I'd be more than happy to fly the Sydney, Australia leg then post it onto the next pilot.

Although I am a bit worried that by the time it gets downunder it might have gain so many extra ounces/pounds with all these stickers it will just sit there and look good rather than fly.

I would volunteer to do a stop by I still crash to much and there is no way I would want to be the end of the trip around the world. I would like to see it when it comes close to Oklahoma, if nothing else just so I can say I seen it in person. Maybe I can impose on Grasshopper when he get's it and show up just to watch it fly in Missouri.

You might as well fly it too. Then you can put a Tulsa Drillers sticker on it.

OK you talked me in to it. Depending on where Balil lives in Texas I could pick it up from you and take it to him. Maybe even hook up with Rabbitcreek in McAlester and give it some air time in Oklahoma.

If you've got a place to fly, I don't mind coming to Tulsa. I have a sister in Tulsa that I could visit too.

Sounds great. I do have a sweet spot to fly at 91st St and highway 169. I would still be willing to drive it at least to the DFW area or go in on the shipping cost with you to get it to it's next destination.

Uk Pilot volunteering!

I live in the South East [not too far from London]

I have a Wing Dragon too! Spares and repairs would be no problem.

I do AP. Putting a camera on the Dragon for an aerial video would be no problem.

Count me in.

Paul.
