Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Thank-you Mike.
I'm trying to fix my group I built to send out a little update here/there. Comprised of about 27 contacts. Send the first 5 days to three. Arlene being one of them to check my work. But I can get it fixed up tonight. Great Wi-Fi here in Watson Lake.


My new signature should read something like:

"The Alaska Hi-way is not for those prone to fights in a vehicle"

-or-


"A successful marriage, step one surrender the road map"

I need to download my daily photo's. We stopped in at the Yukon R/C club today. Nice field.

Glad to hear the GP176 is still pulling the big Sukhoi well.
Did the radio program feel good. Hope it only requires a little custom fitting.
Sure miss the big Sukhoi.

If Arlene has time for the map it means you aren't pushing the bus hard enough Dale!

The sukhoi flies very well. I warmed up with a pau sukhoi first to settle my nerves. After checking how it handled and touch and goes the nerves went a way. The TBD engine runs very smooth. Now all i have to do is get the 61 that nice. Not today though.Its a 3w day. And on a note to make Jack happy I am almost chint free. mmvvs, 3w and gp for me. Still can't decide if the da85 is going to get a chance.
