As you can see from the Aquila, at the beginning of my blog, after 40 years I still love the blue and white covering layout
Now I'm just waiting for health and weather to align for its maiden flight... I hope that will be very soon

It's hard to beat the feel and quality of good old Futabas, especially when they are so easy to upgrade them with new technology

This pic shows how I love JB Kwik as a filler AND the major mod I have made to the hull.... It now has backup power to get me out of trouble
(YES my cave is a mess, all I have to say is[GRINS] LOL)

I have decided on tan for the cabins, I think it looks nice?
I need to do a tiny bit of work to damaged hull spots but this should be moving along nicely from here

My re-done Heng Long Panther basket case.... no historical accuracy here folks, but, I like it
It also took two brushed esc's and a 2.4ghz upgrade to make it fun

I still love the old stuff (must be because I am )
Added a mini-t and a Victory Hawk Beast.... I didn't think I would like the mini-t as much as I do parts on order to convert to a mini desert buggy
The Beast is a piece of junk, but a fast one, since it got the brushless.

Many happy times volunteering at Hobbies Galore.
Gary Johnson was my hero, a fantastic person to everyone touched by his presence.
Joel was just a kid then, his dad did everything to support his obvious talent as a driver..... it payed off
