Me and the wife often go to the local park just to walk a lap or two around the small lake there. Some of the locals will fish off the bank, and typically catch small perch or whatever the native little fish are (looks to be some sort of cichlid to me). I've never fished off the bank there, but I always get a kick out of seeing a little kid with a fish on the line. I was a little kid once too, and at that age any fish on the line is a big game fish. At any rate, we were walking the park and I see a young fella with what appears to be quite a fish on the line. He's got a simple cane pole, and it's bent over like a willow in a stiff wind. So naturally we walk over to see how things turn out, and the guy brings in this really nice carp. The fella said he had landed one even larger than this earlier that had a more golden/yellow hue that he had put back in the water. He offered to let me hold this one up before we put it back in the lake. Beautiful fish really, so I had my wife snap a photo of me and this gentle guy before letting it go. He was there simply for catch 'n release, which I can admire. That's a true purist fisherman in my book.

Picture of a Graupner 42mm spinner. These are pretty nice quality spinners. They use machined steel collet with a nice retaining washer and steel nut. The collet is threaded though the center for a small bolt to retain the plastic spinner (2mm metric bolt I beleive). This one is for a folding prop setup, but the yolks can be swapped out, or removed and the plastic spinner cone shaped to fit the hub/root of a fixed prop.

A couple of pics of a few of the WMParkflyer EPP Yak foamies that I assembled. I built a couple of club guys, and have a few more I put together in my free time that I'd like to sell. Granted shipping is a bit spendy when it's all built and ready to go, but that's the cost of having something arrive that's truely ready to fly.

I like this xtranormal.com website. It makes it easy to make neat videos. Here's a parody on what it would like to have the perfect woman....

Click the link....I don't think the attached pic will hyperlink to the video.

Just a few random pics of some of the Cookville Yaks I came across over at the ProBro site. My apologies to any Bros that might feel their publicly posted pics that I'm heisting & posting here are off limits. Neener neener (it's a ProBro thing....)

I have an unbuilt kit whose time has come. I wonder if these are still available.

A few detail pics of the gear install on the Mojo 60 (thanks to Jeffery) along with pics of hack job under the wing to get larger 6S 5000 lipo pack inside the wing (could've made a hatch to cover the larger hole).
Initially we tried running one 6S 3200 pack that would fit using just the one larger hole just behind the spar, but it didn't deliver the watts. To fit the larger 5000 pack in we had to go with a hold in the TE so we could go straight in with the pack instead of tilting it at an angle.
