Well guys my little quad died today. The main board went bad. I call horizon tonight around 5:30 and they are sending me a new board.
What's curious is they knew my name an address even though I wow using my wife's phone.
I'm so glad I didn't have to send it in. Not only would it take longer but I would of had to pay postage one way.

Snowy shut the door, it's cold down here. I know your mad about me an horizon hobbies, but please shut that door. No more cold.
I still haven't got my room cleaned yet an the green machine is still awaiting the table.
It's all Waldo's fault. He needs to get busy an that way I will get inspired.

Waldo... you plan smells just like ours... We have nothing planned, I smoked a 10 lb pork shoulder last night, going to shred that bad boy, have a nice dinner and a few coronas and chill. Some of the best plans are the ones that need little planning.

DOG........we used up the rest of the ham and made a batch of Easter sausage packed in Summer sausage casings........(don't ask). We had a white-sauce based ham and potato dish that is bound to clog the ol veins and arterioles.....but it sure tasted fine. Broke out the cheap champagne and made a few Black Russian chasers.......I've got a low-level buzz going on.....and there's still vodka in the bottle! I hope you all have a Happy New Year......!!!!

Happy New Year everyone.

I started to write a post earlier and then I lost focus.

I am, perhaps, a bit more cold sensitive as I get older - maybe. I did fly a couple of days ago in the 40s. Seems colder since I got my haircut.

I have been out in the shop working on planes the last couple of days.

I cracked the CF gear on my 50cc Extra last time. I did not see it until I took the gear off. I lost a wheel and had to do a one wheel landing. This happened once before and I thought I had everything tight but it has been a while. I took the axles off and had to drill out the grub screw on the other wheel collar to get it off.

I decided to make it bulletproof. I prepared new wheel collars then drilled holes through them and the axle. I put clip pins in for now. I will probably put lacing wire in later. It will have to be Houdini to come off.

I have new gear on order. I have other things to do on it but it is easier to work on with the gear on it.

I finished a Tundra today. Just need to balance it. I put a gyro receiver in it and it has a reversing ESC so I had to have 8 channels. The receiver only had 7 so I used a three slot S.Bus decoder. The elevator and rudder needed extensions anyway so I put them on the decoder and the control for the ESC direction in the other slot. The reversing ESC lets you back up when on floats. It came with flying wires for the tail but they put thin plastic mounts on the ends of a CF strip. The plastic ends broke when I folded them for the mounting. I will have to make something else.

I sold my Easy Star II to a friend so I think I will work on my Cularis tomorrow. I want to redo the throws on it, put in a telemetry receiver, add GPS, Barometer, and Extra battery sensors to it. This will give me vario functions, altitude, speed, distance flown, distance to home, and rate of ascent and descent. It is more a chance to play with technology than anything else.

After that, I want to get that senior telemaster completed so I can get it out of the shop. It takes up more room than my 50cc Extra.

I think I need to finish a plane a month next year. I really want to assemble the Rascal 110. I have a lot in boxes. I need to maiden the ones that are finished - an Auto-G2 and a SpeedFreak Outlaw.

I was hoping for snow but it didn't happen.We didn't have any last year either.

I do plan to fly something tomorrow, even if it just around the yard.

What the schnitzel is going on here.... You really didn't think saying "don't ask" would be effective?

Wayne.......if you don't get around to building that Rascal 110........I'd consider purchasing from you!!!!!! I just never got around to buying/building one of those....it might even get me back into flying!! I'll keep holding my breath.

DOG.......to make a long story short.......a woman gave me her recipe for Easter sausage last year.......and I never delivered her a promised sample.......I felt so bad that I made a batch.....and since casings aren't available here, this time of year, ........I had to make do........long story short.........I fulfilled my promise.........and no, I didn't even get tipsy last night........just a little "glow".

Happy New Year Y'all!

Kerwin, did you forget my phone number?
