Should we, do we have time to
Do it again?
Time is short
The reward is high
Tis The Season.


After some talk looks like we can do this again. With some changes this year. To be clear, hey you folks can help any way you want, its all appreciated. This year we do have some specific requests.

First up on the list is a GGT OS15 gas motor available at tower in the $350 ball park. This is a specific request for a specific Hero who earned several purple hearts and Stars of Both colors. A deserving sort without question.
I am kicking in $75 as of now. Batter up. We can work out how to make it happen, that will be easy enough.

The Program can use starter quads RTF Beginner Aircraft and beginner Helis Think Quads foamy planes, fixed pitch on up Heli. I would think good used 2.4 radios could also be put to use. So All you need to do is go buy one and drop ship it, address listed above. Pretty much any Blade Product!

Guys in years past we sent in all manner of stuff thinking it could all be put in service. It was a good idea that worked but over the years stuff piles up, its hard to sell for parts and they are dealing with limited space. This is at a Hospital. This year we need to send in complete items. RTF stuff or stuff that is close. Honestly I think the best thing here is good old cash. That can get tricky and risky. He does have an account at Rons but few have used it for what ever reason. I am willing to use my PP account for donations for either the motor or just cash donations. We need to find a way for that to be transparent and accountable.

Im kicking in $75 to the motor as of now.

Tis the Season Folks.

Do they still want stuff? I had been drop shipping ARF Multiplex Easy Star clones which seemed to suit their need better. They seemed overwhelmed with people to serve and this was a faster way to get them flying. Maybe traditional helis are a little too much for them now due to the time constraints. But, please ask. They kind of fell off my charity list and you helped raise awareness.

Wow, that's how much I don't care about quads, wasn't even thinking that way but they'd be perfect! Frank if you talk to those guys, see if you can get an idea on what sort of quads they're working with. I like the gift card idea but I still prefer to gift them something physical.

Wounded Warriors - Thank You For Everything.
Thank you so much for considering the guys.

We are still at it... every Tuesday afternoon and whenever we can get together otherwise. The helicopters are a big investment in time, so the multi-rotors are working out a bit better. Please don't hate on us, it is a step in getting into the helicopters.

Complete Projects.
Realize that if you are going to donate something, it will just sit unless it is a complete project. It is hard to get funds to just buy the odds and ends that we need.

If you can... donate to Ron Lund where we have an account setup. If you donate to the American Red Cross, make sure that you mention that it is a directed donation to the wounded warrior helicopter program.

Thank you everyone who is considering this a worthwhile activity. You would not believe how many it has helped. Let me say, if it were not for the wonderful work of Henry Gardner, this project would not exist.. RIP Henry - we miss you.

Folks just a quick accounting here. I just bought the motor from tower. It was $399 even. It will be shipped as a gift to the Hero that earned it, with the following message Thank you for your service from your friends, the members of RunRyder.

Including every one SO FAR (Hint Hint) $400 was pledged and donated. The account is even and we have a deserving service member getting what he needs to fly.
Folks who made that happen- THANK YOU!

Now its the next good guys turn to step up here! I promise its well worth whatever you can give.
Frank

Hats off to this group of guys here at RunRyder... incredible. The guy getting this is one of the most generous people you will ever meet. Lot of tough luck lately...

Even though the fighting has slowed, there are still training accidents that keep our DOD hospitals active. Such young men in the prime of their lives, proves how great this country is.
