    also - if you do use a LiFe or LiPo battery, don't do something stupid like I did and leave your TX on. Over discharging a lithium battery can ruin it.

    That's cool.. mine was around 78-79 also, if I remember correctly. Mine had an Enya .40, complete with Semco strap on muffler. Sadly, the Sweet Stik met it's fate one evening just about sunset...
