Wow, great Idea S.W. As usual, I tend to be one of the last ones to stumble on to the good stuff. I too found this thread on someones sig.

I fly stuff too, and would also be willing to help equal out the cost of shipping where necessary. You just let me know how/when?

So if it's not too late, Is there a spot on your map for Lancaster, Ohio?

Stink,

Count me in! I see nobody from Arizona yet, so I'll step up. I came in too late to get in on the Tigermoth World Tour, so this sounds perfect!

Please put a dot on Phoenix!!

Don, I am happy to report that the Stickers made it here yesterday evening, (work called me in before I could get a post in) I like the fact that they are of the New Design!!

I faxed off today the official entry to Guinness. so that is moving!!

Gotcha Pat!! more Desert sand on WG1.. I love it!!

I will put up the new map today, with a proposed route.

Hi All

Having only just read the entire thread, and knowing that it's coming to Australia, I thought WG1 better be photographed in the capital of Australia, Canberra. So, I'm in and will be happy to share the cost of postage out of both Australia and New Zealand.

Stink, let me know what you need from me to be involved.

Cheers
Damian

SoP: Yep I had read that you were going to do some travelling . I may be able to put you up for a night or two, depending on my work, when the time comes.

Cheers
Damian

PS Nice Wing Dragon, where did you get it from?

Beauty mate , Thanks for the offer , Im bringing my caravan , but wont reject any hospitality I searched everywhere and found the ONLY place which had the 4ch one was an ebay dealer in Sydney , and found out that they have spares also , so if you want one and have your own hardwear it'd be cheaper to just get the main bits Ian http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....8397&rd=1&rd=1

Well if your bringing the van you can definately stay, you see I live on 5 acres just out of Canberra, plenty of room for you to park the van. And also plenty of room for flying.

Thanks for the link.

Cheers

Somebody mentioned something about others in Japan... I'm already too tired and drunk to read back. Are there others here that are in the loop?

Just a question, again sorry for not reading back but is this a lipo setup so that we can cut down the shipping weight (no battery)? Participant's own RX, battery etc?

Yeah, pilots on the Tigermoth World Tour actually signed the plane itself. Should we do that, or just sign the logbook?

I was told to butt out, that's what I've been doing, will wait for you to get this organized and that's why I'm not subscribed to the thread, nor contributing to it any more, PM me when you are ready to get this started.
