Default Regular guy's Phenom thread

Well for those of you who are average builders who operate on the RC hobby on a budget less than the Queen of England, I submit to you my Phenom build thread!

I have an old run-down, beat up, poorly lit, leaky shed where I attempt to build my RC models. Please find below for your approval my first post and pic of my Oakdale Phenom.

My Dremel battery is dead and I cannot find the charger, but I began construction in earnest this afternoon.

The good news is the ARF is world class quality with easy to follow instructions-
The bad news is I had 4 margaritas (Cazadores is good but Centenario is better) and I had my DVD player going so I did not get much done-(See Dremel info. above)

I REALLY need my Dremel to be charged and ready to roll I think...

More to follow...

A couple more margaritas and you'll be ready to go

I wish someone would get one of these in the air so I can decide if I want one. My Jett .50 is getting bored of the Eindecker

Razor I know what you mean. I'm currently living in a 1 br apartment 350 miles from my workshop. I'm getting tired of working on my coffee table! This silly little electric should have been done in about 2 days, but its coming up on 3 weeks. RRRRR!!!!!!

Good Luck, and get that thing in the air!

Aw heck! No wonder that Dremel doesn't work...

Also, what on Earth are micro-balloons? OK I know what they are but are they REALLY necessary?

I am thinking about wrapping the entire airframe in bacon and deep frying it...maybe adding chocolate sauce afterwards with some swiss cheese. OK so I am still buzzed---

Tom- I used to have hot fudge sundae's with orange juice-

Don't worry about the micro balloons! In your condition you would never get them blown up anyway. Just use cookie crumbs.

Thanks goodness!

We need to plan a one day Revver's get together at Rabbit. I know Russ wants to do some video of the Phenom.

Anyone have a date in mind?

The weekend of March 9-10 I will be up north for my mother-in-law's 90th birthday. Hopefully, this Revver get together will be on a different weekend. This is a subliminal message designed to make everyone subconciously think that the weekend of March 9-10 is not a very good idea!

Razor, you really need to get your priorities straightened out.

I do not have a DVD player for my workshop.
Dremel #1 has CORD! No need for charging. (xmas gift 3 years ago)
Dremel #2 has a CORD and a flex shaft. (Xmas last year)
Dremel #2 came with accessory kit. see pic #2
OK the drill has a battery, spare battery, but the charger is hard to miss see 3rd pic.
Porter-Cable drill was door prize from a machine tool dealers open house.
Queen of England left in June 2000.....which means....
more time to go flying!
money spent on jewerly now buys Jett engines!
money spent on presents now buys Airplanes!

There is no such thing as come back to Crazy's post.

I see how I have gone awry...

"Queen of England"? THAT is funny... Folks think $360 is a lot for an engine but try a tennis bracelet from Tiffany's [X(]

I guess I am almost divorced---got to go to counseling first though or else it looks like I don't care.

I should try that. But I have trouble flying below me. I think we could find someone to juggle T-Rex's.

Razor: I should be saying "I use to ride a unicycle" at my age of 56. But today I can only say "I just did".[8D]

It was gorceous at Rabbit today. We could have stayed all day but none of us had had any breakfast so at 1:30 we had to adjourn to Jonny Ds. Gonna do it again tomorrow.
