What are you looking for at Toledo?


Just curious - I'll be looking for deals on:

1) A few park/fun-fly types
2) A whole bunch of micro hardware (if available)
3) A brushless setup or two
4) Plenty of batteries
5) New Radio.

Does anyone know if most of the vendors take credit cards? I would hate to take cash for all this...

Hope to see you there!

I'm looking to get the following

Mega 22/20/2
Jeti 70-3P ESC for said Mega motor
2 GWS-EDF-50's (just to play around with)
Switchback 3D (Doug, please tell me you save one for me, I already ordered a motor for it from AeroMicro)
Astro 010
Speed 400 Race (for a friends Turbo Bee)
Stinger 400 (I'll put the 010 in it)

Any money left over will hopefully buy me a hotdog, because after all that shopping, I'm going to be hungry.

Steve,

All of the vendors that I experienced at Toledo take VISA.

In a general order of priority:

1) Mega 30/3 plus ESC.
2) Sundry building tools and supplies.
3) A couple of folding props and gearbox for my Soarwatt.
4) Free Ezone stickers
5) Bare Bones plans if anyone is selling them there.
6) Maybe some battery pack building tools and supplies.
7) Maybe a 10x2400 sail plane if anyone is offering a good deal.

Or dear, I should probably stop at the ATM again.

I wish I could sell my books back to the school bookstore already so I could have more money.

Hey, do a lot of places have "show specials". I'm really hoping they do. Please say they do.

A few suggestions that maybe ya didn't think about.

Indexed drill bits 1-80: There is a tool booth ( Eastern Tool and Supply) that has these for about $11. Not the best quality, but just fine for our use. More usefull than you can imagine:

Permagrit sanding tools:
Can get from the same place as the drill bits. I bought some 10 or so years ago, and they are still going strong.

MicroFasteners:
Way too much stuff to list. Stop by and try to get out without spending at least $20 I dare ya :-)

Epoxy brushes:
That tool booth also has them by the gross for about $7. Split a gross with a buddy, and you'll have enough for almost ever.

See Temp:
If you build from plans this is MUST HAVE.

Harry Higley:
A lot of MUST have tools and such. His book Mostly Mounting is very worthwhile. I hear he has a new one out that looks just as good.

I think that's it....for now.
