    There is a very fine line between \"hobby\" and \"mental illness.\"

    Ehh, I'm worried. Losi.com isn't up either.....?

    EDIT; Well, they were acquired to investors. This may be good or bad. Damn, the OP had me scared!

    Yeah, I have been trying Horizon all day today and unable to link up. Not that I have any orders out there except for the new ParkZone Mosquito. No charges because no plane in stock. I will have to keep my eyes on my cc charges.
    Will add something clever and witty if I ever come up with something.

    I just got off the phone with Horizon... they've been having sporadic web site issues all day, mostly due to high traffic volume, NOT related to the recent buy out.

    Seems all the HH family sites are down. Has to be carrier and/or host issues rather than high traffic. I'm sure they are no stranger to high web traffic.
    Curious as to what the new plane selections will be. They are really thin now. Seems a lot of emphasis is on electrics and the quads and helis.

    1/4 scale Super Cub, 4.2 meter scale glider, 30cc Beaver, 30cc Spitfire, 50cc Corsair, and a 30cc SR-22 all come to mind lately.

    Hard to say they are concentrating on small stuff.....
