    Thats OK. Now go practice 4 point rolls with your Vapor that has your new brushless, coreless, jitterless JR servos......

    Crap! I got 100%. It was easy. Being retired means that all I have left is nostalgia.

    Rocky here

    Perfect. Then I'll park next to your pool side "love grotto" and watch the hot babes frolicking in your mega pool. I'm too damned old to do much of anything else.

    Rocky here

    I may do that. I am planning to fly at the Camarillo IMAC contest on July 20 - 21. I could be at your place late Sunday and then we could enjoy a gourmet meal at Rocky's on Monday. Maybe I park at your place for a few days and we fly at the Victorville club? You have room for a 60 ft rig?

    Rocky here

    Hang in there. If it was easy everyone would do it. Determination and persistence are your strong points.... while brains and beauty are much farther down the list. As a matter of fact I'm still looking.

    Rocky here

    I have your location mapped out. The wife and I may be able to swing by this fall. We'll stay at the place across the street and tell them that we are part of the "Occupy" movement.

    Rocky here

    Rocky, congrats on the new avocation. After watching your efforts during the last few years at Rabbit your passion for great cooking has been pretty evident. Best of luck on the new venture and I will be there if there is a nice parking spot that can handle a motor home/trailer combo. If...

    May 6 Oroville Mini-Huck

    I'm in. Too good to pass up and have had a lot of fun during the last two events.

    What kind of Vehicle do you drive?

    For you that is only a partial load. Usually you carry a LOT of planes in the Caddy. I call it a Clown Car. Just like being at the circus where there is a tiny little car with 87 clowns eventually crawling out of the little beast. Greg, looks like Oroville is on for this year. You going?

    There are those of us in the late 60s and 70s that still love to hammer on a plane. I still "try" to fly like a teenager and enjoy every aspect of the hobby. 3D is a great way to try and keep my skill levels high enough to enjoy the adrenaline rush without jeopardizing safety or the use of...

    JR 8711 on h.v.

    Used them with lipos and A123s. No issues. I ran some rough calc's about a year ago and estimated that there is a 10% impovement in torque over 6.6 volts.

    Power needs for GS planes

    Prolly need to double check and verify the connector voltage drop data. There was a thread a few years ago that stated that the drop was .1 volt per connector. Maybe call the Horizon/Futaba Svc Dept and ask one of the tech's for a specific value based on their internal test data. The 1 volt...

    Hinge Gap Sealing

    Try the 3M Multitasking tape. I usually find it at Staples in a 2 pack. A number of us have been using it in our 35 & 40% planes for a number of years. Easy to install once you know how. Measure the length between the 2 hinges. Cut the clear tape a bit shorter. Have the wing/stab belly up...

    TFC Reunion FunFly

    Never been able to walk a straight path. Always careened from pillar to post. This detour is tied to my ADD. What was the subject????

    My Super Extra is all primed and read to go but..... the Bakersfield IMAC is that weekend. The DA 170 with the 3W 3D prop throws it around like a rag doll. I have a custom Carden Pro being built for this season and plan to give Benson a run for his money. As a result this season will be...

    Cool Tool!

    Agreed. But with my thumbs + or - roughly 10 degrees is all I need to worry about. Actually I have a very high tech digital rig for very accurately measuring degrees of throw down to .1 degrees. After using it and testing it against the CRC scales it came out a toss up. Real world is...

    Cool Tool!

    No question about it. Tony is a tool. Looks like a very good option. I have used the CRC meter for a number of years and it has worked out nicely. Bought two so that I can dial in both elevators at the same time. CRC Throw Meters

    Yep, about the only thing I could hurt these days is myself.

    That type of "Boy Toy" never makes it in a good combat unit. They can't cut the mustard but look "purdy" on a poster or looking at themselves in a mirror. The majority of the guys I worked with were 5' 4->7", put together like a piece of stringy shoe leather, tough as nails and pretty damn...
