Ho ho ho...Santa came early!!!!

The fat man in the red suit came early this year!!!! Was going to give family a list with wanted arf's/engines. This way, whatever they picked, it woulda been something I had my eyeball on. However, a week ago, was at the LHS lookin around for ideas and spied a completely built Pete 'N Poke hanging from the ceiling. Has a brand spankin new Saito .56 in it. Well, I brought it home this eve. Wife wanted me to be surpised but man I fell in love with that thing.
Will post a pic when I can find the batts for this stupid digital camera. Its done in red and like an off-white monokote. Very pretty and I know the guy who built it. And the price!!!!!!!! We're talking a saito here...$225 for plane and engine!
Damn saitos, the .56 anyways are $194 new. So I felt I got a great deal!
I wonder how I can swing in a Great Planes Lancair now!!!!

O'tay, here is a pic of the Pete 'N Poke. I have the struts for it just didn't put them on for the picture. Don't know when I'll get to fly her. I need to get 3 more servos for it.
