I have some new video, but my high speed DSL is operating on Dial Up speed. 4 minute video upload = 2 hours plus.

I am going to cycle my machine, and try again.

Get Real,
Castle has issued a recall for the Mamba XL esc.
If I remember correctly, you have the Mamba setup in the HPI.

Jim,
The sunroom is totally functional, I built that 10 years or so ago. We're just upgrading it with vinyl siding. Our main goal, is to have a maintenance free exterior on the house. Liz absolutely loves that room, it's only 12x12, but she eats breakfast out there, reads the paper, etc, etc. I'll get some pics of the interior tomorrow.. All her set-up.... Lol!

Speaking of mCP X'S, I still haven't got my order from "A Main Hobbies", which is over a week now, and my batteries from HK... Whoa is me.

Time for a glass O' box wine.

No....

I can do it under controlled conditions at the work bench, but not beyond that.

Tim.......I'm having the same "speed" problem......are you on CenturyLink? I'm paying for light speed and getting time lapse.

Vic.......I'm with ya.....the only 3D I've ever done was unintentional......lol

Dang Vic- I KNOW you can do it. Maybe dial in a bit more expo to help in the transition.

Dave- Guess I misread your sun room, thought it was only a 3 season. My bad. Lzi doing better with her toe?

Barry- Hope you have a large day too.

Got DSL on my end. D/L speeds are great. Uploads suck! When uploading to YT, I do it just before going to bed and let it run overnight. A 700MEG video takes about 6 hours.

Jim ..... I think "they're" ripping us off with the so called high speed internet promise. Guess that's their way of cutting back.

Barry- Yep, cell phone companies are doing the same thing, throttling back speeds. What good is 4G if you throttle me back to 3g??!!

Tim- You are really getting the hang of it now. Keep at it and you will be in FF in no time.

Last week I got the Vision 50 out and tuned the engine abit. Had to re-do throttle and pitch curves. Everything was going good then I refueled and made afew more needle changes then if would lean out on me , made some more needle changes started out ok then lean out again . Started to adjust again then i noticed my pipe looked weird. I had lost a exhaust bolt causing it to lean out on me. I have not replaced the bolt yet or any other R/C I been too busy.

Yesterday we had a local event called " Run for the Fallen" Its a 1 mile path lined on both sides with flags. Each flag has a name attached to it of a military member who has been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, this year there were 6,209 flags. The goal is to run or walk 1 mile for each flag. Yesterdays total was over 2600 miles and goes till Wednesday.

Then I got home and started working on fixing my driveway. Last week I picked up 2700 lbs of concrete mix (44 60lbs bags) to fill a 22ft x 3ft trench from when I installed my new service to the house. It took me and Steve about 6 hours to finish, I did the mixing and most of the wheelbarrow work and Steve smoothed and formed the slab. Today I'm going to relax abit
