10 Radio Control Definitions: FLY RC Mag

1.Glide Time: The time between the engine falling out of the model and the airplane hitting the ground.
2.Aeromodeling: The art of turning precision-cut and glued balsa wood and foam into toothpicks and confetti.
3.Crash: A simple method of seeing inside a model airplane. Also, Synonym for "re-kitting" a model.
4.Receiver: Part of the radio that picks up interference.
5.Tank: Temporary storage place for chemicals before they saturate the plane.
6.Elevator: Device that prevents level flight.
7.Dead Stick: You will find two of these on your transmitter after failing to properly charge your batteries.
8.Glitch: The word you yell just after you pull up-elevator while flying inverted, 10 feet above the ground
9.Fail Safe: A setting on radios that allows the pilot to choose whether to crash near him or far away.
10.Engine: A device on a model airplane that makes noise, and will suddenly stop doing so just beyond a safe glide-in distance

I thought for just a little bit that these were serious until after reading the first one.

Thanks - wonderful way to start the day off with a smile.

I do think I like #1 the best tough.

I like 7 & 8, funny but true. I used glitch a lot when I first started and not beyond using it now.

I still think this guy had a great idea, called a port-a-wing for travel. It fits in a small box and can be assembled in a short time, ready to fly. The assembled wingspan is 32.5". The case is 16.5" x 14". Longer than 20" but I think it is so neat. I cut out one but have not yet built mine, but I plan to (like so many others) when I get the time. Check it out. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1441777

Port-A-Wing from RC Profile Planes assembly (3 min 36 sec)
