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...???

I was tiling the shelf in my trailer last night and ran out of tile with about a 4' x 6" strip left to cover. Of course the hardware store no longer has the tiles I was using (b&w checks)......figures....

I finally have some time off after the short weekend at the D.O.G.S. That means that I was finally able to get the camping gear out of the van, and put the riser back in for hauling planes.

Getting ready to load up and head for the field. 87 degrees, 46% humidity, 12mph wind at 80 degrees to the runway. Not a day for the small stuff.

I use this site to find my weather information. http://www.usairnet.com/weather/

This site has been discussed in the forums but I love it. The closest site for weather they have is about 30 miles away but that's close enough be be pretty accurate. I attached a couple of screen shots.

Well, time to load the planes.

Everyday I use RealFlight because yes it is amazing but also to try new 3D stuff!! And to me the Rolling Harrier is the most annoying! I can get basically a semi circle while rolling but then starts to descend and thats when I lose it completely!! I WILL get it, it just will take time.........alot of it!!! Ahhhhhhhh

So what do you think?

Many times folks read my screen name and automatically think that I have a 50%plane. Obviously that's a good conclusion, but that wasn't the meaning. (and no I'm not a little punk rapper wannabe)

My screen name comes from something my Grandmother said to me one day a couple years about my life being 50% airplane...(i.e. half my time was spent unduly on airplanes) Unfortunately, she was wrong, Now that I've calculated, my life is somewhere over 60% airplane. Tell me I'm not addicted! I currently work 9 hours a day on full scale aircraft, come home and study about aircraft and RC planes, fly RC on the weekend and week nights, etc.. About the only time that I'm not messing with something related to airplanes is when I'm sleeping!(right next to my 55% Giles plans... LOL!)

I got home from the DOGS about 3:30 am Sunday morning. I had to work a 24 hour shift on Sunday.

I enjoyed the trip. Being in an area filled with so much avaitaion history is always very humbling.

Spending time with friends and fellow FlyingGiants is always worth the trip.

The photos from the event and musem are posted in the Media gallery.

Today i edited the video shot from last night.

I got it on YouTube, and it's currently uploading here, to the member galleries...

I picked a bad time to upload it though, haha.

Well I went to the heli fly-in at Mooresville this morning and had a blast, those guys but on a great event. I took over 500 photos and now I have to go through them and throw out the junk! I'll post up the pics in the heli forum when I've got them sorted.
