Quick PSA to help an RCG'er and fellow Texan out.

I like cheap electric stuff. I really buy it to blow it up but Im too careful and end up flying it forever anyways. But I still love a bargain.

I buy a lot at HK. My second source I have grown to like is RC Timer. I follow thier thread which gets kinda silly sometimes... http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...0#post23967634

All that to say, here is a new guy, outta Texas, that has become a dealer for them so I thought I would mention it here.... http://www.uavobjects.com/

Finished this today. It came with a 1800kv motor for 3s. I put in a 2800Kv for 4s. I hope the wings come off it flies so fast.

BTW: I know it needs a prop to go fast.

Oh Sure Wayne,,,, you'll fly THAT jet YA Big Chicken

Kerwin Here in NY they go by so fast Seconds have been stripped from the clocks. All I want to know about NY is WHATS THE FREAKIN HURRY??!!!! The world needs to slow the heck down and enjoy life a little more.

Caution,,,, Kerwin got me on a Rant now LOL
Even the music industry is affected, as people don't have the patients to sit down and hear a good jam band anymore, or even if you listen to tunes on the radio, if the song is more than 2 minutes its a bother so now most all the radio stations find the shortest versions of tunes and air them instead of the good ones. so we have time to listen to more commercials, well not this ol boy I can listen to good jams for hours. so My radio is now off and only CD's, MP3's, tapes are played in my presence, So there commercials !!! I guess all that commercial money is just wasted now.
Enough of comercialization I say LIVE LIFE
Rant end

Good luck to all in Tornado warnings and heavy snowfall areas

I'm an album-side kind of music listener. No short songs for me. Listen to the whole album, then move on to the next one.

Yes, Waldo, first opportunity with a camera man, that thing is going up. It may be in pieces but it is going up. There is a significant $$$ delta.

We are having glorious rain.

I programmed a plane a couple of weeks ago but I did not name it so I don't know what happened. I hate it when I do that.

Cut some steel for my trailer today. No I need to weld it up.

Hmm. I need a yob.

Wayne That thing looks fast sitting still but I will stay with something that runs on liquid fuel. Waldo and I just have to have smoke and noise. If you get smoke and noise form lecty is that bad news?

Smoke is usually bad. Noise sometimes, just like a glow engine.

Maybe I will make a video of the motor running so you can hear it. It is a different noise but noise anyway. It screams at about 30,000 rpms.

Here is an electric smoking.

Easy Star with Orange Smoke. (4 min 34 sec)

We are having wonderful weather here.

Focus is not sharp. I hate it when I forget that autofocus is off.
