Those the blue ones? Yep sucks.. like the red bullet connectors I just received on the GensAces .... I take a sharp knife and cut the plastic on one side of the base... remove the bullet from within and remove with heat.. I want to preserve the pretinned section :-) cover with tape and repeat in other side...my reward is a one-tap connection with the soldering iron to the deans

Removal of the yellow ones from HK are easier for sure

Todays forecast is 100% chance of not making it :-(

I have no interest in your racist aircraft.

I am hoping to be at foam fest Saturday and Sunday. Sounds like Hitec will be sending Brandon out too. I need to order another EPP and maybe some Depron too.

you forgot about your 68 Velox "Vx" logo... kind of looked like some symbol of the past

sounds like we will be in for foamy fest.... 33 EPP, 2 Deploxes, an EPP Slick, UMX extra, and I will fly the radian indoors

wowsa! what a long boring day! Just got back from Pittsburgh. (Baptism and a picnic afterwards)
here are a few ideas I had while making the 4 hour drive.
* I still have a bundle of fanfold foam if any1 needs some
* i will be ordering a case of EPP foam (12 sheets) if anyone wants any I will sell for what I pay
* still waiting and wanting that BoBo I was promised
* Can you fly any foam plane(SuperCub, Funcub, DJMooses' nitroplane Zero) at the Huckfoam?
* Dave, are you getting the epp Slick?
* I really want one of those shirts given to the first 100.
* with work and all, how can I pull this off to get a shirt?
* i hate windshield wipers
* 70mph on Ohio Tpike, thats kewl
* $4.80 on penna tpike to go 2 exits highway robbery

Yep ... building right now

Just fashioned my own prop saver out of a wheel collar and a couple cap screws

Thinking about going without wheels and a lighter weight setup

I tried a prop saver set up on the fun cub....wow it was cool to see a prop come flying off

And building my epp this week after I get back from KY, got her all hinged up and fuse starting to come together. Gotta love the smell of welders
