I just realized these empty cases I see for sale on eBay are for the circuit board of the older style module. So the older style is useable even more so now.

Over the weekend, I received a piece of great news. Our very first successful solo flyer from Walter Reed has moved on to college in Richmond, VA. He will be learning to build and fly UAS drone aircraft!

Not to toot our horn too loudly, but this is a real win for us. We are in the process of filing for grant money in hopes of developing a reliable launch pad for these guys and girls to pursue like endeavors in the private sector.

A lot of you helped make this happen so toot your horn as well!!

After Incident Report...Thought I would share.
NASA Greenbelt Flying Club,

Thank you for your airplane trainer donation.

Sgt. Lemon and I were out having a good time on Sunday morning when a juniper(jumper) tree just straight out jumped up in front of us on the western landing approach to the FSA field.

Together with the unusual winds that blew at gail force for several moments before impact, we also noticed a sever radio interference problem immediately prior to the incident.

The plane also seemed to experience a unusual massive structural failure the moment it impacted the tree. It might have been defective.

It could well be that it was a glue failure that caused the outboard portion of the wing to be ripped off as it flew through the tree.

With the usual NTSB after-action report, the instructor and student were absolved of any and all responsibility in causing this accident.

A replacement foam plane has been ordered http://www.nitroplanes.com/skytrainer400-red-arf.html

You should be aware that the trainer did not suffer and may fly again when a suitable wing is located.

We were having a good time and the wing perished in gallant service to the country and will be laid to rest in a covered landfill. Please thank the Goddard guys, sorry it did not last longer, but a story was made and we had a blast.

Suitable Wing
The trainer was a tower trainer 60 sized... so an alpha 60 wing or something of that sort. Just a flat bottom wing with some dihedral.

I don't think that I am going to accept any more glow fuel trainers. The guys cannot keep fuel in their quarters.

As to volunteers, it is a real PITA to get set up with the Red Cross, and get the security clearance and the health screen. If you are x military it might be easier... it is worth it.

We need to talk... I will send PM.

Wounded Warrior Helicopter Project Continues
With the passing of Henry, his vision has not expired. We continue
to promote the hobby of RC helicopters at Walter Reed and invite you
to share in his design to help these guys get back on their feet and
enjoy a hobby that Henry found fascinating.

Wow that was random and out of left field.

So sorry to hear about this! Please don't let his vision die. It was quite obvious that he had a passion for the hobby and for helping and this is one of the best helping movements I've ever seen.

Henry did not want everyone to know, or pity him for his suffering. ALS is a really terrible disease. He was really a stitch to be around... very intelligent and philosophical. He knew the end was near, and so did I. I just did not know how soon.

He is in a far better place and his pain has ended. He has a lovely family and enjoyed his time with everyone here.

I have forwarded a link of this page to his family
Thank you for the kind words. They are appreciated.

Yes it is a worthy endeavor to help others. It was especially nice that even during Henry's illness, he was helping others. He is an inspiration to me about how to live when the odds are stacked against you.

I met Henry a few months ago through this thread. I learned of the great work he was doing at the hospital and was very happy to send him a Hirobo Sceadu Evo 50 and some additional parts I had that I thought the folks at the hospital could use. I went through all my hobby stuff. Glow plugs, brand new fuel pump, etc., if I thought they could use it I sent it. The girlfriend (GF) helped me pack everything up and we took it to the post office together. We were both excited to help our service men and women and support Henry's program. Is there anything more rewarding than sharing something you love with those Henry was helping? The package took a while to get there and Henry and I exchanged a few emails on the status of the delivery. Everyday the GF was asking if I heard from Henry today. The package finally arrived and Henry sent me a PM to let me know he received it.

I didn't know this at the time, but I recently learned (from his profile) Henry was also a ham which is one of my other hobbies.

RIP Henry. Thanks for all the hard work you did at Bethesda Naval Hospital and Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

My condolences to Henry's family.
