So I've not done a good job at all with keeping current on the blog. For example, the 87" SHP featured in my pictures has been mine for many months now (woohoo!). It is interesting that the "bunch o' guitars" picture is by far the most downloaded thing that I have posted. Anyhoo... I did finally sign up for Vimeo (since I ran out of video space here on RCG long ago); here is a video that Dan (Chip Geek) captured at a recent guerrilla fly-low-in we had:

Also since the cool guys here have sponsor vendors that provide them with the best gear, I've attached a .jpg from my battery sponsor

I finally had the pleasure of meeting Ben Fisher (blucor basher) of 3D Hobbyshop at the Cen-Tex Modelers Big Bird event June 7 in Killeen, TX. Brett (smelyal8r) was also there and Ben was nice enough to set each of us up with an 85" Katana for the day. We also got to try Ben's prototype 87" SHP - wow what a plane! This was my first giant scale flying and although there was a lot of wind, we had a great day flying (and all three of the big birds survived without incident). Thanks again, Ben!

Here's some pictures (I also posted a couple to threads out there):

I've never bothered to blog before but decided to add a few photos today. Airplanes and guitars is the theme...
