The third picture there is hovering over my friend (camera man) while he layed on the grass, I was only about 2-3 feet off the ground when he took it, was really funny scaring him

John, I can get some video today I guess. Only problem is my digital camera has no zoom, so I will have to do the 50 x 50 rule. No further out then 50 feet and no higher. I can get video, the only thing I dont like is I have aol, and uploading a decent video will never work on my computer. So I got to figure out a way to have my buddy upload it

The plane is better looking than you! How did you do the checker board graphic?

Nice work shortman.... You did the airbrushing yourself? I've been wanting to try that... My buddy Gator is just getting into it.

Are you kidding?? Shortman's idea of "scratch building" is when he has to install his own prop!

I don't have the equipment nor an airbrush to even attempt some freehand painting. Josh Glavin (Joshflies3d) did it for me when he built 2 identicle planes. Now only one because he snapped his into the ground[&:]. Anyways, he just made a cardboard template and sprays over it with the gun in plain terms.

Chucky, I did make my own airplane on AutoCAD 2000lt so you can't say I don't know what true scratchbuilding is[8D].


Anyways, 17 flights so far! Landing gear is finally shipped out and I should have it tommorow!
