Way to go Chet. Keep up the good work we will see you back at the club with your plane built like new again. If you need to borrow a heat iron or something give me a shout.

Many thanks again to my friends for all their support during my journey in the hobby!

Especially in the beginning with those many long nights after work with Vitter helping me out (with pizza).
Nice Job Chet. Rebuilding can be kind of fun, once in a great while. It's the crashing part that is painful.

Vitter kudos for helping a fellow 3D mob member out, I don't care what bad, awful or plain horrible things the Circle fliers, Scale fliers, IMAC fliers, Heli fliers, well & just about any other (non-3D or FPV) fliers say about you..lol...your alright.

Chet got your pm. I have been saving the following from my spares EXP for a scenario like this. You are welcome to the following spare parts all in the red / blk / white scheme, as I know you would do the same for me.

-Full wing set left & right with SFG's, carbon wing tube & wing bag. (salvaged -this is the set I have been running multiple vortex generator tests on. It comes, setup with refined vortex generators that help dampen wing rock during transitions.)

- Complete Horizontal Stab (salvaged)

- Carbon Landing gear (repaired)

- Wheel Pant (right side)

- EF Nose cone black

Pod racing?

Vitter, I've got my 5.8 quad dialed in. Made some flights today at Magnuson. I am getting a little bored of park PFV. I need to find somewhere more interesting to fly without liabilities.

If you want to try some tandem FPV I'll meet you. Anyone else?

Dang, I'm going to have to check in more often, lotsa good stuff going on. Good luck on the build and rebuild Flarpy and Chet. Been having some good building weather, was trying to take advantage of it but also in the middle of moving so never enough time for all the stuff I'd like to get done.

Thanks to Joel and Vitter for helping me with my hex, can't wait to have some of my own FPV experiences.
