Been looking over a couple photo's from last year and I was just wondering who that is in the Red sweatshirt? Looks like there is a trader among you!!!
Someone else looks like they root for the winner as well....That sweatshirt seems to have the same name as the other attached picture.....


BUSTED!!!

I don't think you or brother Dago should be allowed to get one.

I've been rooting for the bear, even though it's the underdog in Reno, but you two just root for the winner.

And now you think you deserve the ARF? Sheesh....



MissA, and the Freestyle will be around. Maybe put the gear back in the PBXL....or say to heck with it and go to the lake.

Well my LHS got one in the other day. I REALLY want this thing but I'm going to hold off a little bit.

I'd really like to hear some reports on construction, quality, etc etc.

Mabye someone should start another Rare Bear build/flying thread that doesn't have so much BS in it now that the plane is finally available...?

If I keep buying stuff like this I'll NEVER have the money for that DA50 I need[:@]

I've been whittling my bear out of a balsa tree for 8 months now, almost finished. I just need to mount the Jett. Any of you folks out there get the arf yet, and if so send your pics. I'd send mine but my fingers are to sore from whittling with the carrot peeler I can't push the button on the camera. Oh well I can always fly it with my thumbs.

I picked my TT RB up last evening. ($300.00 w/o rt)

Impressed with the F/G pre-finished fuelsage and surface coverings.

I will be powering w/ a FX-1.60 w/ 16x8 3 Bld. [sm=punching.gif]

I did this power install into a GP-GBR2 and WHAT a performer !!

Only issue I found was that 1 main tire was missing from kit inventory.

Beautifull decal set.

Hope to fly by Labor day. Will advise.
