I was out at the field today, flying my 51" Slick. Someone in a grey Tahoe pulls in and didn't think much of it, becuase people come in and out a lot.
I take off, do my thing, and then harrier land, and someone shouts "Is that an 8ch Futaba?!"
It was my flight instructor! I have never flown with him except my first flight, when I had an old 4ch Tactic Radio FM and a Hobbico Superstar EP.
The reason he had said "Is that an 8ch Futaba?" is because I had sent him an email telling him about my 51 Slick, etc.
Point of story: last time he had seen my fly was my first flight, August of 2011, and he had to land the plane.
Now he pulls by and sees my doing rolling harriers 5 ft off the deck and hovering a yard from my face
It sounds lame, I know, but it was just really cool for me.
He is a VERY avid modeler. He has a whole separate HUGE SHED for building, storing and fling indoor micro's

Congrats- you should feel proud of your progress, and your instructor should be proud of your progress. It all begins with a solid foundation....

I would just like to say again that (and I am sure I sound like a fanboy)...3DHS service is second to none....

Here's a coincidence. I just looked up that very screw. it's the thing that's going to keep me from maidening my Byper this weekend!

Hitting the hardware store tomorrow to see of they have something this size. Otherwise I will have to buy the whole replacement gear set.

I'm looking for the HS 85, but Alans info covers the 65 (same screw).
