Thanks for the well wishes guys. We are home as of this afternoon. Mom and baby are healthy and we have an army of Grandparents here lending a helping hand for the evening. I almost forgot how tiring a newborn was. Wouldnt trade it for the world though.

Good to hear from you Mike. Let us know when you get back and well organize something on a flyable day!

I am off all this week and the first week in January, so I hope that I will get a few hours here and there to sneak out as a grandparent or sibling comes to visit. For now...there is always the simulators

-Mike

Seems silly for a guy 20-ft above the slopes to bend his knees to catch a few more feet of air... he's already milked it for hundreds of yards.

Wonder if they'd make an old-man's version... with working flaps?

Okay, I am a little slow but in searching for something else I found two pics on Hobby Lobby's site about SEFF. On page four they have a pic of my Omega 1.8 and my Filip 400RG. They labeled it as the Filip 600. That must be the one they sell. There is another pic of it going "vertical" on the same page.

Merry Christmas!

I made it on the DVD!
Just a bit part though, not a Speaking or Flying role

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone. I got about 15 minutes with my Shocky in the front yard. Dang..I am rusty. Still a bit of a fix that I needed anyway.


Hope you all have a merry XMAS. Maybe we can all get together soon and a have a mini reunion at the Drones soon.

Jason, I was going to PM you but what the heck, you may still awake. I have been "rounding out" the Dynamic Racer here lately (after sitting round for a year ((last years Christmas present)). I'll have the Mega 3 turn and a TP Gen II 2100. People are loving this setup as long as the full throttle bursts are kept to a minimum for battery heat reasons. Should be a trip.
Hope all is well...
Kip
