Halfway down the page is this video:

Fun to watch - great pilot - and excellent music to go along with it.
I wouldn't mind getting one of these some day.

Sorry, I said that wrong, I know you didn't mean anything by it, I would just toss it / give it away, before I would burn a bridge selling it.
Does not sound like a bad swap to me.

Think positive Daniel. I know you can do it. I am expecting someone to pay me to fly one of these days. Sure they will. Why not?

"buy" the way, my wife pays me to fly...fuel, new plane,ect... just so she can get some sleep after working at the hospital all night....


You know it's kind of sad, when an "outsider" comes to a club and a lot of the members want you to check out and maiden their new planes...
I have maidened 4 planes, TF AT6, H9 Twin Otter electric, a TF large scale P47, and an Alpha 40. The Alpha belongs to a 13y/o that "I" am teaching how to fly,, none of the "HOT SHOTS" want to take the time from their 35% and larger. I'm not even a member of this club, just a quest.

I will be maidening another Twin Otter soon, 2x OS46's... there are days I go out and never fly "my" planes.

tore down the TT40 tonight, packed her away until I can do a rebuild on the YS, I fly the Pizzaz some now.

That S-U-C-K-S! I think everyone should help someone at LEAST once per year.

At least you are being a good guy. I have days when I don't even take a plane to the field. I just go out to help someone else.

You need to do a high fly video with an Easy Star and see if they shoot you down!

no kidding... I find it pretty fun to help ppl fly their planes. If I was a "club" guy I'd spend some time doing that for sure. As it is I just take out neighbors sometimes.

Don't get me wrong.... I love teaching newbies and helping... stress doing maidens on new planes though...

I just amazes me the "club members" don't want to do help.

I know Daniel. Those guys are a$$es.

Those maidens can take years off ya! The last crazy one I did was a Lazy Cub that was converted - with my help - to electric. With no manual, we did the 30% CG thing. That plane was wayyyyy tail heavy. I landed it but it was WORK! After the maiden, the guy told me he had the manual.

I had a guy over today to install a motor in a FunCub and test it and get a battery ready for a Super Cub. I had other guys over to fix a bad connector on a battery, look at a covering problem (bad Monokote), put an LED in the nose of a FunJet Ultra, and pickup parts I ordered in.

I am building two more Easy Stars for club members.

Helping two guys to learn to fly.

Helped a member's friend last Sunday. His buddy box was broken so I got my Electrostik out and buddy boxed with him. Now his two kids also want planes.

I do my part.

My Camera Tapes must be shot, the quality is sliding to the way side. Any Who, just the Warm up flight from our Airshow.

I think when folks avoid helping others, they really miss out on some personal warm fuzzies. I seldom feel as good as I do when I help others. Way to go gents!!!!

I usually only get 2 maybe 3 flights on my plane because I'm always being asked for help.
It's alot of fun though. Just acouple of weeks ago I was sweating my *** off an my shirt was drenching wet from sweat running around helping ppl when our club pres insisted I sit down an take a break then he told everyone to give me a break. I really enjoy it though.

Just curious what camera you are using?

Yes, fly that 80 on a plane. I think it will be a great engine.

Canon ZR80. Its been a good Camera, not HD, but it seems over time the quality has been slipping. I am going to pick up a couple new tapes, these have a lot of hours on them.
