When I see/hear ESC, I think of the old rubber band driven escapement.

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

Ambroid

When you love the smell of Ambroid in the morning.

When you know to use a 'chicken stick'.

When your 'new' heli's tail rotor gearbox needed to be filled with oil.
