Here's a couple of storage racks I built that were inspired by one that I saw in a picture of DR's shop. Should make storage and transport a little easier.

Lol you guys are like 2 peas in a T _ _ _ T today ;D both fabulous ideas and I will do both, I originally took the 91 off to put it on a test stand that I have to make of course as I used my last one in a plane lol I don't think its foaming but it could be and yes the tank might be a little snug in there as I think I overdid the packing around it knowing I was going to fly the heck out of it but that hasn't happened yet I'm starting to wonder if there is just something wrong with the stock tank that came with the plane.

Kerwin lol yeah get on that camera guy lol

Buckskin yes that's an awesome setup

Replaced my pads for brakes, put on bell to tell others to get out of the way, bought used basket for handle bars

And my bill was 80$


And that was for my bike with peddles

I say lets tax the rich guys really heavy duty

Take from the Rich and give to the poor

A 10 ply for a pick up truck cost me close to 1000$ the other day

New great tires for that truck would cost like 1500$ min


My buddy was explaining to me how cheap nitro or gas is rather than electronics is for rc these days

He had formula to show how expensive electronic plane is versus nitro or gas


And I said os engines is still made in Japan and best deal in the world

Almost all electronics stuff made in china crap ola

Isn't that about the same as the old one Daniel?

Did it come with new planes?

I'll bet the tires on daniel's truck cost more than my airplane van.
Speaking of tires I to need to do some tire swapping. I blew a tire on this gravel road some weeks ago. So when I went digging thru my tire pile I found one that was a close match , but just a tad smaller.m I ended up putting it on the front. Then my buddy Curtis gave me two really nice tires he had on his roadster. Their a little larger so I'm going to put them on the back. But like snowy I know I'm going to get raped on the mounting and balancing.

Yeah, I'm keeping the hauler for a while. Just picked it up a few months ago. Needs a little work, but that's part of the reason I got it.

Waldo, don't keep us in suspense..........what are you getting.......why the sudden interest in FPV? Website details..........sheeeesh.......leaving us hanging like that!

Buckskin........how long have you had those aircraft? I don't recognize them. Is your new ride a 4x4?
