Hey all.

Time for me to derail my own thread again

But it is worth it.

My pal Joe is living the dream. Scroll down this page and see what a Dubai Prince's RC hanger looks like. Joe was invited to go over and Fly for the Prince. On the next page is a picture of this young man..... . What a way to make the RC community proud..... Wishing I was your spotter now Joe

Rock ON!!!!!

Dag,
You are not the only one who wishes they were one of Joe's spotters or callers. Wow, what a honor and what a trip. He is a great pilot, I am sure he will show the prince a few things.

Thanks for the link. I went there, unbelieveable.

That is absolutely crazy. Really impressive, I hope a video of his flight gets posted at some point.

I've always wanted to take a trip there to watch a Red Bull Air Race in person... but the World Championship for parachutes should be equally interesting...

I can't believe that A380! That sucker is huge! I'll bet it's 4 turbines, too.

One thing about it, there is a guy (the prince), that doesn't seem to have to worry about a budget for a model plane....

You only need a budget when you fly figure 9's. Right, Tony?

A real update.
Sorry to pictures lately, I know these threads really suck with out pictures.

I think I finally have all my wiring figured out (not all made up yet). I am at a point where I have to finish the outboard wings with the jets and how they attach, and where the ESC and batteries mount. I am in space overload as I am finishing out my EII and room is limited. Plus winter is here and its very hard to keep my garage warm. So over the next 2 weeks I am going to get my jet and the way they mount and wire up at the field done. One of my biggest hurdles is how I transport the 36 and how she sets up at the field.

Rock ON!!!!!
