You have nice kids. So that's what we have them for. My wife and daughter got me the B-29, it was too big to put under the tree so they put it in my bathroom. Being that was the first place I went to after getting up I had know problem finding it.

I got a bandsaw. The trouble was sitting on the things that I could cut with it even though I didn't know about it.

Another JR 8103PCM, so I can get 10 more planes in the air! My kids gave me a nice aluminum dual transmitter case.

I hope those t-shirts had airplanes on them.
Building tools are great but JR radio's are good too! The B-29 is great, but the Krusty doll is hard to beat. Keep them coming guys, this is fun.Bandsaw, can't build without them!

I scored big, my wife got me a brushless motor for one of my IC prop conversion projects, my mom got me an Electro screamer so I can fly in the back yard. and a new heavy duty dremel

oh yea most important a spinal tap DVD and a pair of Chuck Taylor Converse high tops.... since they stopped making them.

not sure if that as good as an evil Krusty Doll though !

In my stack of gifts this year was a Hitec 555 receiver for my KC F-18 that is about to be off the building board and into the air. I also got a Frank Cavazos Boomerang combat wing to replace the one that my stupid apartment maintenance crew mistook for trash(I left it on the bed of my truck, ended up in the parking lot), and compacted with the trash. Much to my surprize was Rod Machado's private pilot handbook and workbook as well as a 3 hour ticket to a local flight school! Yippeeeeee! Oh yeah, and a cordless dremel, not the freewheeler junk, but the one with changable battery packs. (This thing rocks!)

Wow, Jim, I thought one 8103 was enough? Can't you just hook up to a computer to use the model safe and just upload what you are flying for the day? I know you have a computer Look at it this way, now you are going to need 9 more flight packs! (I wish that wasn't my problem at this point )

Baahhhhhhhhh I didnt get what I wanted,,,,,,, again!
I asked for the offshore SU-37 short kit and plans,,,,, didnt get it. I did get a check for $50 for use on EDF stuff, but Ill probably use it toward a brushless setup. All I really wanted for like the last 3 years is EDF stuff, nothing would be cooler than a new jet kit to build, I dropped all the hints, emailed web site links, and even hurried to get my current project off the bench so I could start on it right away,,,,,,,,,, NADA,,,, Dooohhh!!!
I did get cool stuff though, I got dirt bike riding gear, road bicycle riding gear, and a VERY cool Arai street bike helmet. I got a rotersie griller, TV with a DVD player in it. All in all a good haul, but man I really want EDF stuff, and its hard to drop the cash on yourself sometimes you know,,,, well it is for me at least .
Oh well, thats it!!!!!! I am calling NE sailplains and ordering that brushless set up today!!!!!! I think Ill hold off on the SU 37 untill after I get better with the F-18 on steroids and try to crank out my 2 contest jets. I still have to finish up my depron Minx 480 for winter flying too, no way I can get my bungee stakes into the frozen ground!!! .
