This is very true Lorne. You have been known to bend a stick in the past.

Too add a little context since we know jack is more a tabloid kinda of guy, this incident is well documented in the jeti threads. The RX owner added some optional switch stick ends. In other pictures, you can see where he scored the stick tube either removing the old or adding the new ends. Looked like he used pliers or channel locks on pretty small tubing! There was quite a debate about it in jeti circles about two months ago. The concensus is poor installation was a fault.

Jack go back to feeding and nursing and crushing the flightless engine collection you maintain at the sanctuary!

!!!!!!yawn!!!!!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Jack, my day was both good, and productive.
The weather is great, my new appreciation for the simple things in life, has me driving around in the start of harvest. Yes a great time here in Alberta.

Hey, I did a little park flying last eve. Attained 1548ft above launch. Not even specked out yet with a 2M glider. Liking this Telemetry stuff. But talk about looks. The neighbours are watching the funny old guy sitting against the goal post with his toy airplane controller, and headphones on now. But, no toy in sight. Hmm.

Really looking forward to our (now) annual get-together, and fly. I will have ice cream on site, my friend.

-Have you heard the light humor regarding Brodie yet?

He claims Dan-O is pushing him a little.

-Dale-

I agree Dale, the simple things.

Be watchful, the neighbors might decide you belong in 5 south!!

Yes 2 weeks for a great time and oh man some ice cream!!

No, what's Dan-O pushing Brodie on? Getting his 100cc going for the F.Fly??
