International Hobby Expo


Just got back from the I-Hobby Expo in Chicago. Traveling with Hippo and Vyceroy, much less staying in the same hotel room was an adventure in hilarity and also the stuff that airplane dreams are made of. Those two guys have probably forgotten more about making airplaines than I'll ever know. It did'nt hurt that we had DVD's of the move "Crank" and Blazing Saddles, Army of Darkness and plenty of Downloads of the Venture Brothers which I was introduced to for the first time.... And this is the stuff that went on when we were'nt neck deep in planes, trains, cars, boats, batteries, motors, etc..
Met a lot of great people.
Joe Ford at Castle Creations and I had a smoke break together. I was great to meet him. The guys at Plantraco, AMA representative, BP Hobbies, Electric Jet Factory, and many more. Following are some pictures..

It was good


Joe, It was great to meet you as well. Get some rest and ignore the PM I sent you just a few minutes ago...LOL..
Mr. Flash, I got all caught up in it and bought a Carbon Butterfly from Plantraco ...the whole thing with plane, battery tx and rx with aluminum custom padded carrying case was $300.00 usd at the show. It is so much fun to fly, but going to hit the visa card hard when I get that one. LOL..
Tim.. Vyceroy already answered your question, but we were both oggling that one. It did not have an edf unit in it, but it was really good looking.
