Merry Christmas Bob and the rest of you guys!!

CP- Sorry for the delay. My engines have stage fright I think.. Ive been having trouble getting them to run steady but I think Ive figured out the issue. Ive built a small SPAD to break them in properly before putting them back in the Blackbird. The holidays have kept me busy too... I plan on first flight sometime in late Jan if the weather is decent. Im itching to clean up the drawings and start working on a larger 40 sixe version...

God bless to all my revver brothers!

Back at ya mate, and to everyone here. On a temporary (I hope) respite from brandy and all other forms of ethyl happiness, and I don't like egg nog plain, so what do I do? Guess I'll have a nice cup of tea by the fire and think warm thoughts while I toast my real and virtual fly-crazy brethren.

Time to make that New Year's hobby resolution list! That list of course is more interesting, more useful, and far mroe involved than the usual token list of vices and habits we enjoy that one pledges to rid ourselves of and never do because what's the point? Although I sometimes doubt it is any more of a realistic list.. finish those 7 kits, win the lottery and buy a couple of turbines and a sod field with a lake, clean the workshop (again, but for good this time..), etc.

Actually this year has been an interesting one airplane-wise, my RC and full scale pilot buddy and I just bought a Pietenpol Air Camper which is about 95% built, so we have one wing to assemble and the wings to cover, the rest is all done. Not exactly extreme speed, but hey it's open cockpit. I don't even have my license yet but I'm working on it, besides when he's in the other cockpit I get to fly anyhow. My RC landings are still much better, I don't get nervous unless I'm sitting in it.

Oh yeah, I gave the kids one of those Hobbyzone Millenium PTU indoor helicopter thingies, not that I had any intention whatsoever of "trying" it out frequently or repeatedly demonstrating how to do this and that while they beg for a turn .

It's a riot, flies very well, and bounces well too. I can fly airplanes fine, but helicopters reduce me to a rank beginner or worse. At least this one doesn't remove body parts when (not if..) you hit yourself.
