Putting the final touches on getting ready for FLI! New plane ready, new prop on 103", batteries at storage voltage...check!

Starting to get really excited, but have to work hard Mon-Tue to finish two projects before leaving on Wednesday.

Can't wait to see everyone there!

Field was awesome this morning!

Got a flight on my EPP Slick and maidened my new 51" Slick with an OS electric motor on it.

BTW, anyone seen the forecast? Looking pretty good!

Mostly spectacular, with a high probability of AWESOMENESS!

Good power. Nice smooth motor!

Need to try a different prop (got a Turnigy Electric wood on it now) and speed up the response on my esc.

I've got an Ice Lite 75 in it and I didn't reprogram anything, just ran default settings.

So, if everything goes as planned, I could be passing through Memphis around lunch time. Now I have it in my head to have some Memphis BBQ (too much food network I guess). I've read a lot of mixed reviews on places, from being "to die for" to the worst place on earth and people having their cars broke in to while they stopped in for a sandwich...

Does anyone have a recommendation or should I just continue on and hot-foot it up to the field?

I was born and raised in Memphis!

What do you want to know?

Although it appears to be close where you exchange from I-40 to I-55, you'll easily lose a couple of hours on an excursion into Mphs for lunch. It'll be 20-30 minutes from the I-55 interchange to "The Rendesvous" which is where most out-of-town folks want to go for "Mphs Q".

I personally like wet Q more than dry Q, which is what Rdv serves (dry rub).

Point me to some good BBQ. I don't mind getting off the beaten path a bit. I've been told to go to Beale St even... I'v even considered Neely's...

Thanks Fred!

Truthfully, you just almost can't go wrong with BBQ in Memphis.

With so many really great Q restaraunts there, if a new BBQ joint springs up im Mphs, it HAS to be good or it just won't survive!

Rdv is known worldwide for their ribs. They're kinda vinegerry and although they are really good, I just like tomatoey sauce. The restaurant is very different and historic, too. Cool place to see.

Although I haven't been there in several years, Interstate BBQ has been around since I was a kid. The building is very unassuming, but the food is fantastic!

If you like different stuff, try the BBQ spaghetti! Yeah, you heard it!

I personally love that stuff! I even make it at home from time to time!

Neely's is a relative newcomer on the scene and I haven't had the occasion to try it yet.
