Congrats on the new addition to your family. I may have to make a trip to Gatortown to see this bad boy in person. That canopy is making my heart race. When will you have it up and flying?

I talked to the wife and she actually thought it would be stupid for me to quit all together. I have to just cool it on the forums for a while. I figured while she was gone though.....why not

Wow, hope you get a short video of the maiden flight.
By the way, why does your wife want you to stay off RR ?

Just stay off I75 when it's foggy/smoky. That was just a few miles from you.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Hi
I have bought helis while my wife has been away...... Managed to hide them behind other things and in store rooms for some time, so that the 'I've had it for a long time' is not a complete lie!!!!

How are you going to hide that huge thing???

Looks good.

Regards
Paul

How much are the TP 7s 5000 65c packs? I would have to sell my car to buy just 1 set of those packs in the UK! lol.

60% of the time, it works every time!
