Barry- Tell Tee congrats on the radio gig. Is it talk or music? Can we listen to her program on line by chance? 3:30 isn't that bad, something to get used to. No wonder some recent posts of yours have been in the early morning!

Jim, we are working on sorting out some issues with the car. We did take our Time Attack Evo X out to the drag strip last Thursday. It has been sitting around collecting dust since the end of 2009. I pulled the wing and splitters off off the car, swapped the brakes out for smaller diameter ones that would fit a 15" wheel and put on a set of drag slicks on it. I did not have a two step to launch with and the transmission / clutch did not like high RPM quick shifting. We were hoping to get in the 9s but the shifting and launch issues prevented that. I managed a 10.7 @ 146 MPH.

I have only been flying my mCP X since getting back from IRCHA. I still have some bigger batteries I need to fly down though.

Rick...I've been trying to think of an analogy for the Innovator. I finally did....."All that glitters is not gold". I'm a little slow, but I did finally nailed what I was looking for in the best way to discribe that thing.

Took the two grand daughters out for lunch today, personal pan pizzia at Pizzia Hut. It was FUN.

Also took the snow blower to the shop. He says he's buried in MOWER work and it'll be a while. LMAO, He could take over a month on it and I wouldn't care as long as it gets fixed right.

Barry...I ordered a "passing light" kit and a police style windshield for the Harley yesterday. I found out after a 40 mile round trip at 55mph, a windshield is not optional, it's mandantory. The passing light kit (or light bar), didn't need it but they make the bike look more cool in my book. Maybe next month saddle bags? When daytime highs dont break 45deg, I'm pulling the fenders, oil and gas tanks, and getting a new paint job. By next spring, it'll look like a show bike.

Windy and stormy....no R/C today I think. Haven't even opened the shed today, no point to that.

Innovator r.i.p.

Hobbico sent me a note the INNOVATOR is not repairable and they offered to replace it with the MINI TITAN scale w / 2.4 in desert colors

I accepted

I will report when it arrives.

I am confused and not sure it I moved ahead or backwards

Hey Guys,
I finally got a chance to call Horizon today about the mCP x and the servo issue. I explained the issue and asked if he'd ship me a new servo and he said he'd get one out right away. Talk about awesome customer service!

Jim,
There is a early doe season with gun but I don't do that. Archery opens Oct. 1st. I've enjoyed the trail cam photos and even have a 6 point that hangs out in my area and get's his picture taken regularly.

Barry,
Congrats to Tee!

Vic,
Great you had a wonderful time with your Granddaughters!

Rick,
That's great customer service for them to offer you a mini Titan!

I've been on 12hr days since Saturday and I'm pooped! This won't stop for another 2 weeks. The safety representatives mandate one day off after 14 days so there is a break eventually.

Blessings Y'all!

Jay

Rick- That's super about the mini titan. You should really enjoy it.

Jay- Working in this climate is a good thing! I know you appreciate it while you have it. HH sure knows how to take care of its customers. Glad they did you right.

Vic- The additions to the bike should make it really stand out.

Barry- I'm intrigued now. A big talk show junkie here, from local talk to national.

Ivan- Sorry the last runs didn't go so well. You are meticulous with your work so its just a matter of time till ya get it right.

Had to put getting Phoenix on hold for now. Cracked a tooth last Thursday. Seen the dentist today... needs a crown. 3 visits and $800 Got a temporary crown on it today. Go back on Monday for a mold.

Still not sure what is coming :

this is it: AH - 1W BLUE 2.4 DESERT

it looks to me to be some kind of coax TOY that looks ridiculous
but I have accepted it, so I will post when it arrives
The Hobbico people are VERY difficult to deal with, the exact
opposite of the Horizon crowd

now ENJOY this very off-topic movie : ( still about flight ! )

Volando entre buitres III/ Soaring with vultures III (12 min 48 sec)


from RICK

will probably go out of site since my daughter and G.baby ( 5 y/o) arrive today for a 3 week stay

The dentist visits are no big deal for me. Guess its because I've had so much work done over the years. Heck, I can let him drill without the novacane and it wouldn't bother me. The only part I don't care for is when they shock your roots to see if they are still alive

Barry- Looking forward to hearing Tee when she gets on air. Keep us updated.

Rick- Enjoy the time with the family while they are in. Thanks for sharing the video too.
