Wow, its pretty strange to be called "Older" at 38 but yeah those young guns certainly have some skills! However, there's no substitute for experience.......guess I'll just need to get a video posted on the site and show those young bucks that the old men still know a trick or two! Ha! Seriously, I'm honored Mike and looking forward to the next fun day of flying!

Hey notice I did not put me in the old man category even though I'm 45 now! The young guns are those teenage and barely 20 guys who tend to amaze us with their flying skills these days. Most of you know what I'm talking about! Yeah, so I'm a NASCAR fan and stole the term from those commercials. haha Ok, I'll change the category to "pilots with more......years of experience"!!!!

Yeah but funny thing is even Forrest has 9 years rc experience now. But we have many more years of "life" experience.

Yeah, at 37 this month, I wasn't feeling the love in the "Old as crap but still flys lots" crowd...[]

Thanks for the edit, and the opportunity to hang with Team OMP!

It's been a long time since I've heard a person referred to as such. I think a mod needs to toss chevyguy2008...

I wish I could fly as good as Steve and Frank. Isn't that an ice cream? Steve and Frank?

What was wrong with what I asked?..... I had heard you guys were using a black for a team pilot and I wanted to know if that was true.
