Hey Art,

Know anybody who has a boat?

Better, yet! Add floats and wheel retracts to one of your planes so you can land on runway or river!

your last video was fabulous. I forgot to mention that. the sound effect and traffic chatter are spot on. Very entertaining

You must have me mixed up with Trappy or somebody?

Never know when the wind could shift and push me south...

LOL looked at it again, missed all the sound the first time cause my daughter was sleeping and I didn't have the earphones. Very nice and "mostly" realistic...I'm not sure the airliners pilots do it "under the jacket"...

...they don't, right ?

I'm on the lookout for a suitable set of floats for the Seniorita.

I've started assembly, very nice ARF, looks like all the hardware is useable.

Trying a little suspension on the nose wheel.
Senoirita nosewheel suspension (0 min 8 sec)


Bought a set of Ski goggles today, I've ordered the headplay mask from Rob, should make a great addition to the goggles. Won't have to drape my jacket over my head anymore.

Ski goggles worked for me but I do not have the headplays.

the other solution is a loose fitting beanie had (like those worn by youngsters, they look like Smurfs when they use it ) the beanie hat is nice in winter keeps your head warm and in summer it keeps the flies away but they can feel like a Sauna

How about:

- Please don't tell I'm watching a Chuck Norris movie ?

- Hidding from paparazzi ?

or

- Don't have my monitor yet, just pretending to fly FPV...
