I cant remember. the guy that owns e and s trains flew with us 1 time and brought out the PZ mini sukhoi and another mini PZ plane. maybe Dave will remember what he brought. one of the 2 planes hugged. The other flew ok.

have we introduced you to this beauty?



why have the guy try to harrier a cessna when you can put this in the air

you can always give him you PA260.......

Sam digs his PA Addiction and it was so floaty it really helped him on inverted flying..... Even Arron busts my balls all the time (rightly so) to break the chain and let him fly it solo..... he does now on the Addiction unless it has been a few weeks and I play safety guy on the first flight

the SHP has been awesome for Sam as well. He has it in the air all the time and it tracks very well in wind. I can think of only one time I had to save it...if he can wake up on a Saturday or Sunday sometime he might even be soloing it soon.... I just want to wait till all my stuff is built / repaired (hahaha) first

Looks like the yellow ones are gone so in a couple weeks, take all the PA 260 stuff out of that and give him a SHP

The school's nickname, "Zips," is a shortening of "Zippers," a pair of rubber overshoes and a brand name of the BF Goodrich Company of Akron. It was originally adopted by the school in 1925 after a contest to give the school a nickname. Interestingly, "Kangaroos" was one of the choices at the time. In 1950, the current nickname was adopted because of the rising popularity of zippers in use on pants. Three years later, a committee suggested the kangaroo as a mascot, and it was accepted by the student council on May 1, 1953. Originally, it was met with derision, as it was not put to a campuswide vote. However, over time, Zippy has become a fan favorite at the school

this story? I know you are on the road so I wikipediaed it for you

yep that is the story. i still think that the reason it cost me 60 thousand a year to pay for wifes schooling is to pay for the imported kangaroo food. I was voting on stray cats in the akron area. they feed there self

nice in concept......would have been better if it were over a lake...... or on some salt bed.... on an active street? Ooooooffff

ultimately better if someone ran it over after he landed :-)

it is dorfs like that who are of the same ilk as the dudes flying 450 helis at a playground with kids all over..... this moron nailed a 17 year old girl.... you get to see how much fun she had 45 seconds in. I remember seeing this come out from AMA.... the local RC club raised all kinds of money to help the girl's medical expenses since the redneck flying in the park wasn't a responsible pilot..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KDVbk2Sunk

stuff of local news stories where that plane either hit a van or caused some other dumb injury....

Now, if it was a 126" Slick..... thats another thing......that would be cool :-)

...would be amusing to rock such a little event


As for Stacks-on-sticks... that's an anytime event as far as I'm concerned. Just give me a call when you're approaching the house so I can at least meet you at the door with some pants on.
