Normally, I'd say yes I'm joking, but this is the rare occasion where I'm serious. I lost the book.. not that it had that very good information anyway, but now I have 6* positive pitch at mid.
I was joking about the 'hurry up' part, I'll wait patiently and will memorize the information contained when you get it posted, but I am serious about wanting to see it.

Well I am in a RUSH now to get a tom of stuff done!
Mark at RumpRyder kicked me off along with all my other videos!
I now need to recompress all those and get them uploaded here too..... This will be an all day job to get those up as well as the HDX vids up.

Ray, I have ALL the HDX videos done I just have to get them compressed and uploaded.

That would be nice to see, but you already have enough on your hands so don't make it a priority. I just like to know what you think of the bird.
