Family, long travels to work and back, late autumn/winter time, another interests, lack of money,... All of it doesn't help much, does it?

Does finding that part make your Belt operational? I hope so....

Man, you guys doing all that Smack Down (Iím envious ). On another note, the weather up my way has been nothing short of fabulous considering its late Nov. We had a snowstorm last month on these dates (24th & 25th) Since then itís been well above Normal for this time of the year. Hovering around 10C during the day. Nice break to say the least.

Spent the better part of the afternoon at the park, a tad chilly but with little wind the flying conditions were excellent. No, no piro-flipping for this guy, and I have an inkling there never will be. Iíll leave that smack down to young fellaís.
Nevertheless, had a blast doing my old routines, which varied between decent and terrible. Almost dumb thumbed the Trex 500 twice. Kind of thought I was beyond that. Sure woke me up!! Being an older guy sure had me smiliní when the muscle memory kicked inÖ

Looks like this may be it for the season. Future forecast looks pretty gloomy.

For those that may be interested, Towers has a pretty good price on the GY520 tilí the 30th. With a coupon discount roughly 120.

Well, heck; mist and fog and maybe-rain. Thanks to GunnyGlow for tipping us off about Readi-heli. By the time I got there the Trex stuff was gone but I'll bet there were a lot of happy campers yesterday.

Really? I'm pretty sure I had over $200 worth of free stuff. My total did end up being $60....with a few non-free goodies. But I don't think my non-free goodies totaled anywhere near the $60 it cost to order.
I just kinda thought most of it was shipping...... ??





I should also make mention of the KBDD HP450 paddles I put on my SEv2 today. IN-SANE change in cyclic response. Even the collective seemed substantially better. Don't know why they would affect collective...but....THEY KICK ARSE!!!!

I have 45 dialed in for expo and it is still too snappy for my out-of-practice thumbs!!

I've also stepped up to a 4S/Neu 1107Y setup and it, also, is a kick in the pants. Not to mention the Heimjoint tail grip weight mod I put on it......supa dupa!!


The performance of my "old style" 450 really blew me away today. I don't think I'll ever get rid of this bird.....
