one of my sisters lives there, neat place but jobs a little tough with some of the big banks pulling out. She was out of good work for some time...paralegal.

I use CC 10 amp bec... Only 11 grams and programmable in .1v increments from 4.8 to 9v. I use it on my 6v servos and run 8.2 regulated to my HV servos. You could find them for around $20.

The banking industry has always been tough. It was a constant revolving door type place even when the economy was good.

There are lots of other good jobs around - I'd just shy away from the financial industry.

We have a tree at our field that eats 1-2 planes a month. 99% of the time it's a warbird on a long approach. Yesterday I went a little farther than normal to allow for a stiff crosswind. Thought plane was in front of THE TREE, one second before it hit I realized it and pulled up. Still clipped the tree! Nose pitched down hard, but I was already on it and pulled her up and made my landing!!! Went home bought lotto tickets and guzzeled beer! This wonderful plane makes me look better than I am!!!

There is also a tree line at the end of our field......The trick to making sure you don't hit the trees (at any field), is to keep visual daylight/sky between the plane and the trees, until such time as you "know" you are close enough you can't hit them.

Alright guys i have a motrofly 3615-750 that i'll sell for $75 shipped if one of you want it. I did glue the screws that hold the x-mount in with CA so you have to work to get the motor mounted(those who have had this motor know what i mean, it takes some effort to mount but is worth it )

PM me if you're interested i'm going to list it for $80 shipped tomorrow.

I also have 3 hs-5085s for $70 shipped

I'm trying to fund a 71'' electric Slick
