Wow Brian, sorry to hear that! I certainly can feel your pain. I have been fighting back pain for over a year now and it really sucks!

I certainly hope you get to feeling better. As with the others, thoughts and prayers for you.

And thanks for dropping in and letting us know how you are doing. It takes a big man to reveal things like this and we can certainly understand your situation.

Get well soon!

Brian,
Hope the recovery is going well. Just wanted to say I really enjoyed building your Fighter 22 kit. It was my first foamy ever, and my first brushless setup. (I am primarily a free flight builder and RC DLG flyer).
My son and I saw the F22 at the indoor fest here in Columbus, and I decided to try one.
Fun build, great kit, great directions.
I went with a retro paint scheme, invasion stripes on the bottom as well.
Get well soon,

Brian,

It's brutal what has happened and I can only wish you the best in your recovery and hope that things are sorted out for you ASAP.

Yes, it's likely that there's going to be a bit of a fallout due to missing dates, orders and responses, but realistically the greater portion of the R/C community is going to be as supportive as it possibly can be and will certainly do what it can to get things rolling again for you when you've recovered.

You and you're ilk are a precious element within the domestic community.

Regards,
Paul.

Brian,

Good luck, if the steroid injections don't work (usually the first course of treatment) I would encourage you to push the doctor for surgical options, especially if pain is still radiating down the leg. When you have pain down the leg and numbness in your feet it could indicate that a nerve is being compressed by the herniated tissue. Fixing it is quite easy, typically done through a laminectomy or a disectomy, which typically show immediate pain relief and have short recovery times (a week in most cases).

I offer this advice because no one did it for me when I collapsed L5-S1, and spent nearly a year with a limp. Even after three steroid injections.

And I think Brian hit the nail on the head about the business "but realistically the greater portion of the R/C community is going to be as supportive as it possibly can be and will certainly do what it can to get things rolling again for you when you've recovered." Don't sweat it, get healthy!

Brian,
Welcome back to Wisconsin winters. Sorry to hear about the back, never a good thing to have happen. I can't imagine what it's like trying to dig out on your street. (I live about 5 miles west of him, The plows on his busy 4 lane road have got to suck) We've been hammered this year, Cold (-F), then it warms up, 35+, then back to the deep freeze. Then snow, we've had lots of it this year, large amounts, then 2-6", ect..... Typical wisconsin, wait a minute, then it changes.

Yes it was!

I also saw the pictures of my SpookE and PeregrinE in the January Flying Models.

OW! I think I just hurt my arm patting myself on the back!

Ordered a Bogie with the package this morning. Look like my kind
of plane. Got some Red and Yellow transparent lite covering for
it on hand. The structure in the wing cries out, "LOOK AT ME!"

Here is a picture of the Bogie 72 I finished this winter. Weather here is not conducive to a maiden yet, but I can't wait. I'm now working on a SpookE. It's a great airplane to build.

I'll bet that one is a good build and a great flyer also. Good luck with your build.

I have a quick question. I'm currently building the MM SpookE and the build part is complete. Now the part I dislike the most, covering. I'm using Coverite Microlite and I have one issue. Because this covering is like colorized Saran Wrap it is tough to work with, but I have used it in the past without this particular problem. Because the wood in the SpookE is sooooooo thin when you cover one side it wants to stick to the other side. Shrinking will not release the two half's where they are stuck together. I cover one half (horz.stab) and then shrink good and tight. Then when I cover the other side, it seems tight enough but when you shrink it there are a couple of places that are stuck together. One side to the other. Doesn't seem to be any answer to this I have recovered this surface twice. Any suggestions appreciated.....thank you.

moparherb,

When using Solite (same stuff) I always give it a light dusting of baby powder and rub it around evenly. That keeps it from sticking together and doesn't seem to affect adhesion at all. I've heard of wiping it with dryer sheets too but I haven't tried that one.
