Micro Thread Index (the best place to start)
This is an experiment, a thread of threads. You post what threads in indoor and micros you think contain info so useful that they shouldn't be forgotten/lost.
I'll decide if you're right ( ) and add them to this message at the top of the thread and try to group them etc, this will keep this thread super short and easy to reference.
show off those ar6400 planes!
