Hello Rick,

Sorry I did not see your plea for urgent help. But what the guys told you is exactly the way to do it. I hope it all works out for you.

Vic- I thought the same thing. Just wondering if this was staged or not. Something just doesn't sit quite right with me about it.

Kyle- Cool you are having fun with that quad copter. Smiles are what its all about!

Showing 15 on our thermometer right now. Yep, winter isn't gone just yet.....

The sun hitting my shed today warmed it up to 40deg in there today, I doubt we broke 30 deg for a high all day. I didn't even like getting out of the car to pump gas, the wind went right through me.

Just laying low for now, not getting much done except making sure the wife is OK.....and that's a LOT in it's self.

Hello Boy's,

We have cold weather and rain here in Sunny California...........AGAIN.

Here is my latest project, A 550 Hexa Flamewheel. On board we have the Naza with GPS, and for power we have 6 ea. HD1000kv motors and a 3S 5000 mAh pack for some umoof! The camera gimbal is set up and plugged into the Naza for auto level control. She is very steady and that's why I stepped up from my 450 Flame Wheel to the 550. I use the 450 Quad copter for day and night flying with the guys. This baby is for daytime videos only!

Kyle, I showed my wife the LadyBug Quad and have been trying to get her involved, she said so sweetly NO!............. she'd rather sow and sip wine LOMAO dang.........

Jim, your right, that is just the right size to chase the Cat around the house.

Vic, hope the wife is on track with her recovery.

JPEE

That copter is sweet Jpee! Has it been airborne yet? It looks as though it would be a very stable platform for ariel videos, hope to see some soon.

JPEE...wow, that thing is impressive. My wife and I have a total agreement on hobbies, she doesn't like mine and I dont like hers so we dont even go there. HOWEVER....she does like to shoot a hog leg once in a while, but it's been years since she's put bullets down range. I COULD NOT get her on the Harley, she said she never will and I dropped it right there.

Kyle,

I like the RC Logger, looks like a great time. Just wait awhile and you'll get hooked and want a bigger one. Lol

Jim,

The 4x4 looks great, you and the boys will have a great time with some family competition.
Try a 3s battery in it, it'll really haul some butt then.

JPee,

The hex is looking outstanding, when you get some footage post it here first. Anxious to see that.

Jay,

Hope things are doing well for ya? Retracts, how cool is that. Great price too.

Vic,

Have you got your bike painted yet? I know you sent it out to your brother.

Me,
No RC lately, super windy most of the time. But Liz is keeping me busy, we're in process of a total remodel of our bathroom and bedroom. New sinks, new faucets, new carpeting, etc.
The sinks and faucets were 42 years old and looked it. Lmao! Time for a change.

Well...NOT the SOS here, pretty busy. Traded in the wifes 2009 Ford Fusion today, got her a 2013 Fusion, not that she can drive it right now. I'm NOT as impressed with this one as I was with the 2009 when we got it. The 2013 is nice, and has all the modern stuff, but I like simple, and the 09 was a simple car. I'll be driving my truck more now, it's simple.

Snow...we ended up with about 4", the road crews had it clean by noon when we left to pick up her new ride.

Dave....the bike parts are in Dallas, my brother is doing the paint now. I just about got all the work here on the bike that needed done, it's done and waiting for the parts to come back.

Gonna check out a Stampede like Jims for the grandson.....I see it comming soon. I bought the #1 gtrandaughter a Nintendo DS and a couple games. The grandson gets a Stampede, the #2 granddaughter wants a "Kindle Fire". I do NOT even know what it is yet .

Just staying busy, helping the wife. Getting #3 granddaughter Leia tomorrow, taking her home Monday......give dad a BREAK.
