I saw a guy with only 500 posts under his belt made a Plus user.
What's the secret handshake? What IS so special about being Plus? I can't find much information on it.

If I tell ya, then I'd have to kill ya.

There isn't much special about it yet. RCG is just getting feedback from us on some upgraded features, and soliciting suggestions on features that we would want to see if/when they go back to having paid membership. The main benefit right now (for me) is the boost in my PM mailbox. Instead of a limit of 200 messages, I now have 2,000. I don't have to clear out my mailbox as often anymore.

Looks like I need to stalk more palindromes.

Hey, how did you guys like the pictures? It's the first time I've been up that-a-way when the fog was pouring through the Golden Gate like that. Really pretty. BTW, folks always say how deceptively fast those container ships are, and how slow they look-- well, I timed that one I got the pictures of- it took just three minutes to go from Alcatraz to the Gate. Three minutes! It would take me three hours in my little sailboat, and that's with a complimentary tide.

I'm working on sticking a series of short videos together of Sunday's F3J practice session. Just a bunch of launches and landings, then the last launch that went sour. (isn't it always the last one?) The line broke under tension, and the thrower fell backwards, raking the plane with him.

The super-light competition stab was creased. Fortunately, we have a composites guru in the club. The stab will be fixed, without much weight added.

If Bob allows, I'll add the stumble at the end of the video I'm editing.

Hey Lil,

Where were those F3J flights?

Oh, and I heard that Bob has given permission to post video of the stumble. So please feel free to post it right away.

I wish I had speakers on this computer. I'll have to wait til I get home to hear what this sounds like. I wouldn't be able to handle this type of flying. I'd get dizzy, and my arm and neck would be sore within a few seconds.

Control line combat. They only hint at it at the air show, pretty much the only time I see control line. Interesting, but too noisy for me. And too fast!

Pinky, we were doing this in Fremont (NorCal). Look out, South Africa, here comes Bob! You can bet, if he's at the monthly contest, the first place award already has his name on it. He can catch lift off the exhaust vent of the local McDonalds. I can't even get halfway there without joining the trees for lunch.
