Will be RET, for simplicity...and I have to make a machine gun for the rear cockpit ... oughta' be a floater ...

Looks very nice... Can't wait to see it fly too.

Hopefully I can get away sometime this week and we can do some mid-week test flights!

Nice Sharpie work. Yep, the 48" ws looks good. With some lights, it
could be a fun night flier. The winds are usually calmer then.
"OF Syndrome". I can relate to that. I like some coolant nearby when
I fly. And a chair to hold my shaky knees. Pass the transmitter
around, please.

I like the scheme. Sort of like if Jerry Garcia flew for the RAF.

Since the indoor computer isn't working, and I'm not sure you're receiving email on the 'outside' computer yet... Hopefully you'll at least see this.

Call me tomorrow (Wed.) morning after 7:30am on my cell... Oh, and what size was that hard drive you had in the 'inside' computer? I've got a 10gb drive sitting here on my desk waiting for a computer.
