Ok, ok. I get it. I just took a ration of S!$T from my wife for buying this thing, thought I could be welcomed by my obsessed buddies to make me feel less guilty. AS SOON as I get it together I will post a pic of MY PLANE! Can't wait to feel that SPEED!

Hey moparmyway great alternative thread to post the insanity we peruse. How's the new build going, I started Aurora II and I will be testing some new resin that from the look's of the data sheet will be better than the west system stuff which I regularly use.Hope this thread comes alive with more daily posts instead of weekly I know there's got to be more speed and modification projects going than what the posting suggests.I'll post my video of the bungee accident and subsequent repair of the Aurora in a few days.The bungee caught the prop and gravity and inertia did the rest but as I said all has been repaired and she looks better than ever. I added new yellow trim on wing and stab tips to improve visibility and help maintain orientation when speeding along at a distance were colors like red and charcoal gray disappear along with your plane for that second that seems like forever,those profiles(head on or side views)can really get you when thing are moving fast.

My name is Jamey and I am a speed plane addict....My life went down the tubes and I have sold everything related to RC (except my K&B-48) but I would like a revvur number please?

I have forfeited my old # because I am a dork.

Sincerily,
Razor

Jamey, just do a double slashthru of the number you have. When you get back in the fold you can have your old one back.

Hang in there brother.

Biggerdano- Did you see the entire footage? There is an airplane contrail in the background in the video...What? You could not see it, OH that is because it is dwarfed by the HUGE contrail of the UFO.

My guess is Ted Turner got a new toy and pushed the wrong button.

Much better Smarks!

How can you stand not getting out there yet, it looks super hot.

FBD, get this man a number. I have a feeling this might be faster than anything you own at the moment.
