When I check this site for new posts, nuttin happens! Much like what one of the Three Stooges said when he tried to think. :-) To me that's a testament to the machines and company. So good that nuttin happens, except alot of fun.

Well said, although we should have something to talk about so lets see who can ad to this. I flew the gasser today no problems what so ever. Nothing broke, nothing wore out, so all I could do is fly all afternoon with nothing to complain about.

You got it ,,when you have a great product like Larry has ,,,you don't need a page to figure out problems as there are very few. It helps when you aren't constantly changing your bird too.On one of my other brand I need a field rep and a dictionary to figure out which parts I need.

In all fairness, consider the size of the customer base. There are like a million Furbies out there and lots of activity on the MA board. Same with the Rat-turds. No offense meant to any Fury or Raptor owners, it's just in fun.

When the rest of the world figures it out, they'll be here.

Well, I can complain a bit. I've been struggling with an air leak all week. I may have it nailed it down now. Rear engine seal wore out. We'll find out in about an hour.

Other than that, my darn Intrepid machines just keep ticking along.

I like it nice and quiet here. Although, it's nice to chat with you all.

The Weather stinks!! It has been raining forever! It is a good thing Bergen Gassers fly in the rain. Not as much flying as I would like, but 2 gallons since the first of the year. Had a strange quirk with my stock gasser, but a carb rebuild later and it is happy again. Most of the time has been spent getting things set up on my new 10X, a birthday present from my wife.

I am sad that I missed the 2 local float flys. I bet I have the only gasser in the area on floats! I change the landing gear in less than 5 min.

Keep them in the air!

Sorry, I have not done the picture thing on RR yet. If you bug RStacy, he may be able to get some up on his website.

They are the helimax floats with different spreaders. The important thing to remember is ABSOLUTY NO NEGAVIVE PITCH while on the water.

If you spin it up from a full stop, it will got about 1/2 to 1 1/2 turns on the water, depending on tail blades and gyro before you have tail control. I have yet to do an auto to the water. I am just scared. It should work great.

When in forward flight, you have to hold a little back elevator, but it really looks cool in the air. Yes, I still do my normal rolls, loops, stall turns and tumble weeds with no noticeable problems

I will fly it at the Performance Hobbies fun fly in August. With any luck, I will do a demo on the pond, then change the gear and do a high altitude HALO drop with an RC Meat Bomber (parachutist)

It is an easy setup. I spaced the landing gear down to clear the pull start. Mounted a sailplane tow release to a piece of aluminum, attached that to the landing gear, and ran it off a spair channel.

The first time we did it, the chute did not deploy. Charlie bounced in a corn field! It took us about 1/2 hour to find him. He survived! We were lucky enough to have a real chute packer at the funfly. He showed us the correct way, and the second time was a great success. The Gasser did 3D on the way down, and Charlie landed at the pilots feet.

Indiana is only about 12 hours driving time
