Remember who I work for...sshhhh.

I believe it could also be retail replicated with two pieces of CST or Midwest stk hollow square or round carbon fiber, it just wouldn't be as as light or torsionally ridged.

We will need to have a fly off (crack yak std vs super carbon fiber std) to see if there is any performance difference worth all the upgrade effort & cost. Flop, Kody, Supatim or Vitter would need to be at the sticks.

And if you recall I am still refining the details & finishing off the micro vortex generators summer project. I owe Gareth some aircraft transferable ratio data.

Let's talk more at coffee as we don't want this to become the Steve & Lee Crack Yak addict thread.

Because I want to see more goofy pictures of Flarpy & pokes at Flop & Vitter! lol

That's the cracky's allure is that you can fly them anywhere and have fun! Way to huck Joe and I'm sure it'll "click" sooner than you think. You've come light years in the last 6 months and I have a feeling you're still testing the waters on your thumbs... I still learn or try something new every time I plug a pack in and fly. Hate to say it but since I cracked out I haven't sim'd since!

Check out the new baby in the house! Believe it or not it's foam and not a product of crack! Bad news is it's Nov and the sun goes down at 4, I get home at 7 and thus she has yet to fly in daylight. By street light is another story...

let me throw this out there:

Marcotics Holiday Party

2 pm Saturday Dec 8. Starts at MARCS for a few quick 'chillin' flights, then we head out for drinks and early dinner, then followed by Barn Owls indoor fly at 6 pm Magnuson Park. Then dancing and clubbing in belltown. Ok not really the last part.

Everyone bring a <$20 gift for the Marcotics gift exchange.

Who's in?

Flop Dec 8 works for me. Sounds like fun .

White elephant gift exchange .....THE GAME:

1. Each guest who wishes to participate must contribute a gift. Everyone sits or stands in roughly a circle around the pile of gifts.
2. Prepare slips of paper equal to the number of gifts with clearly written numbers. Be sure to distinguish 6 from 9, 1 from 7. Each participating guest draws a number and holds onto that slip of paper.
3. On the first turn, the guest with paper slip #1 chooses a gift, opens it, and all admire it.
4. On the second turn, the guest with paper slip #2 gets the choice of "stealing" any unwrapped gift (#1's) or choosing a wrapped one. If #2 steals #1's gift, then #1 must open a wrapped gift.
5. On the third turn, the guest with paper slip #3 gets the choice of "stealing" any unwrapped gift (#1's or #2's) or choosing a wrapped one.
The game continues based on the following:

1. If a gift is stolen from you, you can steal a gift (within limits, described below), or open a wrapped one.
2. The turn proceeds until a wrapped gift is chosen.
3. A gift cannot be immediately stolen back from the guest who just stole it.
4. The fourth "owner" of a gift gets to keep it. The gift is "dead" after it has been stolen three times.
5. "Owners" of "live" gifts must keep them visible and hold them up when requested.
6. The gift exchange ends when the last wrapped gift is opened. Usually, guests are encouraged to perpetuate the gift stealing as long as there are "live" gifts, but no one is obligated to do this.

Have a Happy Holiday season!
