Re: Blue Foamie

Hey, off the subject, have you had a chance to see War Horse???? It's a movie well worth seeing... Very true WWI scenes and fantastic photography.....
Now, back to the proper subject............ Tunes.............. Well you cold have used one of the Beatle tunes, like Yellow submarine??????????? ha ha...
Hey, great video Gaston, now you have me thinkin 23"..... Got one free??????? ha ha..
I'm not keen on using your horns, they don't give me a thrill, so, gonna use the tried and true horns, Micro style with connectors, swivel much better and better control, I think..
Itchin to try er out on the 15th, darn, all of 7 days to wait yet, plenty time to finish my buildin of the 20"er tho....
Now now fellows, no more fightin............. ha ha....

Hi Art
Try to keep the weight down, the closer you are to 2oz. AUW, the better it will fly. I love the foam horns, they are light and simple, never had one break, I guess I'll have to go down there and put one together with you guys. You better put that 23" together before the 15th, I'm shipping it today, it only takes an hour to build.

Re: Blue Foamie

It was quite busy at the gym today, there were people and foamies everywhere, kind of well organized chaos. We were very fortunate to welcome a friend from Bracebridge, Graydon, a good pilot and a great guy.


Here's a pic of Graydon and his Fanfold homebuilt Mayhem, it hovers and flies very well, nice work.

I was forced at a young age to become a graduate of the DARE program in grade school! And they made us watch some disturbing movie called reefer madness!


Music reminded me of that! Im a good boy my only addiction is these dam Heli's and cigarette's!

Let me know if you come down this way, I'll join you.

I still have the Sudbury trip in mind, I'm aiming for spring time.
