That's weird... I had a "friend" who was planning a huge RC park in DFW and then ended up with a string of "illnesses"... right after he screwed/weaseled/cheated several people out of money and in one case, an entire hobby shop.

Taken by an iPhone 4 on December 12th. Looks legit to me, guess he really is injured.

Going from having all the money to do this, including hiring 5 to 6 people with great knowledge of the hobby and paying them very good salaries, to losing his job and having to sell an airplane to support his family? Where did all the money go that was going to pay for the project and the employee salaries? Why not sell the land to support the family? Looks like motocross tracks to me in the pictures a few pages back, plenty of them in Florida, I used to spend my winters there training and practicing for upcoming motocross seasons. The picture of the hand looks bad. We have a hand surgeon amongst us it would be nice to see what he thinks from the looks of the hand. His thumb is still attached and looks untouched, don't see why he would be out of the hobby. If I lost my whole hand, I would be figuring out how to fly with the stub.

I tore the unal collateral (nerve ) along with practically tearing my thumb clear off my hand when I raced Motorcycles yet I can still use a radio.... Hell, after my first cast and opreation I was riding three days later so I highly doubt an injury would stop a project like this is it was ever a serious endeavor.... many pilots ( and even motocross racers ) have had serious injuries and keep on going....

He must have stuck his hand in the prop while it was running, hard to beleive that's just from a kick back, looks like a couple hit's between the tips of the fingers to the top of the hand, looks like it hurts like hell too. I wondered about it looking like a burn too, but I guess it could look that way from the trauma to the hand? Regardless, if this is really him I wish him the best for a good recovery. It's just ashame, I wish this guys validity could be proven, so many seem unsure about him, including myself, someone from Florida must know this guy....

I agree! I also saw a post he made not long ago indicating he was single and no family but yet here he is posting an add to sell all his stuff to support his kid? This guy is fishy.

He should sell his Farrari first - he could feed his family a lot longer with that cash then he could selling his 35%.
