^^ Oh great , Panda Crocs !

Hi Johann,
Yes the Rhino course is going ok, I haven't started the latest unit yet.
Unfortunatly there has been very little or no wind the last two weekends so no flying. The temp is hovering around zero still during the day at the moment , but it promises to go milder later in the week. So when its up in double figures I can get on with that zally wing.
At the moment Skip( a flying buddy) and myself are building a pair of 'Lobbits' a small 1 meter wing span traditional build light weight slope soarer. Fingers crossed it will fly when all else is on the deck.
I am impressed with some of the films coming from these ' Go pro ' cameras they do look good.
Back to the Rhino course is there anything in particular that you are struggling with ?
To make it more interesting I drew up the Wasabi fuselage . It looked ok.
Hows the Alchemy coming on, or do you need another walk along the beach to look the the girls for inspiration ?

You guys are brutal. You've got to come up with a system.

When I come to PE, the only thing I'm bringing foamies!

Ja Dave!!
Where do we go from no 99??
Seems foam is in shortage here in Africa!!....at least the way we go through built-ups you'd think there was nothing else to build with!

So do you have a flight no for us yet??
I'll arrange for your collection!

Don't worry, Sean. They have a special PE roll of numbers: 0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2, ...

Because when you guys get two planes in the air, the next number is always 0!!!
