Parkflyer's Xmas wish list

I'd would like you Ideas for low priced Christmas wish list items. I can think of many Items over $50. It's the lower end range to replace the Ties, shaving lotion, shirts ... that I really appreciate and rarely use. So send me you ideas!
I was thinking about the under $25and $25 to $50 prices range.

I "fly" (I actually ran a 800mAh battery down to cutoff in my slowstick last weekend, a first) the slowstick, a beat up minimax, and a picostick.
Thanks,
Dave Morris

You can always use battery packs. Also spare props, and wheels.
Just some examples from off the top of my head.

Hello,

Get a catalog, like Hobby-Lobby, mark some products and just leave it laying around. If you are new at flying, try a flight simulator like Cockpit Master Backyard Edition $39.00, but I have no idea how good it is. You could ask for building supplies, tools, coverings, batteries, GWS charger ($40?), etc...

Here's some goodies I ask for:
Wattage Crazy Max $49.99
Covering Iron $20
Heat Gun $20
Battery heat shrink $3.60 for 5'

Props will fit great in your stocking!

My wife and twins kept asking for gift ideas for me so I marked up my Tower and Hobby People Cataloges plus sent them links from MM, Hobby-Lobby, Daves, Arenablimp, Office Products, CMS and a couple of others to give them plenty of selection.

Then my wife goes: "Can't you think of anything besides plane stuff?" I told her I looked at Sears and Wallyworld but they didn't have anything I wanted. I also mentioned that if she gave me the credit card on HL's day after Thanksgiving sale she wouldn't have to worry about picking out anything!!

I think these gift certs can be purchased on line, but cannot be used on line.

DO NOT BUY Cockpit Master Backyard Edition !!!

I bought it and can't seem to get any support. Plus there is a joystick problem thats needs a patch but there are no patch for win98 and the support people won't respond to emails. I would stay away form this rip off product ... Just use FMS ...


I feel better now ...

I asked for, and my wife ordered, a compressor for my airbrush. $99-
Treated myself to a 30" machine cut kit of the Cunningham-Hall GA-36. $34.95 from Penn Valley Hobbies. They have lots and lots of old rubber kits. Some good for conversion to parkflying which is what I plan to do with the GA-36. Won't be available 'till after January though.

I asked my wife for a dubro electric caddy - the new bag. It's around $25. I need someplace to dump all the batteries and extras. I'm getting tired of stuff just being all over the place!
