This year, I will take Friday off and get there. What do you recommend for an easy 1m plane? Maybe by some miracle, I would have it ready by October It would be a good next step for my son after WhipIt.

Go Mini, if you want an excellent plane at a good price. It flies like a 1.5, launches like a 1.5, but is smaller. They should be off the waiting list in the next week or two, and Thomas shipping is crazy fast.

Jesper, if you are interested by chance in a slightly used Falke you can get yourself a ready to fly plane.

Nope. If you sell it I get to take your title of world champion Falke pilot, since this indicates you are too scared of my purple demon to defend your title at San Felasco next year.

T-shirts


Just noticed Jesper is suggesting non-white shirts for this year. I am thinking light blue, but am open to suggestions.

Especially for me.....I can't do much of anything without making a mess.

I'm not as bad as they say.
Apparently Scribner doesn't need a shirt.
