Hugh, those pics are awesome, makes a almost look good, it's refreshing to witness the enthusiasm displayed weekend after weekend since we started six or 7 years ago. For me, I look forward to the weekends every winter, there's so much to learn and so much fun to be had every time.
Thanks Hugh for nice pics and your relentless devotion to the hobby.

At least this way, I'll be ready for the NEW one... Oh ya, and a supply of Foam to Foam glue....
Congratulations Gaston, Your one heck of a guy, see ya March 6th for some lessons on how to fly......

Re: Blue Foamie

Hi Art
To be honest, Hugh found those servos, he actually gave me 3 of them to try, they're a bit of a pain to change the plugs but it only happens once, it's worth it, they are light. As far as new models, Ray is the programming guru, all I do is ask him to create a file for a certain model, we discuss the layout and he comes up with the needed files, he's one of the best. I'm very fortunate to have friends like Ray and Hugh.

Manitoba Re: Blue Foamie

Hey Foamball

This is a busy time of year for MAAC board members but I have put the seminar on the possible list.
The Klenkster is a good friend and fellow board member and we are in touch regularly........yesterday for example.
The Feb issue of the magazine runs a little late because of all the Annual General Meeting content that it must carry at this time of year.

Re: Blue Foamie

Hi Gaston,
On the subject of drawings. Would it be possible to also post the drawings as a dxf file as well as a pdf.
I finally got the vacuum box made and tried it out yesterday. It worked as expected and makes it easy to route great chunk of foam and leave a very thin film behind. will take pics today and post.

Paul

Re: Blue Foamie

Crossing fingers and toes: hope they are around 20" wingspan!


Can we reserve a spot on the order list right away? (even if they are not 20" or less?)
