David.......I am impressed as well! Are you telling me that that is the rig you took to the clouds with? Ok, batteries, motors, ESC's, BEC's, I want to know everything! Where did you get the awesome antenna? What about the mods you made to the TX......were those your own?

Oh, Plow.........I too have only been involved with RC for a little over three years........and I am self-taught.........so don't go putting that lame excuse out there this early so that you can come back to it when you lose this low-down-ho-down!

Fixn'.........have things stablized yet? Mid-continental earthquakes, huh? What's up with that! Next thing you know we'll have tsunamis in Lake Superior! Crap.....there goes my camp! (Maybe I should up my insurance?......Naw.....I despise insurance men.......such parasites! They produce nothing........only prey on man being predisposed to thinking the worst of everything!)
Anyway.......Cheers........here's to the earth staying steady under your feet!

Waldo.......did you get the day off? I'm so thankful all this crappy weather is heading south of us! We get our share. Enjoy the time off! SNOW DAY........WITH PAY! YEAH!!!!

Excuses snowman? Really? Let's see...."I went out and flew with my daughter filming but didn't get any video for the hover down".. when it was just David and you. Then my favorite.."oh theres only one nano second of viewable film of me almost hovering but more like crashing because my buddy (who's a 35mm photographer) couldn't keep the plane in frame"...maybe if you coulda held the plane still long enough he could have gotten something!! Thats why my vids are flights and not snippets. You get to see the good the bad and the ugly!! Show us the vids of you ten feet off the ground too! C'mon man, I'm getting a little tired of being the only one who's putting himself out there to be criticised. You're killin' me. ...wow, we're startin' to fight like real brothers! Luv ya man!


David, hurry up and get that information to snowman. I think he wants to fly around up there in the clouds and stay as far away from the ground as possible!

If it wasn't for my wife I'd be a bachelor!

There's this young man in one of my classes.......28 single....owns an old farmstead (33 acres) with workshop, barn, and house. The guy's hunting dogs sit on the sofa with him. He does dishes when he needs to. He has his rifles and guns where they can easily be accessed for a quick coyote kill out any of the windows......and he tells me he's lookin' for a good woman....like my wife, but younger(he works with her)....I looked him straight in the eye and asked if he was loco! "Don't give it all up for some poontang.......it ain't worth it!" I tell him, but his eyes are glazed over and he ain't hearing me. He's thinking about snuggling up to all that softy goodness! What a waste....another perfectly good bachelor in his death throes! The effect that the female pheromones have on the opposite sex is devastating!

WELCOME MARS ROVER!
Snowman, maybe you should show him this. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/0..._n_417976.html

Plow, I'm sorry I can't live up to your expectations, but I can hardly live up to my own! I reckon this smack talkin' is getting old not just for you and I, but for the rest of our T_ _ _Ted brotherhood as well. I won't be dishin' it out until I have the proof you need.......cause I'm bored with it.....I'm a lover.....not a smacktalker! I honestly don't know when I'll get out to fly next......life is busy. Can't ya just feel the love? Big Cold and Clamy Kisses from this great frozen wasteland!

Shoot, I would bet that it would take a few of us pitching in on that to afford it. Was there a price anywhere? Not the robot, the heli

Mars welcome! nice FrankenTwist Seriously, looks great. Can't wait to see a video to see how it flys, I'm guessing the profile gives you great knife performance, probably a bit lighter and should really make it a 3D flyer. DG
