Oh -- one more thing. I guess I can see you (somehow?) fitting the 104" Slick in the Escape, along with some smaller planes -- but that's about it.

So.....if you need someone to "babysit" those pesky "mid-sized" planes (your 72" Extra or 70"/71" Slicks), just let me know.

Wow... I remember your first 3DHS plane...the little blue Velox.

Would you consider leasing out the 104 in time blocks(sort of mini time shares) for those that will never own one??

Gotta have a pilot to compete in IMAC, so it might as well be one like this!

Well I figured as long as I did not get it back to you Friday... and seeing as how now that I bought the 104 I'm going to have to wait yet again to get my own....

Of course I would have loved to get some shots of you flying out there with us <hint, hint>

Looks like you all had fun. We had fun out at EVA,chatted with Ace4, he may
end up with a 71 or 89. We tested to see if Ted's(my bro) 71 would fit in
his car,no problem.
Came home and had a 102 fever the rest of the day/night, fun stuff
Nothing like fever dreams, dreamt Kevin got a 104,
Oh wait he did
Ace may come out and rogue fly next Sat.
Half finished the Giant 42 Dad's using the fuse as a template for his rebuild.
The new carbon gear is way stronger the old ones.

If you guys are going to be there, I'll check it out on Saturday. I finally got a shipping notice from Castle, so I should be able to fly the heli this weekend. 7 weeks of no heli flying sucks.

Guessing I should bring my ezup and a table if I can fit them in the car?
