Well let me know if you want a FB 51. I have a few spare parts for it, gave the wings away a couple months back. I brought it to the FLI, but never flew it, just getting my 5 tickets out of it. I'm in Houston often and will be in College station in a month picking up my son.

Always said I'd have a 51, but maybe not. Once I get use to flying the 71 in the front yard....well....I have to stop now...I'm getting misty.

Personally I'd like a KE into a 5 wire fence we have at the end of the field.
how much do you want for the 51" FB?!??!?!?

It's RTF...just drop in your Rx. It's a recommended setup. PM me your email and I'll shoot you some pics if you are really interested. It'll go into my 50cc fund.

I'd love to see some more 3D Addicts / Fanatics / or what not there!

I don't like the FB unless you red bull it but that takes a ton of graphics which are not cheap.

I like the new scheme but would rather have the old orginal red scheme that AJ came up with and still uses with most of his planes no matter what it is.

I keep forgetting this show is in June now...

We went in Sept. 2002 and it was 96° that Saturday... My daughter was only 5 and they ran out of water that day and you weren't allowed to have your own coolers because of post 9/11 enhanced security. Fortunately we bought up extra water before they ran out.

In fact I am sitting here wearing my Gathering of Corsairs Indy TShirt now! Lots of little holes in it now, falling apart. Still a favorite! I think they are still available on Cafe Press though. I think there were 16 Corsairs that made it. They had hoped for 25. It was Great though!!!

Great Flying variety Joe, but I missed the (MSG), Mass Smoke Generator.
