I have a brushed A-10 EDF that does not fly, I have brushless motors and Lipos that will make it work, but no ESCs to power it right now. Soon though. Gent has an A-10 profile though, we can make this happen!

Brushfires? Cars torched??
Look. All I know is that I got my butt kicked out there. Here's how those sonic combats sound when you get hit. This was belem killing my Supercub with his T-28 (onboard at Douglas Blvd)

I wish I was, but my Car is in the shop getting a wheel bearing replaced. Should have been done Friday, but they cant get the Axle free of the Hub (It should just Slide Out), which they need to do in order to remove the Steering Knuckle, in order to get the Hub/Bearing on to a machine press (Which is the reason I took it in instead of doing it myself, I dont have a machine press).

On Monday I am going in to the shop to get my own eyes on the debacle they've got going on over there. If anything seems silly, I will be sure to let all of you local guys know which shop it is that is preventing me from being able to play with my remote control toys this weekend

/rant

Have fun guys

I was at grant line early in the morning today flying my cessna.
I was on my first flight I was going to practice my landings. As I was trying to straighten it toward the road I hit a tree and stuck my plane in it.
It was right on the top of the tree and in the middle. I was shaking the whole tree really hard from the branches but that just made matter worse it made the plane sink in middle of the tree more n more.
I couldn't climb the damn thing the branch were so thick.
So then I parked my honda accord under the tree and I got on the top of the roof my car to get my plane down but no success it was still really high.
So than I packed all of the stuff I had laying out{field equipment} drove home and got couple of broom sticks. Came back out parked the car again climbed on the roof then knocked my plane down. It was so funny I wish I had the camera.
My dad said if worse come to worse if you still can't get it you'll just have to take the ladder and set it on the roof of the car lol... I think he was trying to be funny...
later on Gent and boyet came by.
It was good flying today guys...

Hey wassup Eric, Hopefully shop installed the bearing for you man. Next time we will meet.
