Absolutely great, thanks for asking

last night looked at my glow starter and pump and it crossed my mind to take a break from electrics and start up and fly some glow planes.

last two months were record breaking months for no rain in 100 years

last weekend it made up for it and rained all day long.

and as always Snowman you are absolutely fantastic and a gentleman and a scholar

Wayne, you might be right about using GG in that area. I'll use wood and epoxy.

David, tonight I plan to test those receivers you so generously sent me. I need to pick one for my TT40 so I can put this heauxdown to bed....again.

David22........that's exactly what I've been thinking........putting the electrics away for the winter and pulling out the T_ _ _t, Funtana, Dirty Birdie, and Stik 60....all on skis of course. I have to start warming up so that I can show y'all what rock-steady hovering looks like!

And the Yankees fans remain mute.......

Called the fella at bphobbies about bearing and such, what a great guy. He has all the parts and really knows these RCGF motors. He told me what needs heat to remove an what typically happens on these. He says the little bit of play I have can run like this for a long time without issue, but I am not going to take chances.

Wait! The T__T heauxdown isn't over yet, is it? This weekend looks like the first chance in two weeks for me to fly, so I formally request an extension. Besides, I haven't seen a single video of anyone hovering a T__T in the last month...have I missed something, or are you guys just blowing smoke?

I have had this motor for over 1.5 years and it was bought from copy king so my dealing with him will be cash and carry. I will be replacing everything bearing wise if I open the case.

Mike, the ho-down hasn't even begun! Of course you might as well give up before you start....I've got this thing in the bag!

If that's the case, just run the damn thing! How bad is the noise?

Thinking about ordering some power hd servos from HK, anything I need to worry about with them? I've never bought from them before. The servos look different but I know power hd has changed their look a little. I need them for the T---T so I can try to remember how to fly one! Then maybe I can get in on the heauxdown and get my arse handed to me!

Speaking of that, where is Waldo? I thought he'd have a vid from Saturday?
