Sooo I had left my car at the dealer the other day for a major service. They had it parked outside, and in broad daylight someone broke my window and took about $700 worth of stuff from my car (iPod, radar detector, etc). Thankfully the dealer is footing the bill and replacing everything. Sucks tho to have things stolen.. They got it on camera and the cops are working to catch the guy..
sorry about the car man. the dealer might cover the cost, but it will take a while for you to get used to the new radar detector, to put the songs back into your ipod... hope you get things up and running again soon

Aazam, sweet flight! Looks like an awesome wing

Also you're going to have to show me your bungee launch technique because that's been my last hold out for launching the Zeph I built last fall.

thanks, I love this plane. So much fun to fly, and it handles wind like a champ.

As for the bungee. Its simple in theory, kinda complex in practice. The release is servo activated so I don't have to sit near the plane to launch it. And its consistent. It always launches the same every time barring a mess up in setup.
