The printer requires a minimum of 24 shirts. Once I get a design together, I will post a picture on the thread. If I can reach 24 shirt requests, I will have them made. This thread is the only place I will be avertising, and all shirts would be made as requested, number and size. They will be sold at cost, should be around $10 each. I think I can get them in different shirt colors, but the ink color has to stay the same (white). I plan to have the bulk of them in a shade of vert (green).
i'm sure they'll be great, whatever the final product may look like.
sign me up for 2 large please!

NOW THAT WAS BORING AND A WASTE bc i got nothing but ball swingers complaining like lil girls.. and i found the heli world to be nothing but a bunch of back stabers!! and its still that way.. I like this small town flying and watchn great pilots to terrible pilots...IT IS WHAT IT IS....

ahhhhhhh...errrrrr????????***? i dont fly giant planes , why in the world would i want a shirt for a tour for giant scale planes like last years???????

and errrr ahhhhhhh??????????"WT ur always scrutinizing"....waht the hells that mean! posted a link to a cool train set?i dont follow.?

and my "comments" are meant to be jokes , if people cant take a joke like they dish out , screw em.! i can care less if people can't laugh.

i also dont believe anyone can "do it" cause if they could , they would be.giant scale and me didnt mix right, tried it , didn't like it.

yeh , there is backstabbing in the "heli" world(usa was built on backstabbing ) , but as we all know as fact ,IT DON"T STOP THERE!!!...,i need not go back 2 years to the beginning of everyone here(local club) getting into big planes and the talks and stuff thats gone around.much more i know of in the plane world then helis thus far. and most was in here.(no reason to say what or anything cause "most" everyone here already knows.) just think back to this thread title being changed.....................dot dot dot ...thats just a start.

if you count me givin crap to scott about things(givin each other crap about "you suck etc etc"). thats a 2 way street for sure!and all in good fun. cant think of 1 time i said anything to anyone about there flying skills other then foolish disregard to safety,,,,, and lack of enforcement.(which i know you agree with me on)

anyway , that got off topic of teeshirts. so , yes ...teeshirts that are universal in the hobby is a great idea.as i had already said.hence , "im interested"

This is my 4 year old, Mary. My youngest of 3 girls. When her sisters would go off to school last year, it was just me and her. I would buckle her in a jogging stroller, give her a juice box and goldfish crackers and take her over to the runway and I would do a couple of flights. Her older sisters dont give a hoot about rc, and I assumed Mary would be the same. I got out my RealFlight sim, and laptop tp practice. I just left it running and did something else. She played it about a half hour yesterday, and I found her playing again today. I havent said a word to her, and I'm not going to help untill she asks. If you look, the plane is flying. (admittedly not for long) If she decides to join me at this, I will make sure she gets the best clothes and a car for her sweet 16.

What a classic pic!! It's also an interesting experiment to see if she figures out the controls without being told.

Whether it has a plane car or a freakn boat on it if it supports something who cares... JUST bc there isnt a heli on it it wouldnt stop me from getn it thats the point!!! who cares whether it has a heli...

That's real cute until she turns 6 and is flying better than most of us ! Ha Think about what Justin Jee was doing with heli's at 6 years old.
I can see her x mas list now ! all giant scale planes and parts but in Jays handwriting !
