HAHAHAA, so I am a graphics installer by trade. My current job is the College Basketball Experience in KCMO. Well I found a break in the work and now I can say I am the only person to fly in the CBE.

Good luck Mike! Can't wait to see a vid! Yours would be first!!

I've drilled new holes for my engine and used epoxy and toothpicks to fill in the old holes. I'm just waiting for the glue to dry.
I still need to get servos for the T---T, although I may have enough around here. I'd probably have to use some mismatched ones if I go that route. I guess it doesn't matter as long as the aileron servos are the same. I'll start digging if I have time later.

The 2nd Video was awesome too, loved the tunes you chose and the close call was very close indeed lol Def a servo panning option needed the boss at the end did she come over and kick your car over LOL Back to 1st vid... And does George water the sidewalk in the winter to make it nice and slippery for people walking by his house so he has some entertainment LOL
Great vids and thanks I really enjoyed them

I am thinking viral on youtube. Losing was a big incentive for me to work harder.

Worse, they learn they can do nothing and those that work at it will carry them on their backs....
Great Idea LOL I'm planning on a golf game dropping a golf ball from the hatch doors a Par 5 would require 5 drops the closer you get to the pin on each drop would bring your height down a little more so instead of yards away it would be yards in heights. we've been working on some details for the game

You got that right Wayne!!! back in our day we had to earn everything we got or you got nuttin

The DANG THING that was just on the TV Oh Sorry,,, I missed it,,, LOL but she knows now she'll ask if I was paying attention before she comments anymore lol

They're still flowing your way and keep the good attitude now, it can be hard to hold a positive mind set when things are going on all around you but it will help for sure. Never give up !! never surrender !!

I'm sure I have some wheels around here somewhere but I think they are smaller than the factory wheels. I'll just have to learn how to land I guess!!
