GrumpE,

What are you doing, trying to race one of those younger kids downhill or something? What Happened?

Glad to see you were well enough to get some pictures of your car posted and a Dumbo thread started.

Attached are a few pictures of Robert's Car. Check out the flag on the Horizontal stab.


Later,
Omaha

Long story that involves a wet moss covered wood bridge and a "larger" female walking in the middle of the trail.[&:]

Nothing broken but some pretty good road rash and bruises.

Should be A OK by the weekend. May try to slap Dumbo together one of these nights so we can test him before monday. You available anytime?

I can be available most any evening, except Friday. Will you be coming to the meeting tonight?

Yes that is a YS .63 4-stroke on RGreen's Car. It only weighs 3/8 of an once more than the .46FXi engines I run. It is balanced and ready for him to stop by and get everything programed in his Tx. With a 12X6 prop, it only has 1 inch of ground clearence. I may talk him into putting a 3 blade 11X7 prop on it for better prop to ground clearence.
