Everyone knows when you are there, Dan! Just kidding ...

D: myself, Greg, and Topaz had an excellent time! Thank you, and thanks to all involved for the hospitality. Second to none. And thank you SO much for the chance to ride in the Skymaster and take aerial photos! Add one more to my list of unique airplanes to fly in--it rocked! I need to do a little bit of Photoshop on them (hazy, overcast skies aren't conducive to great photos unfortunately), but I hope to post a couple of them up here soon.

Actually John they're working great! Had off and on rain most of the way home, and the wipers went down all the way each time.

When my wife noticed the wipers in the down position, she asked me how she was going to recognize me on the highway now. I asked her what she meant by that, and she said that she always knew when it was me coming because she could see the wipers straight up. LOL!!

Yeah I didn't have time to really look for anyone but tried when I did have time .Nope,I don't have anything HeliFreak because im too damn broke to buy a hat,shirt ect...
I spent all my time at the funfly trying to fix my 700N before the 3D contest.I can tune a motor really good but for some reason the fuel was jumping all over the place at idle and had some foam during flight and wanted to lean out around half tank as air bubbles where going to the carb.Flew in the 3D contest with both needles 2 full turns out just so it didn't lean out at all,already signed up so no turning back ..
Had Tim Jones fly it and see what he can come up with.Said something isn't balanced so motor will come out in the next day or so..All in all I still had a awesome time,just wish I could of chatted and fly more..Next time we need to let each other know what were driving or something..
