Well I put in an order for FPV with a head set. just to ramp up the chick magnet factor. I found the tanks were not enough, so this will do it for sure!.

Merry Christmas to eveyone.

All the best in the New Year.

chick magnet? Oh boy, wait 'till you are married 30 years (like we are today) and that chick magnet thing rolls out the door!





That's all I need is one more voice in my ear!



Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope to get a new Sherman soon in the following days. That will be my sole present for Christmas.

What type of FPV gear?
I started looking at different options this week and reading up on how other tankers have installed their systems.
I've always believed that whoever can bring to market an integrated FPV built into a IR battle/detection system where tanks can actually battle through the systems, this niche hobby would explode (look at RC helicopters and how that expensive/niche hobby took off).

Happy Anniversary,

I have been married 27 years, Trust me the Chick magnet comment was only for comedic effect.

Todd

Fat Shark I think. I'll know more tomorrow.

While not tank related, I'm getting the new 1/200 scale Bismark from Trumpeter. It measures out to almost 50 inches in length, so it'll be fun to RC it.

Jim

PS, Don't worry, tanks are my first love. Oh I mean behind my wife of course LOL.

Don't what I'll get, but I've been asking for an NFL cheerleader the past 10 years or so. Santa only has to come through on this once and I'll be happy!!

If ever I have to get stuck in a chair (or again) I want it to look like that.

Minus the guns of course.
