    I hope so, I'd sure love to see your work, and see you work it. Maybe Buttface will let me fart in his truck if he goes, haha! If not, I'll fart in my own truck. :smash:

    I think you were warned how man power scheduling worked with that group. Stay as long as you can hack it and fatten the bank account. The pay won't be as good after that one is done.

    HAHA, yes I was warned. I'm hoping we pick something else up contract wise. There are rumors. If not I'm content to come home and put feelers out. My wife and I are in a good place financially now, so the pressure is off to have to maintain this level of income. I'm super thankful for what I have and the opportunities that have been afforded to me. :thumbsup:

    I'ma try to make it to Nall this year for the first time.

    As for the 28X... I fly an 11X right now but I'm kind of down on expensive radios now. 28X would have to be under $1500 for me to even consider it and I know that ain't gonna happen. I'm more likely to jump on a cheap FrSky or something... I'm tired of jumping between pricey radios and nothing ever being "right". 11X is nice but it has a couple of things I'm not fond of.

    Blargh :ack: I have no desire to go back with them. I do appreciate what they gave me though :thumbsup:

    Don't know if you know, but I was with them when their stuff was a little smaller. Moved on as they were transitioning to the one they have now.

    That is awesome, Al. I remember the conversation we had, when you told me that you were not happy with your old job. I'm sure something better will come along.

    It might have been, I remember something surprising me about that. I ended up having to switch it though because whatever came with it died on me :ack:

    Thanks for the info. I didn't realize JR had started using a hopping protocol.

    No flight reports?

    What the heck do you do with 28 channels? And how would you manage/control them?

    Bling is fun but ..... 28 channels?

    I have one on order. We will get the first round as Team JR Pilots. I will post a full report on the radio. I also have an F14 on the way that can use most of the channels. With elevons, flaperons, leading edge slats, spoilers, air brakes, dual rudders on separate channels, brakes, nose gear steering, retracts, functioning canopy, lights and twin turbine throttles.

    It will use all the latest xbus systems.
