Thanks for all the pics Don. It was a pleasure to have you stay at the Taj Mahal with me again this year.

It was quite an honor being part of Laine's Plane and being a part of building one of the first two ParaCuda prototype kits. Winning best new R/C Plane award is amazing!

It was a wet, muddy, disorganized SEFF. But still fun none the less. Can't wait til next year.

That stinks! Knowing Laine he will get her airborne.
I just hope to find out about it.

Glad you gents had a good time.

Thanks for all the pics Don. Sweet ass bike!

I don't have a short temper. I just have a quick reaction to B.S.

Thanks Birddog, it's easy to maintain, comfortable to ride, and can get me there in a hurry if I want to.

Gramps, Laine is already talking outrunner and may have a source for one that will fly it.He has the BAP hanging from the ceiling in Mac's hanger waiting for next year.

Bill thanks so much for letting us hang around and "camp" with you. It's rough sitting on the reclining couch, in front of the fireplace, watching TV. And rougher reaching in the frig for a cold beer.

Take care and thanks for posting at WattFlyer!!

Don
