So I'm online, looking at a new Kate Spade bag that I am buying for Deanna.
I say to myself...how rediculous are these prices for a new designer purse.
Its just a small amount of leather and or fabric.

then I navigate to tower looking at servo's for the raven

then I tell myself to shut up and buck up for the bag...Not so overpriced when you think about what our plane stuff costs....

Hobbypartz.com's solar servo's.

Solar servos have been rock solid in my 36" foamy. The smaller 9g analog servos have out performed the Hitec hs5 counterpart. The digitals are even better. Haven't tried the larger servos.

It's all comes down to a matter of prospective doesn’t…Hers or His.

I tried to justify my 3D hobby against the yearly cost of her hair color & cut at the salon. Seemed like a very fair comparison to me...$$ hobby cost vs $$$ hair care cost. I will never try that one again ever!

I have seen one of your planes Cry, ya had better pick up Deanna the designer purse as well as the matching wallet. Lol

luckily, all she wants is the new purse..to replace the other Kate Spade bag I bought her 3 years ago. Sort of a celebration thing this time..she got a big promotion. A $500 bag is cheap compared to 8 savox or fut servo's.

Most all my planes are 20-35cc so I want to just put the same in everything. Suggestions? Bec and other suggestions welcomed also.

This is very true..
The main reason I took a year off from all things planes and IMAC in 2012.
Got to the point that I was obsessing (even more than I previously did)

Gone are the days of building a new plane every few months/weeks
buying kits left and right and stockpiling NIB kits in the garage shelves.

I'm trying to be good, but its been hard ringo...very hard.
a little pulp fiction right there...

I like it! I bet I can get 4-40 bolts that will fit those as well. Do they have a rubber washer on the back?
