I'm excited, though. If UPS thinks it's here in San Diego, then it must be. Only about a million other houses to check.
By the way, how's that 50 motor sized bipe coming along?
Ahhhhh ... the neighbor across the street came to our front door after breakfast this morning, carrying a right-sized box with the "DO NOT CRASH" markings! After rewarding him with a cuppacoffee, I came in to give thanks for the AMR. Today, I'm a happy camper. In a couple of days, weather permitting, I'll be an even happier flyer.

Please contact Steve @ PA USA for replacement under warranty.
He’ll be able to instruct you what to do with the faulty pack.

Edge, I like your foamies.

My AMR's ready to fly, just have to wait for it to stop snowing.......

Flopgun,

Woho! She is pretty! The color kind of suits the Christmas theme!

All you need to do now is to go out and shoot a video flying the AMR wearing santa's suit...the background music is Jingle bells with the folowing lyrics:-

Jingle Bells Jingle Bells
Hovering all the way
Oh what fun it is to fly
Tumblin all the waaaaay!
Heeeey!

Well, RR, I forgot the hat, but I was humming Jingle Bells on the maiden.

Very fun plane, I can't wait to get some more flights in.

FG, congratulations for a great maiden flight!

Now you are all set for the next weekends and X-Mas holidays. I am sure you will love that plane.

Cheers, BT

PS: Did you get your X-Mas tree on the previous picture from the flying site?

Hey Flopgun,

Excellent video. I can see you are already comfortable with it especially flying low. Awesome maiden flight dude!

With so much snow it would keep people away from the parks.

Nice and warm here. About 30c in Sydney.

All this PA stuff is just so nice!

Its only a 12x6 made for the t30's, but a 13 is the project for next week. 40c summer days are good for making stuff.
I hate cutting the spinners, I'm always getting it wrong and three blades doesn't help. Can we buy new spinner cones?
