I used to watch a vid of a kid racing down his driveway then hitting a ramp and flying over a barn but can't find it now.

Well what I think I here you saying in such an elegant manner is:

hell to the naw naw - bishop bullwinkle (0 min 15 sec)


obtw, I'm I doing something wrong? I put in the YouTube address and that is all that shows up.
Previously the video screen would show up, not just a link.

Caught what I thought was a break in the wind and rain. Took the little Volantex SC for a quick test flight after installing the lights last night and as soon as it got airborne rain started dumping and wind started blowing. Managed about three minutes before calling it quits and landing. Also sitting around getting more and more ticked that my two now discontinued UMX Wacos are floating around lost somewhere in the Fedex ground/USPS system likely being beaten to a pulp when they should have been on my doorstep Tues.

At 6:30 am I gave a friend of mine his first flight lesson at the bootleg field with the mini Apprentice. He's hooked. His life as he once knew it is over.
Then I went up to the club field and did 5 flights.
At 1:00 pm I'll attend the funeral of a friend who had been our current RC club president. What a great guy. He'll be missed. The day before he died of a sudden heart attack, he flew for a couple of hours at the club. He seemed absolutely fine. He was 82. Rest in peace, fine sir.

Condolences. I will attend a funeral this weekend for a friend I saw Sunday, fit and singing in the choir that was only 67 and fell over dead in his kitchen about 5:30 AM Tuesday.

IT comes like a thief in the night, ready or not, be ready.
Have your Batteries ready.

Jerry taught his grandson to fly. We've enjoyed watching his progress. Lately he has worked his way up to EDF jets. I wonder if he'll sneak a RC transmitter and some LIPOs into the coffin before they close it.

I found most recently that I've changed my policy on my eventual demise.

I used to say that I'd like to be "Lightning struck" and leave this plane of existence in an instant.

That policy leaves your loved ones with a terrible separation anxiety.

A proper lingering would be my option if it was within my purview so those that would like to give their goodbyes, could.

I wish God speed to the survivors who recently, unexpectedly experienced a terrible loss.

The bigger they are the harder they fall...and more parts break....especially when it's cold out.

Well I'm not posin' all my surface vehicle but here is a pic of the Work Trucks I bring out when my Grandson, Charlie, 3+ comes around. I gave him one of the Articulated Dump trucks for his own. The little white tracked thingie is a whole lot of fun and worth every penny - and it comes relatively inexpensive.

Never got outside to fly.

Interrogative:

Why are my YouTube links showing up just as a links "words" and not as a Video?

Am I doing what I used to do but maybe something has changed.
I see that SanDiego BeachBum's video shows up as a video.
I am feeling disenfranchised and discriminated against and want to know if I can sue somebody.

Stephen
I need reparationSS
