My wife was very surprised last night

Our youngest son got out of the Marines early, due to terminal leave and starting penn state this fall. We set it up so a friend of Brenda's called and said she had an extreme water leak in the house, and needed our help ASAP. This was about 930 last night. Brenda was in shock. It is good to have him home. So our support of the war effort with out sons now draws to a close. Blessed that they both came home with all ten fingers and toes!! Enjot the video! and yes she was in her PJ's and robe

I built several of the "FireFly" that were basically a knockoff done by Lead Feather on RCG. They are no doubt the most fun windy day plane there is.

Can't believe everything you hear, got to test it out. Was that a hit on 72 Mhz?

We had one of those perfect days, too perfect, and like the others that seemed good and went to crap... this one didnt.... until late in the day.... Just cant win.

Not sure what of it will get to us, me guess this is why they are "predicting" the weather.

Todd at our club has a twist with the 82, let me check with him and see what he spins.


Speaking of which... What is a good 3Dish prop for a K&B 61?
I am seeing 11X7 or 8, possible 12X6. I have some 12.25X3.75 but I am not sure.

This is NOT a tail heavy Kadet, the 6V pack will need located on or just behind the CG and the Fuel tank is slid back under the windsheild.
