Sean, if I were to live in FL, what would it mean if I hang that block?

And yet still, whyyyyyyy? Don't those suckers fall out of the trees sometimes? Especially if the yokel tied it up with rope. I can see them singing through the air like missiles in a hurricane.
:headwall:

Nah, if I had spare engine blocks laying around, I'd use them as, well, blocks, and sit stuff on them.

NZ7C, haven't heard anything yet.

Katie, you always hang those blocks with cotton rope, NEVER use chain. When it eventually breaks you just pray the Heeler ain't asleep under it.

Another highly prized lawn ornament around here is plastic pink Flamingos. I was with my dad one morning in Home Depot and they had just gotten a shipment of them in. I tried to get him to buy me a couple of cases of them for my birthday. My plan was to display them as below with a sign captioned:

Sean... You have a sick and twisted sense of humor. No wonder you were one of the first members of the Balsa Brewers. That Katie likes it shows just why she was admitted into the fold. (See guys... The Brewers are NOT just about building planes! We have a very twisted side to us as well. )

My wife has a great sense of humor unless it's morbid humor involving animals. ANY animals. She is no fun sometimes.

A couple of years ago my daughter and I made the old fake hatchett buried in the head prop for my Schnauzer. We got him to wear it by giving him treats if he had it on. He loved it at Halloween. Kids would come up the driveway and give him candy. You couldn't get it off him. Wife came home and saw him running around the yard with it. She knew it was fake immediately and knew exactly where it came from. Not amused.


Next project: Zombie yard gnomes.

Sean,

Flamingo flu epidemics, cat brain eating babies, what is going on down there in Florida?

No zombies up here in Minnesota. You ever notice that zombie movies are always located some place warm? Old man winter saves the day.

Hahaha, always get a kick from this thread! Loving the redneck/bogan/birdflu/zombie vibe thats happening

As for kits, I'm starting on my DJAeroTech Chrysalis HLG and was wondering on electronic recommendations - this is what I'm thinking so far:

HK15168 (9g) servos (or 5g Turnigy 1440A) on pull-pull
300mAh lipo single-cell with 5v regulator (10g)
4ch DSM2 rx from HKing (2.5g)

Does that sound good at all? I know the kit was built with both standard and micro gear in mind but I was wondering exactly how light I could go before it becomes hard to balance. I suppose, worst coming to worst, I could always use a larger lipoly cell up front for balance if need be. I've got a few single cells and spare packs hanging around in the 180 to 1000mAh range.

Any opinions would be great, haven't built a glider kit before and was just wondering what the best way about it would be. Basically I'm after lightness, efficiency and usability.

Cheers - boingk

Wayne,

You have a valid point. Zombies, sick Flamingos, gators, snakes, bugs and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Never a dull moment here on the redneck Riviera. Even my lovely wife almost got her hand removed by a POed momma dolphin late one night.

We were out in the boat .................uhhhhh..........gazing at the stars when I decided to bang on the side of the hull to attract a few of our gray buddies for her entertainment. A pair showed up promptly and and circled. Wife was fascinated. At one point Junior arrived and stuck his head out of the water. Wife had "Flipper" flashbacks, deciding that a little pat on the head was just what a baby needed. I saw her reach her hand down and pat his cute little head. Luckily I was sober enough to grab a handful of long blonde hair and snatch her back just as momma recreated a scene from Jaws. She missed my wife's arm by maybe a foot. Of course J sat there on the deck stunned. I had to relate the problem by asking her what she would think if a huge bear decided to play patti cake with one of her kids when they were 5 YO. She finally got the picture.

Some night I'll tell the story of my wife and the huge, HUGE flock of seagulls that used her for target practice. I didn't even recognize her when she returned from the dock. That little episode took 3 rechargings of my 60 gallon water heater (about an hour and a half in my shower) and two runs through the washing machine and dryer to erase. That taught that Oklahoma cowgirl that an extra large bag of popcorn and waterfowl don't mix.
