Looks GREAT Bob!!! I like the new work area and all the planes. Especially one.

Glad you saved that 1000th post for this thread. All special events should happen at home and this is your home for sure.


I know this is off thread but speaking of home there were many homes broken today that I've been praying for and will continue. After the school shooting today in Connecticut everything went into security review mode here at our school. God bless those people, especially the ones that lost those precious little children. OMG, how sad, my heart is breaking.

I know exactly how you feel - I hate to read the news..especially today. I just can not understand this - beyond any thing I can imagine. I can not imagine what these parents are going thru.

Sad day indeed.

Have you seen this model. I think it would be a 44in wing span. Not bad for the price. Retracts and all for $126 bucks. Cool video also. I don't know if any USA hobby suppliers carry it or not.

I kind of had a feeling it as a hoax - still not absolutely sure.

It would be my luck the wind would take it down and break something, being sooo light, then parts would take forever to get.

I think what would be a nice "toy" is a quad (or more) EDF copter.

No external props - much safer in the house. Now if they could make these so you do not need a 12S lipo.....

Also - it gets better...make the EDFs turn, kind of like the VTL planes, talk about maneuverable........

You could fly these to the ceiling, the EDF's would kind of suck right up to the ceiling, no more thrust and it would drop until the thrust was back.

We need to start a company...DaSkunkWorks :-)
