When I went to the TAS last year, I swore I'd do my best to never miss one.

Well, as fate would have it, a buddy of mine qualified to fly in the Sportsman class this year. He called me and asked if I'd be his caller for the contest. "Well Nick, I'd have to think about it...HECK YEAH!!"

Took me a matter of seconds for that decision.

See ya'all there!!!

Man, I'm sitting here at home, in uniform for work due to the fact that I'm the back up crew tonight. Wishing I was out in Vegas hanging with the crew for the Huckfest.

I guess I will have to settle for the Terre Haute Air Fair tomorrow. Looking forward to watching the full scales do their thing. There is a great line up of pilots including Skip Stewart, Jurgis Kairys, Gene Soucy, and others.

Another short day. Not a real good one.

Started out by stretching the high-start. Ranged test the sailplane, not good receiver screwed up. Pulled the receiver out of the skydiver and put in the sail plane. Good range test. In an hour of attempts I never could get a good launch (Normally not a problem) Longest flight 4 1/2 min.

Got the 30% out wings on, radio test - good, fuel. Went to put the hatch on and found one of the mounting lugs broke. De-fuel, disassemble and back in the van.

Was just about to give it up for the day when a man and his boy stopped by to see. I put the wing on the Big stik and flew one flight. 12 min wrung the sucka out. Decided to stop on a good note.

Now time to unload and repair the hatch and check out the bad receiver. I hope that the problem is a bad crystal. This receiver is the one that was in my skydiver when he did his dirt dive.

Got a chance to see this movie with Monica last weekend, and all I gotta say is this - Academy awards, best movie of 2007. It's like american pie, animal house, road trip, and van wilder all wrapped up in one. Don't wait for the DVD, get in the theatre NOW!

And an interesting factoid... You know where Blink 182 got its name? From the movie Scarface starring Al Pacino (yes, Wilson Chaparro's evil step brother). That movie held the record for the most uses of the "F" word - 172 times. "Blink" meaning "beeeep".... Get it?

Superbad smashed the record using the F word something like 195 times.

And for the record, I hate going to the movies. The last movie I saw was the last Star Wars, I was soo ticked off at these kids that were yappin whilst heavily engaged in a gummy worm induced crack binge, that I got free return tix that sat in Monica's wallet for 3 years. We used 'em to see superbad. Madmax 1, Edward's Cinema 0.

12 stars.

I know this is slightly off the topic of rc planes but what gives you the biggest laugh in life? To me, some of the comedians are just unbelievable and get a laugh all the time!! My humour may be different but watch this clip!! His name is Bill Bailey! How can you not laugh

I guess. Just found this on Break.com while killing time this Sunday evening. This homemade flamethrower video kicks ass, but the total lack of cohesion in the middle of the video, where the dudes roll a 70" TV down stairs makes it a true gem. Brilliant.

well i started around the year 2000 but my Dad has been in it for 40+ years so for us it quickly became a way of life - these are pics taken as I progressed through the hobby with my many planes - I hope you enjoy the sharing - My Dad tought me the ropes from flying to building also the discipline related to get to the top.

this pic is of my first plane an thunder tiger olympic with a K&B 25 that my had use for the last 20plus years - this engine still goes and I have kept the plane for nostalgic reasons

the other plane is a TT trainer which taught me and mt brother to fly

I have just been thinking over the past few days that there is so much RC associated stuff in the US! Such as Joe Nall every year, Tucson Aerobatic Shootout, SEFF, TopGun and loads more. Even the every weekend fun by everyone! LOL When you think about it, it kinda makes you feel bad that your missing so much of it! Obviously not the people living there but others, eg. Me!! Even the youth masters, that is awesome but cant do it!! You get my drift...???
