$7 shipping on a $2 item really chaps my backside....especially since that little thing could not be more than $1.50 to ship. Atlanta Hobby's Electron club is worth the $35 a year.

I'd like to see anything fly (and land properly) at this point. It's been so long, I'll be like a virgin.

I have been victimized by another firewall separation! This time on my Slo-V. No real damage. I was testing my new home made wing mount. Got about 3 ft in the air when it broke loose.(motor mount, not the wing mount) Got it all taken care of and I will try to test it soon. Maybe.

Oops. I'll bet that you could catch some nice thermals right now. Jeeze it's warm outside.

Looks like you're in one of those phases when everything around you seems to be breaking. Be extra careful when you pee!

Well, I took the Slo-V out for a quick test flight. Everything worked out ok except I have to adjust the angle of attack on my new wing mount. It flew around quite nicely with the 3000 pack on it. All was OK until the landing when the motor mount broke off again. I think the screw holes are stripped.

Al,
What tool did you use to make the 90degree bends in your wire?
