Thread OP

Been a busy few months!

I really need to blog more often.

When last we met last summer, I told you of a couple of projects. Status: Unchanged. I've been busy hobby-wise helping out around here with reviews of some really fine hobby products. That little Cessna is trimmed out and flying right as well.

I had to put the brakes on my flying for awhile due to cataracts which snuck up on me. At age 50, yet. Those may have been what cost me my wonderful World Models P-40 Warhawk. I mentioned that a few posts back. Anyway, the eyeballs are nicely rebuilt and my distance vision is darn near bionic. The implants don't focus like natural lenses, so I have to use dollar store "cheater" reading glasses up close. Small price to pay, believe me. I must have put a good thirty flights on the HK450TT Pro I reviewed but couldn't fly because of the cataracts. Had its first crash a couple of weeks ago.

It's going back together with a combination of Align and Hobby King parts, but certain key parts from HK remain on backorder.

Thanks to a rather well-heeled friend, I and several others in the group we got together to descend upon the AMA walked out with shiny new quadcopters! What a fascinating branch of the hobby! You haven't seen anything until you see an autonomous quad fly itself via GPS. My new quad isn't one of those, but I fear seeing that GPS and R/C machine may have sparked a real interest.

Talk to you sooner than later!
