P.S. This plane is for sale. Let's talk Ben into buying it and throwin' some ADC Vinyl all over it! (Then again, they might burn off at Mach 1.8...)

NO WAY! I WANT IT. Anyone want to go partners?

I read that Scott has $10 that he could chip in.
(He'd fly this, more then needing a Winter Home in Ariz.).

P.S. Spent a lot of my childhood in Metairie, LA. Nothin' like Southern Hospitality!
Awesome camera. I love Canon.
I am holding out for a canon Rebel T1i. We are trying to have a baby, so when that happens that pretty much automatically means new video camera.
All my family is from Metairie.

Peace,

Really great looking pics. Great color and exposure for seemingly low light.

Well I was gonna put my $10 bucks in Sukhoi Kitty but with this early winter I might have to up it to $20 and ask it be applied to the frat house in AZ.

It's prolly got the thrust to get airborne at LAMA but stopping might be an issue. If I join maybe they can use the funds to install arresting cables.

I almost went to TUS this weekend to warm up but decided to play couch potato instead. I'm kinda sorry I didn't now cause it looks like they had some great flying.

Hopefully we can get back to fall weather at least next weekend.

Sure $10 will work. You can give us plane rides down there. Does the sukhoi have 2 seats?

Heads up on glasses strap for batteries

I almost lost my SC yesterday. I did the first violent blender from about 3/4 throttle and one of the 2- 1800 Turnigy 30-40c batteries ended up in the tail end. I had them side to side with generous velcro and a non stretchy cord with the button release snugged down on them. Everyone at the field thought what a great idea,but I had to fess up and admit I saw it in this thread.
Anyway one pack was still plugged in as I have a Y power lead with 2 Deans, but it quickly became apparent the CG was drastically off. I managed to get here down but due to a lack of a last min. needed burst, she tore out the gear.
I'm all fixed now but am adding a 360 deg. velcro strap or 2! Just a heads up

Yes, it is the family model (two seats) so you can take your best gal at Mach 1.8.
