If for some reason I disappear with no word in it, you'll know things went south and my wife took me out.

BS aside, the guy was real easy to deal with and very quick response time. No reason for doubts yet.

Glad you got the radio abaser. A computer radio is essential imo. I think that one will serve you well.

I just had a mishap at the flying field. My rudder servo locked up when I tried to come out of a failed knife edge spin. I wrestled with it for as long as I could. I managed to get it to pancake on the main gear. I have a video Ill post in a while.

On another note, my dle 35 has shipped via fedex ground. Wahooo!

It was on the 51 slick. Only minor damage the lg was already damaged from Monday so it just kind of finished it off... although I'm going to try and fix it. The balsa around one of the anti rotation pins on one wing split apart. Easy fix with some thin ca. There is some cracked paint on the cowl. Otherwise everything looks good. Ill post the video when I can.

Seriously..... I seen where they changed the "Rules Page" format with tabs... I thought I would check it out... I have NEVER read the rules here or on any other forum, you would like to think you would act in a manner that rules would not be required.

HOW MANY BLOOMIN RULEZ are needed to run a forum, for gods sake what is all that stuff. Does there have to be rulez for Spammers? I think that is pretty much a given. There is sooo much in that rules set, half way through I forgot what the heck I read and the point structure made my eye twitch.

Yeah... was up at 4 am to make it to a meeting at Microsoft in Malvern this morning, brain may still be gone....Wood Dowels and multiple choices of glue should sort it out.

2.4 Abaser!!!! Cool

After the white glue days I have used nothing but 5 minute epoxy and have never had a problem I can see using longer drying epoxies if you feel the need to use that time, But in 5 minutes you can pretty much always get things where you need them especially if you clamp and mark where everything needs to go first Which you should do anyway. I guess can't see standing around waiting 30 minutes for glue to dry anymore LOL Back in the day it was always Elmers and waiting over night to continue

Do you happen to have the sound track in an audio file?
Hey Wayne Thanks
Yes Me on Keys
I do the vocals,, Sorry listeners lol
WOS took about 2 months to write and record and another 1 to 2 months to put all the vids in the timing with it. I did all the tracks including every drum sound 1 drum at a time with my Keyboard very long process for the drums LOL
I'm sure I have files of the WOS Audios When I get some time and my hearing back tomorrow I'll try and get them posted

Great Pics of the WRAM show, Hope you had fun, we decided to go to The Barnspeed hobby shop in MA instead, We had a blast and actually bought things the most I've bought at a WRAM show in 3 years was some servo extensions and a hot dog each time LOL same as the rest of the club, I really wish they had stuff there for Kit builders kind of a bummer with everything ARF RTF and electric, Not worht the drivein fuel although it is a Fun event but we go to buy stuff and never can get a thing that we really want. even our fav Hobby shop had minimal Kits this time which we let the owner know about. its a good thing he carries Everything else on hand I mean Parts galore for everything and that whys we like him but it was upsetting to see his wall of planes 99.5% arf's we saw 2 complete build kits We know he has a stash of kits upstairs though people aren't allowed upstairs as its dangerous up there. but they'll go look for whatever your asking for

Alright I'll catch up more later gotta go The bee is off the table and ready and the Ultimate Bipe was started today

There is another forum site that would be happy to host the Twistaholics thread any time you all wanted to make the switch. We pride ourselves on staying out of the way of people having fun. Just say the word and I will set up a thread on our new forum site 3 d r c f o r u m s . c o m
no pressure, but it is always there if you don't like it here anymore.
