This is one of a rare breed from "Jerry L Smith" Paducah KY, when he made the circuits of the big fly ins in his red corvette. I don't think to many full kits like this where made in favor of just selling plans with instructions. This box seal was never opened until me this evening cause I really needed to know what's in the box prior to selling off.

Well it does not look like I will ever get to this project, heck did not even remember I had bought it until a recent hunt in the barn for JR Matchboxes someone was in need of. I wanted to time capsule document prior to selling off.

So I bought my grandson a 3D printer to learn and make my concepts to hawk around the countryside. This is first out of the gate and is adjustable for all brands I tested at a 100 pilot event.

The purpose and what it does has become more important with the rising use of flight controller axis gyros that respond with much more accuracy to a sticks pot centering. If the inside of your TX foam is chucked up where stick ends or your case is oriented on sides versus back, you may want to purchase one, It will be $15 delivered CONUS in the classifieds. Thank for looking,

After 10 years of flying the nitro version converted to electric it sucumbed to a dumb thumb,, , I then tried the EF E-Version Outlaw of which I quickly folded in half in 3 weeks time, After a 2 year withdrawal I found a NIB " Ole Skool Nitro" version and decided to recover to a Hi-Vis color scheme and some cooling/drag imporvements for the upcoming 2020 season.........

When Sara and Roger Parish retired several years ago, I purchased their share (43%) of the company for $56,000.00 to keep Wren open and solvent. I also loaned the company 20,000 GBP (at the time the exchange rate equaled $34,000.00) to keep the doors open. Mike Murphy personally signed a contract for this loan, which was never honored. Little did I realize that they were in such financial trouble. So when they took a "Voluntary Liquidation", I lost all investments I had put in the company. If you watch their Face Book site...anytime someone posts a question regarding their order that has been paid for but not filled...the posts mysteriously disappear. Although I was with the company for more than 7 years, and a major shareholder, I had no say in the day to day operations of the company.
After they filled liquidation, the company changed names and reopened days later under a new name at the same address. They had listed very little inventory at the time of the liquidation, but were advertising new motors days later. I agreed to leave the company and turn over my shares if the orders that I had already been placed and paid for were honored and delivered. Otherwise I would have had to reimburse all of the US customers that had prepaid for motors (in excess of $22,000.00)
They walked away from more than 400,000.00 GBP of outstanding debt, so I feel lucky that my personal loss was not more !
This will be my only post regarding this issue. The real facts and the truth are out there. You just have to search for the truth...

With 4 grandsons and taking 3 to efest, I was asked many times by some notable legends how the heck do I get them going so young.

This is Tanner age 7"aprox 1 minute in
Hobbico's eFest 2015 - RCGroups Coverage (6 min 7 sec)

I think too many view it as a desire to fly model planes, is what I was hearing from most now with kids or grandkids awaiting some desire to follow in footsteps, I guess I never viewd that way.? I have always tried to buy a gift good or bad that makes a memmory that 12 months later they remember it, This grampbro does not take orders for gifts. My daughter now 27 still remembers the slot car track she got for Cmas age 10.

Horizon Hobbies does not recommend any rc related toy under the age of 12,

My training is One instruction
Let the throttle stick go, and No buddy BOX

At age 3 they get a Blade Scout with a rubber band equipped on throttle stick and given one instruction. Let the stick go before you hit some thing.Grandma actually does more training than me making sure it is available when babysitting.He goes up/down for hours on end

Next up is Yellow Blade heli now 2 working sticks, rubber band on throttle same drill let it go before you hit something.

Next is a Blade quad, same drill rubberband on throttle, They really start connecting motor skills with nothing to refference, Tanner would fly a quad in a small long hallway so fast I was amazed how fast he grasped both sticks.

Next up...Continue Reading
