No rush, my wife informs me that I'm taking her to Vegas for the weekend so I won't be able to fly anyway.

Yeah, I have heard that story from a mutual flying buddy!
Maybe the Hitec Aurora with it's real time battery telemetry would have helped to prevent that!??
Or, maybe a new and cycled battery! at any rate, not your fault that time, sir!

Just WOW!

Sincere thanks to Alvaro who went way above and beyond on the repairs and paint on my planes!!!

The Target looks like a brand new plane and he did some extra work to make it perfect.

My highest possible endorsement - if you need a repair or just want your plane to look brand spanking new you have a place to go.

I'll post pics when I get a chance.

My fun

The color scheme is awesome...but my pleasure is to see a model leave in perfect condition after a paint / repair session.
The black looked like a "black lacquered piano", the orange and yellow are very fun and will add to the visibility in flight.
The tow hook re-install looks great (black oxide / ss screws on the black fuse) and mechanically solid.

Thanks Mike, enjoy it !
