Will it help me interpret Jon's posts? If so, then YES please. I will even stick it somewhere . Thank you GMo!

Yup, not having jobs kills us; and having them kills us too. A vicious double edged sword. Best of luck to you. Let us know how we can help. I know, move to Utah! Lots of work here...

Are you still planning on the JEM?

And like Mike says, if you want to launch to the freakin moon, the Steig is your ticket, DANG!!!!!!! Finch & I were flippin Mikes Steig a few months a go, and........ well, she went pretty freakin high.
Nothing like a Concept. Concept will go higher than Steig any day try it and see

Ditto what Mike said, but with a single caveat. It's probably just just me but I find I have fewer drops if I really fly the plane into my hand with some speed. Not enough speed that you'd damage the wing tip, but not going really slow either. When it's just floating right there dead calm in the air I tend to grab for the plane and often miss. So it's better for me to just fly the plane into my palm.

But catching and throwing is the (relatively) easy part... it's timing it right that's the killer. I did 30 min of QT practice tonight and it took almost 20 min for me to get into the groove and start consistently catching with 1-2 sec left in the countdown. I have a picture in my mind's eye of how far the plane should be from me with 4 seconds left allowing me to either slow it down a bit or speed it up those last couple seconds.

You must fly the wing tip meaning the peg into the hand watch peg only to get to be best.

CONCEPT X2 is on order. I've got the early march slot, anyone interested in me doubling the order? No, I will not pay for yours. I question his RDS463 servos. They should be fine in the wings but I wonder if I should just pass on his servos and go for some good hitechs... Any comments you concept guys? I did request to upgrade the servos all the way around though...

So if I am using my decoder ring on your last 10 post, you seem to indicate you like the concept......

And Brian, sorry, but you are TP. The bad news is that TBM is the only local guy who could tell you exactly why.

That's because the best pilots are flying Concepts.

We all want one (or more), but making that happen is tough!

Yo George, it will be a hoot. Team Utah will be coming down there with one goal!!!!!!! and that will be to fly in better weather than we have been flying in here. Dont let us down SOCAL!!!!!!!!!!!

When I signed up for JEM I had visions of leaving a few feet of snow and freezing temps. Turn out I might be going from 50's to 60's..... Oh well.

So I think I might officially be a DLG groupy as I cant wait to see all my flippin friends again @ JEM!!!!!! Oh, its gonna be a good time.

And NO everybody doesnt want a Concept! Some of us are just content beating Concept pilots with a B3OL!!!!!! Hey, it could happen!!!!!!

As I recall, Jun won the BSOUT prelims and flyoffs this year flying his Stobels, and against multiple top pilots driving Concepts...
