...while you're making other plans.

That, by the way, is a quote from Allen Saunders and not John Lennon. Lennon used the quote in the lyrics of "Beautiful Boy," one of his last compositions.

That said, I haven't made any progress on the little Thunder Tiger Bearcat since last we met here on the blogs. That missing motor bearing might be an unusual 3.17mm version and there were none to be found at the hobby shop. I'm just going to install an E-flite and be done with it soon.

Lots of professional stuff has kept me busy, but in a remarkably nice way. Details to follow.

In the meantime: Lots of great hobby stuff is on its way to the electric flight review pages! I'm covering the HobbyKing Super-G autogyro, the HobbyKing micro B-17 and the Joe-Hanson Vesper II utility airplane. The latter is a foam board model designed and produced by an RCGroups.com user, namely "Hansondiandian" out of Texas. It's a very utilitarian model which can be used as an FPV platform, camera platform or even an aileron trainer. I'm simply waiting for parts and supplies to complete all three models.
