surfer rosa has a "virgin moth
Don't worry, I'll deflower her soon enough Half the fun is tinkering with it, right? Seriously, I really enjoyed building it and I'm not at all intimidated at fixing a few blunders, as long as I learn something from it.

CrashinJ - thanks alot for that link! That is exactly what I was looking for. Very timely too.

Basketcase - are those all dead soldiers? How much time can I expect from my stock motor w/sink and etec 700?

Going by Crash's weblink, tomorrow is right out for flying here, but Saturday looks really good Are 3 to 5 mph winds a go for a newbie's second flight?

I think each LED consumes about 30milli amps.

The board maybe the same. I got 9 LED's on mine and it flies fine.

The lights really do transform it into another machine. Very cool.

Yeah, I just saw the video on the curtek site - strobed lights, no less. Very cool. So for night flight I suppose you have to be very familiar with your flying area and have at least your landing strip illuminated (visible)? Sounds like a real blast!

Ive been flying it at night for a while without the curteks..but they certainly do help with orientation. Mostly just for looks though

Nighttime during the winter in texas is the only time its calm enough to fly the TM!
