I am all set - see your inbox for details. Should be two.

If I start doing this a lot, a small pull-behind - might pay for itself, but all depends on the facilities. I used to like sleeping on the ground in a tent, but that was a long time ago when I was a little more flexible

I like hot/cold running water - indoor plumbing...and my wife would demand it

Greenville will be the first city in the nation to offer a countywide jetpack transit service.
I don't know about this....
Under rates...One day membership is only $10, who knows you may not live any longer than one day.
They're going to spend two hours for training (that's $5 per hour) and the jetpack is free???
Additional fees for knee pads! Is this how you land or is it for praying before you launch. Wow!
They must think the people in Greenville is extraordinarily stupid!

Looks like a pretty big EDF - I think it might get a little more positive feedback if we saw the CEO in a video flying around.

Bill finds the best humor in how dumb people really can be and it is super funny.

You're spot on with the CEO being the first guinea pig.

This is almost like a Ponzi scheme where people pay money for a promise of something they dream of but is just not going to happen. What is really confusing to me is why don't they ask for more money? If it's illegal and you get arrested, make it worth the risk!

Oh well, back to RC stuff.

Dalton, or anyone else who knows, what kind of deals/sales are there normally at SEFF?

You know if 3DHS/EF are there?

Just want to know how much money I might blow....

Now that you mention it royalstar, I don't think there is a build guide on the low wing. Pictures of mine is at post 226 and there are some at post 44 but I don't think there is a build guide. Not to worry, it is very easy to build, just think of the high wing but the wing is on the bottom. Prints should help also, however when you build yours please do a build guide with pictures and I'll use it for others.

Thanks

In the pasted there was a lot of people selling out on the flight line. This would be used but like new things.
In the dealers building there are many dealers selling and Hodges Hobbies is on the property all the time. The property belongs to Mack Hodges.
Most all the hobby dealers on the east coast are there.

All that being said, bring lots of money!!!

You can always post to 3DHS/EF thread or blog and ask them if they will be there.

At this small airport is where I've been renting planes. Seems a visitor had some unfortunate misfortune.

You should be able to get a pretty good discount renting that one.
