Well, 2010 was a great year. The club problems from 2009 dissipated with the new club officers refocusing the club on flying and having fun. Man that really helps the atmosphere at the flying site. Much of our club's members are retired and some not in such good health. And I know the attitude for them is they want to go out doing what they love, flying not arguing. Thanks to the club members that see the light. Speaking of the flying site, our club finally bit off the chew, and replaced the building and cover. Great donations for some key club members made that all possible. Check out the new duds. http://www.lrccky.com/ Also I have to thank Big John for the help on the web site. It sure makes a big difference when you have help on project like these. Even though I had less flights in 2010 than I did in 2009, it was still a great year. Added several new gas planes to the hangar, two YAKs, two SUKHOIs.

Now to turn our sights on 2011.
My new years resolution will be to fly more, work less and fix those planes that beg to go flying!
I made Oshkosh in 2009, and I want to make Joe Nall and a Huchfest in 2011.
My new job will likely make that possible.
Numb thumbs on new years day will likely be a cold ass day!

My Areoworks Edge 540 needs a couple warm days to have it ready for a maiden.
I love my old version DLE30 on my SU29, and can't wait to see how the 55 pulls the Edge.

I also want to voice my appreciation for the folks at Flying Giants. I love following all the regulars.
So cheers to all of you all that love the same hobby that i do!

A simple way to illuminate for small models is using LEDs, two LEDs are sufficient. The resistor used can be between 560Ω to 2200Ω. The low value of resistor will be greater intensity of LEDs. Below details in photos.

Well I have a thread on another forum and it seems that I may be "Hyper-lite" Crazy. Or obsessed with planes that are NOT over weight. I picked up a 38% Columbo Anderson Extra a couple months back and its been sitting sort of waiting for me to get the right deal on a 150. I have been reading Sensei's threads for almost two years I started like many of you calling the guy nuts. He calmly worked his ass off and proved me wrong. Well since then I have wanted to do my own project and since then Aerotech has started to kit these designs. UP to this point all I have been doing is sending links and sharing as much of Sensei's work that I can and I may have gone a tad over board with the "FANBOY" stuff really just three airplane companies out there for me right now. So I may be biased.. NO I am.. Now you all know I have a real hard time buying anything new. Hell if I could get used eggs and milk I would. (speaking of chickens I will have a coup for next spring) no more buying eggs for this guy..OK, So I'm sitting looking at this Columbo and like everything else its on the list..I grab my 106 and wouldn't you know it.. IT fits right on the dang motor box.Name: striped (12).jpg

Description: I spent the next couple hours getting a game plan together and bam the fuse is just about done. I plan to finish up the fuse 100% recover the works before I even start the wings and stabs. If you have a crashed or a kit sitting that is considered to old or "imac" plane screw it strip her down and get to reading Sensei's threads break out the dremel.. Man If I can do it anybody can.. Not to mention I am dong something I thought once impossible..

Ok, well it has been brought to my attention lately that I may have too many projects going on at any given time. So I thought about it. What is too many? I figure right now I have roughly 100 active projects granted not all flying but a solid 100. Now I probably have another 100 or so on the back burner and another 100 or so on my mind. I sort of have what they call Adult Attention Disorder defect. I am sort of wired different than most. I need a lot going on to keep my mind straight. I have four airplanes in some sort of build/repair process. I have five helicopters in repair or update process. I don't think that is too bad. I make my own fuel I have a 38 ford truck that is going to be a Diesel powered rat rod, I love to wake board and paddle board I make both my own boards and paddles. I have two paddles almost done for next years season. I will need to build at least three more for the kids and my wife wants a new one. I have a house that is in constant state of remodel and repair. I am going to school full time. The boat is getting a complete interior redo and a motor freshen up. I need a new slider built for next summer. The wife wants a pontoon boat I found one but it needs to be redone from the trailer up. My two daily drivers both have well over 200K. I have two more Mercedes Benz turbo diesels in some sort of disorder. I am constantly buying selling or bartering. I have a gun problem but it way sorted out for now. Airplane trailer needs complete redo and repaint. Red to match the truck. I found a camper for the big truck today started looking yesterday I bartered the repair of chicken coops for the rig. It hardly leaks so I can get it fixed pretty quick. sold three cars this month bought four more. Now that I think about it I don't see a problem.. I get almost everything I start finished. Some projects get sold or parked due to finances. I figure one door closes another opens.

Man what a great year.. I got all settled in out here in Texas.. Although not perfect the family is getting on with it well. One of my concerns with moving out here was the loss of my flying friends. Granted I will see and talk to almost all of them either here or at TFC but nothing can take the place of time at the field or in the shop.. Anyways I was amazed at the vibe and the attitude about going to fun flys. Man everybody is in and driving 4 to 12 hours is the norm, heck I even found some guys flying full scale in just to chill for a couple hours at the RC field. I had an amazing season and normally I am totally burnt buy this time and I am ready to put it up or my normal its time for a change and I either grab a helo of a glider but not this year I can't seem to get enough. I have projects stacked up in the shop I have been out there almost daily and making good progress on multiple projects. I am so looking forward to my very first indoor event. Yep never before been to an indoor event. I am already chomping at the bit for next years schedule to hit so I can start scheming ways to get on the road. I am going back to school later this month so I maybe cant get out for the full length but I'm looking forward to some serious fun with all my new friends.. I guess I just wanted to say thanks to everybody I meet this year and for the incredible reception I got at every venue I made it to this year.. With only one more event to make this year I couldn't be happier with the outcome and I truly can't wait for the 2011 season to start popping.
