Its hard to be a leader,more so when got to film your self with a helmet, could you mount that thing on straw hat,or on shoulder like a Perot. Put a few feathers on it,no one would think wrong, thats just WF and his bird. :rofl: :rofl:

just got back from flying it, got a pretty good video- but can't download it on my chromebook! trying to charge my old computer now. kristi in st pete training for new job, won't be back till thursday or i'd use her computer.

flew great. i'm a little rusty, haven't flown since i bought this house! need a little rudder expo and maybe some throttle curve. other than that, flew awesome!

will post video as soon as possible.

buy a mas one from tower! hooks can post a pic of his. pretty simple to make but hard to explain. a pic is all you need.

That stripper looks neat, them strippers look rough,have to be real hard up. Flew mojo more,better with low wind but,cg way back,like 6in back of spar. Moved ebc and batt,used wire ties as far up as could,much better but not enought. You can see my finger under plane at bal polnt,guess need add more iron to front. Flew 202,bad ass as always,even with 1000ma pack. Boat is 2012,37 hours,been sitting 10 years,get to go through whole fuel system.

all i see is goats and boats... gave gus a woody, but i think a freudian slip- if no pic of cg, there is no cg issue. it's all in your mind, unlearn what you have learned and deal with the next level! read jonathan livingston seagull if you don't get my reference.

having said that, you bring that boat down here, we go fishing. drink homebrew. crash planes in canal- foam floats- we post drunk pics, even constrictor will be envious! :P
