He passed?!? What happened? I was reading through here since I've been gone awhile and wondering where some of the old crew was...

Oh...I see. Cancer. Happy Trails Aaron, even if I'm a little late. Hope you're in a better place where the ground just springs you back into the air and the trees move OUT of the way!

Just call me X! (or Gary works, too.)
Another signature landing! Somebody help me find all the pieces...

I originally thought it pertained to rotor diameter, but the "450 size" rig I have has a main rotor diameter of 508mm, so by my original reasoning, would put it in the "500 size". A TREX 600 has a diameter of something in the area of 1400 or so mm, give-take, so maybe they should just do the "small-medium-large" format for them...kinda like a ordering a pizza...
