Shameless plug for Jax R/C and one of the members. I crashed my nitro 600 for the first time last weekend. Lost orientation, dumb thumbs, nose in without canopy. This caused the receiver battery to get tossed about 10 feet away from the bird. Throttle servo jammed into full speed, and I watched helplessly as my bird tore itself to pieces. As I watched the clutch burn up, and the clutch bell explode, thankfully, it ran out of fuel. Walking to my mangled mess, some buddies helped me search the ground for parts. As we assessed the damage back at the pits, Rob (JaxRotor) saw what was left of the clutch and clutch bell, and proceeded to break out his parts bag. He handed me new parts, and with a smile and a handshake, he said "Merry Christmas", and left the field for the evening. Without guys like that at your local club, it would still be in pieces in my garage. Thanks to Rob, the Rex is back in the air, with nothing more than blades and a tail boom (also donated). Just wanted to say thanks to Rob, and all the guys who help out the new kid.

+1 for Jax RC. They are one of the best groups of guys around. They even had the patience to help out my buddy Norman last weekend.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

Getting something "free" from Robert is like asking a "small favor" from the mafia. He WILL get you back!

Norman showed up? No way!

Andy's classic case of "the pot calling the kettle black." Maybe it's personal

Robert's one of the most generous guys I know.

Are ya flyn this weekend? If so, I'll see ya then.

Robert is a stand up guy. Always there to help. Guys like him show the best of our hobby; helping those that need it.

Our club is a lot better off from Robert's first year as President. His second year will probably make the club even better.

Thanks for all that you do Robert. We don't say it often enough.

This hobby is WAY too expensive!!
