I already sent my package to Ron, but are we needing an OEM Nicd or Nimh battery for the 9C or do we want a lipo? If so, I have a Tx Lipo for the 9C I can send down to Ron.

Also; I do have a DX7 to donate and I could also bind a NanoCPx to it just in case it's not worthy to fly the bigger birds.

Send it all along! Things are ROCKIN today folks!
Im working on the details at the moment but we just received a very healthy cash donation. Honestly I dont want to publish the amount right away for fear of stifling the good stuff we can see happening. All donations and facts will be public knowledge.
Ill say this as a fact, we have reached our goal and will be donating a 600/50 nitro Heli and as you all can see, a large pile of useful stuff to boot!
Lets keep it rolling!

Hello guys, first of all thank you for your Christmas spirit and the reality of knowing this gift is not for everyone.

I do have a wounded vet in mind.. I have passed his name on to FBoss. When it is time and if the vet does not mind me telling his story (he won't know why), I will tell you about him... he is fully qualified to fly a 600 class ship but he would probably never be able to afford one.

In the mean time, your donations are always welcome at Walter Reed (Bethesda Naval was renamed Walter Reed). You need to check with me first. Sometimes I trade what I don't need for what I do need. I can always use simulators, tools, batteries, chargers and good/excellent shape micro helicopters.

Walter Reed National Military Medical Center
American Red Cross - Wounded Warrior Helicopter Program
8901 Wisconsin Ave
Building: 8 Floor: 2 Room: 2189
Bethesda, MD 20889

I try to start a vet off with a micro coaxial heli (I love "Radds School of Rotory Flight" principles) and a simulator. I then move them into micro fixed pitch heli and monitor their development on the simulator. Finally a collective pitch build and flight. By building, they know how to repair it properly. I teach them the basics of the swash plate leveling, and adjusting things mechanically first, then with the radio. By the time we are done building the heli, their skills allow some hovering. My club allows the vets to fly free w/AMA card. So they have all the basic requirements for completion and flight of their helicopter.
.
The guys at the club just sweep them up and make them feel at home. The vets are out with civilians and feel the love and caring that they need for recovery. For every ounce I put into this program, I am rewarded ten fold.

Why dont you do something like this. http://www.rcheliaddict.co.uk/main-...le-charity.html

Being in the states I bet you could raise a lot of money and maybe donate to a few charities??

I have been doing this one for 3 years now and it gets bigger and better every year.

Sorry guys the more mundane parts of life have been keeping me very busy. Update here
We have a large donation to consider.
Xcellgasman101 kindly donated $500 in cash.
The scope of this little project has clearly been expanded.
With that Id also like to say that Simages has also been caught up in the spirit and donated a boat load of very usable stuff, shipped directly to WW program. Thanks guys, both expressed the fact they dont care much for horn tootin but I think a word is in order. Thats not to overshadow what many of us have accomplished.
Whats that?
We have it all for a 50 nitro, less cyclic servos and I think I have those in a drawer and starting stuff, which we can buy.
Along with that we have a pretty big assortment of equipment which will have a good home.

We have just about enough cash to fund a 500 electric. I say a 500, which is a change, because they already use them and we are much closer to the funds needed. In short a better fit.I hear a buddy may have a line on good price, we should hear about that very soon. We have a NIP motor, esc, and choice of 2 fbl units. I few more dollars and we'll be able to swing a NIP 500 to boot!

At this point, I want to throw the voting open to contributors. I vote to send the lot to Wounded Warriors. Its a great program, it helps vets, its legit, the list can go on. Heli Splatter can use the items for the program as he thinks best.

I say lets keep the voting open till Sunday midnight.
Talk amongst yourselves......

RIP ROMAN
