EDIT
Didn't sell my Ta-152 at the Fernley meet. See ad here.

It was a fun event! Classic Car rally, Swap Meet and plenty of RC flying. It was calm right up until 12:15pm. Sort of like the wind God's rang a lunch bell and came out to play. Would have been no issue but it was 90 degrees to the runway. But plenty of fun flying before that!!

I'll sell my twin 4s packs (8s system) for extra to fly right away if you bring your receiver and know how to program your radio (I can not program radios I am not familiar with, this plane needs custom servo setup like all big planes will). See ad here.
Eddie, We're anxious to see you out at the Tiger Field event this weekend! This is a beautiful airplane at a bargain price! Just want to make sure the word gets out that we will have the big hanger open for the swap meet/auction participant's and plan to be flying both Sat. & Sun.. This should be a great opportunity to just get out and enjoy some "hanger flying and great deals" or bring out your favorite breezy day plane and have some fun and win a nice trophy.
