Dropped your name bro. Got me a set for $20usd!

Super08 also picked me up a 50mm CF tube from Tony at Pilot. He even cut it down to the 810mm needed. It's not too far away, so a few days at the most.

Thank-you, buddy!

Yhea I am just a old fart putting around,No mwnman stuff for me,At Least on the streets.I have pain still just sittingon the thing.So far I ve only been good for a short ride to the store or something.My back and legs and ankles arent so strong any more after all my surgeries and what not.I am in pain all the time any way I figure what the heck I may as well get a smile on my face once in a while.I call it the Cob Web Cleaner.

I'll use that term someday. Thanks for adding it to the repertoire, lol!

You know, my favorite color is blue, but this scheme is just way to kewl not to have. Canadian to boot, eh!

Haven't fired the engine up. Can't get this thing out of the basement, yet. Bad enough I had a quick trip to the ER cause I slipped on the stairs with my crutches doin' two at a time and landed square on the locked cast. Did it again this morning but in front of the wife, one at a time mind you....the look she gave me had a speech of a thousand words that I got in the few seconds when I picked myself up.

Well it looks like I'm not the only one with a bad day.....I need to get working on my Carf 540 since I "Dumb Thumbed" my Aeroworks Yak today . The past three days have been great flying weather. I've been flying both my Yak and Sbach and having a great time.

I've had many good flights with the Yak, but today, I just came out of a tumble and inverted flat spin too low, ran out of altitude and airspeed at the same time. And you know what that causes!
