    RE: Jet Flying @ Thunderbird Field - Ft. Worth, TX

    No worries Al, we'll catch you next time.

    A pretty good day, Ihad the most luck - flameout way downwind (damn gas gauge) and landed clean in the grass - not a scratch but could've been UGLY a few feet either way. Went on to get 6 or 7 flights before day's end. My luck ran out a few minutes ago however when Iwas getting the Bobcat out of the car and stripped a rudder servo Those are damn expensive too! Oh well, off to Dreamworks.....

    Conditions were marginal with kinda crummy overcast visibility and less than cooperative wind but a good time was had inspite. Bruce's viper jet really steals the show - that thingis huge! Good flying boys!

    RE: Jet Flying @ Thunderbird Field - Ft. Worth, TX

    How dare you guys fly at Benbrook w/o me! [8D] Nice video, David - I'll be showing that to others at work tomorrow! I'm glad it appears that most had fun...

    I'm a bit bleary eyed right now - I just finished another 3 hours of rub-on rivets on the Barf... I still think I can finish it this year! [sm=stupid.gif]

    RE: Jet Flying @ Thunderbird Field - Ft. Worth, TX

    Dave, the Dutch scheme looks pretty cool... What's with the pilot? Did he slide down in his seat, or is it a 4 ft tall pilot, full scale? I wanna see that camera too...

    Ronnie, don't insult the pilot that was provided with my $199 Skymaster cockpit.

    I think they were looking at the cockpit of a Japanese F-2 when they decided on the pilot's scale.

    David, Your "recon pod" has motivated me to either get one like yours or pull my fly cam out of thejunk drawer - aerial video is good fun - especiallywith your commentary!!!

    take care !

    Dan
    Be it an ARF , an RTF , or a Kit that took 2000 hours to complete , if you don\'\'t FLY it , what Good is it ?
