Brodie I just take the amount the aircraft cost divide by the amount of flights. That's the only reason I count. The worst so far I had to take the cost and divide by minutes flown. $300 per minute was the cost. But what a great flight.

I'm not sure Jeff.. I just set all my planes so that they are hands off inverted or right side up on a level fly by.

But Lethbridge this eve may be fun. I'm hungry enough.

About 500km of mentally fitting out the Comp ARF Sukhoi, ha-ha. I'm sure it will fly yet this fall.

Hey dale. I haven't caught up on the conversation but I seen this post. Me and lorne are at the trout farm until Sunday then we are throwing a plane each in our trucks and heading to Bawlf for the day.

On the plus side I made it out 5 min before dark and got a maiden on my 100cc yak. Omg!!!! What a beauty flier and the gp 123 on the hype cans sounds so amazing. We will get a video Tomorrow when it's not such a rush.

Yes I have come around in the last two weeks. This new Sukhoi is very inspirational. Some call it a Brick. But I don't mind.

Might be time for a new signature. Inspired by Brodie, I love Brodie.

Who calls it a brick??

Jeff, he want's you to call him mr. potato head.

A few pages back Brodie referred to my Comp ARF as a Brick. Well they fly like a Brick.
I don't remember if he has ever flown a Comp ARF. The only candidate that comes to mind would be the one Dan-O sold to Greg.

Brodie, have you ever flown a Comp ARF?

Good Morning boys, from Lethbridge.

-Dale-

Manny, wake up read your e-mails!
