3) Hand launch my own models.

4) Learn what that channel called "Throttle" is for !

My Resolutions

1) Tired of flying alone, look for a group or club.
2) Make a pilgrimage to a Fly-in this year.
3) Actually find a GOOD place to fly, instead of wasting my time and busting up models.
4) Stop making resolutions; as I can never keep them
5) Get married. (It's the only way to get another Giant Scale lol I hate blackmail)
