Post your "NEW Years Reslolutions"

Here are mine:

1) Always do a good range check.

2) Not try to get just one more lap around the field on this charge.

3) Hand launch my own models.

4) Learn what that channel called "Throttle" is for !

My Resolutions

1) Tired of flying alone, look for a group or club.
2) Make a pilgrimage to a Fly-in this year.
3) Actually find a GOOD place to fly, instead of wasting my time and busting up models.
4) Stop making resolutions; as I can never keep them
5) Get married. (It's the only way to get another Giant Scale lol I hate blackmail)
