    Should've kept that Flag Scheme Foamy!!!!!!!

    Well, my Yellow Compy 3M Extra is on its way to the Tucson Shootout to its new owner: Yuri Higuchi...he'll pull all the dents and probably repaint the whole thing...after sanding everthing with 1000 grit......

    I tossed in the spare set of 3M flag scheme wings for him. Never know what he'll do with it. I do enjoy his meticulous craftsmanship on his planes.

    I had seller's remorse after I agreed to sell it to Yuri, I was thinking that I could slap my old, old "SALA" mod DA150 on it and try to do those aerial restarts!!!!!

    Next up: A Futaba Scheme SuperXtra!!!! with lots of 3W stickers on it. But it'll probably get JR and ZDZ 180....

    Hope to come up and fly with you guys sometime. Or you guys come down to Prado....

    Hey Mike, have you tried putting a piece of tape over the microphone hole on the camera? That will help get the sound better.

    Ah, my old bird. Seeing this REALLY makes me miss the hot temps ha ha. I'll just have to stand another 6 weeks before spending 3 weeks in Phuket, Thailand, diving, kayakking, snorkeling, eating and drinking good and having a lot of fun. Then back to endure 6 more months here, then 1-2 months vacation driving around Europe and then moving to Phuket, Thailand and start working in a diving business or hotel business he he.

    Hey Mith. Looking at those latest 2 vids, I can see that you are heading to the same problem I had. Once I got them going on them, my boys never let me fly my planes and the little @%^$s usually flew them better than I did. Kinda makes a parent proud doesn't it (some of the best times of my life - at the field with the boys).
